Open Call for Artists: Arts@CERN

Particle physics and the arts are inextricably linked: both are ways to explore our existence – what it is to be human and our place in the universe. The two fields are natural creative partners for innovation, research and development in the 21st century.

DEADLINE: Jan. 25, 2016 (extended)

The theme of this fourth edition of Collide@CERN Geneva is literature and digital writing. CERN invites writers and creators working in this experimental realm, and using digital formats as new forms of expression in writing to apply for a 3-month residency at CERN. Proposals should comment further into digital writing than the digitization of the analog, and use inventive ways linked to digital technologies and the networked society as well as ways information is generated and distributed online or offline. The writing proposals can be either in English or French.

The beneficiary will work at CERN for three months, during which time he/she will be supported with the guide and partnership of a CERN scientific partner. During this period the Arts@CERN team will curate and coordinate visits to experiments, encounters and conversations with scientists, engineers and staff at CERN.

A jury of experts will review the submissions and select the winner. The laureate artist will spend a residency of three months at CERN and will receive a grant of CHF 15’000 (fifteen thousand Swiss Francs) and a total amount of up to CHF 15,000 (fifteen thousand Swiss Francs), administered by CERN, for the development of a project.

Always wanted to be at the forefront of riveting art that is trans-disciplinary and pushes the boundaries of technological and artistic possibilities? Then submit your application for DA4GA and take a chance on winning € 25,000 for your project!

DA4GA highlights and explores the exciting and novel possibilities between design, artistic practice and Life Sciences. Inaugurated by the Netherlands Genomics Initiative, Waag Society, Naturalis and CSG – Centre for Society and the Life Sciences, DA4GA aims to stimulate emerging designers and artists to delve into the world of bio-art, and produce new work in close collaboration with the most prestigious Dutch Life Science institutes in the field of sustainability, food, health, bio-informatics, agriculture, energy and safety.

Did you graduate no longer than five years ago in the field of art or design? Do the breakthroughs of Life Sciences fascinate you, and do you have a knack for (applied) arts and/or design? Then we want you to send in your CV, portfolio and idea for a project that combines artistic merit with the vast developments in Life Sciences…”
