Artist-in-residence programmes are well-known means for artists and curators to refresh, reset or deepen artistic ideas. Residential art institutes can enrich their international collaboration, partly because residents often return to participate in an exhibition. Over the last two decades, the programmes consequently have grown enormously in popularity. Cultural networks as Trans Artists and Res Artis list some 1,500 international exchange opportunities on their websites.
