Artists have until May 10, 2021 to apply with concepts for projects to be completed in 2022 at TU Dresden in the Schaufler Lab@TU Dresden. Projects should focus on the interface between art and science, explicitly artistic intelligence and its implications for society and the culture of objects. The selection of the artist is made by the the Residency´s selection committee. By accepting an artistic proposal, they invite the chosen artist to develop and realize the project in cooperation with scientists and scholars from TUD. Lectures, talks and workshops within the framework of the Schaufler Lab@TU Dresden as well as a guest seminar at the Academy of Fine Arts Dresden are part of the residency. Applicants have completed relevant international artistic projects, appeared in established international exhibitions and have a clear concept of their own artistic approach as well as an interest in TUD as an academic institution and its cultural, political and social context. They should take up residency in Dresden for the 6 months period.
