The Watch & Talk artist-in-residency programme aims to create the conditions for genuine artistic turmoil. Young artists are invited to immerse themselves in the artistic projects presented at far° and to take the time to do some dynamic research, enhanced by discussions and with no production constraints. Assisted by Maëva Lamolière, the participants dedicate themselves to constructive criticism, by discussing and developing thought processes based on the artistic approaches featured at far°. The residents also enjoy a privileged connection with the guest artists who introduce them to their work and creative process. Since this year, the Watch & Talk residency is designed in collaboration with the following four Swiss festivals: La Bâtie-Festival de Genève, Belluard Bollwerk Fribourg, Theaterfestival Basel and Zürcher Theater Spektakel.On a sponsorship basis, each of these festivals put forward an artist to participate in the residency.
Watch & Talk is supported by Pro Helvetia - Swiss Arts Council.
