IN*AUDIBLE & NON*VISUAL

OPEN CALL

FOR ARTISTS OF ALL FIELDS, MUSICIANS & CROSS-DISCIPLINARY PRACTICES

 

Improper Walls calls for applications on the topic IN*AUDIBLE & NON*VISUAL, which will be examined in an exhibition, performances and workshops. All mediums and formats, scales and visions are welcome, especially AV installations and performances. The exhibition will take place at Improper Walls’ exhibition space, as well as in partner locations and public spaces. 

 

The aim of this project is to illuminate all aspects of soundwaves, across all possibilities, from warfare to sound art, from noise pollution to scientific use, from communication to music. IMPROPER WALLS aims to generate attention in order to give the audience food for thought at precisely this intersection of arts and sciences, and to make sound waves through unusual practices perceptible as a sensory experience.

 

We already encounter the power of sounds since ancient civilizations. The use of infrasound weapons has been discussed since the 1960s, and are currently part of standardized military and crowd control equipment worldwide. The scope of this highly political issue affects environmental and climate protection as well as basic human rights.

On the other hand groundbreaking achievements in medical research and therapy have been made possible through the use of infra and ultrasound waves. Music and sound art are undisputed highlights of human culture.  The open call aims to embrace multiple perspectives and approaches.

Statements — Open Call 2021

Kunstraum Lakeside invites artists and cultural practitioners to participate in its 2021 program with their own “Statement”. We are in search of performative formats that relate to the Kunstraum’s annual topic and experiment with modes of representation in the visual arts, in the context of an institution at the interface between art, science, and technology.

 

Kunstraum Lakeside

Kunstraum Lakeside focuses on one topic each year, which evolves from the local and institutional particulars of the exhibition, performance, and discourse space itself. Its association with a science and technology park and the correlations between the exhibition contents and the semester program at the University of Klagenfurt prompt questions about the role of artists in current knowledge production. Curated by Franz Thalmair and Gudrun Ratzinger, the program concentrates on fields of action encompassed under the term “artistic research”. Artistic research is conceived as a field that, in addition to just an aesthetic experience, enables one to reflect upon the conditions of his/her activities within artistic practice, while representing something in the artistic knowledge production process with the specific means of art. In essence, the Kunstraum Lakeside exhibition program tests whether the model of artistic research can be employed productively in a discussion process, which tackles fundamental issues in contemporary society.

Annual topic: “Future Perfect”

“I think the real winner in this transaction will have been women, on both sides. Let this remain a conjecture for the future anterior, to be opened up, again and again.”
(Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak)

Archeology of the future or a prospective past? Future II, or, as this tense is also called: future perfect is a paradoxical grammatical construction. Those who use this tense to make a statement about the world create facts that do not exist yet. They describe the completion of an action in the future from a past perspective. This “will have done” downright runs past itself. However, future perfect is always highly uncertain. The linear progression of current conditions is one of the driving forces behind economic and technological developments. At the same time, there is a lack of visions for a better tomorrow, overshadowed by the desire to return to a better yesterday, which in fact never really existed.

With its annual program Future Perfect, Kunstraum Lakeside draws upon the program of Future I, which was conceived exactly 10 years ago. The curators at the time stated that “grand concepts of the future command little political or media prominence, while engagement with utopias and radical social blueprints do however constitute an important theme for contemporary art and theory”. Little has changed a decade later. In light of the tangible implications of global warming and the erosion of familiar (geo)political orders, the situation has become even more critical: The future itself—as a horizon for actions and decisions—seems to have gone lost.

Hence, the annual program 2021 at Kunstraum Lakeside will be centered around artistic explorations into what will perhaps have been. It is about how future can be created with artistic means—very concretely in the here and now. Parallel to future solutions, which are being elaborated at Lakeside Science and Technology Park on a daily basis and a variety of levels, the artists speculatively intervene in a future that leaves behind everything taken as a given.

