Collide Copenhagen 2023 / Residency
Deadline May 8, 2023
Copenhagen Contemporary / CERN

CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics in Geneva, and Copenhagen Contemporary (CC) are proud to collaborate in the framework of the Collide residency award. Established in 2012, Collide is the international residency award that brings arts and science together in collaboration with leading cultural institutions in Europe.

Collide is an annual residency programme for artists with distinct interest in science and technology, and with a strong motivation for dialoguing with scientists and engineers from different fields. The goal is to invite artists to immerse themselves in the Laboratory’s communities and to engage in a close dialogue with scientists, engineers, and staff at CERN in Geneva and in the context of Copenhagen Contemporary.

For the first edition and the following annual calls, Arts at CERN and the CC are inviting artists to reflect on the impact of science and research in contemporary culture. Proposal that consider the role of advanced technologies and novel scientific models as major topics in society are welcome. Collide is especially reaching for artistic proposals that reflect on themes such as artificial intelligence, the modelling and analysis of vast datasets, the emergence of quantum technologies, and their interpretation from philosophical and ethical standpoints.

The artists selected for the 2023–2025 editions will be invited to take part in an ambitious exhibition at CC in 2025, investigating technology’s impact on humanity.

Artists from any country in the world are invited to submit an application proposing a project that combines research and production of a new work to develop during a two-months residency. The residency will be split in two periods, the first month at CERN and the second month in Copenhagen. The scope of this proposal will include a research period in both locations, and a posterior development phase to define and produce a new artwork, with the curatorial support of both curatorial teams in Geneva and Copenhagen.

  • Nhu Xuan Hua: Tropism
    Area Books

    Nhu Xuan Hua delved into the power of memories in a piece of work titled Tropism, Consequences of a Displaced Memory. The work gives a face to those tropisms that describe spontaneous and automatic reactions initiated by vivid emotions in response to primarily needs or past events in life. Based on archival pictures from her family, the digital intervention interprets these memories through a new angle, exploring the effect of dissipation generated by time passing and driven by the forces of an inherited memory.

  • Mikel Bastida: Anarene
    Tipi Photo Bookshop

    Anarene is a book that was born from an eight-year photographic project made by Mikel Bastida in the United States. In the spirit of referencing the ghost town in Archer County, Texas, portrayed in Peter Bogdanovich’s film adaptation of Larry McMurtry’s novel The Last Picture Show, the author has traveled the country looking for images and stories that cinema has left behind.

  • Helen Cammock: I Will Keep My Soul

    Convening polyphonous voices from past and present, I Will Keep My Soul is an orchestral layering of photography, historical documents, poetry and interviews, all rooted in the social history, geography and community of New Orleans. In this prismatic artist’s book, UK-based artist Helen Cammock traverses the city, rendering her observations and encounters into reverberant texts and percipient photographic images that tender the city’s invisible histories.

  • Miles Aldridge
    Featured Profile

    Miles Aldridge’s hyperreal women have long been a focal point of his instantly recognizable color-blown images. With a bulging portfolio of more than two decades’ work, he has shot everyone from models of the moment Siri Tollerød and Cara Delevingne, to supermodel iconoclasts, such as ex-wife Kristen McMenamy.

  • Mikiko Hara: Small Myths
    Chose Commune

    Mikiko Hara has her own way of secretly capturing the strangers who cross her path: a young man on the train, a couple holding hands, a little girl playing in a park… Sometimes their eyes meet briefly as she presses the shutter, but Mikiko Hara does not exchange with her subjects. Yet, these portraits reveal something infinitely personal, as if the photographer and her subjects were bound by an invisible pact (more…)

    May 31 – Nov 3, 2024
    Stasys Museum
    Panevėžys, Lithuania

    On this day… Stasys arrives back at his home village, Lepšiai… It all happens in May 2024… That’s when the Stasys Museum opens up to the public, a museum titled after him. This was never predicted – the future from there, a little village, in the house within a disorderly wooden structure, run down with dripping roofs, filled with bellowing, roaring farm animals… No fairy tales could be heard there… But just one hour’s walk away from Lepšiai, the white rectangular building stands proudly in the city centre (more…)
