Open Call for Scientists
Studiotopia - Art meets science in the anthropocene
STUDIOTOPIA is a creative journey addressing sustainable development across Europe through the converging views of art and science. This initiative aims to increase collaborations between cultural and research institutions, academia, innovation centres, creatives and European citizens.
In the course of almost two years, STUDIOTOPIA will offer 13 artists and 13 scientists a unique opportunity to collaborate together for a duration of seventeen months. Our residency programme aims to encourage scientists to exchange ideas, knowledge and methodologies with International visual artists while visiting their studios. Results, developed concepts, research material or artworks generated during STUDIOTOPIA residencies will be exhibited in partnering venues across Europe. The residency aims to create opportunities for artists and scientists to share their expertise with wide international audiences, curators, art specialists, and researchers.
We call upon scientists to join artists in this speculative journey and to propose tentative solutions to global challenges in a collaborative, non-hierarchical residency.
