Transart is particularly keen on encouraging proposals that relate to its research clusters: Memory, Forgetting, Trauma and the Archive; Language/Image; Art and Social Technologies; International Diaspora and Post-Colonialism; Role of Art in Peace, Meditation, Performance Activism; Land and Sea; Liminality, Space/Place, Temporary Architecture; and Foreignness, Otherness and the Uncanny.

Transart Institute is an international program. Summer residencies take place in cooperation with arts organizations in Europe. Winter residencies take place in New York at various arts initiatives and galleries.

Transart Institute
As the Unschool Art School, Transart grew out of a desire to go beyond established institutional education where pre-formed and pre-formatted knowledge is passed on to all students in the same way. Transart works the other way around: a plethora of models and diverse input in a multi-perspective environment form a truly student-centered program.

Applications will be accepted until November 1, 2012 for entering the program at the Transart Winter Residency in New York in December 2012.
