Conceived by invited curators, the Web Residencies’ open calls addressed questions such as: What can we learn from machines and how much do we depend on them in our lives and at work? How do new care technologies relate to the crisis in caring for the elderly and sick? With which technical innovations, hacks, or open-source strategies can we counter the causes and effects of climate change? What are today's scientific or technological colonialisms? How could digital infrastructures that promote opinion-forming and political debate look? What role do mobile phones, actioncams, toy drones and social media live streaming play in war, terrorism, hunting, and other forms of subjective violence and their representation?

More than 1,200 artists, coders, designers, and scientists have submitted project proposals for the six thematic calls for 2018/2019. Twenty-five of these ideas were awarded with Web Residencies in which poetic, playful, as well as critical, political, or utopian works were realized.
