REART ⇆ is a networked project for the promotion of artistic research involved in specific contexts, through three residences, a collective meeting-laboratory, and a digital archive of projects. It is promoted collaboratively by Idensitat, Casa Planas (Palma), La Escocesa (Barcelona) and Le BBB Centre d'Art (Toulouse).
Through the call made by REART ⇆ four projects have been selected to carry out artistic research residencies in three specific locations but with a common thematic framework around the concept of "transperiphery".
Of the four residences, two are onsite: one in Barcelona, with the support of La Escocesa, and another in Palma de Mallorca, with the support of Casa Planas. The third takes place virtually, with the accompaniment of Idensitat. The projects carried out in these residencies must be completed before December 15, 2022 and will be published on the REART ⇆ digital platform.
After the residencies, there will be a joint 4-day meeting organised at the BBB Centre d'Art in Toulouse, which will take place in November 2022, on which the three selected projects must participate. This meeting is understood as a complementary part of the residency and will be organised as a collective laboratory space combining time for production and reflection with meetings with professionals, to promote the launch of the research projects once the residencies are completed.
