In response to ongoing global pandemic we initiated in 2020 DIGITAL RESIDENCY program in cooperation with Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa. Project was created in order to meet expectations of the art world and it’s continuous process of digitalisation.
We are well aware of the fact that artists, despite pandemic limitations, effectively use the space of social media to present their creative practices.
As part of the second edition of DIGITAL RESIDENCY, we selected three artists from Poland and three from Germany. These are:
Bit Explorers Research Team (Wojciech Kukuczka, Marek Straszak, Jacek Czarkowski)
Neo Christopher Chung
The residencies will start at the beginning of August and will last until the end of October 2021. We will present its effects on the dedicated online platform digitalresidency.com.
▪️ FORMULA ▪️
Based on the submitted applications we’ve selected 3 people from Poland and three people from Germany for a three-week online artist-in-residence. Two of them will be held by authors living in Berlin and Wrocław, respectively.
Two artists will work simultaneously with the OP ENHEIM team. The effects of monthly residencies will be available on a specially created online platform. There will also be an online meeting with artists, during which they will talk about their artistic practice.
