Hybrid Space offer an experimental field for interdisciplinary exploration of digital possibilities in analog space – focus on movement, performance.

Where: Linz, Austria

When: July/August 2022

Deadline for applications: 28.02.2022

The Project:

Hybrid Space is a technical resource and above all a place, an experimental field, for interdisciplinary exploration of digital possibilities in analog space with a focus on dance, movement and performance. Multiple cameras, software and hardware enable live broadcasts at a technically flawless level.

There will be 3 residencies for professional artists where usage scenarios will be developed and hybrid art making will be brought into focus.

Suggested thematic areas and issues in the artistic process:

_parallel realities
How can hybrid space illustrate the coexistence of different perceptual realities and interact with digital as well as analog presence per se? The question focuses on a possible play with technology, visualization, abstraction.

_Queens and Kings of Repetition
How can hybrid art be exactly repeatable, especially in the field of live art, actionism, performance – what sense does the uniqueness of happenings make? The question focuses on a performative elaboration with the approach of the ephemeral, the poetics of the unstorability of experiences despite storage, the pros and cons.

_Lost in Translation / international collaborations
How can hybrid art connect places? Here, a common language is sought with international partners and implemented in an art project. A location as well as the local work can be made visible supra-regionally.
