Applications are now open for the second iteration of the transmediale residency programme, in cooperation with Chile’s Ministry of the Cultures, Arts and Heritage. The programme calls for research projects from Chilean or Chile-based artists and researchers working in the fields of art, science, new media and technology. The two-month residency will take place this August and September at transmediale studio in Berlin.
The transmediale x Chile residency is open to new or ongoing projects in all formats including film, sound, performances, artificial intelligence, text, 3D, APIs, research and games. This year’s programme specifically welcomes projects that question illogical, irrational and unusable politics and affect emerging from the undercurrent of foreboding that permeates digital platforms. From anxieties around AI development to global warming, news and media platforms have become a playground for entertainment and fear, delivering an increasingly foreboding interpretation of the world.
Successful applicants will present their projects in public presentations at transmediale studio during the residency. Each resident will be provided with a fee of €2,200 and is supported with travel and accommodation costs.
Focusing on more sustainable and long-term relationships with artists, as well as slowed down curatorial approaches, transmediale has built on its residency programme with a variety of partner institutions since 2020. Out of last year’s 14 transmediale residents, three artists were accepted as part of the Chilean Residency.
Residents for the 2023 programme will be selected by a jury comprising Nora O Murchú (artistic director of transmediale), Valentina Montero (curator and researcher) and 2022 transmediale resident, Nicole L’Huillier (transdisciplinary artist, researcher and musician).
Applications are accepted online via the submissions platform and should include a project proposal, timeline, image or video, as well as an outline of your proposed methodology.
Deadline: June 9, 2023; 23:59 CET
