School of Art and Design Zurich

Description 

Since 2003, the artists-in-labs program has been facilitating artistic research by way of long-term residencies for artists in scientific laboratories and research institutes. This programme, organised by the Institute for Cultural Studies in the Arts (ICS) at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), promotes sustainable collaboration between artists and scientists of all disciplines, not just in Switzerland but all around the world. These long-term interdisciplinary and cross-border collaborations provide artists with an opportunity to critically engage with the sciences and their experimental and aesthetic dimensions. This includes explorations of the site of the laboratory, as well as a range of scientific topics, methods and technologies.

Their interests lie in the interaction and expansion of types of contemporary knowledge and artistic production, and the creative potential resulting from exploring the parallels and differences of scientific and artistic practices. They perceive their work as being culturally engaged and of a curatorial and mediatory nature.

Outcome 

Presentations during the residency, a small exhibition at the end of the residency, a video documentary (produced by the artists-in-labs team) and a project report (to be provided by the artist and the hosting science lab).

Studio Information 

A workplace or studio space at the science laboratory.
