Introducing new disciplines

This panel aimed to discuss various strategies for developing artistic residencies in context as they adjust to the contemporary conditions of art and culture. Interdisciplinarity became a way to manage with the artists wide spectrum of interests in diverse media and science. From another side, the development of new media technology impels creating residencies which provide artists with professionally equipped studios. The presentations questioned different approaches to residency models and perspectives of introducing new disciplines. What are the arguments towards specialising in narrow disciplines? Which model provides artists with appropriate work conditions? Introducing new disciplines-in-residence also means design, curating, architecture, humanities. What are requirements for such programmes? How does this broad approach reflect the institutional setting?
