The aim of IAC is to create a strong interdisciplinary environment for artistic research and experimentation. With 1400 m2 of space IAC offers good facilities for concerts, exhibitions, screenings, talks, performance, dance and theatre, but at the same time it includes smaller and more isolated spaces for conferences, master classes, lectures, workshops, research, sound and video editing as well as two artist studios.
We offer facilities, equipment, and technical as well as curatorial support to all approved applicants, but no additional production budget or artist fee. It is up the applicants to ensure that a full budget is secured elsewhere.
We encourage all professional artists, art professionals, researchers and institutions that work with research based, experimental and interdisciplinary art to use and collaborate with IAC.
Realizing a project at IAC gives you the possibility to be part of a unique interdisciplinary environment and network of artists, researchers, musicians, producers, composers, directors, actors, writers and curators.
There are no deadlines. We look at applications continuously and respond approximately every second month, except over the summer.
Once you get a project approved you automatically become a member of IAC, which gives you a number of privileges, such as short term booking of our studios.
Our main criteria are high artistic quality and the urge to experiment, fail and investigate and break new ground within the fields of music, performing arts and visual arts – and in some cases related artistic expression such as literature, dance and film. We prioritize also interdisciplinary and research based art, but is open to any experimental approach that can contribute with new ideas to the development of performing arts, music and visual art. At last we ask for a motivation why the project is relevant to do at IAC, and not somewhere else. So we prioritize project that integrate a reflection around the use of IACs specific facilities and equipment, as well as connecting to the profile of the institution.
