Artists across all countries and creative disciplines are invited to submit a project proposal for a research-led residency at CERN in Geneva and in various laboratories and research centres in Barcelona, while being hosted at the Hangar Centre for Art Research and Production.
Artists interested in applying to the Collide programme are invited to submit a project proposal that combines research and production. The scope of this proposal will include a research period at CERN and a second developmental phase in Barcelona, where the artists will have the opportunity to expand their research through Barcelona’s rich scientific and cultural network, as well as to engage with a wide range of communities.
The artist will spend two months at CERN, followed by a one-month stay in Barcelona (not necessarily consecutively). The exact timing of the residency will be defined after the announcement in conversation with the artist. It may occur after May 2022. If an artistic collective is the recipient of the residency award, a maximum of two members will be invited to stay simultaneously as residents. The budget will remain the same, with the possibility of splitting the grant between the members.
The award includes the following support and conditions:
- 15,000 Swiss Francs (~14,000 EUR) as a research and artistic production award.
- Personal allowance for two months at CERN in Geneva and one month in Barcelona.
- Travel and accommodation costs within a fixed budget for the three months of the artistic residency at CERN and in Barcelona.
