Aalto University is a community of bold thinkers where science and art meet technology and business. We are seeking two artists and a scientist to work together in the Aalto Biofilia – A Base for Biological Arts in the Aalto University, Finland for four-week-period in February-March 2021.
This residency gives artists and a scientist an opportunity to realize artistic work in a fully equipped laboratory dedicated to bioart and to meet researchers and doctoral students of Aalto University and Department of Art in the Aalto Otaniemi Campus. We hope artistic work reflects critically upon technical manipulation and exploitation of living systems, biological beings, other species, and/or the biosphere at large. The aim is to create artwork(s) in relation the explored themes.
We welcome applications from artists and scientists, as a duo, as a group, or individually. For each we offer a compensation up to 5000 euros covering living costs during the residence and some of the cost of production and show.
Deadline 30 September 2020
