The Present of the Future

Multidisciplinary artistic residencies

The development of the project The Present of the Future thus began with the start of the application process for this competition and will continue throughout 2002 according to an open system, shared with a group of particularly important curators. Each of these curators will be in charge of designing an original project that still has some concrete details. The residencies will bring together three artists from different languages and a non-artist who will act as mediator. Although the emphasis is on the process and the discovery that the confrontation of languages gives rise to, each residency should be shared with plural audiences, from people interested in getting to know the inside of artistic processes to the concert communities involved by the mediator. From this process, in addition to sharing, a videographic and editorial memory will be left that should constitute an artistic object in itself.

So far, for the 2023/24 biennium, we have invited curators Miguel Palma, Miguel Azguime and AnneMarie Maes. Miguel Palma is a visual artist who appropriates the narratives of a modernity in permanent questioning to better reflect on the present and unfolds his creativity in a constructive drive that summons and problematises concepts such as progress, degeneration, speed and failure. Miguel Azguime, Portuguese composer, poet and percussionist, founded the Miso Ensemble with Paula Azguime, a flute and percussion duo, one of the most important Portuguese contemporary music groups. He also created the Sond'Ar-te Academy, a training centre, and O'Culto da Ajuda, an experimental music room. Annemarie Maes studied at the Sint-Lucas Academy in Brussels and specialised in anthropological documentary film at the Institute for Sound Image Culture in Brussels. Her most important ongoing works focus on ecological themes, such as Bee Laboratory and Urban Corridors, which installs urban laboratories and creates artistic objects built from monitoring bee colonies.
