Boomer Gallery Magazine | 4th Edition | Open Call





What is art? Where is it heading? 

Is art still in the hands of artists and art dealers or it has become a tool for the crypto speculators?


The world is changing, everything becomes more virtual including art and in the process a lot of speculators are trying to twist things in their own interest like in the case of NFT. 


The crypto speculators are trying to make this the new “COOL” but what is so cool about it? 


Art is food for our souls, If they want this to be the new truth then they should start doing everything virtually, for example start eating virtual food or maybe get drunk with virtual alcohol, if they do this then by all means we will start to believe in their vision. 


As for us- galleries, artists, collectors… should we let hundreds of years of artistic refinement in the hands of the crypto speculators that don’t even know the difference between renaissance and contemporary? 


What about the painters, photographers, print makers, sculptors, performers and all the other artists who create real work, work that we can touch, smell, feel… should we give up on them for the sake of a speculative game? 

No thanks!!! 


NFT should be embraced as a new medium/tool  like we always did along the way with a lot of other things but it shouldn’t be allowed to take over! 


If it does take over then an entire generation of artists and their works will vanish in thin air making way for the crypto speculators and their pyramid. 


Should we allow this to happen on our watch?


The aim of this publication is to promote real art made by real artists! 


On the cover of our fourth edition we will feature the legendary British painter Francis Bacon.

Hindsight: Untold Stories from 2020





Hindsight is a book about 2020, written by people like you.

It’s rare to look around and say, “This is going to be written about in history books.” But in 2020, that was about the only thing we could count on. It was year unlike any other, for which there was an endless stream of descriptors: “unprecedented,” “the new normal,” “dumpster fire.”

But history books don’t capture the details of what it was like to live in a year when the earth stood still. They can’t describe the way hospital units came to resemble war zones or the way a cough turned heads on the subway.

So we put out a call for stories from 2020. We received hundreds of submissions from people in more than 28 countries about their lives during that trying time. Teachers and students, fathers and mothers, nurses and lovers — everyone had a story to share.

We have done our best to compile an anthology of stories that is equal parts fascinating, diverse, and authentic to the experience of living through 2020. The end result is Hindsight, a book of true stories about 2020 written by everyday people.

We are temporarily reopening our submission window in order to fill some gaps in our editorial lineup. These gaps concern two major events in 2020 for which we have not received narratives that meet our editorial goals: the Black Lives Matter movement and the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election. Please see the descriptions below for more information on the stories we are seeking about these events.

Black Lives Matter — In the wake of George Floyd’s death in May 2020, the Black Lives Matter movement swelled to never-before-seen levels of support. Over the course of the summer, protests cropped up in virtually every major U.S. city as well as many suburban neighborhoods and small towns. We are looking for people whose stories capture this perspective in time. You needn’t be a leader of your local chapter to contribute (although that we would certainly like to read that story), only someone who participated in the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020 and can speak to the motivation, emotion, and experience of that period.

2020 U.S. Presidential Election — The months leading up to the 2020 presidential election were some of the most dramatic, unsettling, and unprecedented in history of U.S. politics. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away, President Trump and future-President Biden traded barbs in an altogether demoralizing debate, and the country held its breath for days after President Trump contracted the coronavirus. We’re looking for voices that can capture the tumultuous period in time. Whether you cast a ballot, worked the polls, or campaigned for a candidate, we want to hear your perspective on this period of political history.

Submissions close again on August 12th, so don’t delay in sending your story! 

To submit your story or learn more about our requirements, visit our website at

We look forward to hearing your stories on these subjects!

Ageing from Existence





projektado collective is opening for video contributions to its latest project ‘Ageing from existence’. Open to everyone, professional or amateur, and driven by an experimental and collaborative approach to audiovisual communication, this project is an opportunity to delve into a shared and unpredictable process.

All video submissions will be used in the final piece, as long as they don’t infringe any of our platform’s guidelines* and relate to the topic explored in this open call.

‘Ageing from existence’ is not a project about death, or the idea of material transformation in time. Instead, our attention is on what is thrown away too soon; on people, practices and ideas that have been consumed by the aura of perceived obsolescence too often placed on socially significant parts of our lives. With the aim of shedding light on what, even when still living, active, meaningful, useful, is ignored from existence.

We see this in people and social activities, in the lack of intergenerational spaces and practices, in the segregation of the ageing population, in the inadequate support systems available to this demographic group that is rapidly growing but is still treated as a minority, in a longevity revolution that is happening but is not recognised.

We also experience these phenomena in the material world around us, with more and more of it falling into disuse due to external factors, rather than its intrinsic ability to last and function: technologies made ‘obsolete’ by an ever changing market obsessed with novelty and ‘innovation’; clothing, music, art, systems of communication that remain associated and relegated to socio-cultural contexts of the past; contents and media that are rapidly buried under the incessant production of more things to read, see, hear, know, experience; ideas, cultures, heritages that struggle to be heard in the chaotic and forgetful world of today.

This project aims to explore this urgent topic through storytelling. We will adopt an experimental and collaborative approach to content curation and visual communication to tell the stories of things, bodies and notions from an array of geographical and historical contexts. We are embarking on a challenge to assemble stories told through diverse perspectives and formats, and transform them into a coherent narrative.

We are asking for video submissions, of any format, length (min. 5 seconds), quality, or style. Submissions can be film, animation, phone videos, or any other media that can be displayed in video format.

Contributions should be made with the consideration of the collaborative and experimental nature of the project. To create a unique storytelling experience, an incremental curating process will be undertaken by the collective, where videos will be cut, edited and combined with each other, towards a unified whole.


*You may not submit content that: infringes any third party’s copyrights or other rights; is pornographic or promotes a sexual service; promotes or supports defamation, harassment or abuse; promotes or supports hateful or discriminatory practices; exploits or endangers minors; promotes or encourages self-harm or suicide; depicts unlawful real-world acts of extreme violence and brutality, sexualized violence, including rape, torture, and humiliation, or extreme violence towards animals; promotes unlawful or dubious money-making schemes, proposes an unlawful transaction, or uses deceptive marketing practices; conveys misleading information about socially and historically significant events, or false claims about public-health.
