Art meets Science in the Anthropocene


Studiotopia is a European initiative that seeks to inspire transdisciplinary innovation by addressing the ecological implications of the Anthropocene. The initiative is supported by eight European cultural institutions. For the duration of this initiative, Studiotopia will offer 13 artists and 13 scientists the unique opportunity to collaborate for 17 months. The residency programme aims to encourage scientists to exchange ideas, knowledge and methodologies with visual artists from all over the world while visiting their studios. The results, concepts, research or artworks generated during the Studiotopia residencies will be exhibited at partner sites across Europe. The aim of the programme is also to better understand how artists and scientists can work together, and how these interactions can contribute to the achievement of the UN’s sustainable development goals.

Within the framework of Studiotopia, GLUON invited artists Siobhān McDonald, Voldemārs Johansons and Kuang-Yi Ku to participate to the program.

STUDIOTOPIA is funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union
