Transdisciplinary Experimental Slovenian Art (TESLA) Award 2018 (Grant of €4,000)

Deadline: June 30, 2018

Applications are invited for the Transdisciplinary Experimental Slovenian Art (TESLA) Award 2018. The TESLA Award is a new competition focusing on new and progressive art forms in the field of transdisciplinary or intermedia art. Its mission is to provide optimal conditions for selected artists to research, produce and present an entirely new artwork under the mentorship of MoTA – Museum of Transitory Art and each year’s partners.

The aim of the award is to improve the conditions of artistic production in the field of transdisciplinary / intermedia art, in response to the growing interest in research-based practices in Slovenia and broader Eastern European region. This year TESLA partners with Artbat Fest in Almaty, Kazakhstan, and Bellastock from Paris, to support two public space works to be installed in Almaty. TESLA 2018 is looking for innovative public space projects on the topic of Water Stream.


  • Winning proposals will be awarded with a €4,000 production grant.


  • Open to individuals or groups working across any artforms and/or technologies;
  • Proposals for new works are especially welcome. Yet, organisers will be happy to help in the extension of existing projects if their contribution will be key to develop them towards a new direction or critically enhance them so they will achieve a new dimension;
  • The awards are especially aiming to support creators from Slovenia, the Balkans, Russia and Central Asia.
