Description or summary of the proposed project
The Bit Explorers Research Team operating at the University of Silesia in Katowice is looking for partners to submit an application for a project in the field of experimental media art. We plan to submit the application in the call for proposals for the Creative Europe program in the area of European Cooperation Projects by March 31, 2022.
The main goal of the project is to implement a series of artistic works on the field of art and science, containing an element of innovation. We want to use modern forms of expression, such as: generative art, mixed media, digital art, robotic art, bio art, experimental interface or others, indicated by the partner.
The partner institution will be responsible for selecting a group of artists who will perform a work in the field of experimental media art. Our project involves the cooperation of at least 3 institutions, each of which will be responsible for:
- The overall production of the work (involvement of artists <1-6 people>, financing of the work, organizational issues related to the implementation of the work, promotion).
- Organizing, in your country, a meeting for all artists participating in the project.
- Organizing, in your country, an exhibition of works created as part of the task.
- Participating in exhibitions and meetings organized by other partners.
