The European Alliance of Academies is awarding ten virtual residencies to artists for participation in the project “Ignorance is Strength? Artistic Expression and Biopower in the Post/Pandemic Age”. The selection was preceded by a call of projects on the topic of biopolitics, exploring the relation between governments and their citizens, especially in the context of the (post)pandemic crisis.

The virtual residencies will take place from December 2021 until April 2022 and are endowed with EUR 5,000 each. During this period, the artists will create new works that will be shown online on the digital platform LOOM – Interweaving the Arts in Europe. Within the next weeks we will do portraits of the artists on our website to introduce them in more detail.

The selected artists and their projects are:

Željko Beljan & Rebecca Merlić
