Residency call by Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai and ZKM | Center for Art and Media

About the residency:
Over the next two years the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai will focus on programmes that deal with the intersections between arts, technology and civil society. The aim of the programme is to promote media arts that can then be used as tools to promote public engagement. Most of these programmes would take the form of small co-creating interdisciplinary sessions aimed towards developing larger collaborative projects. 

In view of the above the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai in collaboration with the ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Germany would like to offer two artists a residency at the Hertz Lab in ZKM. The residency is aimed at promoting ideas in sound art, music, Ai based artistic projects, media arts amongst others. We will be selecting one artist with more of a visual focus (mappers, animators, etc) and one with a music or sound focus (sound artists, musicians, etc), however both should be open to exploring different methodologies and media.


What is offered?
The ZKM | Hertz-Lab offers artists working in all genres - from the visual arts to music - to try out a diversity of technologies in collaboration with scientists and developers. The main focuses of the Hertz Lab are art production and research on media technology. Contemporary concepts in the arts and sciences, for example, artificial intelligence, extended reality, immersion and sensor-enabled environments are carefully reflected on, reviewed for artistic usability, and implemented in productions. Scholars, scientists, and artists from all over the world find ideal conditions at the ZKM to realize their theoretical and practical projects. With its Hertz-Lab the ZKM is also a research center that connects science, technology, and art in a new alliance for the digital age.

  • Each resident would have to work independently or together on their project ideas, they will be offered technical facilities of the lab and also be given timely guidance by experts at the lab for a month.
  • The Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai will cover one round trip to Karlsruhe Germany.
  • Each resident will received a stipend equivalent of € 1200,00, that would cover their accommodation and living expenses in Karlsruhe.
  • The ZKM would help in finding accommodation, however residents would have to book it themselves.
Towards the end of the residency there will also be public presentation of the project. The final format would depend on the work but for example it could be a concert or an interactive session.
