Online application for The Alex Adriaansens Residency.
V2_, Lab for the Unstable Media is an interdisciplinary center for art and media technology in Rotterdam (the Netherlands). V2_ presents, produces, archives and publishes research at the interface of art, technology and society. Founded in 1981, V2_ offers a platform for artists, designers, scientists, researchers, theorists, and developers of software and hardware from various disciplines to discuss their work and share their findings. In V2_'s view, art and design play an essential role in the social embedding of technological developments. V2_ creates a context in which issues regarding the social impact of technology are explored through critical dialogue, artistic reflection and practice-oriented research.
V2_ offers residencies to professional artists, both full residencies and so-called Summer Sessions.
Current open call 2021: The Alex Adriaansens Residency provides a Dutch or international artist or designer the possibility to conduct a year-long research project into the material basis and aesthetics of our digital culture. The recipient will work in partnership with V2_ over the span of one year. As the realm of media art and design grew increasingly obsessed with everything digital and virtual, V2_’s late director and cofounder, Alex Adriaansens, became fascinated by the interaction between matter and media. In memory of his strong focus on artists and designers as the alchemists of our time, V2_ is seeking artistic and design research projects that explore the ways in which media technology, its products and their reception, are informed by materiality.
