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.

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

Theme:

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

REAKTOR Potenziale

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The REAKTOR’s cross-disciplinary programme features works that are imbued with the spirit of the times. Indeed, what is still considered experimental today may well one day be perceived as timelessly permanent. That is particularly true of contemporary art. The REAKTOR’s call for concepts is designed to seek out that very potential in the visual arts, hence the title Potenziale. Particular emphasis is to be placed on space-defining art for the REAKTOR’s architectural core, i.e. its main hall.

Selection criteria:

  • Art experience | The Open Call is looking for works that address the topic of reason and emotion.
  • A balance between conceptual depth and material precision | Previously completed works featured in the portfolio will be taken into consideration when assessing the submission.
  • Preference will be given to objects and/or concepts that make full use of the main hall’s sizeable volume.
  • Site specificity | Optionally a dialogue is to be sought with the genius loci (in terms of architecture and/or content).
  • Feasibility | Budget, public safety
Prizes Details: 

The chosen artists will be invited to flesh out and implement their submitted concept as part of a 1-2 week’s residency in July 2020 and then showcase it to the public as part of an exhibition.

The application is a single-stage process. A description, sketches, and an enclosed portfolio of earlier works are sufficient. The REAKTOR team will be on hand to assist with the finalisation and support the implementation. A budget of up to EUR 3,500.00 is available for the exhibition production, together with practical assistance from the REAKTOR’s technical team.

“Statements 2020” — Open call for performative events

Eligibility:

“Statements 2020” — Open call for performative events

Kunstraum Lakeside invites artists and cultural practitioners to participate in the 2020 program by submitting their own “Statement.” We are looking for performative pieces that relate to the annual topic while experimenting with modes of representation in the visual arts in the context of an institution at the interface between art, science, and technology. These performative pieces will take the form of one-day events. The goal for the contributions is to open up Kunstraum Lakeside more than ever before to participation by local and international artists. A total of four “statements” will be presented in 2020.

Kunstraum Lakeside
Kunstraum Lakeside devotes itself each year to a specific theme derived from its special standing as an institution for exhibition, performance, and discourse. The Kunstraum’s integration into a Science and Technology Park, and the linking of its events to the semester program at the University of Klagenfurt, raise questions about how artists today interact with the fundamentals, possibilities, and limits of current knowledge production. Under the curatorial guidance of Franz Thalmair, the planned program will focus on areas of endeavor that can be subsumed under the term “artistic research.” Artistic research, like art in general, allows us to gain aesthetic experience. In addition, however, it also offers artists an opportunity within their respective art practice—i.e., using their own media, formats, and modes of representation—to contemplate the framework conditions that govern their activities. Embedded in social, historical, and cultural interpretation contexts, artistic research therefore enables us to respond to the constantly changing realities of our society.

Annual topic
The 2020 year of programs at Kunstraum Lakeside is devoted to the concept of “format.” While the fields of inquiry for the previous two years, artistic research and the artistic process, had the potential to emancipate themselves from the artwork and become an independent form, and in turn a work of art in their own right, format as a working hypothesis is marshalled against the notion of fixed content. “Formats are nodal connections and differential fields; they channel an unpredictable array of ephemeral currents and charges. They are configurations of force rather than discrete objects. In short, formats establish a pattern of links or connections. […] what now matters most is not the production of new content but its retrieval in intelligible patterns through acts of reframing, capturing, reiterating, and documenting.”* The 2020 program year will hence examine format as an artistic and curatorial method as well as a nodal configuration. Format in this sense is a structure within which artistic fields of action, research processes, investigations, media, and not least works of art enter into a spatial relationship with one another. The concept of “format” involves fabrics and webs, entanglements and configurations, as well as the network as a horizon and carrier of meaning.
