Akademie Schloss Solitude / Violet Nantume > Call for Web Residencies, ‘Muntu Maxims’
Akademie Schloss Solitude and curator Violet Nantume invite artists, collectives, experts, and activists from all disciplines to dedicate themselves to an experimental publishing practice through a web residency. With this call, they intend to bring together different areas of spirituality from cultures all over the world, and to highlight selected examples online. The project seeks to reflect on the socio-psychological position with regard to facts or states of affairs that indicate a dependence on other dynamisms in things, people, and the supernatural.
Submissions are accepted in text, performance, documentary video and fiction, 3D objects, net sculptures and installations, web archives, apps, and any other experimental mediums. Selected projects should be carried out in open-source formats that are well-documented, shareable, and consider the accessibility of users, who may range in age, race, gender, economic class, and ability.
For each call, the curator selects four project proposals, whose creators are rewarded with a four-week residency (starting 1 December 2020) and 750 Euro. All selected web residents are nominated for the production prize HASH by Solitude & ZKM which will be awarded in 2022.
Deadline: 15 October 2020
