What is HECTOLITRE?
HECTOLITRE is a place in creation, dedicated to artists and communities, willing to deepen their projects, experiment with transdisciplinarity or connect their practice to the neighborhood.
What is the Reactor?
It is the central space of HECTOLITRE and the former swingers club. An interior atrium, a two-story vertical landscape. The sum of various spatial functions over the time, culminating in rich decorations incorporated during the swingers club's era. There is an entrance for events, with a reception desk. Then directly on the ground floor, there is the bar, DJ cabin, a small stage (with a pole dance bar), toilets and a swimming pool (empty). On the first floor, there are three small empty rooms, open like balconies on the atrium. These two levels are associated in a single "reactor", dedicated to interdisciplinary projects and events (visual, performative and/or sound arts).
For who it is?
We invite international and local structures, communities and curators to propose their artistic and cultural projects (punctual and short-term occupation) with a bold, innovative and independent artistic input.
From when the venue is available for events?
From February to June 2019.
How to apply?
We open a call for projects with a deadline of January 31th, 2019 (expired). In order to answer the call, please fulfill the online form here.
What can you expect from Hectolitre?
The Reactor will be in your hands! The hectolitre team will help you with understanding the technical possibilities and limitations of the venue. We will introduce you to other projects or artist-in-residence, which are happening in parallel at Hectolitre. We will also communicate the project within our network and be happy to work together.
What do we ask in return?
An open, creative community, with a project rooted in sharing, passion, exchanging and dedication. An innovative and courageous statement on art, society, and technology. A social, creative or intellectual impulse, ready to grow together with Hectolitre.
