A Co-production Residency for Developing Researchers
Residency dates: June 24 to July 21, 2007
Application deadline: April 9, 2007
The Banff New Media Institute (BNMI) invites researchers working with
new media at the masters, doctorate or post-doctorate level to spend
four weeks at The Banff Centre this summer.
Join BNMI for its first independent research-based Co-production
Residency program, bringing together a select group of researchers.
Individuals and small networks who are working with art and new media
as a research strategy are invited to explore the broader social
contexts of technology and digital culture.
Participants will be supported to pursue their self-directed
research. They will also be given the opportunity to reflect on the
field of new media and contemporary issues such as creative pluralism
and multiple modes of knowledge production.
Participants will have the opportunity to develop their research with
a peer group of ten participants and the support and mentorship of
BNMI alumni and Reference Check peer advisors. These advisors will
work with participants individually and as a group to help focus
their ideas, and suggest methodologies, collaborative and
multidisciplinary forms, and ways of enhancing their work and impact
in the world.
Andreas has recently finished his seven-year tenure as director of
transmediale, the Berlin-based festival for art and digital culture.
He brings extensive curatorial experience in the field of art and
media with regard to the development, realization, and documentation
of new research projects, and their presentation in exhibitions,
workshops, and other event formats.
Anne brings a strong background in critical social and cultural
studies of new technologies. Her research in sociology and
anthropology concentrates on people's local and global mobility
experiences and how they relate to a variety of technologies
including cell phones, RFID, and biometrics.
Sarat Maharaj is a research professor at Goldsmith's College London
and professor of visual art and knowledge systems in Lund, Sweden.
His research covers cultural translation and differences, textiles,
sonics, and visual art as knowledge production.
The total cost for this intensive, four-week residency program will
be $1,369.80, (CND) plus applicable taxes. Nearly $7500 of additional
in-kind support for each project will be provided by BNMI staff and
the dedicated studio and production facilities at The Banff Centre's
Creative Electronic Environment.
