Working during residency
By David Gumbs
The choice of Red Gate as partner residency is probably one of the best choices...These two months in Beijing were most productive and resulted in taking part of two exhibitions and a presentation at Bookworm followed by a small performance. Many contacts were made with curators from independent art spaces in the Hutongs.
By Fermín Ceballos
I came with curiosity, open to discover what Bethanien and Berlin had to offer and what I could give back. I was very tempted to take advantage of all the different facilities and work with everything (metal, wood, make videos, etc.), but obviously I had to make choices in order to be efficient.

My experience at the Residency
By Guillermo Rodríguez
During the last 3 months of 2015 I had the opportunity to focus on a period of artistic and theoretical research, in Basel, Switzerland. I am truly grateful to the Davidoff Art Initiative for their support, and for awarding me their first residency in this city. I could talk about the outcome and impact this period of research have had in my artistic practice, but instead I would like to focus on another aspect that made these past few months so special.
