Art meets Science in the Anthropocene

STUDIOTOPIA is an initiative that aims to increase collaborations between cultural and research institutions, academia, innovation centres, creatives and citizens. The initiative consists of eight European cultural institutions: 

Center for Fine Arts (Bozar Lab) and GLUON in Brussels, Ars Electronica in Linz, Cluj Cultural Centre in Cluj, Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art in Gdansk, Onassis Stegi in Athens, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Laboral in Gijon.

STUDIOTOPIA is a residency programme that is designed for artists interested in collaborating with scientists. STUDIOTOPIA encourages renowned and emerging contemporary visual artists to host a scientist or researcher in the independent & inspiring environment of their studios, reversing the usual approach whereby artists are invited to work at R&D departments of universities or companies. It also goes directly towards specific communities to raise their awareness and bring new perspectives on sustainability challenges.

Throughout the duration of this initiative (2019-2022), STUDIOTOPIA will propose a vast programme of activities across the partnering institutions: residencies, exhibitions, pop-up labs, workshops and talks.

STUDIOTOPIA is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
