Between Ebb and Flow: Interstitial Spaces 

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Deadline: 3 January 2022

Exhibition: June 2022

Artistic fields Installation, practices of Listening, Outdoor Art, Sculpture, Social Practice, Painting, Visual Arts, Performance, Sound Art, Education, Interdisciplinary

Keywords Port cities, denied travel, interstitial spaces, diaspora, displacement, listening, micro-stories, post-colonialism

This open call welcomes artists and collectives to submit an artwork proposal for an intimate experimental festival that centres the harbour as conceptual framework and main stage. Hidden and fragmented micro-stories will be told along the interwoven paths that run throughout the harbour, that takes back its original meaning of lieu d'exchange, trying to challenge clichés ascribed to harbours as geographic and social milieu. Harbours are enchanted places but at the same time rough ones, a third space for who's leaving and who just came, interconnecting collective memories. Although still described as a crossroad of cultures and diaspora, this topos of a place for welcomes, farewells and mobility tout court has become a pandemic Utopia. Increased measures against migration led to port closures, travel limitations let us re-think the concept of proximity and the unexpected local revealed new exoticisms.   

In this liquid connected reality, it might be advisable to surrender to what pressed the stop button of the hypermobility of our social worlds. The most powerful tool against the constant drive for production at any cost is introspection: stopping and taking stock, becoming aware of the space and time between the productive things that cognitive capitalism has accumulated in a post-pandemic world. Looking back on ecology co-existing with us thrusts environmental issues into the realms of the individual, society, and humankind to examine the hidden scars underneath. 

Rather than the harbour as a symbol of the limitless possibility of direction, inception will be the "denied travel" in the state of suspense between here and there: a loss of compass. The interventions may relate to notions of time, suspension, displacement, diaspora, presence/absence, horror vacui, border closures and system(s) failure, but also community and counter-strategies.

The aim is to display and give voice to those fragmented polyphonic experiences that find in the isolated harbour their natural playground, enabling them to think about common feelings and struggles. The artworks will speak of deterritorialised people as a community to empathically transmit the shared sense of displacement that constitutes contemporary subjectivity. Does the presence gain new meanings through a denied travel? 

Floating in an opaque homogeneity, a rupture and its instability face the emergency to find a new navigation system to reposition ourselves. If we have lost the compass, we could even take advantage of this new perspective and enjoy the imaginative geographies of the mindscapes unfolding before us.

Can you feel nostalgia for a homeland you’ve never been to?                                                       

If the translocal impact of technological changes, social relations and political ideologies have fostered a novel sense of simultaneity and mutuality, do we still feel the need to travel? 

 

Prize summary: 
A honorarium will be provided. Production costs (incl. transport and insurance) and other expenses will be fully or partially supported depending on the scale and feasibility of the project.

8th International Marianne Brandt Award

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Connectedness —
Experiments on a new relationship with nature

The 8th International Marianne Brandt Award 2022 asks artists and designers how that which connects us with other living beings and habitats can be newly discovered and designed. We are looking for projects, images, and texts on cooperative, aesthetic, metaphorical, and poetic exchanging relationships with other organisms and natural existences.

 

How could we conceive and design connecting processes, objects, and atmospheres in this sense? How can we talk, write and tell about our existential connections in poetic and creative ways?

In the 1920s the Chemnitz-born artist and Bauhaus designer Marianne Brandt had written poems, in which she discovered forms of nature that appear like poetic and constructive role models for her shiny and geometric metal designs of “tableware” and “lighting bodies”. The sea appeared 
as a “shimmering round” or the moon as 
a “sculptural sphere”. At the same time, 
she searched for analogies in natural phenomena for her sensations and moods. Brandt found resonance in “sheet lightning” or in “rippling waves”.

What are the approaches to nature that are relevant for artists and designers today? How can we foster, show or celebrate moments that connect us?

Prize summary: 
15.000 € cash prizes, exhibition, catalog

We award 5.000€ in each category - project, photography, text. 60 nominated works will be exhibited at Wirkbau Chemnitz and published in a catalog at Jovis Verlag Berlin. Special prices will be given by special prize donors.

Call for Web Residencies No 17: »Undesired by the Market: Resting!« curated by dgtl fmnsm

Eligibility:

From the dgtl fmnsm chat:
 

»Hey dear!

