The call for proposals for Forecast’s fifth edition is now open! Forecast is an international mentorship program and interdisciplinary network for knowledge transfer that offers artists and creative thinkers the chance to work with accomplished mentors toward bringing their projects to fruition. Forecast transcends neatly defined disciplines and genres to carve out space for the questions on the minds of the next generation of trailblazers. Creative practitioners and cultural producers working in all creative fields anywhere in the world are encouraged to apply with projects that could benefit from the expertise of one of the mentors in this edition, and from that mentor’s unique approach to material and knowledge production.

Forecast selects six different mentors for each edition, all accomplished in their respective fields, who determine the nature and content of every iteration. The mentors in Forecast’s fifth edition are chef Manu Buffara (Brazil), curator Koyo Kouoh (Cameroon), writer and researcher Evgeny Morozov (Belarus), visual artist and theater director Markus Öhrn (Sweden), musician Du Yun (China), and photographer and filmmaker Tobias Zielony (Germany).

Find out more about each mentor’s field of expertise and what he or she is looking for in a potential mentee on our website.

The deadline for applications is March 1, at 11:59pm CET. The selection process is two-tiered. First, the mentors carefully review all proposals and invite three candidates each to workshop with the mentor and present their ideas at the Forecast Forum in Berlin, taking place July 13–19, 2020. At the conclusion of the Forum, each mentor chooses one mentee.

The six mentees will receive a production budget and artist fee, and will have nine months to bring their ideas to fruition. In addition to independent, ongoing exchanges with their mentors, this period also includes a one-on-one work-stay with the mentor at an international partner institution.

The final projects will be presented to the public at the Forecast Festival, taking place April 6–10, 2021. The Forum and the Festival both take place at radialsystem, Berlin.

Forecast can only accept applications submitted in English via the online application form.

OPEN CALL for Artists living in Berlin to join group exhibition “Nebulous”

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Sunday, February 16th at 11:59PM

EXHIBITION DATE: March.27.2020- March.28.2020

The group show at Studio Baustelle will exhibit figurative art that ranges from realistic to conceptual. The theme will explore the nebulous boundaries that separate how people think about and depict the body. The work will reflect the fluid area between our outward appearance and how that can conflict or correspond with our inner psyche.

We are the product of our communities, geographies, gender, sexuality, DNA, history, experiences, trauma, feelings, otherness, sameness, and energy.

Artist to Artist: International Residency Host Members

Share

Call out for Host Membership:

Art Science Exhibits Berlin launches an innovative residency program for professional Visual Artists, Curators, and Art Administrators, which includes stipends for Host Members worldwide.

As more artists enter the international artworld, more and more artists pay out of pocket for residency opportunities. With so many applications, even the best are denied. And the residencies that can offer you support, most often, can’t offer connections to regional artists, curators, or exhibition venues. 

By providing this expanding network for members, and by keeping the money in the pockets of friendly artists, Art Science Exhibits presents the solution.

With Artist to Artist, international Host Art Professionals offer engaging, one-on-one residencies to fellow professional artists - by sharing their home or studio, regional network, and resources. In turn, Host Members will be provided with a stipend from their visiting Guest Artist. Whilst sharing, Host Members likewise gain connections to each of their visitors' networks.

With Artist to Artist, Art Professionals have the possibility to expand their opportunities globally and exponentially. 

About us: 

Art Science Exhibits Berlin has grown from increasing our network of artist interaction and, we believe, so can you. Since 2016 we have provided large-scale exhibitions and leading-edge programs with artists and scientists at Yale University, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, in Winterthur, Switzerland, and at an official Palazzo of the 2019 Venice Biennale. 

At present, we have exhibited the work of artists from:  Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland, Thailand, the UK and the USA.

OPEN CALL: Futureless - QueerFeminist Group Exhibition

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

For the upcoming Futureless group exhibition, taking place between April 1 and 9 at SomoS Berlin, the SomoS curatorial team is calling for ephemeral installations, durational art pieces, performative lectures/projects as well as discourse-based work and other art forms that deal with topics related to queer/feminist* futures, including:

  • The role of imagination, fantasy, fiction and speculation in shaping alternative futures.
  • Digitization, technological and scientific development.
  • Earthly, ecological and environmental precarity.
  • Ecosexuality and the relationships between humans and the rest of nature.

