Casa degli Artisti, Milan
23 January 2022
The 12° Atelier is a virtual atelier born in 2020 from the collaboration between Casa degli Artisti and the ERC Advanced Grant project “AN-ICON. An-Iconology: History, Theory, and Practices of Environmental Images” (funded by the European Research Council (ERC) within the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme of the European Union) coordinated by Prof. Andrea Pinotti, at the Department of Philosophy “Piero Martinetti” of the State University of Milan.
RESIDENCIES CURATED BY AN-ICON
From 2021, the 12° Atelier, in addition to the eleven ateliers physically present in Casa degli Artisti, will host a programme of artistic residencies produced by AN-ICON and curated by Elisabetta Modena and Sofia Pirandello.
The AN-ICON residencies are aimed at Italian and international artists who want to create new works of art in virtual, augmented and mixed reality. The artists selected through a public call for applications are invited to reflect on the relationship between concrete physical space and virtual space, exploring the perceptive and agentive possibilities generated by new technologies. The artists’ work is also documented in a series of scientific publications and presented in a series of seminars and conferences open to the public.
