This year’s edition of the Hombroich : Summer Fellows at the Raketenstation Hombroich is conceived as a discursive and performative event. The international group of artists will lodge at the guesthouse "Kloster" and they will gather to experiment with hybrid performance structures and explore new formats for presenting and making dance.
Given that today the large majority of dance artists do not have access to basic productions means, the resources and infrastructures of the contemporary dance scene will be critically reflected on during this encounter. It will serve as a starting point for the exchange of different practices that these artists have developed in their specific contexts in Iran, China, Serbia, Croatia, Germany, Belgium, France, and the USA.
During the Hombroich : Summer Fellows 2017 invited artists will examine and discuss concrete possibilities for creating non-standard dance formats that are material reflections of their working conditions, production means, artistic concerns, and modes of organisation.
Visitors will have the opportunity to join the participating artists on July 29th and August 2nd. These two open day sessions are an invitation to think together about political aspects of artistic works and actions.
Hombroich : Summer Fellows 2017 is supported by the Verein zur Förderung des Kunst- und Kulturraumes Hombroich e.V..
