The research project Transforming Freedom invites an artist, writer or curator for a residency stay in Vienna in October 2010.
Our range of research in Digital Arts & Cultures can be visited at transformingfreedom.org.
Some of our current research in artistic practises is revolving around the question of how the historic, transcontinental and intermedial strategies of the Fluxus tradition are substituted, newly empowered or modified by techniques of online collaboration. In this context, research into the strategies of young media artists in a globalized and increasingly technically colonized online media environment are also projected.
The residency guest is expected to contribute to the research and event program of Transforming Freedom in Vienna with either an artwork or a lecture. A preliminary plan for this should be given in the residency application.
We offer accommodation in partnership with the AiR-program of the Museumsquartier Vienna (mqw.at), living expenses will also be covered. We also provide connections to the local art scene and aim at helping with facilitating the artistic production during the residency.
The residency duration is one month, yet the exact beginning and end date are still negotiable. More residencies under comparable conditions and research themes are planned for the first half of 2011.
