The Alex Adriaansens Residency, by V2_ (Rotterdam, NL), provides a Dutch or international artist or designer the possibility to conduct a year-long research project into the material basis and aesthetics of our digital culture.
As the realm of media art and design grew increasingly obsessed with everything digital and virtual, V2_’s late director and co-founder, Alex Adriaansens, became fascinated by the interaction between matter and media. In memory of his strong focus on artists and designers as the alchemists of our time, V2_ is seeking artistic and design research projects that explore the ways in which media technology, its products and their reception, are informed by materiality.
The Alex Adriaansens Residency provides a Dutch or international artist or designer the possibility to conduct a research project focusing on the material basis and aesthetics of our digital culture. The recipient will work in partnership with V2_ over the span of one year.
You can find the application form on V2_’s website (link below).
A jury, consisting of Joke Brouwer, Boris Debackere and Andreas Broeckmann, will select one proposal, based on the following criteria:
• originality of the research proposal;
• tangible outcomes of the residency;
• artistic merit and integrity of the proposed project;
• completeness of the application.
