for artists from Switzerland

How can we become more human? How can microbes save the earth? How can we co-exist with technology as our second nature? Artists have always understood the power of questions.

The ArTS Production Grant for artists from Switzerland was made possible through a two-year-agreement developed by Ars Electronica and supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia. The ArTS Production Grant fosters artistic creation at the nexus of ArTS (Art, Technology, Society).

The ArTS Production Grant supports an individual artist or an artist group who holds Swiss nationality or has their residence in Switzerland, to develop a new project or an extension of an existing project, that will be premiered at the Ars Electronica Festival September in 2024.

Art practitioners from Switzerland from all disciplines supported by Pro Helvetia, including sound, interactive media, or visual arts, have already submitted their proposals for 2024 and joined us in exploring the intersection of humanity and technology through art.
