AIR Antwerpen is an international residence project for artists, based in the former lock‐keeper’s house on the Eilandje. AIR Antwerpen is more than just a host workplace for artists from abroad. It presents itself as a breeding ground for contemporary art, a place where art is generated and where artistic research is carried out. Each year it organises the OPEN AIR festival. For one day, an external interdisciplinary curator is given 'carte blanche' and determines every aspect of the programme for the day. At the request of AIR Antwerp, OHNO COOPERATION (Maarten Seghers & Jan Lauwers) invited 8 artists in residence. The artists chosen ‐ Michael Fliri, Pontogor, Rachel Lowther, Nicolas Field, Idan Hayosh, Mind Over Mirrors, Roberta Gigante and Fritz Welch. They work on the basis of mutual confrontation and total solitude in Antwerp from May to October 2011.
