With its Web Residencies, Akademie Schloss Solitude has been supporting artists, designers, cyborgs, hackers and researchers who use digital space since 2016. The program takes place exclusively online.


Selection procedure

Akademie Schloss Solitude launches several calls for Web Residencies a year. Artists are invited to experiment with digital technologies and new art forms, and reflect on the topics set by the curators or curatorial collectives. Artists are rewarded with a four to eight weeks residency and 1,200 Euro.

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 has been sponsored by the Stiftung Landesbank Baden-Württemberg.
