IN PROCESS - Diversity
The word diversity is in fashion and sometimes it becomes a token and mere box checking rather than offering an actual alternative to structural suppression. With this Open Call, HAUT and Warehouse9 invite artists to examine the term diversity in a queer context. What is it? And what do we want it to be – especially in relation to organization, identity, communities, and the aesthetic expression?
Through "IN PROCESS – Diversity", HAUT and Warehouse9 wish to support alternatives to the existing structures and hierarchies from a norm-critical perspective. We are interested in aesthetic revolution, continuous insisting and embeddedness.
"IN PROCESS – Diversity" is for artists and choreographers who are in the initial stages of developing an artistic project, an artistic idea, or a collaboration in need of a Black Box and professional feedback.

The curated artists are financially responsible for international travel expenses and accommodation themselves. The residency is NOT an opportunity to finish a production. Applications are accepted in Danish or English.
HAUT follows the authorities’ advice concerning the current COVID-19 situation and will continuously update everyone involved, should restrictions influence the residency.
CURATION AND THE ORGANISATIONS
"IN PROCESS – Diversity" is curated by Jørgen Callesen and Emma Møller - the curators of Warehouse9 - in collaboration with Naja Lee Jensen, the artistic director of HAUT.
Warehouse9 (est. 2007) is a queer-led arts organization for radical and innovative arts practices and ideas by artists, art workers and activists working with matters related to identity politics, sexual expressions and body representations. We support and make space for queer art through a year-round arts programme and community programme, both dedicated to the local and international LGBTQI+ community. Warehouse9 also curates and produces the annual international performance festival IPAF. In 2020 we made the decision to depart our building in Kødbyen after 14 years. Warehouse9 currently operates from a project office in Nørrebro with our programmes unfolding across the city and Copenhagen.
HAUT is a performing arts organisation supporting experiments and performative projects in development. Through Open Calls, HAUT facilitates IN PROCESS residencies for independent performing artists and choreographers. IN PROCESS is for artistic development and immersion. IN PROCESS culminates in an encounter between art, artists, and audience where dialogue, not judgment, is at the heart of the conversation.

"IN PROCESS - Diversity" is supported by The Danish Arts Foundation and the Municipality of Copenhagen.
