ABOUT THE EXHIBITION THEME

Beyond Human Power

The continuous spread of the novel coronavirus and the emotions it has caused have become the most direct and vivid explanation of force majeure, something beyond the control of human power. In most cases, the first thing that people think of is ruthless nature. The virus is an invasion of aliens and yet is not caused by nature alone. Its development involves human economic and social activities. In the end, our bodies will inevitably suffer the most from the things beyond human power. We invite artists worldwide to use their unique artistic creations to make their voices heard in this particular period and context.

Call for contributions to an online contemporary art exhibition

We invite artists from the following countries: Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China’s provinces of Xinjiang, Qinghai and Inner Mongolia countries to contribute to an interdisciplinary online art project on roads and their social, cultural, political and economic impacts.

Topic

Roads – as metaphors of movement and as elements of transport infrastructure. Roads in the context of ongoing social and political change (e.g. that set in motion by the disintegration of the Soviet Union). Roads and colonialism. Their maintenance and decay. The role of human beings in the lives of roads, and the role of roads in human life. Roads as transitory objects: material, social and metaphorical. Roads that were once central and are now peripheral, and vice versa. Roads and spirituality: pilgrimages and shamanic journeys. The cultural meanings of roads. Roads that connect and roads that separate. Stories of people who interact with the road in their daily life. Roads and time; memories of roads. Roads and missed opportunities. Roads and dreams of a better life. Roads as objects of care and love. Neglected and unwanted roads.

We invite you to reflect artistically on      roads: on how they matter      to human and animal life; on the care and work they need in order to persist; how they alter and affect their surroundings; how they decay, transform, disintegrate and bleed into the landscape.

Our aim is to create an online exhibition and space dedicated to roads.

Organization details

The research project ROADWORK (https://roadworkasia.com), based at the Universities of Zurich and Fribourg in Switzerland, is inviting proposals for individual and collective art projects related to the above topic. The projects may be presented via virtual means or any other form of artistic expression possible online. The total grant fund available is 6000 Swiss francs; this figure will be divided between the successful proposals. The amount dedicated to one art project will range from 200 (for individual or small curatorial projects) to 800 Swiss francs (for collective projects or time consuming projects such as multimedia stories). These funds will be granted upon the submission of completed works, unless the material needs expressed in the application state otherwise (advance payment is only possible upon individual agreement).

The decision on the winning works will be taken by a group of international curators, in cooperation with the ROADWORK team.

Expected formats
