European Media Art Platform Announces Selected Artists for 2024.

What noise is actually cancelled from the world by noise-cancelling technology? What tactics can we use to trick biased AI hiring bots? How can the reinterpretation of archaic cultural contexts shed new light on our present? These are some of the exciting questions the artists selected for the EMAP 2024 residencies will work on. Other selected artists will create synthetic rainbows, collect biological traces and memories in a pandemic archive or explore topics such as compost as superfood, exhausted landscapes and the link between time and weather.

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, 75 projects have been commissioned, which received over 30 international awards. Many more EMAP commissions have been presented at prestigious institutions such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Tate Modern in London, Filmfest Locarno, and the Venice Biennale. Following an international open call which received 586 artist proposals from 42 countries, we are excited to announce the artists selected for 2024. All the 16 media artists and artist groups will take part in an international two-month fully funded residency with an EMAP member organisation, culminating in several group exhibitions over the next 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.
