The Collegium Helveticum of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich
awards a

supported by the 'Zuger Kulturstiftung Landis & Gyr'

for an artist from Middle or Eastern Europe who has completed graduate 
studies in multimedia arts
and/or has practical experience in the area of feature and documentary film.
The fellowship covers a six-month stay at the Collegium Helveticum from mid 
October 2002 till mid April 2003.

The Collegium Helveticum is an academic institution for the dialogue 
between the sciences and between science, literature and the arts. It 
offers a one-year graduate programme for 8 - 10 younger researchers from 
the sciences as well as the humanities and invites senior academic guests 
for longer periods. The Collegium Helveticum organises seminars, workshops 
and symposia on issues involving a transdisciplinary perspective and seeks 
to include the public context actively in its work.

The artist-in-residence is expected to participate in the intellectual and 
social life of the Collegium Helveticum. This includes communication about 
artistic processes and an interest in the diverse material and discussions 
at the collegium; a command of German and/or English is essential.

During the academic year 2002/2003 the Collegium will focus on the topics 
of narrativity and narrative structures in science and art. The artist in 
residence is supposed to develop a project relating to these areas of 
investigation in collaboration with the collegiates and scientific staff of 
the collegium.

The fellowship covers a fixed budget for travel and living expenses during 
the stay in Zurich. Working space, technical facilities (digital video 
equipment) and material will be provided.

Artists interested should submit their application consisting of their 
curriculum vitae, a short outline of their motivation and expectations and 
how they intend to respond to the specific situation and focus described 
above as well as a documentation of their work (e.g. videos (no 
Betaformats), DVDs, publications, catalogues or other material) and two 
letters of recommendation before
