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.


Several open calls are held to select a candidate with a specific profile within or partly outside the field of visual arts. After a first selection, a jury assesses a longlist to select a candidate.


  • Open call: from February 2023
  • Deadline application: March 2023
  • Public announcement: April 2023
  • Residency: maximum 4 weeks

Residents 2021

Bas van den Hurk & Jochem van Laarhoven

During their residency, Dutch artists Bas van den Hurk (°1965) and Jochem van Laarhoven (°1988) produced a filmthat involved the theatre director Suze Milius, among other cast members, and features textile props produced by the artists at the Frans Masereel Centrum.

Funding for the residency was generously provided by Makersfonds Tilburg.

Karina Beumer – FABA Artist Residency

Karina Beumer (°1988) holds an interactive artistic practice which stays alive by being in conversation with — or being captivated by — something or someone else. This results in videos, installations and publications that emerge from drawings of observations and unannounced performances. Beumer searches for an absurd and surreal relationship between the inside of the head (thoughts, miscommunication) and the physical world (language, networks). In a dream-like universe she connects banal issues with personal fantasies using strategies of existing structures such as pop songs, blockbusters and live action role playing.

Funding for the FABA Artist Residency was generously provided by the FABA Foundation.

Meta Drčar – Art & Architecture Residency

Meta Drčar (°1985) is a Slovenian artist, currently based in Paris. She creates site-specific performative sculptures that activate architectural settings to promote the viewer’s spatial engagement. Throughout her research, she has been analysing how body movement responds to the various factors of the built environment and, furthermore, challenge the ways in which we observe and experience a given architectural situation.

The Art & Architecture Residency was made possible through the generosity of Axel Vervoordt Gallery, Puilaetco and Eeckman Art & Insurance.
