Program Description

The INHABIT Artist-in-Residence Program of the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics invites artists from various disciplines to collaborate with our team of scientists and researchers. The integration of artistic thinking and knowledge as reflective practices in their own right is an important dimension of the Institute’s mission. For this the presence of art and the inspiration and challenge of artistic practice are essential. The interaction between these different perspectives creates a productive space for artists and scientists to collaborate in. For this reason, INHABIT invites artists to spend four months creating new work, or further developing an existing project, in a scientific research environment. Openness to the mission of the Institute and interest and readiness to work together with individual researchers or research groups are naturally preconditions. During the residency, the Institute will provide space, resources.
