V2 is looking for art projects that fit one of the Lab’s three areas of focus: wearable technology, augmented reality and ecology but we are also open to proposals within your personal field of interest. Your project should be conceptually sound and outline a concrete, realistic plan. Your proposal’s chance of being selected will be directly proportional to its quality.

Each selected artist participates in an intense working period during July and August, in which he or she develops a project from concept to artwork, ready for presentation at a public event. We schedule the residencies to overlap as much as possible so that we can foster an active working atmosphere in the Lab and stimulate interaction between artists. The Summer Sessions will conclude with Test_Lab presentations in Rotterdam and within an international festival context.

Are you an ambitious, early-career artist with an interesting idea for a project? Then send us your plan by April 15, 2012. To apply, submit a video presentation of maximum three minutes in which you briefly explain your project, the support you expect to need from the Lab, and why we should choose you to take part in the Summer Sessions.

We have a budget to make it happen.
