The Alex Adriaansens Residency

The Alex Adriaansens Residency is a residency in honour of our former director and co-founder Alex Adriaansens.

Every year, The Alex Adriaansens Residency is awarded to an artist whose work explores the aesthetic potential of the materiality of technical media, in line with Alex Adriaansens' fascination for the interaction between matter and media. The residency will give an established artist or designer the possibility to conduct a year-long research into the material basis of our digital culture. The residency takes place in collaboration with V2_ over the span of one year.


A stipend plus materials, travel and accommodation expenses; workspace at V2_; curatorial, managerial and productional support by V2_ staff.

Selection criteria

A jury 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 work; completeness of the application.

The Alex Adriaansens Residency is supported by Gemeente Rotterdam.
