Open Call: Digital Residency for artists from South India + Media Art Exhibition in Germany
We are happy to announce a digital residency programme, initiated out of a collaboration between the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore, Walkin Studios Bangalore and Netzwerk Medien Kunst // C. Rockefeller Center for the Contemporary Arts, Dresden, Germany. This is the forerunner for a larger collaboration starting 2021 under the banner of the bangaloREsidency, involving sustained artistic exchange between Bangalore and Dresden.
In these very difficult times for artists and their exhibition projects and independent research, thanks to widespread cancellations due to lockdowns and work/travel restrictions, we want to encourage artistic production and reflection about the present structure and circumstances of our underlying operating system, the so-called consciousness.
