Open Call – Media Arts meets Science: fourth edition of Košice’s residency programme 2022

For the fourth consecutive year, Košice, a UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts since 2017, offers media artists and scientists a two-month residency programme. The residency, which will take place in autumn 2022, has been co-organized by the Municipality, Creative Industry Košice and KAIR (Košice Artists in Residence).

Under the theme of “Behavioural Change”, the upcoming edition will combine art and science and focus on exploring the ways that technology affects human behaviour, by challenging our understanding of behavioural norms, expectations and actions in both physical and digital worlds.

Media Arts Residency 2022 Application

Interested duos composed of one artist and one scientist, born, living or working in a UNESCO Creative City, were invited to apply for the programme, aimed at providing a space for networking, and experiences and knowledge sharing. The project invites the duos not only to explore and develop their work but also to immerse themselves in the local community, by taking active part in the local cultural and creative scene and promoting their own work in Košice.

The continuity and success of this annual programme demonstrate Košice’s steady commitment to investing in creative talents while encouraging international exchanges and cross-sector synergies. Art & Tech Days;

Media Arts Residency 2022

This year’s residency seeks to create space for one media artist and one scientist from a city designated as UNESCO Creative Cities to develop their art & science project. The residency is an opportunity to create a new project or to continue work on something in development by shifting its perspective and embracing the open call’s topic: BEHAVIOURAL CHANGE.

The open call is limited to the artists born, living, or working (residency permit and/or ID card) in a UNESCO Creative City. To learn more about the open call, read this brochure.
