Ars Electronica - European Southern Observatory | residency call
Call for digital artists, innovative concepts and ideas in the field of art, science and technology to apply for a residency at the European Southern Observatory (ESO), in partnership with Ars Electronica in Austria.
After a successful first cycle of the art&science @ ESO – Residency Award, the partnership continues and Ars Electronica together with the European Southern Observatory (ESO) launches the second open call for the Residency program.
The residency will again be part of the „European Digital Art and Science Network“ initiated by Ars Electronica and seven cultural partners throughout Europe (Center for the promotion of science, RS – DIG Gallery, SK – Zaragoza City of Knowledge Foundation, ES – Kapelica Gallery / Kersnikova, SI – GV Art, UK – Laboral, ES – Science Gallery, IE) with the support of the Creative Europe Program of the EU.
Artists from any country are invited to apply for a residency at the ESO in Chile. This call is open for digital artists, innovative concepts and ideas in the field of art, science and technology.
The Residency is divided in two parts – with an initial 2-6 weeks at ESO, where the winning artist will have a specially dedicated science mentor to inspire him/her and his/her work. After a first introduction and coming together at the ESO offices in Santiago, Chile the dedicated artist will be able to choose her/his preferred residency place which can be ALMA, La Silla, Paranal or APEX. “The European Southern Observatory is the main organization in the world for ground-based astronomy.
The second part will be a month with the Ars Electronica Futurelab team and mentor at Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria with whom the winner will develop and make new work inspired by the ESO residency. The Ars Electronica Futurelab focuses on the future of the nexus of art, technology and society.
