GROUP RESIDENCY happening 1st april - 10th april 2022 in AArhuS

10 days of ultimate sharing, discovering, experimenting and collaborating! 

.RAR stands for Rotating Art Residency – Riga, Aarhus, Reykjavik. Our intention is to create and facilitate temporary artist collective of emerging and professional artists from each of the three cities, to work and live together . The residency is organised by Institut for (X) and designed with Total Dobze Artcenter (Riga) and Fusk (Reykjavik). This residency will take place in Aarhus at Institut for (X).

This is for you if you want to: 

  • discover new ways to create artwork
  • share your splendor – your wisdom, know-how, different processes
  • receive and be open
  • co-create, host and facilitate.

This is not for you if you: 

  • want to solely build CV
  • looking for a classic residency to solely work on your own art practice
  • value perfection over fast failures
  • are not currently based in Riga, Aarhus or Reykjavik (greater Reykjavik area)

This is the first of several residencies taking place in Reykjavik, Riga and Aarhus, you will therefore be a part of shaping the .RAR way of facilitating residencies and temporary art collectives for the future.


Apply before 8th of February 2022 by sending a description about yourself, what you would like to gain from this residency and how you would like to contribute (max. 1 A4), to rar@iforx.dk . Residents will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large. Residents will not be selected by the size of their CV.

Travel expenses, accommodation and food (100 dkk/day) will be covered.

We strongly encourage women, folks of colour, queer, non-binary + to apply. It is our intention to create a diverse group in which all participant feel safe to express themselves.
