Research Program

Research Program

 

RedHero has created a long-term research program both for international and local artists. International artists are invited to come to Mongolia for a minimum period of 2 weeks and are encouraged to come back as many times as possible as they develop an in-depth research on Mongolian context and culture.

 

The founding vision of the program is multifaceted: to establish an artistic research program as a tool for interpretation, to provide an alternative representation of the contextual background, and to encourage new and dynamic cultural and creative actions within and around the territory. RedHero Research Program aims to create a meaningful and symbiotic interaction between the artist and the surrounding areas, a moment in which the artist comes to terms with the territory and vice versa.

 

So far, the artists invited have been: Antoni Muntadas (2016), Mark Dion (2017 – ongoing), Dana Sherwood (2017 – ongoing), Tuguldur Yondonjamts (2017 – ongoing) and Michael Beutler (2018 – ongoing).

Field Notes

 

Field Notes is a series of videos dedicated to artists’ experiences as they reflect upon the context they are exploring, usually in relationship with their own project’s methodological approach and area of interest. Field Notes is a travel diary, with notes, thoughts, reflections and considerations.

Project Methodology

 

 

Project Methodology is an ongoing series of public talks that RedHero proposes every year with artists part of the research program. Through a series of lectures, talks or interviews, Project Methodology explores how and why artists do what they do and how the shape their research. ‘Project Methodology’ means a system of procedures that may be derived to interpret or reflect upon different problems within the scope of a particular discipline, in this case contemporary art. The project is itself a working methodology which directs its attention to interdisciplinary processes, specially related to theory and practice and the city space as a focal point.

 

The first public talk of Project Methodology was with artist Antoni Muntadas; it was the first RedHero’s event, which happened on the 29th of July of 2018 at The Fine Art Museum of Zanabazar.
