Center for International Research and Collaborative Art, Circa 106 is the current form of the space in Bismarckstraße 106. The space is located in the city of Bremen, Germany and since 2017 it has been run by different student groups from the University of the Arts (Hochschule für Künste Bremen). The organisational team consists of Vicc Repasi and Maria Arzt since spring 2022. Previously run by Aria Farajnezhad & Victor Artiga Rodriguez from January 2020 to summer of 2022 and Suyeon Kim from Fall 2020 to Spring 2021. The focus of the space is to open a discourse of inclusivity for cultural practitioners from all backgrounds, to share ideas and disciplines around a diverse set of interests. The space initiates an open and welcoming platform for everyone to feel actively heard.

Throughout the year there will be a series of open calls which address a number of subjects by situating the space within the city. Circa 106 will also be open to proposals for workshops, lectures, film screenings or other events that contribute to the community.

The collaborative aspect of the space is reflected as well within the program Version Room, that will take place on a monthly basis where The Dynamic Archive will exhibit its components and versions. In line with the context of Circa 106, The Dynamic Archive sets out to discuss, probe, and develop the questions of collaborative work and sharing.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, our website inadvertently became a crucial component of Circa 106. We've explored online exhibitions, interactive experiences and other forms of online collaboration. Even our physical exhibition and residencies are all uniquely documented in an experimental and participatory design process close with those involved. The development, management and design of the site has been a work of Pablo Somonte Ruano.
