Eligibility:

This past year saw a surfeit of digital interactions, spaces, and communication in our online worlds. Poor internet connections, unfriendly interfaces and privacy concerns are among the issues we face as users of online platforms. This open call seeks to question how an alternative digital space could look and feel.

In line with these issues, Enter asks you:

How would you redesign the tools, visual design and interactions of Enter, in order to create and alter intimate, human-focused online interaction in the platform?

We call upon all thinkers and creators with experience in digital culture to apply!

Enter is a video conferencing platform for online and hybrid events in the cultural field, developed by Het Nieuwe Instituut. Enter combines ongoing experimental design and development with critical reflection on the implications of online platforms. There are many assumptions built into existing platforms such as Zoom and Facebook, without the possibility for users to appropriate any of these tools. The focus of Enter is on finding more human-centred ways to present online and hybrid cultural programming, addressing a range of use cases in the cultural field. The platform has been in development since April 2020 and currently hosts artist residencies, collaborative research projects, live streams, online event recordings and small group meetings.

For this online residency, you will be working with the Enter project team, all of whom have trained as artists and share an experimental approach to design. Together with our team, you will create an artwork as a separate ‘room’ in Enter, that will be available to an online audience for the duration of the exhibition Temporary House of Home. This residency is a chance for us all to experiment and together see how we can devise a new digital platform for communities and networks. If it ‘breaks’ or falls apart, we also see that as a worthwhile experiment.

Prizes Details: 

This is a remote residency. A stipend of  €1,500 will be provided for the resident. 

Deadline: 
20/December/2021
