The program "Artist in residence" was opened at Fabrika in 2008 and is aimed at foreign artists. Due to the unusual territory, program residents get the opportunity not only to get acquainted with the participants of the local art scene, but also to present an exhibition project in one of the Fabrika's spaces as well as present their research.
The industrial character of the place often influences the choice of program by residents: more and more applications are submitted by artists working with installation, print graphics, sculpture, performance and contemporary dance.
One of the main Fabrika's features is the possibility for different and unusual collaborations. Residents' neighbours are – printing workshops ("Piranesi Lab"), an animation studio ("Animation Workshop"), a film studio and many others.
During its existence, the residence has managed to cooperate with the Swiss Council for Culture Pro Helvetia, the Austrian Cultural Forum, the French Institute in Moscow, the Brazilian Cultural Center, the Goethe Institute and others.
