CHEAP | 2021 call for artists

Eligibility:

In 2021 CHEAP is issuing its 9th CALL for ARTISTS, targeting not only street artists but anyone involved in graphic design, photography, illustration and visual art more generally. The pieces applicants send in a digital format will be printed and pasted up on the CHEAP On Board circuit of bulletin boards in downtown Bologna.

For CHEAP, this open call has always represented a key element of its identity: it enables the hybridization of languages, breaks down geographical borders, launches a collective discussion, investigates contemporary issues from the bottom up and seeks to reassemble individual statements into a collective narrative.

***

Nothing lasts forever.
Which is fortunate, because it implies the potential for change.
Yesterday, today, tomorrow. Despite the fact that, as many have suggested, we just seem to be living the same day over and over, here.

It is in the nature of dogma to insinuate the idea of its own impulse toward infinity. It is in the nature of ideologies to treat the absence of alternatives as implicit. It is in the nature of religions to assert the impossibility of salvation outside of each one’s specific doctrine.

Nevertheless, existence is dialectical. It changes. Becomes. Discards. And overcomes.
In the exceptionality of pandemic-time, we have all wondered what has been taken from us and what is going to be different, or what opportunities this plague might involve: uncertainty and restlessness are the forces that have driven us toward fantastic futures set in unprecedented post-pandemic landscapes.

Fueled by this impulse, we have chosen POST in its Latin sense as the foundation for CHEAP‘s exploration throughout 2021 and this idea of overcoming will provide the launching pad for our public art projects in the coming months.
And this is how we set out today, starting with this Call for Artists. Our annual invitation, addressed to artists using contemporary visual language, to join us in contaminating public space: with signs and imagery, provocations and projects translated into posters. Beginning with this edition, the format has become bigger and color has joined black and white.

What we are asking of you is an imaginative step toward a possibility, however improbable, brimming with desires as well as fears, full of details and approximations both – in other words, an imaginative step toward the future.
Keeping in mind a before, starting from a point you recognize as now, you are invited to define an after. And the terms of that sequentiality are up to you.

We ask what awaits us beyond capitalism, after the next climate crisis, what happens after we turn 30, after we turn 90, after the downfall of patriarchy, after disease, after empire, after punk, after tomorrow.
We want to know how you imagine the end of democracy and what utopia may follow it, how you represent a community that has moved beyond gender and gender violence, how you envisage the posthuman landscape, the postcoital temperature, the features of a new posterity.

Show us the next symbols of liberation, how you would represent a society that has moved beyond racism. In what aesthetics will we recognize ourselves, what are post-traumatic perspectives, what is the new historical era you want to see take off after we wrest free of this one?

POST. A call for visions – on paper, on the street, in posters.

The selected pieces applicants send in a digital format will be printed and pasted up on the CHEAP On Board circuit of bulletin boards in downtown Bologna.

Centrale Fies, Località Fies 1 Dro (TN), Italy

Created in 2013 by Centrale Fies, in collaboration with Viafarini, LIVE WORKS - Free School of Performance is a platform dedicated to live contemporary practices that contribute to deepening and broadening the idea of performance, following the current evolution of performance and its styles.
In times of continuous change Centrale Fies and the curatorial team of LIVE WORKS add two important news to the Call of this edition.

6 artists will be selected and each artist will have:

an annual fellowship of € 3,000.00

Kick Off Seminar in the dates 10-13 June 2021, during Live Works Summit 2021*

a 15 day individal residency at Centrale Fies

a residency (optional) in an international partner structure

a collective residency together with all the selected artists, at Centrale Fies, in the summer 2022

in the frame of Live Works Summit 2022 LIVE WORKS – Free School of Performance

The open call LIVE WORKS includes creative residency periods for the selected projects. LIVE WORKS sees performance as a work space, and as an instrument and cultural exercise. Starting from the notion of performance in the visual art practice, the project is unique in its particular attention to hybrid research, underlining the openness and fluidity of performance, its social and political implications and its level of public understandability.

The announcement is open to a wide range of performative actions, also including sound and new media arts, text-based performances, lecture performances, multimedia storytelling, choreographic practices, relational and workshop-based projects, and other projects questioning the idea of performativity beyond the body.

Artists and professionals from any geographic location and with no limits on age can enter the announcement, as individuals or in groups, with a single project. The open call only accepts unpublished or long-term projects that need to be developed and/or concluded, for which participation would represent an evolution of the project or it’s final chapter.

The production of the performance projects during the residency will be supported by diverse types of curatorship, from theoretical to technical development, a Free School of Performance with studio visit, critical session and reading group. During the residency phase, Centrale Fies will provide a production and curatorial staff to assist the artists as they develop the selected projects.

For the two residencies at Centrale Fies, Centrale Fies covers the travel costs to reach Centrale Fies, food and accommodation for the two residency periods.
The budget of € 3.000,00 will be guaranteed even if the programme changes the form for sanitary emergency reasons.

The performances produced will be presented at Centrale Fies in summer 2022, during the second edition of Live Works Summit 2022. On this occasion the projects will be discussed by a board of international professionals, working for festivals, institutions, residencies and production programs that sustain and produce research in performance.

During each evening a program of established guest artists will be presented alongside the projects of the 6 Live Works artists.
