by Akademie Schloss Solitude
The Web Residencies program was initiated by Akademie Schloss Solitude in 2016 to support young talents from the international digital scene as well as artists of all disciplines who deal with web-based practices to present the process and results of their work online.
For each call, a curator selects four project proposals, whose creators are rewarded with a four-week residency and 750 Euro. Artists are invited to experiment with digital technologies and new art forms, and reflect on the topics set by the curators.
In the years 2017–2020, Akademie Schloss Solitude and ZKM | Center for Art and Media have announced in cooperation nine calls for web residencies with different topics that were designed by invited curators. In the years 2018 and 2020, the production prize »Hash« was awarded for outstanding projects by the Web Residents. The price is being sponsored by the Stiftung Landesbank Baden-Württemberg.
