Focus Media Arts

The Goethe-Institut and Bozar, together with iMAL in Belgium and Cairotronica in Egypt, organise a media arts residency programme in spring 2022. We are looking for four artists from the Arab world and from Europe to engage in a 2-week residency in Brussels (Belgium).

The programme is composed of 2 sessions, from which the selected participants can choose a preference: one in March 2022 (14-27.03.22), and one in May 2022 (16-29.05.22).

The residency programme focuses on prototyping, experimenting, and exchanging ideas with fellow artists from different backgrounds, as well as local cultural players. For each session, the programme will bring together two artists to give them the opportunity to develop their respective projects. The residency will also be the occasion for them to explore common grounds, share knowledge and provide each other constructive feedback on a regular basis.
The participants will be given access to iMAL’s infrastructure as well as its Fablab (see list of available tools and machines below), which philosophy is centered around knowledge sharing, DYI culture and open source communities. Artists will be invited to work alongside iMAL’s team, with a shared goal: to produce and experiment autonomously, building on each other’s expertise. Therefore, artists will receive a basic support but are expected to have a minimum knowledge of available machine use.

Application deadline: 21 October 2021.

This media arts residency is part of the project Halaqat. 
The European project Halaqat is implemented by the Goethe-Institut in collaboration with Bozar - Centre for Fine Arts Brussels. Halaqat is co-funded by the European Commission (under the designation: EU-LAS CULTURE), the Goethe-Institut and Bozar.
