Open Call - Residency @ Multimedia Centre KIBLA, Maribor, Slovenia – October 2013
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Multimedia Centre KIBLA offers a residential program
An art residency in Maribor in Slovenia is an opportunity for artists, curators and theorists of Europe who wish to explore their practice in a interdisciplinary field combining art, science and technologies – aimed at actualising culture phenomena which are emergent when art, science and public awareness are interconnected.
The invitation is targeting artists/cultural workers/theorists to explore science and technology researching combining creative forms of artistic experimentation and construction. A residency of three weeks of researching, working and exploring will be finalised with a result presented at the festival KIBLIX 2013 – leading to discussing, listening and sharing ideas and findings.

But what happens when this wildness, this naturalness, begins to knowingly transform, changing technology and biotechnology? A plurality of forms will happen, but in
