Masterstudent Giulia Magro artist in residence in Berlin

Giulia Magro, student at the Master Institute of Visual Cultures in ‘s-Hertogenbosch will take up residency in Berlin this September.

The residency in Berlin, Dérive Berlin, is a residency awarded by the Belius Foundation Berlinarrow in collaboration with Caradt.

Giulia Magro

Giulia Magro has a Bachelor in Science in Architecture at Politecnico di Milano. She writes the following about her upcoming residence in Berlin:

“When it comes to sound and vision, I have always thought of Berlin as crazily disruptive. Indeed, I think it’s the city’s intrinsic contrasts and contradictions that make it so attractive for artist and makers: historically, its past division and recent reunification or, architecturally, its Bauhaus buildings and graffiti undergrounds, or, culturally, its silent mourning and loud music.

As well, I love defining “disruptive” also my videomaking practice. While it is formally based on the cinematic language, it aims to frame the “are-you-watching-closely” situations in my immediate surroundings. I am currently working on short looped videos and I am deepening the research on how to daze and amaze my viewers in a visually, soundly, timely, experimental way.

During my residency in Berlin, I am planning not only to expand my on-going anthology of disruptive looped videos, but also to record the silence, to shoot in the dark and to arrest the flow of time.”


Dérive Berlin is intended as a residency allowing the artist or designer to immerse her/himself in the creative urban space of the German capital in order to generate new impulses for their artistic/aesthetic work.

Research Group: Cultural and Creative Industries

The research group Cultural and Creative Industries investigates the role of artists and designers as creative innovators and drivers of social and economic change. Affiliated researchers analyse the cultural and creative industries from a critical point of view and examine the conditions under which timely forms of aesthetic expression and social connectedness can actually take place within the precarious reality of this field. What economic models are required by artists and designers to create a meaningful practice within the aesthetic, social, and economic intentions of the cultural and creative industries? What skills sets are required for those artists and designers who don’t just want to follow movements, but actually shape novel social and economic models of the future?
