The baroque castle located in Žďár nad Sázavou in the Czech Republic offers a one-week long interdisciplinary residency for artists, scientist, architects, writers, philosophers, thinkers… The residency provides the time and space for joint research in dialogue by sharing problems, questions, confronting other ways of thinking and searching for new modes of work’s development. This year we will search for and research in the Obscurity.


Date: 25th – 31st March 2019
Place: Chateau Žďár nad Sázavou
Topic: The obscurity as darkness, dimness, invisibility …

Moving in time as plants having a different pace and rhythm which we usually disregard. Moving in space of nets, nests, hollows, corners, tunnels, caves, cellars, undergrounds. Moving the body whose nail felt down because the tongue was growing under it. Wondering through the mirrored strip of landscape, transparent culture is failing again. Constant enlightenment blinds us. We are looking for obscurity. We occult our insomnia. In order to obscure the journey, we will meander in a labyrinth of circles within circles by spiralling the time.

SE.S.TA ensures for selected artists:

/ residential spaces including accommodation and meals
/ contribution to travel expenses up to 80 €/ person for foreign participants
/ at the end of the residence an opportunity of public presentation – moderated roundtable

Send your online application with

/ professional CV
/ an overview of previous activities and experience, or potentially internet links with a presentation of previous work
/ motivation letter

Application deadline is 20th Decembre 2018
