Insanity has been imagined beyond universal norms. Therefore, it is a stigmatizing concept used by the rest of the society to define a marginal individual.
Artists are frequently being called insane. However, the art itself is developed not through ‘successfully rising’ artists, who are able to sell their artworks mainly thanks to their marketing strategies; instead the art is progressive through artists, who are often stigmatized with insanity and who have no place in a competitive art market. Nevertheless, these are real artists engaging in production, destruction and in a way rebellion.
In this context, we would like to invite artists to our residence in order to question the relationship between the artist and insanity.
