ArtScience Residency 2021 enabled by Deutsche Telekom

In keeping with the focus of Art Collection Deutsche Telekom on contemporary art from Eastern Europe, the new residency will be dedicated to artists from / or who stand in relation to this region, who work at the interface between art, technology and science and who are particularly interested in researching the social impact of technological developments.
This new artists-in-residence program aims to foster interaction between international artists, researchers and scientists and Eastern European partners from research or industry. This program is intended to create a space for encounters in which artistic practice and scientific research can be combined in the best possible way….

“Life is for Sharing” —this is who we are, and this is what we stand for. We will not stand for hate or isolationism. Instead, our networks create connections between people. They overcome boundaries. They promote sharing. And they contribute to the creation of communities.

About Art Collection Telekom

The Art Collection Telekom was founded in 2010. It focuses on contemporary art from Eastern and South-eastern Europe and also looks to neighbouring countries such as Turkey or the Caucasus region. It has a European integrative orientation, because it wants to include the East of Europe in the discourse. It is open to all media, from the traditional, artisan techniques such as painting, drawing or sculpture to performance and video works. Since its foundation, it has followed the growing use of digital techniques in the production of art and artistic developments in social media.
The art of the Art Collection Deutsche Telekom seems to question the self-evident. It humorously points out prejudices and is a means of communication about the jointly shared and developed reality with a specific perspective on the history and current developments in Eastern Europe. The concentration on the area of countries which, after the fall of the Iron Curtain, have created new political structures and had initiated democratic developments, includes significant political, social and cultural changes. The Art Collection Deutsche Telekom makes an important contribution to an open, discursive and communicative culture, which is of great importance for mutual understanding in Europe.