Dates

Three production days are available for the realization of each “Statement”. These three days include both setup and dismantling at Kunstraum Lakeside. The Kunstraum will be open to the public on one of the three days. Please choose the best two dates for you from those available as listed below:

– Statement #13: May 6, 2021 (production dates, May 5 – 7 2021)
– Statement #14: July 1, 2021 (production dates, June 30 – July 2, 2021)
– Statement #15: January 13, 2022 (production dates, January 12 – 14, 2022)
– Statement #16: January 20, 2022 (production dates, January 19 – 21, 2022)

Queer Body Horror

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Deriving from the idea of Judith Butler's unfulfilled promise of writing about “the place of sharp machines” and “the technology of the knife in debates about intersexuality and transsexuality alike,” the publication "Queer Body Horror" aims to "force an encounter with the real of the biological body and the difference it introduces into the world, the real of the sexed body, that exceeds the being of the phenomenological lived body and the discursive body, while somehow still being intertwined with these other two bodies...". To "force encounters with real and nonhuman objects and actors that cannot be reduced to correlates of human thought, language, perception, or use but that have to be approached in their own autonomous being to properly be thought": a horrifying thought, so to say. The publication argues and explores the validity of the hypothesis that there is neither Object-oriented Ontology nor Speculative Realism without Queer Theory. As such, the idea of 'Queer Body Horror' that Throne Room would love to see you explore doesn't necessarily describe the state of a body, but rather deals with the conditions it faces. It reflects on the method according to which queer space is being created in normative systems, what performative practices a queer body can and needs to adhere to in order to function therein, or to dream up a utopian or nightmarish scenario about queer bodies and "sharp machines".

Open Call for Poster Design

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

For this year's festival edition, we are looking for a poster that creatively approaches the diverse topics related to human rights.

The design should work both as a poster and in an adapted form as a sticker and folding flyer.

It is important to us that the poster design does not fall back on the clichéd or stereotyped images and representations which are often reproduced in the human rights context. It should not be an explicit treatise or representation of human rights, in which prejudices, dualisms or power differences are being reproduced, but rather a sensitive approach to this complex topic.

“Moving away from static and fixed points of reference towards multiple spaces of meaning. Spaces between fixed categories, between the here and there, between self-determination and foreign attribution, between longing and belonging. A kaleidoscope – a diverse, fluid space of innumerable possibilities and overlaps; a reflection on movement and change, allowing ambivalence and contrast.”

These words can serve as an impetus – yet the room for interpretation can remain wide, enabling countless possibilities for creative processes and creations. There is no static guideline or direction which the artist needs to adhere to!

 

Formal Requirements:

There are no technical and stylistic requirements for the poster. However, this human world reserves the right to adapt the poster design to various types of print - in consultation and agreement with the artist.

The festival logo and all relevant information (locations, homepage, logos) must be visible in the final version of the poster and can be included in the submitted version. The logo can be downloaded on the festival’s homepage.

The poster is intended to represent the festival's identity to public and will be published in the form of various printed materials and on the internet.

A jury consisting of artists, filmmakers and this human world festival directors will choose the winning design.

Since the financial situation of the festival has changed, we have decided to increase the remuneration of the competition.

1st place: 800 €

2nd place: 300 €

3rd place: 300 €

 

Conditions of participation and guidelines:

Technical requirements:

Resolution: min. 300dpi

Submissions are only accepted as PDF.

Prize money 1st prize: 800 Euro

Legal statement:

The following legal declaration must be enclosed with each submission;

this human world may use the poster design I submitted free of charge for festival-related (advertising) purposes, as well as on social media and on video platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo in connection with this human world. There is no exclusive transfer of usage rights to this human world. Image rights have been clarified by the submitter and rest with the author of the design. Any claims for damages by third parties will be forwarded to the submitter.

With the poster’s submission, each submitter agrees to the above conditions.

