Nomad (Thinking) Residency is an ongoing artistic residency program run by the swiss artist Martin Schick, popping up irregularly at rather unusual places for rather unusual kind-of-artists. Starting point was a 1-month residency exclusively for clowns on a camping site in 2017. The project aims to co-exist within most different contexts, each time reacting to the given situation, aiming to challenge the notion of art residency, discussing and stretching the idea of what a residency is and can be, as much as what an artist is and can be.
