Obsessions - Take part in a photography exhibition in Berlin!

Share

Country:

City:

The selected artists will take part in a collective exhibition at the gallery « Tête » in Berlin in July 2021.

 

Theme: OBSESSIONS

In their creative practice, many artists gravitate towards certain ideas that are intruding on their mind and to which they keep on returning over and over again - some forms of obsessions that drive them to create. The extraordinary perseverance and the willingness to take risks that arise from them are often the driving force that feeds artists’ productivity, allowing them to grow in their practice and deliver exceptional outcomes while expanding their singular universe.

Where is the line between returning to a theme or an idea over and over again and an obsessive behavior? Do artists nurture a pathological obsession with their creations, or is it on the contrary the necessary force that will help them persevering despite all the obstacles they will encounter along the way, allowing them to reach a certain form of greatness? 

What kind of obsession drives you in your quest for images? What does it reveal about yourself and how does your photographic practice help you grow, both artistically and personally? Does it bring clarity to your deepest interrogations or have any kind of therapeutic function, for yourself or for the people involved in your projects? Does the fact of diving into the obsessions of your inner world help you existing or resisting in an anxious context like the one we are facing now?

All approaches to the topic are welcome, we are looking forward to discovering the ideas that are invading your mind!

Application deadline: 13th of May, 2021

»TRANSITIONS« – MULTIMEDIA ART EXHIBITION

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

 

The Leo Baeck Foundation’s arts and culture programme DAGESH. Jüdische Kunst im Kontext (Jewish Art in Context) in cooperation with the global network for Jewish culture, Asylum Arts cordially invite Jewish artists from across Europe and the Americas to participate in a multimedia arts exhibition »TRANSITIONS« that will premier in Berlin on June 30th, 2021.

»TRANSITIONS« seeks to create a new Jewish visibility that transcends borders in a European and transatlantic exchange. Via video and sound art, text composition, and other forms of visual and digital arts, selected artists will showcase their experience and understanding of solidarity and resistance through aesthetics and artistic practice from a shared and yet diverse contemporary Jewish perspective.

The concept of »TRANSITIONS« describes a liminal space, a threshold condition in which society currently finds itself, both socially and politically. A “betwixt and between” state, where the usual order of things is disrupted and new potentials and limits can be challenged and explored. With »TRANSITIONS« we seek to aesthetically explore ways to create newness founded on the very loss and (transgenerational) trauma of the original places. Speaking from a multiplicity of situated Jewish positions, the art pieces in the exhibition will display the artists’ engagement with political events, discourses and movements that impact and mobilise them in their specific context.

In appreciation of elements of otherness as well as forms of commonality, where can art be a means for solidarity and resistance to push for social change?

How can conflicts and generational gaps within Jewish communities be artistically addressed to transition to a paradigm shift?

What political and societal challenges, realities, and possibilities move Jewish artists within their specific geographic and social contexts? How can solidarity with one another and for one another be artistically expressed with other groups and struggles?

The multimedia exhibition will be part of a three-day Festival of Contemporary Jewish Art running under the same theme. The international festival connects artists with one another, encourages coalitions and contributes to shaping a creative, academic, and societal transition through the Art of Resistance (“Wehrhafte Kunst”). »TRANSITIONS« will subsequently exhibit in a number of European countries, such as Poland, Hungary, Netherlands, Greece, UK, and Austria (dates and places tbd).

Submission deadline is on Tuesday, April 13th 2021 at 12 PM (CET).

CALL FOR ARTISTS: EXPRESSIONISM

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

DAILE GALERIE is now inviting visual expressionist artists working with paint on canvas, mixed media on canvas, or fine art paper to consider for our second virtual exhibition of the year, based on expressionism. The exhibition will be curated by Adila Ben and Rodshir Dailë. We are open to all subject matter and points of inspiration.

Expressionism is a modernist movement, initially in poetry and painting, originating in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. Its typical trait is to present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas. Expressionism is a complex and vast term that has meant different things at different times. The term is so elastic that it can accommodate artists ranging from Vincent van Gogh to Egon Schiele and Wassily Kandinsky.

Dailë Galerie is a progressive contemporary + modern art gallery, and project space, envisioned by artist and art director Rodshir Daile. The collective specializes in physical and digital immersive exhibition experiences. Curating exhibitions and special projects from various art collectives, and international artists. Dailë Galerie pledged to donate percentages from sales of our artist’s collections and the GALE®IE store to local and global charities.
