We will be using the Curatron software system as our method to define the artists within the group of the residency. Curatron is an online software tool developed to involve artists directly in the curatorial selection process. Each artist applying for the residency can view the entire pool of applicants and select other applicants they would like to spend their residency with. Curatron then calculates the final group from every applicants selection.

Flaggfabrikken – Center of Contemporary Art is a non-profit organization run by artists in Bergen, Norway.
Flaggfabrikken was initiated in 2003 by ten former students from Bergen National Academy of the Arts. An old flag factory which they renovated with the ambition to create individual working spaces and to set up a local base of competence for contemporary art. Since then Flaggfabrikken has housed several Bergen based artists and international guests.
Flaggfabrikken has also generated several external projects such as Flaggfabrikken Presenterer, which was established in 2005 as a public one-night event for contemporary art projects that embraced a wide range of presentations such as video screenings, performances, site specific art works, art talk shows, debates, concerts, street art, slide shows, lectures and self presentations. This took place in a downtown cultural venue called Landmark within Bergen Kunsthall.
In 2006 an International Artist in Residence Program was carried out with kind support from the municipality of Bergen. This program has brought several international guest artists to live and work in Bergen for periods of one to three months. Today this program has been restructured into a one month group residency.
Flaggfabrikken’s total premises consists of eight to ten permanent working spaces, one guest studio and a digital workshop for advanced printing and scanning. We have eleven members in total, and the workshop is developing to become a professional alternative for external artists and photographers in Bergen.
Apart from being professional artists, Flaggfabrikken´s members are also active as curators, tutors, photographers and writers.
