Frans Masereel Center Residency in Belgium

Frans Masereel Centre (1972) is a place where national and international artists, researchers and graphic designers reside, meet and experiment. During the general residency program, the artist or graphic designer realizes a print project that matches his or her personal oeuvre. The residency lasts 4 to 6 weeks.

Frans Masereel Centre offers residencies and a working space to graphic designers, artists and critics who want to work with intaglio, relief printing, screen print or lithography, or who want to investigate the relationship of graphics with other visual arts. The focus is on creation and experimentation in the workshop. Frans Masereel Centre anno 2016 is a graphical laboratory in which the possibilities of graphical applications are being researched, widened and reformulated. It is a platform for the public, the artist and his work.

The center is located in the rural 'Anwerpse Kempen’. The architect, Lou Jansen, designed the main studio as an open and round structure, where one can work peacefully. The work studio is open from 8 am to 8 pm. Ivan Durt and Tom Dries, our technical staff member, give the necessary support and technical advice. As a resident you have your own studio with kitchen, dining and living room and two bedrooms at your disposal. We also offer one bike for each house. You’re free to bring your assistant.

Deadline for applications for a residency in 2017, January to October, is August 1st 2016. Use our online application form. End of September 2016 we announce the selection.

No prior knowledge of the graphic medium is required, but residents are expected to work on their own. Two staff members are available for technical advice or help.
