A fully funded residency of up to three months so artists can further their artistic practice by immersing themselves in the world of particle physics. This award, funded by the City and Canton of Geneva, celebrates Geneva as a consequential meeting point for arts and science throughout history, highlighting its unique role in the founding of CERN back in the 1950s.
Collide Pro Helvetia
In partnership with the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia
If you’re a Swiss artist, this is your opportunity to carry out artistic research in the field of art, science, and technology inspired by the world of particle physics in dialog with CERN’s scientists.
Collide Pro Helvetia Residency Award is a fully funded residency in the laboratory aimed at Swiss artists. Particle physics considers notions of time, space and gravity to understand what constructs the universe while being invisible to the naked eye, and we provide an inspirational place to realize ambitious interactivel artworks.
COLLIDE Geneva and COLLIDE Pro Helvetia yearly.
