European Media Art Platform Announces Selected Artists for 2023.

This year’s selected artists for the European Media Art Platform’s residency programme take on unusual connections and current issues in a variety of ways. They explore the coexistence of urban centres and natural ecosystems, illuminate exciting possibilities for interplanetary existence, confront current scepticism about technology and “techlore”, and work between art and artistic research.

The European Media Art Platform (EMAP), co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, aims to support collaboration projects by emerging artists who work critically with technologies in the fields of video, digital art, robotics, bio art and other forms of media art. Since the launch of the platform in 2018, 59 projects have been commissioned, which received 18 international awards. Many more EMAP commissions have been presented at prestigious institutions such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Barbican in London, Filmfest Locarno, and the Venice Biennale. Following an international open call which received 641 artist proposals from 35 countries, we are excited to announce the selected artists for 2023. Each of the 16 media artists and artist groups will take part in an international two months, fully funded residency with an EMAP partner organisation, culminating in several group exhibitions within the next 2 years.

About European Media Art Platform:
The European Media Art Platform (EMAP), initiated by Werkleitz and co-funded by Creative Europe since 2018, is a consortium of leading European media art organisations specialising in video, digital art, robotics, bio art and other forms of media art. The consortium has 16 members and over 80 partners, and it includes renowned festivals, laboratories and institutions that investigate and present these interdisciplinary art forms. Through an open call, EMAP members offer emerging artists two-month residencies to support the production of new projects and the development of their professional careers. EMAP is built on the legacy of the European Media Artist in Residence Exchange (EMARE) which has existed since 1995. EMAP also acts as a platform for members partners to select artists and works for festivals and exhibitions they organize. In addition to production support for artists, EMAP provides an international platform for collaboration and the promotion and dissemination of media art.
