Artistic Research Residency

The call for applications has been postponed until the begining of 2020

IRCAM's Artistic Research Residency Program offers artists of all disciplines the opportunity to collaborate with one or more IRCAM research teams as part of a residency that can be extended in a partner institution: the Zentrum für Kunst und Medien (ZKM) at Karlsruhe (Germany), or the Société des arts technologiques (SAT) at Montreal (Canada).

The benefits of residence are many: offer a time for reflection on its practice, work with researchers to develop an new artistic research path together, develop or perfect an innovative creative tool, conduct experimental artistic research, produce the prototype of an artefact, compose the sketch of a piece, a performance, test a configuration, an innovative technical set-up like a 360-degree immersive audio / video device such as the SAT Satosphère or the ZKM's Klangdom.

An international panel of experts, including the leaders of the expected host project-teams, will evaluate each proposal. The evaluation is based on the originality of the project and its innovative character, collaborative aspects, experience and ability to undertake the proposed project.

At the end of the final selection by an international jury, the laureates of the 2020-2021 Residency Program will be announced at the forum workshops in Paris on March 2020.

Each laureate will be granted a residence at Ircam, within the expected host project-team, possibly followed by a period of co-residence, for a determined total period (between 2 weeks and six months), spanning from April 2020 to December 2021. Each winner will receive the equivalent of 1200 euros per month to cover his expenses.
