The European Biennial Network (EBN) is an active collaborative association in contemporary art. EBN aims to promote interaction and collaboration between contemporary art Biennials in Europe. It aims to utilize the knowledge, experience and wealth of information accumulated by organizers of large-scale periodic art events, in order to support the communication and mobility of artists and art professionals.
Biennials offer a great way to present art and interconnect global trends with local experience. So with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union, the European Biennial Network has established a biennial artist exchange and residency program.
This comprehensive art residency program consists of a 2-year cycle of workshops, residency and traineeship programs, research visits, and networking events. These activities are designed to reflect the diversity of different approaches to contemporary art, and to create opportunities for research, exchange of ideas, and creative partnerships.
