Back Issue


March 2013 Issue 11

The history of the idea of the residency stretches far behind in time to over a century ago, contrary to popular assumptions. Yet, very little work remains on this trajectory in the absence of a repository that charts the contemporary history of the residency. Most research that exists on this subject occurs within the premises of residencies, not without the constraints of individual interests as well as the organizations that support them. While varying degrees of subjectivities stimulates all discourses, TAKE identified the need for a platform where the phenomenon can be discussed on a relatively neutral territory. This issue hopes to fill that role, discussing this proliferation of residencies over the last decade as a practice and as a format, adding to current debate and dialogue with a series of critical and personal reflections and provocations, while bringing together some of the existing resources and references.
