European Media Artist in Residence Exchange Program 2020/2021 (Grant of €3,000)

Deadline: December 2, 2019

Does an AI dream of tulips? Can an intimate kiss be translated into neuro-feedback data? What would the ultimate species for the end of the world look like? These are some of the questions which artists are playfully exploring through new technologies – from digital media to bio art and robotics – within the framework of the European Media Artists Residency Exchange programme.

The European Media Art Platform (EMAP) is calling for applications for residencies in the years 2020 and 2021. The European Media Art Platform will offer EMARE (European Media Artist in Residence Exchange) residencies for artists working in the fields of digital media – in internet and computer-based arts, in sound or video art, in media-based performance, as well as in robotics or bio-art.
