Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics
The INHABIT Artist-in-Residence Program of the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics invites artists from various disciplines to collaborate with their team of scientists and researchers. The integration of artistic thinking and knowledge as reflective practices in their own right is an important dimension of the Institute’s mission. For this the presence of art and the inspiration and challenge of artistic practice are essential. The interaction between these different perspectives creates a productive space for artists and scientists to collaborate in.
For this reason, INHABIT invites artists to spend four months creating new work, or further developing an existing project, in a scientific research environment. Openness to the mission of the Institute and interest and readiness to work together with individual researchers or research groups are natural preconditions. During the residency, the Institute will provide space, resources, and facilities for productive experimentation, dialogue, and collaboration.
Work developed during the residency will be presented in cooperation with various local arts institutions in the form of an exhibition, performance, concert, or other presentation, and complemented by discursive formats.
The residency is open to:
- Artists from different disciplines (with a focus on time-based and performing arts, installation and music) who are interested in interdisciplinary collaboration between the artistic and scientific fields;
- Artists who are open to developing and sharing a project in the form of an exhibition, performance, concert, or other format;
- Artists who are active in contemporary culture and respond to the Institute with innovative and challenging ideas.
The duration of residency is 4 months: INHABIT #9: March–June 2023 and INHABIT #10: September–December 2023.
Exhibition, performance, concert or other form of presentation.
