Arthur Cravan Foundation and Cosmic Things announces the Senseless Residency Program that provides a place for developing and working on projects deemed to be "senseless": beyond the common good sense, standards, norms and normalization of the time… of this time.
During the residency it will be possible to develop senseless projects / ideas / actions / timeouts that require space and time alternative to the usual rhythms of production / performance and use / consumption. A place where it is possible to implement a state of acceleration or deceleration.
The residencies are open to artists, researchers, scientists, philosophers, curators, critics, writers, directors, poets… There are no restrictions regarding nationality or age.
HOW AND HOW LONG

The residency period is maximum of 15 days. If necessary to the project, the residency period may be used as two or more separate stays.
