We're pleased to announce the second iteration of the transmediale residency programme in cooperation with the Ministry of the Cultures, Arts and Heritage of Chile and DIRAC - Division for Cultures, Arts, Heritage and Public Diplomacy Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile.
Applications are open now for research projects from Chilean or Chile based artists and researchers working in the fields of art, science, new media, and technology. The residency takes place for two months (August and September 2023) at transmediale studio in Berlin. The call is open to new or ongoing projects in all formats including text, 3D, film, sound, performances, artificial intelligence, API’s, research, or games.
From anxieties about AI development to the rapid shifts in atmospheric carbon and temperature, news and media increasingly deliver a foreboding interpretation of the world. Whether it’s the return of the past in the present or conspiracies nested within conspiracies, networks and platforms have become a playground for entertainment and fear. As unreliable narratives spread, and climate and social inequalities expand and endure, an atmosphere of doubt creeps in. As this undercurrent of foreboding permeates across digital platforms, the transmediale x Chile residency welcomes new or ongoing projects that question what kinds of illogical, irrational, and unusable politics and affect emerge?
The two month residency takes place at transmediale studio in Berlin in August and September 2023. Accepted candidates are required to use the residency in its full length during August and September, 2023. During the residency, the projects can be presented in public presentations at transmediale studio in Berlin. Each resident will be provided with a fee of €2,200 and is supported with travel and accommodation costs.
Residents will be selected by a joint jury of Nora O Murchú, artistic director of transmediale, Valentina Montero, curator and researcher, and Nicole L'Huillier, transmediale resident 2022 and transdisciplinary artist, researcher, and musician.
Applications are submitted online via the transmediale submission platform and should include the following:
- A project proposal
