APPARITIONS

Share

Eligibility:

This Halloween, we’re asking artists and performers to reimagine the theme of dis-possession and the invisible for a virtual exhibition, APPARITIONS, accepting all mediums. Coming from a diasporic perspective, dis-possession is: separation and disconnect from ancestors, heritage, land, and bodies.

The intention is this exhibit will be a collective sacred space around Halloween, a time that’s centered on ancestral rituals and being open to the intangible. Submit anything you’d like to share in this space, including time-based media, interactive media, performance art, visual and performing arts, poetry readings, and live performances. Also, while this theme is inherently diasporic and personal, the exhibit isn’t limited by a diasporic lens, so don’t let this deter you from submitting!

WHAT TO SUBMIT: 1) artist bio AND 2) documentation and description of your work or a proposal for a live performance.

KEYWORDS: (im)material, sensory, memory, haunting, (dis)embodied, (in)corporeal, vessels, portals, mediators, ancestral, intergenerational, displacement, nostalgia, past, visions

DEADLINE: October 5th by midnight to apparitions2020@gmail.com

Deadline: 
10/05/2020

DEMO RESIDENCY: EXISTENZMINIMUM Open call

Share

Eligibility:

Kaunas Artists’ House (KAH, Lithuania) together with Kulturni Centar LAB (Novi Sad, Serbia) are starting to carry out the Reciprocal Residency Programme DeMo (abbreviation of Decoding Modernity). The programme aims to explore the connections between different modernities and to unravel modernity as a phenomenon in the broader sense of time and space and across cultural, scientific, societal and industrial developments.

SUBJECT

The call for the creation of a vast infrastructure of  multi-unit residential buildings, using new construction technologies and standartisation and adhering to principles of sanitation and basic existential needs (Existenzminimum, as it was termed in German), became a cliched catchphrase in the attempt to define the goals of modernist architecture.        

 Vaidas Petrulis in “Architecture of Optimism” (ed. by Marija Drėmaitė, 2018)

In order to expand the notion of modernity, Reciprocal Residency Programme DeMo will be dedicated to the analysis of the modern architectural term EXISTENZMINIMUM and the intensity of its meaning in these fluctuating times. At the same time the theme of the open call is conceptually determined by the current instabilities and pandemic crisis which also define the limits of our existence as well as the restrictions of Western modernity. Besides the very wide meaning of the term EXISTENZMINIMUM is an architectural definition used to maintain the human needs to have comfortable and accessible housing after WWI. The term was coined by German post-war architects of the New Objectivity who were eager to build as much cost-effective housing as possible, partly to address Germany's postwar housing crisis, and partly to fulfill the promise of  Weimar Constitution. What would be our minimum existence demands for living conditions today? How did it change during quarantine? How do we perceive the post-war architectural principles now? 

The artists from Serbia and Lithuania are encouraged to apply with project proposals that would reflect on the historical, urban and social developments in terms of living conditions in between the needs and demands while researching, reflecting on the key technical term of EXISTENZMINIMUM, the space for survival. The artists are expected to develop an interdisciplinary research based project and during the physical residency time to realise it using modernist spaces of Kaunas or Novi Sad.

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

In order to provide a broader perspective on modernity or modernities DeMo, a three-year programme (2020-2022) of Kaunas Artists’ House, together with the Derry ~ Londonderry Center for Contemporary Art, the thankyouforcoming residency program in Nice, the Culture Center LAB in Novi Sad, and other partners is inviting artists, curators, cultural field researchers, and multidisciplinary collectives to explore the possible interfaces, overlaps and divergences between the different modernities, their forms and expressions.

Materic.org - TOWARDS A NOMADIC SPACE

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

We opened our bodies in 2015, with a physical space in the neighborhood of Santa Eulàlia in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, the dormitory city of Barcelona, ​​a working-class, decrepit industrial territory, an area of ​​real-estate-cultural-human speculation, a testing ground to fatten the usual chauvinists. We have rooted ourselves in L’Hospi during these five years (the same as a raised fist), unpretentious and humble but with a lot of courage and the desire to share and imagine that other cultural spaces are possible, as well as other worlds. We continue to think that they are, we have lived and embodied them together.

We have always stayed in the margins of the margins. We place ourselves and build our own margin in the Trench of Art and Creation, from Sharing, making Community and from the Ephemeral that prevails.

The space of Materic.org in L’Hospitalet has been a temple, a place of learning and sharing in subversive love. We thank this space for its light, generosity and ability to generate energy and synergies.

In June 2020 we saw ourselves without this physical body, after a painful, violent and ultra-neoliberal capitalist process. Mr. owner of the premises has left us without alternatives or negotiations, in the midst of a global crisis.

Our steps continue because we have already traced our pathways. Materic.org has risen up as a nomadic space of radical creation and pedagogy; it has risen as an ethereal body. We have mutated into other becomings. Without physicality we feel free, volatile and light and with you, full of tenderness to continue walking and traveling.

From nomadism we will continue to trace other cultures, art that becomes empowered by being Life and not market, art to share dreams, imaginaries and struggles, art to co-create community.

This nomadism has already taken flight. At this time we have the honor of collaborating with the organisation of  MAR DE ISLAS performance encounter of the Caribbean in Puerto Rico and of being part of ARTefACTe, a performance laboratory for a new cultural institutionality in Barcelona.

A strong subversive hug to the entire community that is and has been accompanying us throughout the process.

Eternal thanks to our expanded family of friends, neighbors, activists, artists, pedagogues, researchers, and beloved bodies.

CRUISING DYSTOPIA OPEN CALL

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Nouvel Organon is pleased to invite emerging and established artists, art collectives, group of artists, architects, writers, performers, philosophers, social workers and everyone otherwise involved in contemporary art to submit a project for an opportunity to participate in the exhibition 'Cruising Dystopia' which will take place October 16-19 in Berlin, Germany.

Gay cruising areas, based on utopian ideas of freedom and a sense of finally being oneself, can otherwise turn into dystopian spaces, where one comes face-to-face with the limits and borders of that same society. The act of cruising is defined by a longing for intimacy, precisely in the lack thereof from that other “world” that is so violently exclusionary.

Is the word combination cruising dystopia therefore an oxymoron, or not? With 'Cruising Dystopia' Nouvel Organon invites you to submit work related to the subject from its different viewpoints without limitation to its shape or form.

Artists are invited to submit up to 5 pieces of work, with an artist statement of max. 250 words and a 1-page CV. Projects are selected based on relevance to the theme, quality and artistic integrity. Participation in the exhibition is through a selection process done by Nouvel Organon and a partner jury.

As a non-profit organisation, there is little to no budget for production of new work, but there is for installment of existing work(s). Expenses of shipping work to and from Berlin are for the artists themselves. If work sells, the artist gets the 100 percent—Nouvel Organon takes no commission costs. We also take no entrance fees to at least make participation more democratic.

Deadline: 28 September 2020 on 12am GMT+1

Exhibition: October 16-19
Berlin, Germany

Deadline: 
09/28/2020
