Goethe-Institut: Studio Quantum Residencies

Studio Quantum open call 2024.

Studio Quantum is an international events and artist-in-residence programme from the Goethe-Institut, exploring emerging quantum technologies through the lens of art. Studio Quantum is exploring important cultural, ethical and ecological questions around the impact of quantum technologies. The project consists of three key strands: residencies, events, and a project showcase.

The programme and accompanying event series will explore the impact of quantum computing on sustainability and climate change, the relationship between quantum technologies and artificial intelligence, as well as data security and data encryption.

The Studio Quantum residences in 2024 are open to artists based in the following project locations: Germany, Ireland, Mexico, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Nigeria, India (States of Karnataka and Kerala), and South Africa. One artist will be selected to represent each location. During the residencies, artists will be invited to travel to a different location and incorporate quantum technologies into the subject matter of their work and/or create work using quantum technologies, accessed via the cloud. Artists are also invited to explore new techniques and methods of artistic production enabled by quantum technologies.

Participating artists will be connected with local experts in both the cultural and technology sectors as well as a global network via an eight-week tutorial. All artists-in-residence will be invited to participate in public events in each location and present work and/or findings at a project showcase in Germany in 2024.

All residencies will be two months in length.  Applicants must be willing to travel for a minimum of 4-8 weeks as part of this programme.  Each location will provide a unique network of project partners.

A production budget of up to 3000 EUR, travel costs (amount allocated dependent on distance travelled), accommodation, and an honorarium will be provided for all Studio Quantum artists-in-residence.

Full virtual participation in the residency is not possible. However, artists interested in exploring hybrid models (e.g. 50% in-person and 50% online) should contact the Studio Quantum project team.
