International projects

The artists-in-labs program International Residency Exchange projects aim to build up international networks in Art and Science with the goal to establish sustainable and long-term collaborations between scientific and cultural institutions worldwide. 

Our international art-science residencies in science laboratories provide artists with the opportunity to engage with scientists for several months on a global scale. The (cultural) setting and framing as well as the historical traditions are responsible for results in the sciences and in the arts. Therefore the possibility of a transcultural and transdisciplinary dialog and by juxtaposing concepts and procedures of different countries and knowledge cultures, offers a significant room to reflect on ideas and ideologies of the other, the foreign or the unfamiliar, and to explore a range of scientific topics, methods and technologies as well as the site of the laboratory, in renown science laboratories worldwide.


artists-in-labs KAUST-Swiss Residency Exchange 2016

The artists-in-labs KAUST-Swiss Residency Exchange 2016 is a collaboration between the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), Institute for Cultural Studies in the Arts (ICS), the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Thuwal, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology Eawag in Zurich and the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia Zurich and Pro Helvetia, Cairo Office.

The artists-in-labs KAUST-Swiss Residency Exchange will sponsor four residency awards in 2016:
• 2 residencies for a three-month period in scientific research groups at KAUST in Saudi Arabia, and
• 2 residencies for a three-month period in scientific research groups at Eawag in Zurich, Switzerland.


Russian-Swiss Residency Exchange

Claudia Comte (CH) and the Urban Fauna Laboratory collective (RU) were selected by the jury as artists in lab for the Russian-Swiss Residency Exchange 2015!

The Russian-Swiss Residency Exchange is supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia "Swiss Made in Russia"

Swiss artist Claudia Comte will explore the IPAE’s research activities in the reconstruction of past climatic conditions using ultralong tree-ring chronologies, ecological studies of the upper and polar tree-line dynamics in Ekaterinburg. Her artistic investigation will evolve around tensions and forces the wood is submitted to in its natural habitat and in her artistic process with the wood as working material. Claudia will join the scientists on their field trips to the Ural region as well as explore their research in the Laboratory of Dendrochronology.

Russian artists collective Urban Fauna Lab from Moscow will be represented by Anastasia Potemkina. She will explore WSL’s research on invasive pathogens and their effects on the ecosystem. Her artistic work will emerge from the collaboration with the scientists and revolve around their main research topics, while further exploring the Urban Fauna Lab’s ongoing investigations into the social status of animals and plants.

The Russian-Swiss Residency Exchange 2015/2016 is supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia "Swiss made in Russia"

From July-December 2015 Swiss-American artist Mark Boulos worked as an artist-in-lab with the Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience at the Brain Mind Institute at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne EPFL, where he explored the work and research of neuroscientist Olaf Blanke of EPFL and psychiatrist François Ansermet of the University of Geneva.

His artwork explores the visual and audio techniques of Olaf Blanke, and the narrative techniques of François Ansermet, to create new forms of video, cinema, and Virtual Reality inspired by both neuroscience and psychoanalysis.

The National artists-in-labs Residency 2015 was supported by the

The interactions among organisms, including those between host and parasite, pollinator and plant, or invasive and native species, determine the properties and functions of biological systems. These interactions are best characterized using a systems approach that integrates all aspects of the biology, ecology, and evolutionary history of the interacting organisms. The main research objectives of the Institute of Integrative Biology (IBZ) Zurich are to further the understanding of ecological and evolutionary processes that affect interactions between organisms and biological systems and to develop new approaches to address key questions related to infectious diseases.

At the Département de physique nucléaire et corpusculaire (DPNC) of the University of Geneva science takes a particular color. Especially because it is enriched by close collaboration with European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN), its neighbour since more than 50 years, which is one of the largest particle physics laboratory in the world.

At CERN physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter - the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.
