Artist Residency at the Ethnological Museum and Museum of Asian Art at the Humboldt Forum Berlin

Eligibility:

The Ethnologisches Museum (Ethnological Museum) and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst (Asian Art Museum) of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (National Museums in Berlin) invite visual artists and designers to engage with the exhibition "Discovering the West" in the galleries on North Africa, West and Central Asia at the Humboldt Forum for a period of three months in the first half of 2023.

 

With the opening of the last exhibition spaces at the Humboldt Forum Berlin, the Ethnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst aim to continue and strengthen their collaborative approach. The inclusion of artistic thinking and research is fundamental to this, and the promotion of collaboration and a mutually productive space for artists, researchers and curators is central.

The exhibition "Discovering the West"

The exhibition deals with the reception, appropriation and reinterpretation of ideas associated with the ‘West’ in the Ottoman and Persian Empires at the end of the 19th century. Reports from the world exhibitions in Vienna and Paris were received with interest, but also critically in Tehran, Istanbul, Damascus or Cairo. Using the examples of urban redevelopment, fashion and furniture design, the exhibition focuses on how the new impressions took shape in the material and visual cultures of these cosmopolitan urban centres and how they led to concrete and far-reaching political steps. Changes in gender roles and social change are also manifest in the objects. 

Artist Residency 

As part of the residency, artists are invited to engage with the themes and objects of the exhibition and explore their meanings for the 21st century. In doing so, the creative and material aspects of the works could be considered as well as their inherent transcultural or political underpinnings. The manifold connections in the fields of art and politics, the views of the ‘West’, but also the new political alliances emerging with the independence movements could be further starting points.

Call to Artists: Politics in Collage Residency 2022

Category:

Country:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

A four-week, virtual/online residency with Kolaj Institute in November and December 2022

Deadline to apply: October 16, 2022

We are living in an explosively political time, faced with crises that are not only deepening individually but becoming increasingly intersectional in relation to each other. There is a strong history of collage art being used to tackle complex socio-political issues during some of the most difficult eras but how can it meet this moment and spark meaningful dialogues about our varied, contemporary issues? 

During the Politics in Collage residency, we will be discussing the history of political collage and important political collage artists, exploring how to curate and exhibit this crucial art form, and, most importantly, challenging ourselves to push our own artistic practice further in the creation of political collage. During the month-long residency, artists will hear from a variety of guest speakers specializing in different aspects of this form during four virtual meetings on Tuesdays from 4-6PM EST. Through ongoing online discussions and regular collage exercises in between meetings, artists will learn how to articulate complex political subjects in their work and explore how to inspire engagement with difficult socio-political topics through collage.

Artists in the residency will conceptualize and begin work on a piece exploring a political or social subject of their choosing. Although the works may not be completed by the end of the residency, they will be regularly critiqued and discussed by the group throughout. Artists will write an artist statement that documents and provides critical context for their work. The completed work and texts from the residency will result in a book published by Kolaj Institute and an exhibition, whether in-person or online, to be determined at a later date. 

G.E. Vogt will be leading the residency, shedding light on her own work as a political collage artist, as well as moderating discussions and sharing resources with artists. Professor John J Heartfield will discuss the history of his grandfather, John Heartfield, and how his work was not only a crucial part of the resistance to fascism in World War II, but continues to have a resounding impact in today’s world. Professor Wendy Parker will take the artists through a broad history of political collage, how it has engaged with and influenced different socio-political movements, and various collage artists who have played key roles in furthering this art form. Ric Kasini Kadour will speak to the importance and relevance of political art in relation to its influence on contemporary cultural and political narratives. Other guest speakers are to be determined and will be added to the curriculum as they become available.

The goal of this residency is to help collage artists who are creating social/political work, or interested in doing so, to grow and expand their practice. By the end of the residency, the participants will be able to practically apply to their own work what they have learned from lectures, discussions, and practical exercises.

ACCESSIBILITY

Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity for all persons regardless of race, sex, color, religion, creed, national origin or ancestry, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and disability. 

The Bemis Center campus includes two buildings that are ADA compliant with barrier-free access.

A cobblestone and brick city street separates the two facilities and conjoins the parking lot, which includes accessible parking spaces at the front entrance for visitors and residents. Okada includes two gender-neutral and accessible bathrooms with handrails. Workspaces can be arranged and organized to accommodate a variety of practices and needs.
