X-OP - eXchange of art operators and producers is a gradually growing
network of artists, researchers, operators, producers and centers with the
aim to establish a European platform for creation of art and exchange.

interdisciplinary approach to art.

Residency-guest should propose a project connected to the eXchange of Art
Operators and Producers – X-OP project. It should be a theoretical study
