Technarte, TEA (Tenerife Espacio de las Artes) and ITER (Instituto Tecnológico y de Energías Renovables), in order to investigate the connections between Innovation, Art, Science and Technology in creative processes, decided to launch a programme of artistic residencies in scientific environments on the Island of Tenerife called Technarte Residency Tenerife. The goal of this programme is the creation of two artistic projects that integrate the fields of technology, science and innovation into their reflection, production and execution processes.
As part of the programme, two residencies will take place in the ITER Bioclimatic Houses on the Island of Tenerife, where ITER has world-class technological assets. This call will facilitate the coexistence between resident artists and scientists who regularly work at ITER, a technological, inspiring and stimulating environment.
The two planned residencies will be selected in the same call and will correspond to an international residence (best international project) and a Canarian residence (best Canarian project). The first year residencies have a theme of Energy Transition. They will last a maximum of 30 days during January-February 2022.
The final objective of the residencies is the production of a work of art that includes, as an indispensable element, the scientific work and research carried out in Tenerife in its most internationally recognised fields, whether in the conceptual or productive development of the work. The artistic concept must also be in line with Technarte’s philosophy regarding the fusion between art and technology.
International artists and researchers specialised in the field of art, technology and science may apply to the call.
In addition to providing accommodation and working space, the programme provides a round trip ticket from the artist’s place of residence to the ITER facilities (with a maximum amount of €1500), a stipend and travel insurance.
