For Akademie Schloss Solitude’s Call for Web Residencies No. 14, artist and musician Johanna Hedva has been invited as curator. Moving away from all-encompassing dystopian future scenarios, ‘Post-Doom’ explores how the perception of a lost present is inscribed in and reproduced in our everyday experiential spaces. As a seductive counterpart to this seemingly hopeless approaching terminal state (or standstill), Hedva calls for us to rethink beginnings, new multiple entry points, and experiences that reveal the longing for a whole, unmediated potential of our present and future.
For each call, the curator selects four project proposals, whose creators are rewarded with a four-week residency and 750 euros. All selected Web Residents are nominated for the production prize HASH by Solitude which will be awarded in 2022.
Submissions are accepted in the form of text, performance, 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 its users, who may range in age, race, gender, economic class, and ability.
