In keeping with the focus of Art Collection Deutsche Telekom on contemporary art from Eastern Europe, the new residency, enabled by Deutsche Telekom, will be dedicated to artists from / or who stand in relation to this region, who work at the interface between art, technology and science and who are particularly interested in researching the social impact of technological developments.
