Uncreatively Writing is an ongoing project between Igor Guedes and Uni So, in which certain parts of pre-existing digital texts are erased to create new meanings. Together, the artists use this method of writing to explore and suvery different social matters not limited to LGBTQI+, gender rights, and racial issues.

 

We are currently looking for a new text to work with that is less than 750 CHARACTERS.

 

The theme is open-ended but we are especially keen with social subjects. We often work with excerpts from literature, transcribed conversations, and even Whatsapp conversations. 

The selected text will be reinterpreted into two different versions by the Uncreatively Writing team, which will be uploaded on the instagram page as a triptych. And we also have a gift to send out to you: a custom made bag with the reinterpreted texts of your submission and a aprint out of the triptych. 

 

In order to receive your gift, 

 

  1. Follow @uncreativelywriting 
  2. Send us a DM with your text ( less than 750 characters ) and please cite the source !
  3. Read and like three of our posts so you have an idea of what our work is

 

We will announce the selected text on the 31st of January on our instagram page. 

We look forward to collaborating with you !

Bivouac

Eligibility:

What tools could enable us to develop new paradigms to respond to the social, political, economic or ecological changes awaiting our cities? How can we do this in a context of depletion of natural resources, climate change or social and demographic fractures? New balances between individual needs, social projects and available resources must be imagined. BIVOUAC wishes to reflect on the diversity of these energies which seek to question current rules and habits, to find innovative ideas that will emerge from this troubled period.

Scheduled from June 4 to 27, 2021, BIVOUAC will offer the public the opportunity to immerse themselves in the 50,000 m2 of La Rasude in Lausanne to discover works created on site, in dialogue with the place. The call for projects is open until January 31, 2021 and is addressed to all artists, architects and anyone working on urban issues.

Visits to the Rasude site are organized on December 10, 15 and 22 at 2 and 4 pm and on January 12 and 14 at 10 am. 

Deadline:

Send one high definition image (landscape oriented) with: 1- your first name, 2- the name of the place, 3- the date the image was taken,

The objective is to create a book with a collection of images from around the world. Cloudy skies can be beautiful, a promise or a threat, hiding something, or triggering the imagination. On a symbolic level, a clouded mind can signify confusion or a fleeting interior state.

Eligibility:

In the centre of Lausanne (Switzerland), the forthcoming transformation of the 50’000 m2 of La Rasude site is the occasion for an ambitious artistic project, LABOR, conceived as an ephemeral urban laboratory. Planned over 4 years, LABOR will bring together artists, architects, universities, the population and experts to reflect on the current and future challenges facing cities. In 2020, the BIVOUAC exhibition proposes a first artistic immersion in the hitherto closed spaces of La Rasude by presenting ephemeral works created specifically for the site. On this occasion, LABOR launches an international call for projects addressed to artists, architects and urban planners as well as to anyone professionally concerned by the development and the fabrication of urban space.

Apply to the open call until 1st May 2020.