Deadline: January 26, 2020, midnight

Application fee: none

Eligibility: international artists working in any medium

From their political root, queer/feminist identities, ideas and actions offer alternative perspectives on how society can be continuously shaped and reshaped differently. With the capitalist dream of progress fading, the Futureless group exhibition recognises an important history of queer/feminist futurism that generates possibility through imagination; the writing of Samuel R. Delany and Octavia Butler, films such as Lizzy Borden’s Born in Flames, Shu Lea Chang’s Fluido and the cult-classic Rocky Horror Picture Show, as well as the art of Juliana Huxtable and Rebecca Belmore, all come to mind to name just some examples.

The loss of a future once thought by some as great and bright leaves us in a futureless state. Such a state may feel at once empty and ominous, yet also appear as a vast and promising site for speculative fiction and fantasy. In this futureless void, queer/feminist answers become not only increasingly relevant, but also more articulate. What does it mean for queer/feminist thought and art that the future is missing? How can we dream of and interpret the present as seen from the future? 

Artists may respond to some of the following questions:

  • Which mythological, fantastical or other-worldly perspectives or examples are beneficial for life on a precarious planet? 
  • What does a queer/feminist utopia look like? In contrast, what does a queer/feminist dystopia look like?
  • What is the future of gender?
  • How can we foster a queer/feminist ecosystem?
  • To what extent is ecological struggle the struggle for universal emancipation?
  • How may we perform rituals to recognise the loss of the future?
  • What are the connections between queer/feminist perspectives on future and others that are formed out of minority positions or resistance, e.g. Afrofuturism, indigenous futurism, decolonization, Trans Futurism, among others?

Both existing works as well as new works are eligible for participation.

Submissions to the exhibition should include a detailed description of the artwork or project. We will look at any proposal with great interest and an open mind, but are especially eager to include installation based pieces, works that are durational, participative and/or interactive, for example, performances, and other works that take shape over time, works that are built in situ before or during the exhibition, works that create their own environment or that involve building an environment that is the backdrop to a performance as well as works that invoke all these forms and incorporate discourse into them through lecture, text etc.

Selected artists/performers will be invited to participate in a group exhibition at SomoS Art House in Berlin that will take place from 01.04.2020-09.04-2020.

*Please note: Considering the common questions of gender and sexuality, we included both queer and feminist perspectives in this Open Call. We encourage submissions that are both queer and feminist, as well as other submissions that lean towards one term or the other. We aimed to express this through the formulation of queer/feminist throughout the Open Call.

Urban Challenges - Take part in a photography exhibition in Berlin

City:

Eligibility:

As the urban population is growing steadily, cities are increasingly facing new important challenges - let them be social, environmental or economical. Our urban experience keeps on transforming and new questions arise every day. How to share the space? How should we build? Is there enough space for sports, health and culture? Where do people work? What is the role of the public institutions? Which places are left for the communities? How to integrate the digital world and improve mobility? Which are the alternatives to the cars? How can cities become a responsible actor when climate change is concerned? Which sustainable options do we have? How to create connections? If the issues raised are numerous, they may as well open up new perspectives to enhance the quality of life of citizens. Either documenting the reality or imagining future transformations, we would like to discover the work of photographers embracing this topic.

The selected artists will take part in a collective exhibition at the gallery of B-Part in Berlin in February 2020.

Deadline: January 5, 2020

Fantastic Beings: Body Sculpting & Assemblage Workshop

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

In the Fantastic Beings workshop, Spanish multidisciplinary artist Iria Do Castelo will teach you how to build a human-like sculpture using plaster bandages, homemade paper mache, clay and found objects. The workshop is designed to give an opportunity to participants to improve their creative process and explore new paths of sculpture and assemblage together with an established artist.

The workshop is suitable for anyone, artist or not, from 18 and above. All materials will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to bring along curious objects that they may wish to incorporate into their sculptures. Registration is required.

SomoS presents the Fantastic Beings workshop that is held by Iria do Castelo as a way to highlight the imaginative opportunities that are possible when sculpture, assemblage and the body come together. Inspired by Gothic art, eroticism, dreams and the dark depths of the human psyche, in her own work, do Castelo creates perverse and disruptive settings in which sculpture draws on emotion rather than formal rules. What often emerges from do Castelo’s creative process are fantastical creatures that bear resemblance to human figures. With do Castelo as a guide and teacher, participants of the Fantastic Beings workshop will be led to replicate their own bodies, transforming their moulds into new non-human, biomorphic compositions with the aid of assemblage techniques.
The possibilities are infinite.

Fantastic Beings workshop
Saturday-Sunday, December 7-8, 10am-6pm
60 euros for both days, including material (can bring additional objects)
Language : English

The workshop is open to anyone, artist or not, from 18 years and above. Please register by sending an email to somos@somos-arts.org

Deadline December 1st
