A New Journal Is Coming

August has just started and brings good news with it.

The forthcoming Transnational Dialouges Journal 2016 will feature, amongst others, works by three artists that we deeply admire: Berna Reale, Dai Hua 代化 and Tobias Zielony. The Journal will be freely distributed in print and online.

Can you wait until the end of the month?!

Residência Nomádica Brasil

Entre os anos de 2015 e 2016 o programa Residência Nomádica foi ganhando forma dentro do Transnational Dialogues, e vem sendo realizado na Europa, Brasil e China.

As residências tornaram-se, neste sentido, um “espaço /transnacional temporário de cultura” aberto para a cidade, onde o trabalho de produção e pesquisa é acompanhado por um profundo envolvimento entre a comunidade local e abordagens colaborativas e de co-produção.