Motion Design/Animation/Augmented Reality Open Call - City of Vienna, A1 Telekom Austria, Azoomee London

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Brief introduction:

*PAID OPPORTUNITY*. The educational media company, Azoomee, is partnering with Stadt Wien (city of Vienna) and the leading mobile network operator in Austria, A1, to promote the new installation of 5G. With the help of local artists, Azoomee's aim is to create an inspiring and exciting augmented reality experience app for children (age 5-10) as they are guided by a tour guide through Vienna's Town Hall. Its rooms will hold secret worlds to find and explore through provided mobile phone screens and each room will showcase the designs of one local artist or collective. The app will take the children on a journey of imagination to accompany the tour, with an emphasis on engaging story-telling and imaginative 2D and 3D animated injections to the grand rooms of the building. 

Description:

London based educational media distributor Azoomee has partnered with the city of Vienna and the Austrian Telecom provider A1 to promote the new installation of 5G in the city. The aim of the project is to provide an augmented reality application for children on provided mobile phones which will be used as an extension to an already existing tour of the Town Hall, given by tour guides. The children will be handed a mobile phone at the beginning of the tour. The tour guide will introduce each room with fun facts and stories, after which the children will be given the opportunity to use the phones to search the room for any ‘hidden’ augmented reality features.

The animations should either enhance existing features of the room to accompany the story given by the tour guide, or tell their own imaginative stories. The artist(s) should bring flair and excitement into the building's rooms with their animations. Creatures, hidden rooms, trap doors, fantastical environments and landscapes are all very welcome. 

Each selected artist(s) will be given a budget of around €1500 - €2000 to work with, and will have a 4-week timeframe within which to produce this experience. Their work will be showcased for a period of 6 months from September 14th, and will be the first use of augmented reality at the cross section between public art and educational entertainment worldwide featuring area target technology.

3D animations can be done via all programs with the possibility of export to Unity, e.g. Maya, Blender, C4D, Max, etc

2D animations ideally made in Spine. 

Prizes Details: 

Selected artists will be paid from 1500 Euros for their work.

4 subnetAIR CALLS in September 2020 at Schmiede Hallein

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

This year we, subnet and Schmiede, can offer four subnetAIR units (€ 1,500 each) in the period from September 1 to October 5, 2020 in Hallein. SchmiedeParticipation is a prerequisite.

The year 2020 is not what it seemed, we are adapting. Promised subnetAIRs 2020 had to be postponed to 2021. The current situation makes travel unpredictable and prevents the usual close collaboration with the researchers at the Center for HCI. That is why subnet 2020 will break new ground. We are cooperating with Schmiede Hallein and will work in the Saline on Pernerinsel in Hallein, instead of in Salzburg. The Center for HCI is at our side as far as possible with advice, action and technology. The Saline will be available as a work studio from September 1st to October 5th. The exact room layout will take place in consultation and taking into account the developing realities of Schmiede.

Schmiede20: Pferde / Horses takes place from September 16 to 25. SchmiedeApplication is a prerequisite. The application is already online. Reference to subnetAIR submission in the SchmiedeApplication makes sense.

Key data:
# 4 x € 1,500 for at least 3 weeks in Hallein
# Possible period: September 1st to October 5th
# Work room in the saline
# Schmiede20: Pferde / Horses September 16-25
# The center for HCI is optionally available with know-how for projects with a focus on physical computing, hardware hacking and tinkering.
# Travel, accommodation and meals are to be carried autonomously.

Procedure:
# The application should not be longer than three pages and should consist of a concept, curriculum vitae and references.
# An independent jury selects and awards.
# The residency begins with a public meeting (meet the artist, online) and ends with a presentation and documentation of the results.
# The subnetAIR fee is paid 50% at the beginning and 50% after documentation.

Expectation:  Process documentation & work that can be exhibited

Objective:
The subnetAIR program actively promotes artists and makes them public. subnetAIR counteracts the bottleneck in production and presentation rooms and lowers barriers in favor of realizing sound project ideas by providing infrastructure and know-how in our field of activity.

Place: Saline Pernerinsel // Smithy Hallein // Smithy in 5:20

Application deadline: June 20, 2020
