Welcome to the residents of the first session of 2022

Like every year, WIELS welcomes a new round of Belgian and international artists in residence for a period of 3 to 6 months. The opportunity for each of them to participate in a programme oriented on practice, critical reflection, dialogue with peers and contacts with audiences.
