Might Shop (EITC Brussels residency program)
From 2011 until 2013 nadine had a residency venue in Schaarbeek, Brussels, called Shop. From end 2011 until the beginning of 2013 nadine organised a residency program in the framework of their EITC case study Co-Wastl. The program invited artists to research crafts and cultural exchange using the commercial set-up of a shop in a cultural diverse area of Brussels.

Might shop was a residency of the designers collective Überknackig that questioned the role of commercial and non-commercial spaces. The shop space in Schaarbeek served as a meeting space and room for exchange. Local artisan were invited to exchange their homemade craftwork with other people. Überknackig used the commercial set-up of a shop to trigger cultural exchange.
