Call for Web Residencies: Solitude and ZKM Web Residencies Program 2019

0 5,227

Solitude and ZKM Web Residencies ProgramThe call for application for the Web Residencies 2019 by Solitude and ZKM is now open. The web residencies program was initiated by Akademie Schloss Solitude in 2016 to support young talents from the international digital scene, and artists of all disciplines who deal with web-based practices.

Solitude and ZKM Web Residencies Program.

Artists are invited to experiment with digital technologies and new art forms, and reflect on the topic – Planetary Glitch.

This is a call for artists, designers, (bio)hackers, technologists, storytellers, writers, healers and shape-shifters to create new open source strategies for undoing the trap of the planetary shift.

Among these strategies may include kitchen recipes for eating the other, pleasure tutorials, witchcraft and alchemy, collective coping mechanisms, online networks of care, information emancipation, training exercises for becoming-with our mutations, biohacking protocols for freeing toxic substances from their molecular mystique, and digital tools for radical interconnectedness.
