Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) push the boundaries of human knowledge. Unconventional ways of thinking and creativity open novel and visionary fields of research that radically shift. Our project aims to bring together artists and FET projects using best practice methods to create high-impact collaborative outcomes including the production of new artworks, major exhibitions, media campaigns, and socially engaged events including festivals, debates and participatory workshops.
Six leading international artists will be hosted within FET projects through fully funded embedded residencies (budget € 18,000). Through in-depth collaborations with researchers and reflecting on the projects, the artists will explore, engage and communicate these new areas of research to reach the widest possible audiences, opening up societal discussions, raising awareness and enhancing take-up of radically new technologies.
The FEAT Residency programme is part of the European Union Horizon 2020 supported project FEAT – Future Emerging Art and Technology, and is a collaboration between eutema (Vienna), Waag (Amsterdam) and Youris (Brussels), working with artist/curator Anna Dumitriu.
