Artist in Residence: Akademie Schloss Solitude calls for Web Residencies, curated by dgtl fmnsm


With the 17th Call for Web Residencies by Akademie Schloss Solitude, curated by Sarah Fartuun Heinze, Andara Shastika, Franziska Goralski and Ulla Heinrich for dgtl fmnsm, artists are invited to experience, explore and enjoy taking a restful break in a utopian space of possibility from an intersectional and queer feminist perspective. 

The residency is interested in what artists and collectives do in their breaks, which aesthetic and emotional practices exist and which ones have yet to be invented. Who can actually take breaks, and what class issues are associated with breaks? What is more feminist than taking a break together, alone, or just because? What if our lives were structured by pleasure, softness and community instead of our deadlines? What happens to us when we close the tabs in our head? What do breaks in the digital world look like? What would we do if we did not make use of every opportunity? What qualities must a break display in order to be more than a mere charging station in the capitalist cycle of exploitation, and is this even possible?

Web Residency: January 10 – February 10, 2022
Project launch: mid-February 2022

This call is rewarded with a four-week residency and a 750-euro grant.
