Schaufler Residency@TU Dresden for Exploring Art, Science and Artificial Intelligence (Germany)

24.03.2020 |

An artist in residence position is open, starting in 2021 and continuing for a six-month period, in the Office for Academic Heritage, a major division of Technische Universit├Ąt Dresden.

At Schaufler Lab @TU Dresden, researchers and artists engage in an exploration of the interactions among technology, art, science and entrepreneurship. The focus is primarily on technology as a resource, as a means of distribution and as an element of discourse. In the first of three planned funding periods (2019–2022), the Lab’s guiding theme is ‘Artificial Intelligence and Social Transformation’. The topic sets the stage for research, artistic activity and communication with the wider public regarding the relationship between technological developments and social and cultural change from the perspective of the humanities and social sciences.

The Lab would like to give committed, internationally active artists the unique opportunity to work in a collaborative community of researchers and students and to use the university’s resources for artistic and creative projects for a six-month period.

Artists have until May 10, 2020 to apply with concepts for projects to be completed in 2021 at TU Dresden in the Schaufler Lab @TU Dresden. Projects should focus on the interface between art and science/scholarship, explicitly artistic intelligence and its implications for society and the culture of objects.

Applicants will have completed relevant international artistic projects, have appeared in established international exhibitions, and have a clear concept of their own artistic approach as well as an interest in TU Dresden as an academic institution and its cultural, political and social context. Find all details online.
