Program Description

Residency duration: around 3 weeks (depending on your production plan) Residency dates: June to August 2023 The project "Wild Bits" is an exhibition concept that proposes a temporary art park in the wilderness. The exhibition looks for points of contact between people, technology and nature. The technological art installations consisting of sounds, lights, texts, sculptures or their online counterparts are placed in natural spaces like forests, fields, swamps and lakes. With this open call Maajaam is seeking proposals for installations, interventions or processes to be installed in landscapes spread out around Maajaam that explore the human condition in a contemporary technological society. The artworks should withstand outdoor conditions. We encourage artists to think of solutions that are energy sustainable: use alternative sources (e.g. solar panels) and be as economical as possible.
