Pluralistic work within the arts 

The Research Pavilion #5 aims to emphasize the continuum between experimental artistic practice and artistic research, as well as create spaces and opportunities for pluralistic research-oriented work within the arts. 

The residencies are open to all artists and artist-researchers, regardless of the institutional or freelance status, mode of practice or medium. 

“Puzzled Together” about the global challenges 

The tagline for the Research Pavilion #5 is “Puzzled Together” framed by our current global challenges: the ecological sustainability crisis, post-pandemic reconstruction and geopolitical tensions. 

Puzzled Together conveys the idea of Artistic thinking is intrinsically characterised by pluralism and the capacity to create connections, giving art and artistic research a substantial potential for making a stand within the current situation. 

The Research Pavilion #5 seeks to identify and reinforce underexposed areas of artistic research through collaborative processes and develop the ideas and agencies that emerge from therein.
