CERN and Arts Electronica

After three successful years within the Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN Award, CERN and Ars Electronica decided to continue this fruitful cooperation and again launch an open call to win a fully funded residency for up to 2 months at CERN followed by a residency at the Ars Electronica Futurelab.

Deadline: 23 June 2015

The continuation of Collide@CERN will be realized within the European Digital Art and Science Network.

Within the Collide@CERN Ars Electronica Award artists from any country are invited to apply for a fully-funded residency for up to 2 months at CERN. The selected artist will be invited to spen an extra month at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, to focus on the future of the nexus of art, technology and society. The lab’s team is committed to cross-disciplinary research.

The organisers are looking for digital artists who will be truly inspired by CERN, showing their wish to engage with the ideas and/or technology of particle physics and with CERN as a place of scientific collaboration. You might be a choreographer, performer, visual artist, film maker or a composer – what you all have in common is that you use the digital as the means of making your work and/or the way of presenting it.

The winning artist will receive:

  • 15,000 Euros production budget incl. prize money
  • Rent, subsistence and travel, up to CHF 4,000
  • Insurance

The application must include a video (up to five minutes) introducing the applicant, and outline of the concept for collaboration, a draft production plan with budget and schedule, and an exemplary portfolio of work.
