SpeakAIR Online Residency 2021

The digitization of our world has accelerated faster than ever with the pandemic. We look at ourselves in the reflection on a computer screen and tirelessly wonder who/what we are becoming. Each day is the moment which N. Katherine Hayles defined as “a critical juncture when interventions might be made to keep disembodiment from being rewritten, once again into the prevailing concept of subjectivity.” While the fear of the posthuman world reemerges, others may see this moment as an opportunity to revisit and rethink problematic practices rooted within the history of humanism. 

In the age of New Media, how can we use technology to debunk the myth of universal human nature? How can one become a xeno – a foreign entity that constructs its own reality by rejecting universality and installing an updated reimagined-self? 

For the second edition of SpeakAIR in collaboration with motomoto, we invite an artist working in the fields of digital art and new media art to explore your idea of “xeno” and how this state will impact our perspective of the world. The selected artist will conduct research online for a month to build ideas by involving the online audience into the thinking process. Our platforms should be used as a map of your research.  

After the period, the artist will be given 3 months to complete the project for the exhibition in the fall at motomoto, a micro artist residency in Kumamoto Japan, along with their artist resident Mutsumi Tomosada. Our online/remote residency aims to offer a context for an artist to develop his/her/their work. For this reason, we are looking for someone who takes this opportunity seriously. Since this is an online/remote residency, we give priority to a project that can be realized easily without the presence of the artist.

Call for applications -Principal Residency Program 2022

Share

La Becque is launching its new call for applications for its Principal Residency Program, seeking residents for 2022.

La Becque's Principal Residency Program offers three- and six-month residencies to selected applicants. The residencies will be held between January and November, 2022. Details about the full yearly calendar and available residency periods in 2022 are available on La Becque's website, which provides all information and forms pertaining to the call (application criteria and guidelines, FAQ, and application form).

The Principal Residency Program is oriented towards confirmed artists as well as up-and-coming practitioners with a high development potential. It continues to dedicate particular attention to projects exploring the interplay of nature and technology—two notions which are more than ever intertwined and, even more since the onset of the pandemic, at the core of contemporary preoccupations.

A purposefully broad playfield, this thematic nexus opens up very diverse yet similarly rewarding avenues of exploration—for example: documenting what and who makes up the “Anthropocene”; investigating notions such as exploration, extraction, the politics of nature, interspecies communication, proto-technologies and nature, etc.; using technological tools to document and transcribe natural environments into artistic contexts; exploring new junctures at which technology becomes part of our natural environments, and vice versa.

Principal Residency Program participants will be selected globally by a transdisciplinary jury of experts. The jury selecting 2022 residents is composed of percussionist Alexandre Babel (Berliner Ensemble, Eklekto Geneva Percussion Center), Patrick de Rham (director, Arsenic Lausanne), visual artist Latifa EchakhchJean-Paul Felley (curator and director of EDHEA—the Valais School of Art), Sabine Himmelsbach (director, HEK—Haus für elektronische Künste, Basel), Elise Lammer (curator and art critic, Institut Kunst HGK FHNW), and Stefano Stoll (director, Images Vevey), joined by Fondation Françoise Siegfried-Meier board members Anne-Catherine de Perrot and Tamara Jenny-Devrient, and La Becque director Luc Meier, as well as additional jurors to be announced at a later date.
