residency duration: 07. June – 27. June 2019
residency location: Handwerkergasse, Weltkulturerbe Völklinger Hütte, Völklingen, DE
In the preparation for the exhibition at the Galery of HBKsaar, the group has spent three weeks in Saarbrücken and Völklingen, living and working together, collaborating, discussing and cross-contaminating their artistic practices.
The sleeping and studio spaces were located in the Handwerkergasse in the old Völklingen Ironworks. The Ironworks was built in 1873, closed for production in 1986 and declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1994. At the moment, the Handwerkergasse is used as studio spaces by the Faculty of Visual Arts Saar (HBKsaar).
