The Islanders - part 2, 2020
BIDUD is an experimental web residency that invites artists, curators, and thinkers to present an instantaneous work/project on the main page of our website. During Covid-19, when cultural institutions were closed, and individuals were held under isolation and quarantine, BIDUD aimed to be an alternative and unmediated space for artists to share their thoughts and creations.
