With its Web Residencies, Akademie Schloss Solitude has been supporting artists, designers, cyborgs, hackers and researchers who use digital space since 2016 (collaborating with the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe from 2017-2020). The program takes place exclusively online.
Open calls take place three times a year, which are curated by invited experts or collectives. The curators select four people or collectives to participate a four-week web residency within the framework of each call. The work processes and results are presented online.
Akademie Schloss Solitude also awards the annual HASH Production Prize to an outstanding web residency project. The prize is endowed with 8,000 euros and supported by the foundation Stiftung Landesbank Baden-Württemberg.
