About this program

Interrelational Art Practices

​Facing a world that is more and more focused on quick results, profit maximalisation and protocols, the interrelational approach of art is first of all an open-ended way of working, which focuses on processes, instead of products. It also focusses on relations under pressure; the relations between people, between people and nature, people and technology, economical production processes and ecologies etc.

In the iRAP programme, you will develop your own interrelational artistic practices and strategies in order to connect, to create involvement, and to find new possibilities for collaboration or participation. Interrelational art practices arise from different sources such as trauma-work, dance practices, political engagement, processing grief, cooking as comfort and resistance, fascination for materials and anger about climate change. Whether you are trained as a fashion designer, scenographer, film- or theater maker, painter or product designer, your practices are embedded in specific local contexts.
