PHxV2_ Digital Art Residency

PHxV2_ Digital Art Residency is a project of V2_ in cooperation with Pro Helvetia.

The PHxV2_ Digital Art Residency is a  residency program by  V2_ in cooperation with Pro Helvetia to enable artists, designers and cultural practitioners working within the crossover space between art and technology to explore the notion of artificial inequality.

Artificial inequality

 

The fading of the belief that purely technological solutions to big social and ecological problems exist is increasingly opening up a forum for developing alternative ideas about technological progress. This shift provides an opportunity to reflect on the imbalance between those who benefit from technological advances and those who pay the price for such “progress.” We consider art and design to be the experimental context in which this reflection should occur, as they offer us the imaginative scope to assess the impact of technological developments in a social context and to investigate radical alternatives. 

About the residency

 

We want to support projects that reflect on the question of who makes the decisions around artificial inequality, which politics drive it, and whether those politics can be changed in order to achieve greater social, climate and gender equality. The four-month hybrid residency is from September to December 2022, with two months of online collaboration, followed by two months of working in person at V2_. As the host of the residency, V2_ provides the residents with production and curatorial support and a workspace with equipment in Rotterdam. Towards the end of the residency, an event will be held to introduce the participants and their works in progress to V2_’s local network of contacts.
