Topic: Language in the context of arts and technology
The new digital era is changing the use of language and communication. Technologies brought new ways in which humans interact, whether it is through e-mail, social media or instant messaging and these are based on machine languages. Technology has also influenced art, and programming languages have made an impact on the creation of contemporary art. Many artists incorporated code into their practice. During the residency, the artist should explore the language in the context of art and technology.
The call offers:
Scholarship 2000 EURO (gross)
Covering of transportation costs to and from Košice
Providing accommodation in Košice
A budget for technical production (up to 5000 Euro)
