OPEN CALL: Remote digital residency - ENTER





This past year saw a surfeit of digital interactions, spaces, and communication in our online worlds. Poor internet connections, unfriendly interfaces and privacy concerns are among the issues we face as users of online platforms. This open call seeks to question how an alternative digital space could look and feel.

In line with these issues, Enter asks you:

How would you redesign the tools, visual design and interactions of Enter, in order to create and alter intimate, human-focused online interaction in the platform?

We call upon all thinkers and creators with experience in digital culture to apply!

Click here to find more about ENTER: 

Enter is a video conferencing platform for online and hybrid events in the cultural field, developed by Het Nieuwe Instituut. Enter combines ongoing experimental design and development with critical reflection on the implications of online platforms. There are many assumptions built into existing platforms such as Zoom and Facebook, without the possibility for users to appropriate any of these tools. The focus of Enter is on finding more human-centred ways to present online and hybrid cultural programming, addressing a range of use cases in the cultural field. The platform has been in development since April 2020 and currently hosts artist residencies, collaborative research projects, live streams, online event recordings and small group meetings.

For this online residency, you will be working with the Enter project team, all of whom have trained as artists and share an experimental approach to design. Together with our team, you will create an artwork as a separate ‘room’ in Enter, that will be available to an online audience for the duration of the exhibition Temporary House of Home. This residency is a chance for us all to experiment and together see how we can devise a new digital platform for communities and networks. If it ‘breaks’ or falls apart, we also see that as a worthwhile experiment.

Prizes Details: 

This is a remote residency. A stipend of  €1,500 will be provided for the resident.

Opulent Mobility 2021 call for art



Since we are finally seeing a light at the end of the pandemic tunnel (and it doesn't seem to be a train), it’s time to update the theme of Opulent Mobility. We want you to re-imagine disability as opulent and powerful, and also ask you to consider freedom. What does freedom mean to you? Freedom of movement, of expression, of association, and of identity-- all of these are possibilities. Share your artwork that re-imagines disability, mobility, and freedom.
We accept 2-D and sculptural artwork, music files, and performances on video/film. Please submit your work online! The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2021. This year the entry fee is waived, and any art sales requests will be directed to the artists.Opulent Mobility 2021 is co-curated by A. Laura Brody and Anthony Tusler.
We look forward to sharing your work with the world!

OM 2021 will run October 1-31, 2021 at Plummer Park's Long Hall in West Hollywood, CA. Many thanks to the City of West Hollywood for including the exhibit as part of their celebration of Disability Awareness Month!