Wanna hang? Wanna work?«

 

With the 17th Call for Web Residencies by Solitude, curated by Sarah Fartuun Heinze, Andara Shastika, Franziska Goralski and Ulla Heinrich for dgtl fmnsm, artists are invited to experience, explore and enjoy taking a restful break in a utopian space of possibility from an intersectional and queer feminist perspective. Because the radical break – whether in the form of creative freedom in the context of a virtual artist residency or a self-chosen sabbatical – is, above all, one thing: a space of possibility. 

We are interested in what artists and collectives do in their breaks, which aesthetic and emotional practices exist and which ones have yet to be invented. Who can actually take breaks, and what class issues are associated with breaks? What is more feminist than taking a break together, alone, or just because? What if our lives were structured by pleasure, softness and community instead of our deadlines? What happens to us when we close the tabs in our head? What do breaks in the digital world look like? What would we do if we did not make use of every opportunity? What qualities must a break display in order to be more than a mere charging station in the capitalist cycle of exploitation, and is this even possible?

Individual artists as well as groups and collectives are invited to adopt the space of the radical pause, shaping it as they see fit. Go on vacation, complete an aesthetic project that has long been eating up your breaks, or design your own break-free utopia: because perhaps breaks have become superfluous in our contemporary utopian spaces. Who knows?

 

Call team

The collective dgtl fmnsm has been examining what virtual potential lies in the contemporary performing arts and how a theater of the future might look in digitalized societies in hybrid and interdisciplinary formats, both online and offline, since 2016. The network-based collective works in fluid constellations within the context of festivals and digital artist residencies, as advisors for online formats and their policies and mentors for virtual aesthetic practices. Here, the focus is placed on the various forms taken by emancipatory and collective collaboration in a hypercapitalist world, and which critical connections we need in order to avoid exploiting one another more and more.

Sarah Fartuun Heinze was born in Marka (Somalia) in 1989, is Swabian, lives in Cottbus and works as a multidisciplinary freelance artist and cultural educator from a queer feminist, intersectional perspective at the interface of theater, games, music and empowerment. She sees herself as an aesthetic researcher and is a member of the Creative Gaming initiative, a freelance author and part of the New German Media Makers. What’s more, Sarah Fartuun Heinze likes to play games. One of her favorites is »Zelda: Ocarina of Time«, probably because the key to most of the puzzles lies in the music. And, as is so often the case, it is equally far from screens and theater stages.

Andara Shastika or Shasti (born in Jakarta in 1992 – now based in Kassel) is an artist and organizer who embraces multi-disciplinary/directional practices and areas of curiosity. As a visual artist, Shasti works with performance and digital media on subjects such as language, revenge, curses, demonic voices, haunting and ghosts. As an organiser at the interface of art and activism, she is active in multiple Kassel-based intersectional queer feminist and BPoC-led collaborative contexts, including the livestream platform TERRARISTA TV, the BPoC artists’ initiative Cura Han Hati, and the recent first ever BPoC Festival. She is currently employed as an artistic assistant to Prof. Dr. Swantje Lichtenstein and Prof. Maria Schleiner, working on the research project »ComArts« at the University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf. Shasti is also a vocalist with the hardcore band ORANG.

Franziska Goralski (born in Radebeul in 1992) studied fine arts in Dresden until 2017, is founder of the Department for Potentiality to Act and works with food & intellectual concepts. Her conceptual approaches constitute a cross-media experience. She collaborates with Anna Erdmann as the duo »die Blaue Distanz« on queer themes and low-hierarchy spatial concepts.  After an artistic research stay in Los Angeles funded by the DAAD, she consolidated her interest in fairer models of future coexistence at the Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam in the Master’s program »The Commoner’s Society«. Since then, the Department for Potentiality to Act has been investigating practices – i.e. active practices – on the topic of commons.

Ulla Heinrich (born in Dresden in 1987) is a cultural mediator, curator and cultural manager (MA) who works in communication. From 2015-2018, she worked at HELLERAU – European Centre for the Arts as Head of Digital Communication, Assistant to the Artistic Director and Head of Special Projects. Ulla Heinrich has been organizing and executing projects and workshops on the topic of digitality and gender for teenagers, young adults and educational professionals for over a decade. A feminist activist, Heinrich gives lectures on the topic and organizes free educational events with her Dresden-based group böse&gemein. She is the initiator, curator and collective member of dgtl fmnsm and has been the CEO of Missy Magazine since May 2019.
