Research residencies

The university and the museum have often been deemed two distant institutions when not directly coming face to face. The Research Residencies in the Museo Reina Sofía look to integrate both institutions and work spaces by introducing research time in a museum setting as well as the relational capacity in the academic sphere.

Each residency calls on artists, theorists and researchers, both national and international, to analyse, imaginatively and critically, relevant aspects of contemporary culture through their projects. The Museo also fosters modes of experimental knowledge that must pervade education and exhibition programmes, together with the exploration of new ways of envisaging the institution.

Researchers form part of the Museo community during their stay, coming into contact with distinguished interlocutors made up of post-graduate and PhD students from the Study Centre. In a series of seminars, residents will provide students with tools and knowledge in order for them to develop their own projects.

The main lines of research are:

  • The social dimension of contemporary artistic practice.
  • New modes of cultural production and the dissemination of knowledge in the network.
  • A re-reading of international contemporary art history with an emphasis on Spain and Latin America.
  • Research focused on the content in the Museo’s Research Centre or that leads to the enrichment of the said content.

Development is continuous, and the process commences with the presentation of a seminar project orientated towards the community of researchers, from the universities and the Museo, and culminates in an open activity in which the public are involved in the results of the research. Moreover, the institution also makes the museum resources available, for instance the library, databases and consultancy and support from professionals working within the bounds of different departments.

The education programme is developed with the patronage of the Banco Santander Foundation.
