City:

Eligibility:

"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Germanys new art capital Leipzig. The indipendent project is run by artists with the aim to support and empower artists.

 

The project invites within the “International Residency Program” selected artists from around the world to come and work in the 465m², fully remodeled space for a period of three months, with 24h studio access. Each accepted artist is offered a partial stipend in kind that represents our unpaid working hours. We maintain engagements with several partners, and by introducing our artists to these, make it possible for participants to cooperate with and exhibit in other venues. Our concept encourages experimental strategies aiming to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something collectively. In a group of around twelve international artists together with two local artists participating on our program activities, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one's work, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.

 

The Program activities are:

  • studio visits and open studio if the group is interested
  • contact to the local art szene,
  • organized museum tours,
  • scheduled art critiques,
  • published artists spotlight on each artist
  • professional install and exhibition pictures
  • two group exhibitions in interesting venues.

 

The Studio space consists of:

  • one furnished up to 36m² large space per artist in our 465m² large communal loft hall including wifi and all side costs (water, underfloor heating, energy, kitchen, toilet etc.)
  • desk, little stroage space
  • depends on the work of the artists, but two walls to work on
  • large windows
  • approximately twelve artists per month working in the space
  • furnished shared tea kitchen with fridge, microwave, hotplate
  • Common area

 

Participants receive all documentation necessary to apply for funding and the visa process. If required, the project can assist with additional individual reference letters. We’re looking for artists to participate on our program in the 49th round from October – December 2021

Contemporary Activist Visual Art Performance with Martha Wilson

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 07/11/2021 - 05/12/2021
    
Activist avant-garde artists have historically ignored national boundaries as well as aesthetic ones, taking regular people to be their audience and any subject or material under the sun to be appropriate to their means.  Contemporary activist visual art performance practitioners view this avant-garde legacy as their own, incorporating musical, theatrical, literary, dance, film and technological elements in their work in order to address the pressing issues of our time.  This course will focus on critical examples of performance art from the last century to today to analyze how artists have positioned themselves in relation to current standards of artistic production and developed techniques of provocation to activate the audience.  Course work includes readings of primary and critical texts, class discussion, and performance art presentations by each member of the class presented on Zoom followed by discussion of this individual work.

Martha Wilson is a pioneering feminist artist and gallery director, who over the past five decades created innovative photographic and video works that explore her female subjectivity through role-playing, costume transformations, and "invasions" of other people's personae. She began making these videos and photo/text works in the early 1970s while in Halifax in Nova Scotia, and further developed her performative and video-based practice after moving in 1974 to New York City, embarking on a long career that would see her gain attention across the U.S. for her provocative appearances as political personae. In 1976 she founded, and as Founding Director Emerita, continues to help direct Franklin Furnace, an artist-run space that champions the exploration, promotion and preservation of artists’ books, installation art, video, online and performance art, further challenging institutional norms, the roles artists play within society, and expectations about what constitutes acceptable art mediums.

Martha was described by New York Times critic Holland Cotter as one of "the half-dozen most important people for art in downtown Manhattan in the 1970s" - she remains what curator Peter Dykhuis calls a "creative presence as an arts administrator and cultural operative." Martha's early work is now considered prescient - in addition to being regarded by many as prefiguring some of the ideas proposed in the 1980s by philosopher Judith Butler about gender performativity, many of her photo-text pieces point to territory later mined by Cindy Sherman, among many other contemporary artists.

As a performance artist she founded and collaborated with DISBAND, the all-girl punk conceptual band of women artists who can't play any instruments, and impersonated political figures such as Alexander M. Haig, Jr., Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, Tipper Gore and Donald Trump.

The workshop is open to everyone, from any artistic or academic background, at any level of experience.

This period redefined the notion of contact on a worldwide level. The International Festival of Digital Arts in Greece, Athens Digital Arts Festival, is calling the artistic, technological and scientific world to submit their proposals for our hybrid (online and physical) edition of ADAF 2021 titled Tāctus focusing on the redefinition of human connection, both as a form of communication and physical contact

The past year, humanity went through a unique experience that affected everyday life, especially human relations. Human interaction of any form came in the spotlight, got fetishized, commented on, and coloured with all shorts of feelings, deconstructed and reconstructed with every possible way so it can pull through this situation. Connection became the object of discourse, expectation, deprivation, struggle, revolution.

Humanity is reinstating the notion of connection/communication, restoring it in public consciousness as the “beat” of this world. During this procedure and with the help of new media for its implementation, a new meaning of the notion was created that is not yet explored nor fully defined. Technology has been utilized gaining more and more ground offering contactless connection as a substitute in its struggle to fill in the physical void. For some this came as a release and to others as punishment, for everyone thought was an experience that forever changed the way we perceive human relations

Installations,Video Art,  Performances, Web Art, Animation, Digital Image, VR/AR, Games, Talks, Workshops, Kids (which contains all the above for children) are the categories on which you can  submit your projects here by filling in the according form below. The submission form for both physical and online festivals is the same. The shortlisted artists will be contacted via email for the process of their proposal and possible details for the display of their project.

Tāctus, in latin, touch, arrive, achieve, as well as beat/pulse in music.

A new norm, hybrid between physical and digital world,

join us in exploring.

Prizes Details: 

The festival offers awards for the 3 first places of each of its categories. During the exhibition, the audience will be able to vote for their favorite artworks and choose winners.

Open Call Orbiting the glitch

Share

Eligibility:

‘Orbiting the Glitch’ will be a group show based on the exploration of glitch aesthetics in audio and visual production through the work of the collective glitch[dot]cool. Since 2019, when the glitch[dot]cool collective was established, their core value is the notion of community. The collective is built and expanded through community by sharing knowledge and skills. We want to expand this community even more, so we invite all the glitches out there to come and meet, create, destruct and re-construct, think, discuss, and make cool art. We invite creatives from around the world to submit an idea for a digital artwork which can be anything related to glitch aesthetics and the intersection of art and technology. We are looking for artists who have an interest in new media art, net-art, interactive/generative visual media, 3D digital art, cyber-performance, glitch art, or music.

We want to experiment in the virtual space through various forms of art and explore the performativity of the glitch genre. For that reason, we also encourage applications from performers and dancers who are either using generative software like Touchdesigner or would be interested in collaborating with other sound or visual based artists involved with the project. The exhibition will take place at NewArtCity virtual art space during October 2021. (exact dates TBC) This project is a collaboration between glitch[dot]cool collective and the independent curator Rafailia Thiraiou.

Rafailia Thiraiou is an emerging curator originally from Greece, currently based in Birmingham, UK. As a curator she values the notion of community and engagement. By forming communities she believes we encourage and enable change. Through realizing her practice, after receiving a Masters in Art History and Curating, she started focusing on curating online spaces,new media art and the relation of technology and art. Through online communities we get to decide who we choose to be. Time and space are blurred.. The dualism between physical and online space is what intrigues her and where her research is focused.
