Open Call EMARE Residency
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.
IMPAKT is happy to announce that through EMARE (European Media Artists in Residence Exchange), you can now apply for a residency at IMPAKT or one of our European partner organisations (list below).
The European Media Art Platform will offer EMARE 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. The upcoming call covers residency stays in 2020 and in 2021 at eleven renowned European media art organisations.
Deadline for Applications: 2 December 2019, 12:00 CET.
European artists can apply with a project proposal for a residency at one of the following institutions:
• Ars Electronica Center, Linz, Austria
• Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens, Greece

The residencies are for two months in one of two time frames, either from March to August 2020 or from January to May 2021. Applicants can choose one of the two options or indicate that they are available for both. EMARE includes a grant of 3.000 €, a project budget of 4.000 €, free accommodation, travel expenses up to 500 €, free access to technical facilities and media labs of the host institution, consultation by production and market experts and a professional presentation as well as the option to participate in exhibition tours at our members festivals in 2020-2021.
Applications should be submitted online and must include a CV, (audio)-visual documentation of previous work and a preliminary plan or sketch of the proposed project to be developed within the EMARE programme.
