To date, HB has nurtured the growth of over 130 international emerging and established artists, and has touched thousands who have visited the HB projects in various cities.
HomeBase Project Residency Program
The HB project residency program@ is an experimental educational setting which consists several key components, relating to art, community building, hosting, critical spatial interventions, creative dissent and soft urbanism (manual being developed) which are the foundation of all hosting models. Broken down into chronological stages HB includes the following:
HB Artists / Site Specific Art Works
HB Artists have been selected to participate in the project through the nomination of the HB Curatorial committee, featuring a diverse group of talented artists from different cultural background, different mediums and different generations. A range of site-specific and social engaged art works have evolved in-situ in the rooms of HomeBase, applying an experimental, ephimeral, relational, critical spatial approach and shared exploration of home, bridging art and everyday living. In addition to the individual works, numerous communal art projects have been created by HB (Ignatz Bier), and the project in total is seen as an immersive work of art.
HB Hosting Models
While traveling to new continents and cities there has been a shift in what the meaning of home means in each culture and in each setting, and what are the modes, and available possibilities of urban hosting. This has led us to develop various HB hosting models in a flexible manner which fit to the setting and the given circumstance.
HomeBase research on home is an on-going process. Anat Litwin, founder of HB Project has brought this research to new frontiers, reflecting not only on HB but on the field of Artistic Hosting, via a curatorial research fellowship from the Andy Warhol Foundation in 2013 which enabled her to embark on the Roundtable Residency Research (RRR), which took place together with experts from different fields of knowledge in four international urban settings (New York, Tokyo, East Jerusalem, West Jerusalem). Currently Litwin is pursuing a PhD in the Department of Urban and Town planning at the Technion Institute, her research focuses on the Impact of Artistic Hosting on the City, with HB Project as a key case study.
HomeBase Project was founded by Artist, curator and researcher Anat Litwin in 2006 has evolved in collaboration with fierce team members, artists and cultural leaders who have devoted immense talent, time and passion towards the co-creation, facilitation and realisation of the project. Team members work has stemmed from the belief in the artistic vision, social urgency and meaningful HomeBase living experience. A list of HB team members from past years is featured with gratitude and sincere appreciation, by city.
