Call for applications – Vilém Flusser Residency Programme, Berlin – deadline 31 August 2011

The Vilém Flusser Theory Award has been turned into a Residency Programme for artistic research. The newly organised Vilém Flusser Residency Programme supports projects and activities which are simultaneously conceptual and practice-based. The programme is geared towards the initiation of new research or to the further development of existing projects. This is not a production grant and while a public presentation/event will be expected, there is no pressure to present finished works. Where applicable, the support of publications, exhibitions, interventions and other results of the residency may be negotiated on a project to project basis. Special priority will be given to young and/or emerging artist-researchers. The program starts from April 2012 on as a 2 month work-and research-residency in Berlin. The applicant selected by the jury will have the oppportunity to further develop the submitted project during the time of the residency.

deadline: August 31 2011
