About the residency

This Reciprocal Residency is a partnership between CCA, Lithuanian Cultural Institute and Kaunas Artists’ House. The programme is entitled DeMo (Decoding Modernity) and have an aim to develop an experimental artistic framework for the critique of progress, which is often used as a synonym of modernity that can be perceived in a limited, West-centric manner. The very definition of ‘emerging’ is explained by the Cambridge dictionary in terms of centres of power; non-central places in relation to finance/political/cultural centres are often defined as emerging in both fields of business and the arts. For the Open Call the artists were invited to relate and reflect on the meaning of emerging. Can you emerge from nothing? Can emerging be an eternal state of affairs?
