STUDIOTOPIA > Open Call for Scientists to Work with Visual Artists

STUDIOTOPIA is a creative journey addressing sustainable development across Europe through the converging views of art and science. The initiative aims to increase collaboration between cultural and research institutions, academia, innovation centres, creatives and European citizens.

Over the course of almost two years, STUDIOTOPIA will offer 13 artists and 13 scientists a unique opportunity to collaborate together. Taking place September 2020 – December 2021, the project’s residency programme aims to encourage scientists to exchange ideas, knowledge and methodologies with international visual artists while visiting their studios. Results, developed concepts, research material or artworks generated during STUDIOTOPIA residencies will be exhibited in partnering venues across Europe. The residency programme aims to create opportunities for artists and scientists to share their expertise with wide international audiences, curators, art specialists and researchers.

Successful candidates receive:

  • A €1000 fee.

  • Travel and subsistence costs to attend the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria.

  • Travel and subsistence costs within Europe to meet with your collaborative partner up to six times.

  • Support with research and production related costs in consultation with your host institution.

  • Support in disseminating scientific concepts, working models and methodologies across Europe to (young) audiences, policy makers and art professionals.

Applicants must be EU residents, but can come from any scientific discipline (natural sciences, biology, physics, mathematics, chemistry, engineering, medicine and health sciences, agriculture, social sciences...). Applicants must be willing to travel up to six times during the residency period, since residencies will take place in different European cities (depending on the location of artist’s studio).

Deadline (extended): 31 May 2020
