Neuroscientists discovered years ago that the process of recalling a memory activates the same processes as the act of creating a memory. Every time we remember something we are also actively recreating it. Traces of Things explores what happens when history is remembered and re-remembered by passing through moments of history through an artificial intelligence model trained on material from public and private Maltese archives.
As part of our ART+FEMINISM edit-a-thon we are presenting an installation of the work HAUS 209 by Bettina Hutschek. HAUS 209 tells the story of a woman who is used in a dystopian experiment of travelling to the “world beyond”. The woman is a prisoner in a clinic in a crisis-torn country. Scientists research the possibility of travelling to the “other world” with the help of radioactive capsules.

Through a collaboration between Blitz, Valletta, and Culture Zone Wrocław, an exciting artist residency exchange is about to take place. Following an open call for applications in both countries, we are pleased to announce Blitz will be sending Malta-based artist Letta Shtohryn to the AIR Wro residency in April. In exchange, Natalia Pośnik will travel to Malta for the Blitz Residency Programme, which is supported by the Valletta 2018 Foundation and is part of the European Capital of Culture programme.
Announcing the incoming artists for the 2018 Blitz Residency Programme. This year’s international open call for applications attracted a record 200 applications. Our star selection panel has made its decision and we are thrilled to announce the four successful applicants.
Themes of repetition, ritual, truth and collective action were on the agenda for Blitz in 2017 through a programme of exhibitions, workshops, and public exchange. Identity and data also emerged as a concern for both Maltese and visiting artists, resulting in a rigorous examination of how we see ourselves and others culturally and historically, from multiple perspectives.
Transformer is a multifaceted, two-year project that builds relationships between the Maltese artistic context and international cultural networks through a series of border-crossing curatorial and artistic exchanges. The project includes curatorial research, artist residencies, public talks, workshops, a website and a multi-site exhibition in spaces across Malta during the European Capital of Culture 2018.
Blitz welcomes all enquiries for venue hire, for all types of events, including private events, workshops, conferences and seminars, and can provide AV equipment and catering.
