PRAKSIS’s 18th residency: Perfection / Speculation

Website: https://www.praksisoslo.org/residencies-blog/2020/r18

Residency 18 Perfection / Speculation proposes a multi-disciplinary investigation of the meanings and ethics of genetic technologies. This residency is developed with artist and designer Adam Peacock and curator Danai Papadimitriou, held in collabortaion with the Vigeland Museum and Karmaklubb. Applications are invited from investigators whose focus is on the modifiable human body as a medium of expression, experimentation, research and social interaction. Artists, designers, scientists, writers, psychologists, programmers, film- and video-makers, anthropologists and others based in Oslo, across Norway or internationally, are all welcome to apply. PRAKSIS are looking for talented individuals with distinctive approaches to the residency topic, whatever their specialism. It is intended that the final selection will reflect the scientific as well as the social and cultural dimensions of the area in focus. Selected residents will be part of a temporary community of between five and eight local and international participants. The residency will involve group activities, discussion and creative exchange around the residency theme, as well as time for independent working. Selection is based on applicants’ ability both to gain from, and contribute to, the activities of the month-long residency. This residency is free of charge and offers comfortable accommodation for non-Oslo based residents in central Oslo. International applicants receive a stipend of 3000 NOK (approximately 300 euros) towards additional costs. There is an application fee of 75 NOK (approximately £6.35/€7.42/US$8.20) which goes entirely towards administration costs.
