European ARTificial Intelligence Lab launching first residency in Buenos Aires and Linz – Call for residency
Deadline: 17 February 2019
Together with twelve prestigious art and cultural institutions, Ars Electronica is launching the European ARTificial Intelligence Lab – an extensive activity programme including exhibitions, labs, workshops, conferences, talks, performances, concerts, mentorings and residencies.
Applications are now open for both established artists and emerging talents to apply for a residency of several weeks at a scientific partner institution and at the Ars Electronica Futurelab. This first residency will focus on “Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence”.
Research into human neural systems and processes is a key element in the understanding of artificial intelligent systems and essential for the evolution of many areas where AI is applied.
The residency is divided into two phases:
- Selected artists first travel to Buenos Aires, Argentina. In Muntref Centro de Arte y Ciencia and Laboratorio de Neurociencia de la Universidad Torquato Ditella they will be accompanied by a scientific mentor for three to six weeks to gather inspiration.
- The second part leads the artists to Linz, Austria, to Ars Electronica Futurelab. A mentor will support the winning artists of the AILab Residency. The final outputs will be presented at the Ars Electronica Festival.
The residency offers:
- A participation fee of € 3.000;
- A production budget of € 5.000;
- Accommodation and travel.
The deadline for applications is 17 February 2019.
Please apply online via this link and include the following material:
- A personal testimony video (max 5 min.);
- An outline of a possible concept/idea;
- A draft production plan;
- A selected portfolio of work;

The European ARTificial Intelligence Lab is a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
