Through the narration of the city - with street photography, storytelling, architectural projects of a vertical city of the future, pop culture or other - the exhibition takes into consideration the urban tales or utopias of the 21st century, identified the city as an urban jungle , as a mirror and alter ego of our civilization. The cities and or places where we live are made of contrasts and strong similarities, and each differs in lifestyle, cultural identity, communication of beauty, architecture, history, art and other urban curiosities.

FREEDOM FOR FREE

Call for Exhibition │Free entry

 

Accepted media: Photography, Digital Visual Design, Video

Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city. December 2021

-

In the modern age we have rediscovered a concept of Freedom increasingly linked to the right to redeem something obtained in exchange for something else. The medium of exchange is money, a bypass for freedom that allows us to satisfy our desires, vices and needs.

It is the same invisible structure within which we lead our existence to propose the windows of freedom, a selection of products and services that summon us to rooms of pleasure, where the dormant senses are stimulated and reactivated to rekindle with our emotions, the only residues of our human nature, that also make us alive.

The protagonists of the art world, as well as any author of any form of free expression, were the first to understand the need to live beyond these structures. This call is an invitation to propose works that testify to this rupture, where freedom is obtained without any exchange, where it is not a product and it is priceless.

Mediterranean contemporary art prize

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The Mediterranean contemporary art prize is the biennial prize conceived by the Porta Coeli Foundation to produce systematic and substantial solicitations in contemporary art, promoting the development of an environment that encourages the creation of relations with those many specificities of territories and society that characterise Italy. In order to produce frictions, encounters and exchanges of collective and mutual interest, the Foundation creates the conditions for the connection of an international artistic community with instances and roots of
geographical, cultural and anthropological contexts of high value and certain peculiarities.

The prize is held in high standing venues that are historically tended towards multicultural integration due to its central position in the Mediterranean area. Here dominations, encounters and clashes between peoples have produced an extraordinary mix that emerges and reveals itself in the urban forms, in the lexicon, in the gastronomy, in the social and symbolic structures used by the people to produce a mental image of the world. The Mediterranean becomes the conceptual representation of a border that is not a line but space, not the place of a contrast between two opposing voices but the place of a plural conversation. It is a space in which peoples lookout in search of mutual osmotic relationships, projection and aspiration. This idea inspires the Mediterranean contemporary art prize. 

Therefore, the founding concept of the prize is the multicultural thought of Frederick II, Duke of Swabia, who has left numerous castles and territorial garrisons in Basilicata. From here, he governed his empire through the promulgation of the Constitutions of Melfi (Potenza), the most significant code of law in the Middle Ages. Emperor Frederick II, nicknamed Stupor Mundi (Wonder of the world), had intuited and promoted the concept of the universality of human knowledge. He was the spiritual father of a different idea of Europe with its centre in the Mediterranean sea. He found a strong representation of multiculturalism as a political method in an architecture capable of merging the Arab world with northern Europe, the Romanesque consistency with the dematerialisation of Byzantine mosaics. 

The prize chooses for this year castle of Norman-Swabian ancestry: The Castle of Monteserico, in the Genzano di Lucania area (Potenza).
The Mediterranean contemporary art prize application is open to all artists, regardless of age, gender, nationality, or any other qualification. Indeed, the main purpose of the prize is to build a plural and inclusive event.  

There are four categories of the prize in the 2021 edition:
— painting

Locus Solacii Art Residence Prize
Locus Solacii is the formula used in Frederick’s era to denote those secluded strips of land, away from the traffic, considered precious, to be preserved because they were charming to relief from the hardships of everyday life, of war, of politics.

Terre da Film Festival

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

THEME

The historical period in which we live is inevitably leading us to ask ourselves again who we are and where we put ourselves in the world. In addition to asking ourselves who we are today, we must also ask ourselves what our relationship is with others and how to include them in our lives.

At its first edition, Terre da Film Festival focuses on the theme of the IDENTITY.

Identity as choice.
Identity as a mirror.
Identity as a departure or a new point of arrival.
Identity of a place or a dear event.
Identity as a condition of perpetual searching.

We select short films that speak of them in a broad sense. We want to find new expressions, visual experimentation of stories that interface with the theme of the research of an identity.

Mixed techniques, use of unconventional tools (smartphone, action cam, film...) will be highly appreciated. In general, we care about developing research on the medium being used.

We select short films of maximum 30 minutes. All types of language are allowed. We decided, for this first edition of TDFF, to select shorts films for a single uncategorized competition. We want to amaze our public and ourselves.

Prize summary: 
Win up to 450 €
Prizes Details: 

The winner of the TDFF will receive 300 Euros and a gift from one of our sponsor.

The second place of the TDFF will receive 150 Euros and a gift from one of our sponsor.
