AboutSEARCH ENGINE is a six-week open-residencies programme aimed at facilitating new processes of production, collaborative research and forms of distribution.
During SEARCH ENGINE Grand Union's project space will be transformed into a place of arrival and departure, from which data will be searched, collected, tested, inputted and outputted into contexts that will emerge through the process of artistic research and production.
For SEARCH ENGINE Grand Union has invited three artists groups - Manu Luksch & Mukul Patel, American Mountains, GOTO10 - to work in the project space for two weeks each; taking as their departure point the investigation of the complex relationship between history and technology, and the way it connects to Grand Union's locale, Digbeth (Birmingham).
