With pleasure and excitement, Hotel Maria Kapel (HMK) invites proposals from all kinds of artistic practitioners to develop a project at Hotel Maria Kapel (HMK) in 2022. This open call does not invite practitioners to respond to a theme, rather we invite you to raise and conceptualise your questions and urgencies in the form of a project proposal.

HMK understands a residency as a medium for artistic practice. We encourage searching for forms of presentation other than exhibitions, including outcomes such as performance, lectures, publications, dinners, workshops, and conversations. A residency at HMK always entails a public presentation developed by the artist in residence.

We encourage artistic experimentation, meaning that HMK aims to support projects that allow initiation and testing of the resident’s idea and practice. We value proposals that can lead to unexpected outcomes and respond to a rapidly changing world. We want to support projects that engage with process as much as with the presentation of outcomes. We emphasise and encourage direct collaboration between the resident and HMK’s team and aim for the institution’s programming to adapt to and follow the resident’s practice, ideas, and methods, rather than the other way around.

This open call invites beginning* and returning** artistic practitioners living and working in The Netherlands to send in their proposals. We welcome practices of all kinds, including collectives.

* Artistic practitioner within four years of graduation.
** Artistic practitioner returning to their practice after a break due to e.g. (side) jobs, parenthood, health reasons, (informal) caregiving, doubt, loss, etc.

We are calling for proposals for two types of residencies, three residencies for the duration of six weeks, with accommodation, and up to two residencies for the duration of five months, without accommodation. The five-month residency unfolds outside of HMK and in the locality of Hoorn or the area of West-Friesland.
