Web Residencies by Solitude & ZKMDEADLINE:
Akademie Schloss Solitude and ZKM's web residencies encourage young talents of the international digital scene and artists from all disciplines dealing with web-based practices. For each call, the curator selects four project proposals whose creators receive a four-week residency and 750 USD.
Artists are invited to experiment with digital technologies and new art forms, and reflect on the topics set by the curators. Web residencies are carried out exclusively online, and the works are presented on schloss-post.com.
The current call for web residencies, curated by Dani Ploeger, focuses on close engagements with developments in »Violent Consumer Media« through artistic explorations of their methods, aesthetics, and broader cultural implications.
Project proposals for this call may include text, performance, documentary video and fiction, 3D objects, net sculptures and installations, web archives, apps, and any other experimental mediums. Selected projects should be carried out in open-source formats that are well-documented, shareable, and consider the accessibility of its users, who may range in age, race, gender, economic class, and ability.
For each call, the curator selects four project proposals, whose creators are rewarded with a four-week residency and 750 USD. All selected web residents are nominated for the production prize HASH by Solitude & ZKM which will be awarded in February 2020.
