Collide is one of the central programmes of Arts at CERN, which is being developed together with Barcelona City Council and Hangar for the 2021-2022 biennium.

The Collide prize is an annual artistic call promoted by the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, since 2011, which invites artists or artistic collectives from all over the world to develop as part of a research project located in a residence next to the scientific community of CERN. Barcelona, through the participation of Hangar and the City Council, is the third city to collaborate with the programme after Linz (under the framework of Ars Electronica) and Liverpool (in collaboration with FACT).

In each of the calls, the award grants a three-month residency to the winning artist or collective so that they can expand their research in their own location. For two months, this residency takes place at CERN in Geneva, working in contact with professionals in the fields of particle physics, engineering, information technologies and the laboratory world.

During the third month, the stay takes place at Hangar. In this second phase in Barcelona, the resident artists will have the opportunity to expand, collaborate and share their research with the scientific, artistic and activist community in the local context.

The Collide Prize, from its conception, represents an epistemic challenge, which affects new modes of social transformation based on the hybridisation of art and science.
