CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Winter 2014 Residency

Deadline for submissions: 13 December 2013, 5pm
Production residency: 20 January – 2 March 2013
Public presentation: 6 – 9 March 2013

Eastern Bloc’ media lab is a space for experimenting, learning, theorizing and creating – a place to further develop systems-based, networked, generative and hybrid practices through an artist-led discourse. The lab is a site of convergence for artists (both emerging and established), professionals, students, technicians, theorists and curators – encouraged to work side by side, supporting one another conceptually as well as technically.

Eastern Bloc’s residency program, with its three residencies per year (Fall, Winter, Spring), is a chance for artists and audiences to critically engage in the artistic process, with a focus on DIY and open source culture as well as and the political discourse surrounding contemporary digital culture, and a special consideration for pedagogy and technological democratization.

For the upcoming Winter residency, artists (or artist collectives) are asked to submit a project in one or more of the following disciplines: Net art, interactive installation/performance, bio art, audio/video installation, A/V performance, sound performance, public intervention.

Please include in the project description how the proposed project responds to the following criteria (the artistic merit of your application will be judged based on these criteria):

The selected artist or artist collective will benefit from a 6 week production residency in the Eastern Bloc lab (20 January – 2 March 2014), followed by 4 days to present the completed work or work-in-progress in one of the centre’s gallery spaces (6 – 9 March 2014).
