Balkans Today. Photography Open Call | 3rd BCK Film Symposium

Share

Country:

City:

For its 3rd edition, Balkan Can Kino Film Symposium creates a new sector dedicated exclusively to photography! We are pleased to announce the launch of  an open call for photography projects that will be shown in a pop-up exhibition and in curated projections in different locations in Exarchia neighbourhood in Athens, Greece during October 9th-18th, 2020. 

We invite emerging and established photographers and artists of any age and geographic location to submit lens-based works in a form of photographic series (12 pictures max.) exploring the theme of the open call:  Balkans Today. The present of a wounded landscape.

Aiming to foster connections between the Balkan countries on a contemporary cultural level, we are looking for works that reflect – beyond stereotypes – on the present of the wider Balkan area and its history. We are interested in highlighting the contradictory elements that co-exist in this mountainous region at the southeastern end of the European continent, where ancient ways of life get interrupted by modern day conflicts, where the last wild rivers of Europe are becoming the newest tourist spots and the focal point of growing economic interests, where the communist heritage is turning into capitalist speculation, where life gets re-invented everyday.

SUBMISSIONS:

7-12 images (jpg, 4000px long side, 300dpi, rgb – name your files as SURNAME-name_01.jpg)

Project statement (150 words – name your file as SURNAME-name_statement.pdf)

Short bio (150 words, include contact data and social media links – name your file as SURNAME-name_bio.pdf)

Entry deadline:  September 14th, 2020

Submission is free of charge.
BCK will take care of the production costs*.

Selected works (up to 20) will be shown and screened in different locations in the historic central neighbourhood of Exarchia in Athens. The works will be shown in shop windows of cultural centers, galleries, bookshops, stores and cafes  in the form of a small-scale photo festival. Viewers will be invited to explore the exhibition and the neighbourhood  following a map especially designed for the event.

*Balkan Can Kino is a self-organised and collectively run artistic project, running on a low-budget and on a voluntary basis. Our organisation has a DIY spirit, but we guarantee that we take care of all the details for well curated events. Unfortunately at the moment we can’t offer tickets or accommodation to the selected artists, but  if you wish to come visit we will be pleased to offer accommodation tips and meet you! 

DISCLAIMER: By submitting to the open call, photographers acknowledge:
– they own the copyright of the pictures submitted and that they don’t violate the rights of a third party.
– they give the right to Balkan Can Kino to publish a selection of their images on online and print media in order to promote the exhibition and the 2020 Film Symposium.

Feel free to contact us for any questions & to share this call with people that might be interested.

Organised & curated by:

HELEN OF SPARTA eResidency

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Intensive 4-day virtual residency + workshop + public presentation for visual, multimedia and interdisciplinary artists, jewellery and fashion designers who work - or want to work - with textile art, story telling, mythology, performance

 

Helen, the mythical queen of Sparta, causes a merciless war after she falls in love with the enemy.

The "Helen of Sparta" eResidency aims at inspiring eight artists/writers/performers to develop their own updated version of the ancient Greek myth. The intensive four-day program addresses issues, such as misogyny, abuse, manipulation, fake news, armed conflict. The eResidents' work will be presented live online, in a video and an e-publication.

 

The eResidency program "Helen of Sparta" ambitions to introduce artists into the tradition of Greek art and culture, with a strong focus on narrative, Greek mythology, textile art, dress culture, women's history, performance and design.

 

The idea of the eResidency program reflects the tradition of 18th and 19th century travelers in Greece whose impressions greatly influenced artists and intellectuals in their own countries. Johann Joachim Winckelmann, archaeologist and founder of the Art History discipline, for example, never visited Greece, but developed his approach based on what he had read or heard from travelers. German poets Goethe and Hölderlin found inspiration in Greek antiquity without ever having visited the country. The rediscovery of "Greek aesthetics" in art, architecture and fashion, and the revival of  democracy in the age of enlightenment was more a product of imagination than of physical presence.

 

Due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, the intensive workshop takes place exclusively online, including tele conference, live streaming, customized exercises and individual advice. The tightly scheduled monitoring and coaching program consists of lectures, slideshows and videos, visual notes, group meetings and personal chat.

 

Participants of the "Helen of Sparta" eResidency have the option to visit Greece (Athens or Arcadia/Peloponnes) in Summer/Fall 2021.

 

Details:

 

Developing a narrative and a story board, a performance concept and a choreography or an action script for an easy-to-do-it-yourself video is the feasible outcome of the workshop.  

Participants develop the concept, write the script, shoot and cut their video, even without prior knowledge or experience.

Participants’ videos will be published online and shared via the social media.

Text and photographic material will be published in SMCK Magazine (www.smck.com). A live streaming presentation of participants' work will also be scheduled instead of the usual (physical) exhibition opening.

 

Total of hours (Workshops/coaching):

 

• Workshop (21 hours)

• Performance:  8 hours

• From Greek mythology to narrative: 4 hours

• Video scenario: 3 hours

• Easy video techniques: 2 hours

• From Greek crafts (textile, jewellery, ceramics) to contemporary design: 2 hours

• Objects as performance inspiration: 1 hour

• Individual coaching: 2 x 30 minutes/artist.

• Homework required: 3 hours/day

 

Each session is one hour maximum with intermissions in between.

 

Reference: A similar eResidency - Helen's Dress - exclusively designed for and funded by Stavros Niarchos Foundation, was realized by FaveLAB's Christoph Ziegler and Loukia Richards in June 2020.

Four plus one Elements

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

KINONO Tinos Art Gathering introduces the thematic proposal "FOUR (PLUS ONE) ELEMENTS”, borrowing the four natural elements (earth, water, air, fire) and distinguishing their partnership in the creation, over time, of the peculiar natural and man-made environment of the island of Tinos. By creating different conditions of studying space, which monitor the cycle-chain of transformation from one natural element to another, KINONO imagines the partnership of a combination of two elements, under the influence of time, in each one of the hand-picked locations, as follows:

Fire-Water/Koumelas Quarries, Water-Earth/Plain of Komi, Earth-Fire/Ismael village, Fire-Air/Papargyras Lighthouse, Air-Earth  /Kakia Skala, Air-Water/Livada Beach.

This 23-day interdisciplinary, gathering of creators and thinkers and the dialogue between them will culminate in three days of collective presentations (October 15-18), per location, of a series of symposia, on-site research projects and workshops, performing arts, art exhibitions.

We invite those interested to choose one element, along with one of the three respective locations, stating in their application their desired method of participation in the residency (full duration / limited (guest) duration or online)
