22-29, 2008

are delighted to invite up to 3 EESI students to participate in a week
long residency-like Migrating Reality congress in Berlin.

The second
Migrating Reality congress is organized in cooperation with Migrating
Art Academies, a two-year EU funded project of EESI - École

sharing. In this particular case, sharing knowledge, space and time.

Up to 10 students
from above mentioned art academies will reside in General Public
gallery in Berlin. Objects, ideas and documents produced during the
time will be exhibited at the end of Régime in the same
