Burning Issue Residency Programme - website
Walking out the studio and exploring the community and the city, artists regard artist-in-residence as a process to seek for the breakthrough in practice so as to response their researches in practicing. Artists can choose one residence and propose a “key issue” related to it. In the residency, artists manage to deal with the issue.
By the beginning of 2014, TCAC proposed the annual key programme “Burning Issue Residency Programme”. In comparison to traditional on-site and outcome-emphasized residency, this new form of residency mainly focuses on the cultural researchers and the contemporary artists with their long-term concerned issues as their proposed projects. Whether the proposed issue is important or not is to be the key factor for candidate’ selection; then, the chosen issue is going to be developed as a unique research-based-residence project. The core concept of “Burning Issue Residency Programme” is identifying the value of residency experience is based on the “process”, not the “product”. The process of residency could discover more ideas on their own issue or maybe cause some prominent influences, create more possible outcome of product, or maybe raise even more questions on the issues. Then, when the participants come back to where departure (Taiwan) after all, the research can be carried on and the proposed issues throughout their experience of residency can be further developed.
