OPEN CALL - RAKE COMMUNITY 2021: PRACTITIONERS-IN-RESIDENCE

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Calling artists, researchers, writers, data analysts, journalists, activists, academics, scientists, community groups, curators, photographers, poets and everyone else to submit to RAKE Community 2021: Practitioners-in-Residence!

RAKE Community is an autonomous platform for practitioners to develop research-based visual enquiries. It aims to build a framework for socially and politically driven projects while promoting accessible exchange outside of traditional routes or institutions.

After an intensive two-month collaboration initiative in 2020 followed by a year of fascinating takeovers on the community Instagram page, we are pleased to launch the second iteration of the programme which will take the form of a series of digital residencies on the platform throughout the rest of 2021.

The selected practitioners will be designated one month to carry out their own solo research on Instagram, where each will be expected to present a series of posts showcasing the development of their research - no formal outcomes are required. Practitioners will be encouraged to communicate, critique and collaborate with one another throughout the entire period, with the support of RAKE members.

Applicants are asked to consider the theme (IN)VISIBILITY - which seeks to capture the duality between the visible and the obscured, wherever it may occur. Encompassing secrecy, in-between spaces, that which is ’hidden in plain sight’, and the visualisation of the unseen.

We are particularly interested in proposals that are of an investigative nature; that are politically-, socially- or data-driven; or that critically utilise new online tools or open-source inquiry techniques and technologies. 

The programme will include regular feedback sessions and communication with RAKE members and fellow selected participants. Practitioners-in-residence will also be invited to join the RAKE Community online workspace for ongoing feedback and support from a growing network of artists, writers and researchers, and will have the opportunity to contribute a piece for RAKE Post during their residencies.

Practitioners/ collectives of all disciplines and at any stage in their careers who want to experiment with new processes of interdisciplinary research and visual expression are invited to apply. Proposals are encouraged from all over the world. We especially welcome submissions from underrepresented voices. Unfortunately, as RAKE Community has no external funding, it's not possible for us to offer funding for practitioners-in-residence (or ourselves as facilitators) during this year’s program.

  • attained to, having been attained to
  • moved, having been moved, affected, having been affected
  • pulse of music in music theory, consisted of beats in a repeating yet distinct periodic short-duration stimuli perceived as points in time occurring at the mensural level. 

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. The nomination will happen in a beautiful award ceremony, after the festival. During the ceremony, artist will be called to speak about their work and present themselves, while they will receive a unique trophy, mentioning the artwork, the place the work received and the name of the artist.

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.

OPEN CALL FOR HACKATHON ON ART & AI

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

SAAI Factory invites artists, designers, coders, technologists and creatives from all disciplines to explore artificial intelligence as a means and field of artistic practice.

Our Open Call invites proposals that curiously, critically, and enthusiastically engage with the current possibilities of AI technology and propose alternatives to current developments such as style transfer.

The project aims to foster cross-disciplinary knowledge exchange and new approaches towards artistic production: How does the interaction between humans, AI, datasets and neural networks shape the artistic process? How can we foster interoperability, or synesthesia, between the four domains of text, music, image and movement? Can AI share the momentum of creation, when inspiration comes into being?

SAAI Factory will provide for a space to experiment and prototype AI driven artistic projects and support selected works. Internationally renown and dedicated mentors of the field will review the artistic proposals and check them for feasibility, tools and skills needed to realize the project. A period of online social encounter and match-making will form international teams around the artistic proposals. 

In Summer 2021, in an international hybrid hackathon the participants will come together and join forces to prototype, experiment and work on the realization of the artistic ideas. The hackathon will take place both locally - in Hamburg, Zurich, Lagos, Thuwal, Riyadh, Dubai, Mumbai, Bangalore, Mumbai, and San Francisco - and virtually. By the end of the hackathon, all prototypes will be presented to the international community. 

A board of mentors and partners will select six prototypes that will be rewarded with a fee of $2.000 and the opportunity to create a further developed version of their work for an exhibition at the Goethe Institutes in Mumbai, Abu Dhabi and San Francisco, as well as the ZKM Karlsruhe in spring 2022. Further production support will be provided. All involved creators, project ideas and prototypes will be presented during the exhibition as well.
