Residencies Woning Van Wassenhove

Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens organises residencies in the iconic Woning Van Wassenhove, a landmark modernist building designed by the Flemish architect Juliaan Lampens in Sint-Martens-Latem, near Ghent, Belgium.

The residencies allow a Europe-based candidate of any nationality to stay in the Woning Van Wassenhove for up to 4 consecutive weeks . Since the Woning is a single person heritage house, the emphasis is primarily on reflection and research, although production that respects the integrity of the house is possible.

The residency programme at the Woning Van Wassenhove is a partnership between Stichting Mevrouw Jules Dhondt-Dhaenens and the Lampens Estate.


The residency provides a practitioner in any artistic visual field the time and space to reflect on and further their practice in the Woning Van Wassenhove. The resident will benefit from the support, communication and institutional network of Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens. In addition, the resident will, in consultation with Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, organise a public moment — talk, performance, publication, broadcast, presentation... — following the residency. The residency covers travel costs, a per diem and a production budget for the presentation moment.

Francesca Hawker selected for the Writing Residency 2024

The 2024 residency at the Woning Van Wassenhove allows an artist to further their writing practice. The writer in residence is granted full use of the Woning Van Wassenhove, located in a quiet residential area in the vicinity of Ghent, for four consecutive weeks. The resident further receives travel and production stipends, as well as a per diem. The resident benefits from MDD and MORPHO’s full communication and MDD’s institutional support. As an outcome of the residency, MDD and/or MORPHO assists the resident to organise a public moment, such as a talk, performance, publication, broadcast or presentation in the year following the residency.

From more than 250 applications, the jury selected Francesca Hawker for the upcoming Writing Residency at Woning Van Wassenhove in January 2024.

The Jury “was impressed by the candidate’s witty and surprising writing and project proposal, and how writing is embedded withinher practice. Without directly addressing the context of the Woning, it does show an astute awareness of it.”
