After two successful editions of the transnational CoLaboratory digital residencies programs, the network of German cultural centres in Romania and the Republic of Moldova invites 𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗿𝘀 to join its third edition in 2022. Within this year’s CoLaboratory program, new artistic work, interdisciplinary research, intercultural dialogue and innovative thinking processes are to be explored and promoted again.
After more than two years of isolation and social distancing, the world is now pendulating between slow rejuvenation and turmoil due to continuous socio-political unrest, change, political restlessness and displacement. Larger and larger groups of people are struggling with integration, acceptance, de-naturalization or forced migration. Others aim for acceptance, assimilation and struggle to integrate constant changes within their own groups. What are the current struggles that we are facing, in what ways can they be quantified, and how can we open and entertain conversations about such difficult and ever-shifting topics?
We invite artists and researchers to explore the theme of UNREST and to reflect on current, past and future shifts within these complex dynamics. The aim is to create new media artworks that are inspired by scientific data and explore the boundaries between the spheres of art, science, and technology.
The interdisciplinary residencies program CoLaboratory 3.0 brings together 𝟭𝟬 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗶𝗽𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗳𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀, grouping them in 𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗿𝘀 𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗹𝘂𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗻 𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝘀𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗮 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗿 from Brașov, Bucharest, Chișinău, Cluj-Napoca, Sibiu, and from Germany and/or Ukraine.
