The Hustinx residence is a project that aims to establish real collaborations between art institutes in Maastricht as a means to give an impulse to the cultural landscape of the city of Maastricht.
The Hustinx Residence is awarded to an artist who has already realised an impressive oeuvre and has established an international career. The artist functions as the cultural driving force behind the project. The realisation of the residency should provide something that is unique to Maastricht. The goal of the residency is mainly to develop a process between different partners in Maastricht, instead of providing a singular prize or subsidizing one production. This process approach is the new element, indispensible to the bond that can arise between the different parties, to better their cooperation and for the enjoyment of the content.
It should therefore be a process of cooperation that can only exist due to the Hustinx Residence and would otherwise not have been possible.
