Web Residencies

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.

Open Call 2020

Curated by Johanna Hedva

Post-Doom

For Akademie Schloss Solitude’s Call for Web Residencies No. 14, we invited artist and musician Johanna Hedva as curator. Moving away from all-encompassing dystopian future scenarios, »Post-Doom« explores how the perception of a lost present is inscribed in and reproduced in our everyday experiential spaces. As a seductive counterpart to this seemingly hopeless approaching terminal sate (or standstill), Hedva calls for us to rethink beginnings, new multiple entry points, and experiences that reveal the longing for a whole, unmediated potential of our present and future.
