Hotel Maria Kapel (HMK) is an artist-in-residence, exhibition space and cinema for contemporary visual art in the city centre of Hoorn; a historic town 40 kilometres north of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. HMK is a non-profit organization that aims to assist young as well as more established artists from all over the world in the production of new work and promote exchanges between national and international artists, cultural institutions and the public.
Once a year HMK sends out an open call for artists and curators to hand in a proposal for a residency period. A residency typically lasts for 4 or 8 weeks. During a stay in their guesthouse, residents are invited to develop, execute and present new work in the chapel/exhibition space and/or elsewhere in Hoorn.
HMK is looking for innovative projects that make full use of the unique opportunities offered. Preference is given to projects that take the context/history of Hoorn or surrounding area as a starting point to explore current socio-political issues. The beautiful chapel/exhibition space lends itself well for ambitious projects, and they prefer to facilitate projects that for one reason or other cannot (easily) be realised somewhere else.
Deadline: Thursday 1 June 2017.
