Open Call: Join the Digital Earth Fellowship 2018-2019

Previous Opportunity

Deadline : 19 August 2018 (23.59, CEST)

Digital Earth calls upon divergent artists and designers to examine, challenge and respond to the material and immaterial condition of our current technological reality. The geographical focus of the fellowship is on the entanglement of old and new routes that connect Asia to Africa, crossing the Middle East and Central Asia. Today these routes are crossed by goods, people and data at speeds faster than ever, through a circuit of ports, mines, airports, refineries, high speed railways, fiber optic cables and mobile antennas.

Digital Earth is a six-month fellowship for artists and designers based in Africa or Asia working across a variety of media who would like to investigate our current technological reality. It is a unique research support program that helps 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.
