MEDIA HOMES. Artist residency

Call for projects: MEDIA HOMES. Online artist residency.
The research-creation association After Social Networks is launching its first call for online artistic residencies for the start of the 2020 academic year.  
After Social Networks is an association that hybridizes creation and research practices, in order to think about the status of user-generated content, as well as the media ecosystem in which they are embedded. It is composed of artists and researchers who are committed to designing encounters between various disciplines, imaginaries and practices.
This call for residency is open to digital artists whose work explores online social networks, or who are in the process of developing a project related to this theme. The residency, lasting two consecutive weeks, will take place on the association’s Instagram account (@aftersocialnetworks). It will consist of the production of a series of original contents designed for this Instagram account, thus turned into a curatorial platform. This series will reflect creatively on the different ways in which online social networks inform our perceptions, interactions and daily media practices.
The proposed theme for the residency is “Media Homes”. The selected artist, who may be French or international, will receive a grant of 300 € to produce this series.
Applications, consisting of a portfolio and a project for the residency of maximum 2 pages, should be sent in PDF format to ecologiedescgu@protonmail.com. The proposals will be evaluated by the members of the Association on the basis of their plastic originality, the quality of the theoretical reflection from which they will proceed, the originality of their interpretation of the proposed theme (“Media Homes”), and their capacity to stimulate a critical reflection about the digital platforms that will condition their dissemination.
Deadline for submission of projects: 15 October 2020
Publication of the selected project: 30 October 2020
Residence: November or December 2020
