Moved, Mutated and Disturbed Identities has been set as this year's theme to challenge European and Asian artists to work on realities and identities in both China and Luxembourg.

In general, the representation of identities is complex. Only parts are visible, because presentable. Reading between the lines, looking behind the façade is made difficult. When represented, thus simplified, identities create fronts and barriers, disturbed ones may open up spaces for negotiation, change, infiltration, segmentation, transformation, alienation, discovery, re-appropriation …

Movement, mutation and disturbance of identities can happen at micro and macro scales. Individuals, groups, communities, citizens, cities, states etc. can be the subjects or objects concerned by these acts and affected to become constructed identities, changing identities, fake identities, multiple identities, lost identities, split identities, refuted identities, hidden identities, repressed identities etc.

During this international post master residency programme, the artists are invited to respond to the theme through local contexts, states and situations. Several lectures will be organised. The selected participants are expected to present their works, to engage in art-making and fieldwork, and to produce individual works for an exhibition in Luxembourg and one in Shanghai. They will also have to make a presentation at the Luxembourg Pavilion during the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai. Accommodation, daily fees and travel costs will be covered by the organisers.
