Frans Masereel Centrum, one of Europe's biggest print art centres, invites artists, writers and researchers to apply for its 2020 residency opportunities. Residency periods take place between January 6 and September 11, 2020 and last 6 weeks (general and research residency) or 4 weeks (essay residency).



- 5 analogue ateliers, 1 digital.
- Workshops and guidance customised to your individual project.
- Full-time assistance.
- 9 individual houses with all necessary provisions.
- Studio visits by external curators, galerists and other art professionals.
- Stimulating in-house exhibitions.
- Isolated and calm atmosphere amidst Flanders' woodlands.


Frans Masereel Centrum, which has recently been expanded, is a print laboratory and platform. Operating from amidst the scenic Flemish countryside, it not only propels the graphic and visual arts towards refreshing ideas and interpretations, but also lays the foundations for international artist communities and networks.

From intaglio to screenprints, from wood carvings to digital stencils and lasercuts: the recently renovated and greatly expanded Frans Masereel Centrum ateliers can inspire and accommodate any visual artist – photogravure buffs and risograph novices alike. FMC's atelier experts will gladly assist you with workshops, guidance, network and feedback moments with external art professionals, all customised to your artistic project.

Frans Masereel Centrum is also a knowledge hub and exhibition space with international allure. It offers writers, critics and researchers the necessary stimuli and calm atmosphere to delve into, for instance, the links between the graphic arts and other art forms, whether by leisurely conversations with other artists-in-residence or by making use of FMC’s sizeable library.

Application deadline: June 2, 2019

Until May 30th art universities are welcome to apply for a residency as well. FMC offers them one or two week stays or advanced ten-day masterclasses about the future of print (art).

Frans Masereel Centrum is part of and funded wholly by the Flemish government. Therefore, residents or schools are only required to pay a tiny fraction – mentioned on its website – of the actual costs of a residency.
