Radical Empathy: wendy.network's New Open Art Call

Share

Eligibility:

Dear community,

We’re looking forward to our call for artists framing the topic of:

RADICAL EMPATHY.

Why did we choose this topic and where does it come from?

As you may know, the KONJUNGATE project is based on my cyber novel MACHFELD, written in 1999. One of the main characters of this book is Wendy, a fascinating person, who works as an agent for Satoshi NAKAMOTO. On the one hand, she is smart and full of empathy for the cultural conflicts of different extra-galactic forms of life – which is a central part of the novel – and on the other hand, she has a secret job to do that goes against her personal convictions. In addition, she is the eponym of our network.

Like all of us, she has to make decisions on a daily basis that will change her future life forever. If you see life as a system of experiences and socialisation, our choices are closely related to it. But can we break out of this framework? And do we as a society manage to establish a sustainable, empathic approach to one another?

wendy.network is committed to empathic interaction. We are open to cultural and artistic exchange without restrictions and we are aware of our social responsibility by implementing an experimental new way of decentralising art funding using cryptographic technology.

Art and culture have the power to exemplify empathic togetherness. Let’s show that to people.

Wendy is empathic and so are we.

Best wishes,

Michael Mastrototaro

 

wendy.network is starting a series of art calls to engage the community with Wendy’s personality. One of her main traits is having radical empathy and we want you, the artists of wendy.network, to help us define what that is and how it should impact our world today. 

 

We at wendy.network want to encourage each other to have radical empathy. We think having radical empathy is a cure for this year’s loneliness. 

 

Jack Schot defines Radical Empathy as “an active striving to better understand and share the feelings of others.”

 

For this call, we are asking you, the artists, these questions: What do you define it as? Why does the world in 2021 need us to have radical empathy?

 

After a year of physical and emotional distancing we need to start working as a society to be more empathic, in a radical way. We need to build bridges between each other and slash the distance that the past year put between us. By having radical empathy, we can extend the same acceptance we’ve had for ourselves over the last year to everyone around us.

 

The panel of judges will be members of the wendy.network.

 

The artwork will be available on the wendy.network for a length of one month.

Eligibility:

MMMAD Madrid’s Urban Digital Art Festival together with Goethe-Institut Madrid and LABA School of Art, Design & New Media launch the I Open Call for artistic projects in AR through Instagram filters.
“Our way of perceiving the digital world has changed radically in the last year. Telecommuting, online classes, streaming platforms, shopping or social networks make us spend more and more hours in front of our screens. Devices are already an indispensable part of us, both our bodies and the space around us are altered from the digital constructing new dimensions of the sensitive field. The physical and digital worlds are getting closer and closer.

From the urban to the domestic space, we are looking for WorldAR artistic proposals in Instagram filter format that raise new possible places and times from the creation of digital objects or environments.

Within the context of WorldAR, possibilities are opened from which to transform the world in which we live: distortions, glitches, translations, defects, dissolutions, parodies, and effects with objects that alter reality in any of its possible variations. Original works that work from an artistic and contemporary perspective."

WINDOWS INTO THE VIRTUAL AND AUGMENTED REALITY

Call for Exhibition│Accepted media: Photography, Digital Visual Design

Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city. February 2021

-

Since the Renaissance period the concept of frame itself has been a reference to the idea of a window that opens to external worlds, to others, and to what is beyond reality. With the invention of the photographic medium, and cinematography later, the first virtual reality constructions come to be. These are capable of involving the recipient / spectator in a more participatory way thanks to an aesthetic and narrative arrangement that favors a direct, and at the same time illusory, experience of a specular real world.

Augmented reality today represents a further development of this immersion:a reality where the participant (no longer just a spectator) interacts with avatars and virtual constructions.

Deadline 7th November 2020
