Dysfunctionalities in contemporary art | in times of conflict

Open Call for Speakers

Deadline Paper Submission 13 February 2021 12:59

Art as the imprint of humanity but also as a lever of creative energy that feeds the cultural heritage, issues related to Art and Artist's rights will be discussed under the prism and conditions of political tension, investigating the relationship between the artist and the political strategy of a state, the concerns and methods of approach.

The role of political instability and the impact it has on the creation of Art, raise many questions about the values of art, artistic creation and its relationship with the state. The conference, Dysfunctionalities in Contemporary Art, aims to dissect, explore and discuss with the particularities of the role of cultural institutions, public organisations and the cultural policies of a state that shape and impact the life and work of an artist.

The conference is financed by the Cyprus Cultural Services and organized by the Cyprus Chamber of fine arts, is a continuation of the Dysfunctionalities in Contemporary Art program and aspires to be a communication platform activating those mechanisms that will contribute to the development of networking and training as well as to envision creative ways in which to deal with conflictual phenomena.

We are wishing for this conference to be physical but we will be adaptive according to the COVID19 measures.

The selected speakers will receive a €250 stipend

Speakers from abroad will be reimbursed their travel cost up to €300 and will have free accommodation for the night prior to the conference.

If you are an art lover join us to experience the Biennale Larnaca 2020-21. Welcome to the beautiful city of Larnaca!

 

Larnaca Biennale 2020 grapples with limits.
That which is definable inevitably grapples with the question of limits. What is really there is in essence the area it takes up, either tangible or intangible, real or imaginary. Limits change, expand, shift; but they cannot be annulled because then what they define would be annulled too.
In this paradoxical age of utter deconstruction, of a single globalized society, of a single device, a single social model, such notion could sound provocative, perhaps because we often confuse challenging limits with challenging their very existence. The first could be the definition of freedom, the second is a rather superficial version of it. To claim that there are no limits is equivalent to shouting at the top of your lungs to someone standing right in front of you: “To me you do not exist!” But to address someone means to acknowledge they exist.
Creative thinking has always trodden along the border but also, quite often, beyond the limits. The scientist whose vision took him outside the limits of his era; the poet in quest of the impossible; the artist defending to death the unproven – they do not fight to abolish limits; they fight to change them. For humanity, this is the fulcrum of progress.
Are there spaces that do not negotiate their limits? Are there limits in nature or is this a socially constructed notion? Can something exist beyond limits forever or merely for some time? And if yes, at what cost?
In the end, are there any limits?
There are, but they are limitless.

Description of the residency program
The Kammari residency for researchers, writers and artists works through a constant open call. We welcome you to apply at any time with a free form application by email .

Duration of residency
The residency work period is from two weeks to three months.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
All art disciplines are welcome. Our own work in the residency concentrates in combining academic research with disciplines such as performance, film, music and poetry. However we aim to promote and facilitate artistic work and research in all disciplines.

We have a wood workshop with basic hand tools. There are also shared computers for writing, video and visual work.

We provide assistance to the artist in terms of connecting to other institutions and artists on the island. It is also possible to organise shows or performances. The hosts of the residency assist with all practical questions.

Studios/work spaces
The residency has a small studio for performance, dance and music work with basic equipment such as a sound system, mixer, amp, instruments, projector and recording/documentation possibilities. We have another visual art studio for painting and writing.

Accommodation
Accommodation facilities include three private rooms in the residency house.

Rent prices:
– A double bedroom with a rent of 400 Euros per month.
– A double bedrooms with a rent of 350 Euros per month.
– A single room for 250 Euros per month.

The rent is negotiable depending on the project. The rent includes all the basic facilities: shared kitchen and bathroom, internet, electricity and water. Buying food, fire wood and personal necessities is the responsibility of the guests.

The residency and the association administering it are not-for-profit and all income goes to maintaining the house.

Fees and support
The residency is artist-run and we have no external funding at the moment. Thus everyone involved with the residency works voluntarily and we cannot provide the visiting artists and researchers with grants. The residency does not charge any additional artist fees.

Expectations towards the artist
The artists or researchers at the residency are not expected to provide any predetermined results. We happily facilitate research or art work in terms of presentations or exhibitions. We collaborate with an art centre in Limassol that organises discussions, exhibitions and events with renown international guests (neme.org). The residency guests are encouraged to engage with the local and international researchers and artists at these events.

Other conditions
The residency strives to have an ecologically sustainable material basis. Thus the facilities are simple with mostly natural materials, use of toxic chemicals is not possible etc.

There is a small vegetable garden at the residency where the guests can voluntarily participate in and eat from. For buying food there is a vegetable and fruit shop called Fruteria in the village that the residency collaborates with. There are also organic farmers in the village who, seasonally, have vegetables, fruits and eggs to sell.

The residency is open for families and partners of the guests. Let us know if your pets come along so we can agree and arrange it with the other guests. The residency hosts live in the village and are ready to help with any questions.
