MINIMAL. SIGNS AND FORMS OF THE ESSENTIAL

Call for Exhibition │Free entry

Accepted media: Photography, Video, Digital Visual Design

Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city. September 2022

-

The aesthetic perception of the matter man relates to in his environment conditions his existence on a daily basis determining his own behavior, choices, ideas and vision of the world.

This call asks for an analytical reading, a visual-conceptual extraction of the things of the world, a minimal reduction aimed at extracting those essential signs, shapes, traces and contrasts that create those structures - often invisible - from which we gather information about their own existence, exposing their nature, their function, and which enrich our knowledge of the world.

Open Call “Care in a World We Share with Others/Caring in a Precarious World” | Residency 2022 at the Museo delle Civiltà

Eligibility:

The Museo delle Civiltà announces an open call for a residency and the production of a project on the topic “Care in a World We Share with Others/Caring in a Precarious World”

Deadline: submission of applications until February 20, 2022

Taking Care Project description

The residency will take place in the framework of the European Project Taking Care - Ethnographic and World Cultures Museums as Spaces of Care, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

Museums of Ethnography and World Cultures are holding a great number of collections originating from societies whose members today are involved in social, political or ecological struggles. How can they be activated to address the twinned concerns of planetary precarity and the precarity of plural societies? In what ways can they shape more democratic and equitable futures mobilising their collections and (difficult) histories? And how might they help in challenge rising exclusionary politics based in anxiety around others?

Within this context, the Museo delle Civiltà is committed to exploring the connections between its ethnographic collections and questions regarding the climate crisis, the Anthropocene and issues related to the afterlives of colonialism.

The call is addressed to activists, artists, researchers, or cultural actors and creatives similarly engaged in contemporary efforts and interested in museum collections as sources of inspiration.

Thematic focus

The research of the residency will be based on the “Mostra campionaria” (Trade Fair) section of the former Colonial Museum of Rome, opened in 1923 and closed in the 70s of the 19th century, and currently in storage at the Museo delle Civiltà.

The collections of the Colonial Museum of Rome – a museum of colonial propaganda, whose main narrative was the exaltation of the Italian enterprises in Libya, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Somalia – are characterized by a strong heterogeneity of objects and sections: ethnographic, artistic, archaeological, colonial history, trade, and commodities compose a contested and difficult heritage. (Please see the Dossier on the history of the Colonial Museum on the Museo delle Civiltà website).

The “Mostra campionaria” section contains, among others, several samples of comestible goods, raw and processed materials, woods, stones, furs, and seeds. All these materials have been taken from the Italian colonies and constantly exposed in colonial fairs in Italy (and Europe) before and after entering the Colonial Museum of Rome. This section also contains finished products such as hats, bags, shoes, buttons, made for the Italian/European taste of the time.

The objects of the “Mostra campionaria” address forms of colonial exploitation and commercial propaganda. The purpose was to spread knowledge of the products and manufactures of the colonies in order to make trade relations between the mother country and the colonies easier and more profitable. The existence of these materials, and their history, is a direct result of a series of exploitations, predations, fetishization, and of a patriarchal relationship between Italy and the colonies. In addition, this collection addresses issues concerning environmental justice, and how the world has been permanently scarred by human impact.​

Given these premises, within the residency “Care in a World We Share with Others/Caring in a Precarious World” it will be important to investigate the contradictions concerning the term curate, as well as preservation (of art, heritage, memories, environment). The verb “to curate” (from Latin cura, “take care”) can express ambivalent meanings, especially if it is framed within the context of the former Colonial Museum of Rome, which require the adoption of postcolonial and decolonial approaches and perspectives. Among the various collections that compose the museum, the commodities section can cover a specific role in understanding the ambiguity of the term curating, leading us back to topics that have to do with the Anthropocene, colonialism, environmental exploitation, capitalism, and gender issues.

Starting from these considerations, together with the materials and products in the collection, the resident is invited to develop a personal output coherently with the objectives of the call.

Objectives

  • To engage in an intensive dialogue with museum professionals (and visitors) through the creation of different and critical perspectives.
  • To experiment with innovative forms of connecting ethnographic narratives with socio-political or environmental issues.
  • To find new ways to inspire and interest the public.
  • To enhance a spectrum of perceptions and glances on the issues related to the heritage of colonialism.
  • To develop a discourse, through various devices, able to involve a heterogeneous audience about the issues related to the interconnection between the ethnographic collections and the awareness of the colonial practice.
  • To deploy an original perspective on the role and the legacy of an ethnographic collection in the contemporary world.

Timeframe

  • Project’s submission: not later than February 20, 2022
  • Communication of the results: by the end of April 2022
  • Residency in Rome: between September 2022 and the ending of October 2022 + 1 week in January 2023 
  • Presentation of the final result of the resident’s work: January 2023

Output

The creative result should be site- and context-specific: conceived and produced in the framework of the dialogue between museum curators, the collections, and the resident’s inspiration, poetics, and politics.

The output will be presented in the temporary experimental exhibition which will open as part of the Taking Care Project in January 2023. It could also be exhibited in the Museo delle Civiltà and/or future events.

The Museo delle Civiltà will cover all the production costs of the project whose output will be acquired by the Museum as part of its collections. Conditions and terms will be defined in the formal agreement (see “Selection methods, terms, and conditions”).

Presentation of the work in the form of a talk, conversation, or performance is expected (see also “Additional opportunities and expectations”).

What we expect

  • Applications by activists, artists, researchers, or cultural actors and creatives that can embed and provide a direct perspective on the issues related to colonialism and decolonisation.
  • Commitment to stay continuously in Rome within the months of September and October 2022 and to set up the output and attend its presentation in January 2023.
  • The active participation in the Museum’s life within the months of the residency in Rome.
  • The production of a creative and original output that will be able to develop and enhance perspective, thoughts, and reflection about the themes described.
  • The possibility to use and exhibit the output and the documents produced within the residency for the Museum’s activities, such as publications, social and media reproduction, and exhibitions within the framework of the Taking Care Project.
  • The possibility to use the output in permanent and temporary exhibitions of the Museo delle Civiltà.
  • The selected applicant will be featured on the Museum’s as well as on the Taking Care Project’s websites and in social media posts. Some form of interaction with the public, whether it be through public lectures, workshops, outreach initiatives, or other public engagement initiatives is required throughout the residency.

The word “canvas” was used for the first time in Italy in the 14th century and it has become the most common support medium for oil painting, replacing wooden panels. During the centuries, the canvas’ meaning has changed, starting from paintings, through the photographic and cinematographic film, exploring the human body, to the digital world. Canvas is the creatives’ common ground, on which they can express themselves. We invite all the artists to share their personal artistic research through any kind of media, from painting to sculptures and installation, from photography to video art and live performance.

Artists interested in taking part in our shows are free to be sponsored and supported by institutions, organizations, governments, and their representatives; the logos of their sponsors will be included in all the communication (digital and print) of the events.
