The ESSCS is hosted each year by one of the eight partner institutions and accommodates 8 keynote speakers, including representatives from the five collaborating institutions, and up to 50 junior researchers from Europe and abroad. The primary target group for the summer school is candidates enrolled in a PhD-programme, but a number of seats will be reserved for post.doc.-candidates in order to enhance the continuity in research training beyond the PhD-level.

vilém flusser residency programme

Tags: , ,

The transmediale festival for digital arts and culture has also opened a new residency programme for artistic research, the Vilém Flusser Residency Programme. The programme will support projects and activities which are simultaneously conceptual and practice-based. It is geared towards the initiation of new research or to the further development of existing projects. It is not a production grant, and while a public presentation/event will be expected, there is no pressure to present finished works. Where applicable, the support of publications, exhibitions, interventions and other results of the residency may be negotiated on a project to project basis. Special priority will be given to young and/or emerging artist-researchers.
The organisers states that in the current times of the crisis of revolutionary movements, artistic research is not only a dialogue between theory and praxis, and that the work within in-between spaces and moments of transitions is necessary in order to make the complex structures of today’s networked culture comprehensible.
The residency will be from April 2012 on as a 2 month work-and research-residency in Berlin. The applicant selected by the jury will have the oppportunity to further develop the submitted project during the time of the residency. The program includes: travel costs to Berlin, accomodation costs in Berlin, a stipend of 1000 EUR per month and a studio / workspace in the Flusser Archive at the Universität der Künste (UDK) in Berlin.
Further details of the project presentation at the transmediale festival and Flusser Archive will be negotiated directly with the applicant. The submission deadline is August 31 and the full call can be found here.
