Eligibility:

Sound Occupations are part of Student International film festival’s (STIFF) supporting program (26. – 29.11.2020.) developed under the Rijeka Capital of Culture 2020. We invite artists to send us their work that explores, records, changes, interprets, produces or in any other way interacts with the sounds of everyday life; in any preferred artistic medium.

Exhibition Sound Occupations is dedicated to sound as a primary generator of everyday and artistic impulses. 

Sound could be understood as an epistemological formative instrument that enables us to analyse urban and imagined spaces but also as an aesthetic tool to help us build and rebuild these landscapes in practice. 

Soundscape determines life’s rhythm, it influences people’s emotions, their motion and thoughts. It occupies, manipulates, alternates, provokes and defines our realities. Examining the sounds of a city or a certain space and community, we can find out a lot about social, political and economic forces at work in those spaces: who and what produces the sounds? Who controls it? Which sounds are dominant and which ones are missing? In what way does the sound connect or separate individuals, groups and images? What happens when a certain sound disappears?

We are searching for works that will explore, enrich and play with the subject of SOUND. Through innovative audio-visual content, objects, installations, live actions and performances, experimental videos, visual poetry  etc. we invite artists to alter the role of sound and make it dominant in relation to the image. The submitted proposals therefore may refer to different areas of artistic expression with the central focus on examining urban soundscapes, exploring ambient and the changes that happen in the sounds of everyday life. 

The aim of the Sound Occupations exhibition is to depart from a still existing dichotomy that separates art and reality, and to create works that contribute to a broader, fuller understanding of art and today’s society. 

Selected works will be exhibited during the STIFF Film Festival (26. – 29. 11. 2020.) as part of the Sound Occupations exhibition in SKC Gallery in Rijeka.
