About TAAT

TAAT was founded in 2012 by Breg Horemans and Gert-Jan Stam. At the core of their praxis is the long term artistic research project HALL33 which aims to ‘grow an architecture of encounter’. As part of this project TAAT is currently creating Encounter Portals, which are developed through an inclusive, process-based and horizontal network of creatives. These Portals are rooted in the individual, hybrid and multilayered encounters between human and non-human entities. The TAAT practice has an organic nature that promotes methods of artistic and ecological commoning. As a ‘liquid collective’ TAAT is shape shifting with every project and location and it is currently in the process of transforming itself into a regenerative art practice. More info:

Driving the Human: Call for Proposals



From February 10 to April 9, 2021, Driving the Human invites designers, artists, scientists, initiatives, and agents from any fields of expertise from anywhere in the world, to join us in shaping sustainable and collective futures that combine science, technology, and the arts in a transdisciplinary and collaborative approach. Our Open Call invites proposals that critically engage with the present and propose alternatives current developments and disruptions, reflecting on what makes us human, and reexamining our relationship with society, the planet, and life itself.   

Proposals may connect to larger themes, such as the social impact of climate change, energy cycles and our current technological acceleration, the mirror between the biosphere and the technosphere, contemporary processes of exchanging values and objects, and/or the impact of collective decision-making. Driving the Human welcomes proposals that embrace notions of urgency and radical openness as much as curiosity, interconnectedness, and new modes of collectivity across scales. Similarly, we encourage proposals that ask fundamental questions about the predominant narratives that we exchange about the world and our role in it.

After a series of crisis, from the economic to the pandemic, it is evident that humanity and its way of living on planet earth are endangered. Fundamental questions about issues such as mass consumption, factory farming, and mass tourism need to be reflected upon. We welcome new constellations for working and thinking together, connecting diverse knowledge and varied disciplines. 

Selected applicants will be invited to interact with the expertise and multidisciplinary know-how of the Driving the Human partner institutions – acatech, National Academy of Science and Engineering; the mentoring program Forecast; the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design; and ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe – to develop future-proof concepts and bring them to fruition as prototypes. Ultimately, the process and outcomes of Driving the Human become tools that enable new worldviews and open the doors to alternative ways of coexisting. 

The application deadline is Friday, April 9, 2021, at 11:59pm CET. Applications must be submitted in English, via our online application form.

Please consult our Application Guidelines, Terms and Conditions, and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information.
