During nine days, Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium focuses on print and movement. Together with (film) researcher and curator Edwin Carels, the platform for artist books PrintRoom, award-winning animator Wouter Bongaerts and artist Bart Stolle we will investigate the boundaries between print, animation (film), and visual arts.

In May 2015 the results of the masterclass will be shown in Cinema Zuid in Antwerp, Belgium.

General conditions
The focus is on creation and experimentation in the workshop. You will get to work with old and new, manual and digital techniques. Technical experience with the printing techniques is not necessary.

450 Euro (nine days full time). This includes accommodations, lunch, and use of workshop materials. You will share a little house (kitchen, living room and bathroom) with one other participant. You dispose of a private bedroom.

Artists, illustrators, animators (maximum age of 35) send a pdf portfolio with ten images of recent work, a short cv and a short description of the relationship with the animated image to [email protected] before March 4.

Frans Masereel Centrum
Frans Masereel Centrum (1972) is part of the Flemish government, offering residencies and a working space to graphic designers, artists and critics who want to work with old or new printing techniques, manual or digital, or who want to investigate the relationship of graphic techniques with other visual arts. Check out our facilities here. FMC anno 2015 is a graphical laboratory in which the possibilities of graphical applications are being researched, widened and reformulated. Besides residencies, FMC organizes print projects such as exhibitions and the annual Print Art Fair, and supports artist publications.
