Risk Change is a project exploring socio-political pressures conditioned by population mobility, change in the place of residence, migration, exile, etc, through interdisciplinary and intercultural approach. The main focus will be placed on the media and post-media art practices associating global social problems with art and science.
The project's goal includes realization of concrete results: art residences, new/inovative models, conferences, symposia, workshops, open laboratories, exhibitions, study visits, web platform, mobile phone application, new cultural networks, publications, etc.
The project is divided into several parts: project management, research, production, creating new audience and education, communication and dissemination, as well as project sustainability and utilization of its results in further research.
As partner-leader in the area of production, Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina will in large part be in charge of artistic value of the project, production of artwork, organization of various exhibitions, selection of artists included in residential programs, etc. The Museum will, for the duration of the project, organize 8 individual exhibitions (2 annually), 3 large group international exhibitions (1 annually), 8 round-table discussions, 3 symposia, 15 workshops, and host as well as provide a place for work for over 10 artists who will reside in Novi Sad through residential program, etc.
