Open Call European ARTificial Intelligence Lab (Argentina and Austria)
Together with twelve prestigious art and cultural institutions, Ars Electronica is launching a new Europe-wide, three-year initiative: the European ARTificial Intelligence Lab.
Both stablished artists and up-and-coming talents will have the opportunity to spend several weeks at the Ars Electronica Futurelab and at the Muntref Centro de Arte y Ciencia (Museum of the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero, Art and Science Center) and Laboratorio de Neurociencia de la Universidad Torquato Ditella in Buenos Aires. The competition is aimed at artists who wish to develop new artistic approaches at the interface of neuroscience and artificial intelligence. The selected artist wins a residency (no prize money). In addition, an artist’s fee of € 3.000,-, accommodation and travel expenses for the residency will be covered.
The residency of the AILab is divided into two phases:
The artist first travels to Buenos Aires, Argentina. In Muntref Centro de Arte y Ciencia and Laboratorio de Neurociencia de la Universidad Torquato Ditella she or he will be accompanied by a scientific mentor for three to six weeks to gather inspiration for her or his artistic work in the field of AI and neurosciences.
In the second section we go to Linz, Austria, to Ars Electronica Futurelab. Here, too, a mentor will support the winning artist of the AILab Residency. At the Ars Electronica Festival the result will be presented to a broad public.
The projects that will be created in the various residencies will be presented at the Ars Electronica Festival 2019/2020 and at exhibitions in Muntref Centro de Arte y Ciencia. If possible, preparations will be made during the Artist-In-Residence Semester at Muntref Centro de Arte y Ciencia and Laboratorio de Neurociencia de la Universidad Torquato Ditella and at the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz.
Deadline (extended): 25 February 2019
