Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 6 aprile 2010

Fundación Marcelino Botín, a Spanish institution created in 1964, launches a call for a new edition of the Art Workshop, to be directed by Mona Hatoum, and the 18th edition of the Visual Arts Grants. The call is international in both cases. Mona Hatoum Art Workshop It will be held between July 5 and 16, at the Villa Iris space, in the coastal city of Santander, in northern Spain. Mona Hatoum will select a maximum of 15 alumni and the workshop will be conducted in English. The Workshop will focus on a mixed media approach towards making artworks and engage in discussions on the issues of communicability of artistic ideas and experience. The call is open to anyone interested in experimenting with multimedia works of art (installations, photography, video, works with found and recovered objects, representations and other presentations of innovative ideas) who are willing to have a critical debate on their ideas with a group. Knowledge of Mona Hatoum’s work and a wish to learn from her creative process are important. Whoever wishes to participate in the workshop must send a photocopy of their National ID or Passport, personal info, CV, photographs of their recent work and a text in English stating the reasons for participating. Full information on the required documents is available on a PDF file, in Spanish or English, at The deadline for submitting applications for the Art Workshop is April 16, 2010. Mona Hatoum expressed interest since the mid 1980s in a series of works based on representations and videos focused mostly on the body. Since the early 1990s, her work approached ever more large scale installations and sculptures. She has developed a language where familiar and everyday life objects usually transform into strange, threatening, and even dangerous things. Fundación Marcelino Botín has organized a solo show of the artist in its Santander venue during the fall of 2010.
