V2_, Lab for the Unstable Media is an interdisciplinary centre for art and media technology in Rotterdam (the Netherlands). The Summer Sessions are short-term international art and technology residencies for emerging artists and designers. A network of cultural organisations all over the world sponsors and hosts the residencies.
Every summer V2_ offers early-career artists and designers support so they can take part in production residencies abroad. If selected, you will gain an opportunity to work in a highly productive atmosphere with support, feedback and expert supervision. Each Summer Sessions residency lasts approximately eight weeks and takes place between June and September. During this period you will develop your project from concept to presentable work, ready to show.
Artists and designers working with art and technology are eligible to apply if they (1) are under the age of 35 and/or have graduated within the past five years and (2) live in a country where there is a Summer Sessions sponsoring partner.
The partners are:
國立臺灣美術館 National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts
아트센터 나비 art center nabi (South Korea)
Udruga Metamedij (Croatia)
Points Center for Contemporary Art (China)
Master in Technology and Aesthetics of Electronic Arts - National University of Tres de Febrero (Argentina)
Selected artists will receive access to the facilities of the host institution, expert support and an opportunity to present the resulting work at a public event. A budget will be provided to cover travel, accommodation, materials and a stipend.
