Artist in Residence | Bioprocess Laboratory and Biofaction, Switzerland and Austria

biofactionDeadline: 22 December

The Bioprocess Laboratory (BPL), ETH Zürich in Basel, Switzerland – in collaboration with Biofaction, Vienna, Austria – is inviting applications for a four to six week long artist in residency during 2017.

As an artist in residence, you will actively engage with scientists working on a synthetic biology related project with focus on the design of antibiotics. The organisers welcome international applications from artists, designers, biohackers, or other cultural practitioners who want to carry out artistic work with biological media.

This residency program is established:

  • to explore arts or alternative cultural practices’ potential with regards to the visions, challenges, philosophical, aesthetic, and ethical aspects of synthetic biology;
  • to add a complementary outside-the-box perspective to synthetic biology, its societal ramifications and cultural aspects;
  • to help envision the potential long-term changes synthetic biologymight bring to society

The stipend of max. €7000 is provided by the FP7 EU research project SYNPEPTIDE and executed by the Bioprocess Laboratory (ETH Zürich in Basel, Switzerland) and Biofaction (Vienna, Austria). It covers travel and local expenses, a living allowance as well as (partial) support for the production and showcasing of the artistic prototype or finished work.
