Web Residencies 2017 – Call No.1
In 2017, Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart and the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe will announce three calls for »Web Residencies« with different topics designed by invited curators. »Web Residencies« are carried out exclusively online, the works will be presented and documented on www.schloss-post.com and web-residencies.zkm.de.
The »Web Residencies« program was initiated by Akademie Schloss Solitude in 2016 to support young talents from the international digital scene as well as artists of all disciplines who deal with web-based practices to present the process and results of their work online.
