residency.ch, PROGR - Zentrum für Kulturproduktion, Bern, CH
1 - 31 April 2017
We spent April in Bern at residency.ch at the PROGR Art Centre. The aim of the residency was to research the local arts scene and forge cultural connections between artists from the UK, Poland and Switzerland. Additionally, we were there working with Konrad Smoleński on a new commission - a performance and sound installation that involves working with Greek composer Yannis Kyriakides.
The PROGR is an artistic centre located in the heart of Bern, consisting of ateliers, art production and event spaces, and numerous cultural institutions. The residency.ch apartment is located on the top floor of the left wing of the PROGR. Its location inside the PROGR makes it an ideal starting point for visiting local artists and curators; it is a perfect artistic headquarters in Bern from which to research the local arts scene.
