Scientist in Residence program

Gluon launches Scientist in Residence program

What happens when the ‘artist in residence’ model reverses into science? The GLUON Scientist-In-Residence programme is designed for a new generation of scientists interested in collaborating with artists.

Our intention is to challenge the hierarchy between the arts & empirical sciences predominant in the twentieth century, and challenge the technological and scientific determinism by enabling artists’ to input experimentally creative, critical and societal ideas.

The GLUON Scientist-in-Residence programme is a collaboration between Ars Electronica, BOZAR, the Serpentine Gallery and several universities and research institutions. For the 2017/18 edition of the programme Hans Ulrich Obrist has been invited as the lead curator along with invited artists Rachel Rose, Manthia Diawara, Jan De Cock & Damian Ortega.

The initiative will be accompanied by two exhibitions: a poster show with slogans and statements from the participating researchers, as well as a historical exhibition on highlighting arts and technology organisations which have added significantly to shaping the future of interdisciplinary collaborations.
