Hysteria

Eligibility:

Open Call “3/21 - hysteria”

The history of hysteria is a history of the relation between the colonizing father and the colonized devalued other.”

Judith L. Alpert

ENGLISH

 

Hysteria was considered a "female" illness until well into the 20th century and was treated with violent methods. Today, gender minorities who fight for their rights are described as "hysterical", while populations who rebel against dictatorships are oftentimes not only silenced on a daily basis but also brutally beaten down during protests. Victims and survivors of psychological and physical violence are met with a lack of awareness. Those, who speak up about their experiences face victim blaming, defamation and retraumatization. 

But what exactly is hysteria and how does it manifest? When is hysteria a needed call for action, when is it hyperbolical selfishness? And why is there a lack of support for those, who don't want to accept what is occuring to them? How is it possible that politicians world wide are still able to stir up fears? 

 

The above mentioned and many other questions will be discussed during the exhibition hysteria organized by Lisa Jureczko and Ava Weis. The exhibition will take place between March 12th and 14th, 2021, online - and if the current situation allows it - offline at our studio kollektiv drei in Wuppertal, Germany.

hysteria is meant to be a possibility to deconstruct the patriarchal structurs of the art scene. Especially marginalized groups are those, who are faced with the accusation of being "too hysterical" and whose voices are oftentimes overheard, ignored, appropriated or censored.

 

Therefore, this call for applications is aimed particularly at FLINTA and artists of color.

 

We look forward to your submissions by February 10, 2021.

Wurde Hysterie noch bis weit ins 20. Jahrhundert als psychische Frauen*krankheit gesehen und mit gewaltvollen Methoden behandelt, erlebt sie heute ein denkwürdiges Revival. Gender-Minorities, die weltweit um die ihnen zustehenden Rechte kämpfen, werden als hysterisch verschrien, immer mehr Bevölkerungen lehnen sich gegen diktatorische Staatsgewalt auf und werden dabei brutal niedergeschlagen. Betroffenen von psychischer und körperlicher Gewalt wird Unverständnis entgegengebracht und die Schuld für ihr Schicksal zugesprochen. Wer mit den eigenen Erfahrungen an die Öffentlichkeit tritt, wird nicht selten diffamiert und re-traumatisiert. 

Aber was genau ist Hysterie? Welche Formen kann sie annehmen? Wann ist hysterisches Verhalten ein benötigter Aufschrei, wann ist es übertriebener Egoismus? Warum mangelt es an Unterstützung für Menschen, die nicht stillschweigend hinnehmen wollen, was mit ihnen geschieht? Wie schaffen es Politiker*innen immer noch mit Polemik Ängste zu schüren?

Diese und weitere Fragestellungen behandelt die von Lisa Jureczko und Ava Weis konzipierte Ausstellung hysteria, die vom 12. bis 14. März im kollektiv drei in Wuppertal stattfindet. In den Räumlichkeiten sollen dafür weitere Arbeiten diverser Künstler*innen aller Sparten gezeigt werden, die "Hysterie" und den Umgang mit eben dieser thematisieren.

Mit hysteria möchten wir die patriarchalen Strukturen der Kunst- und Kulturbranche durchbrechen, denn es sind vor allem marginalisierte Personengruppen, die mit dem Vorwurf der Hysterie konfrontiert, und deren Stimmen weitestgehend übergangen, angeeignet oder zensiert werden.

Daher richtet sich diese Ausschreibung insbesondere an FLINTA und Künstler:innen of Color. 

Wir freuen uns über eure Einreichungen bis zum 10. Februar 2021.

Revival: A Call for Radical Care

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

 Sulfur Studios invites artists working in all media to submit work for our curated exhibition; Revival: A Call for Radical Care.

 As a culture, we have been indoctrinated into social norms that have driven us to lose touch with who we really are. This past year we have suffered through the collective trauma of the pandemic and the awakening of many people to the systemic racism and injustices present in our society. There is a common misconception that our world is changing, but it isn’t. The facade is crumbling.

In order to reveal our true selves, we must practice radical self and collective care. As the Nap Ministry states, “rest is a form of resistance because it pushes back against capitalism and white supremacy.”

 Revival is a multidisciplinary exhibition that attempts to challenge how we interact with the world around us so we can begin the healing process.

 What role do the arts play in the healing process? How do radical self and collective care inform your artistic practice? What strategies have you been using to facilitate radical care for yourself and your community? 

 We will accept all media for this call. Artists are strongly encouraged to submit work that pushes the boundaries of rest and radical care conceptually, aesthetically, or both. Up to 4 pieces may be submitted per entry - $25 per entry for non Sulfur Studios Members, $15 per entry for current Studio Members.

 Work must weigh less than 75 pounds and fit through a standard size doorway.  Shipping and insurance to and from the gallery will be the responsibility of the artist. Art is displayed at the artists risk. Sulfur Studios will handle all sales and a 30% commission will be retained by the gallery.
