Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 25 July 2018

Applications are now open for the Digital Earth Fellowship 2018-2019 which is a 6 month-long fellowship for artists and designers based in Africa or Asia, working across a variety of media, who would like to investigate current technological reality.

It is a unique research support programme, which supports experienced artists to reflect, research, experiment and produce work.

The fellowship consists of a monthly stipend for work and production costs, mentorship and other various resources. The final results will be exhibited in a roaming exhibition.

Topics

Examples of possible research topics are: the infrastructure of Mongolian crypto-mining, the performativity of the robot-ports on the Siberian coastline, the soundscapes of the coltan mines in the heartlands of Congo, the cultural protocols of freeport zones, the aesthetics of satellite imagery, the agency of machinic vision, the political imaginations of geoengineering projects – and more.

The Digital Earth Fellowship provides:

  • A stipend to enable research, experimentation and to produce work in a specific geographic location in Africa or Asia, for 6 months. The exact amount of the stipend will be based on the cost of living of the country where the research will take place.
  • Access to a research and production infrastructure consisting of a network of researchers, (online) theory and practice courses, research institutes, exhibition venues, creative hubs, art biennales, residencies and companies.
  • A mentor, who will support applicants in their research. The Digital Earth mentors are internationally-renowned artists, designers and researchers.
