Call for Papers, Artists & Projects
Deadline 20 June 2021

Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee is a weekend festival and symposium July 30th to August 1st, 2021 at Saint Kate—The Arts Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Our mission is to create a platform that allows us to explore critical issues around collage: how it is curated and presented, its role in contemporary art, and the tensions between collage as a medium, a genre, a community, and a movement. Our goal is to create an event that attracts a variety of people working in various capacities, such as art professionals at museums, galleries, and centers as well as academics, writers, and artists. Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee plays a key role in the work of Kolaj Magazine and Kolaj Institute, as it is a way for us to become familiar with a professional’s work. Presenters may be invited to participate in future projects. Responding to the Call is how you tell us that you would like to take on a presenting role at Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee.

The program at Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee will be a unique experience. Our aim is to break down hierarchy and foster dialogue among art professionals working in a variety of capacities. To that end, the editorial staff of the magazine works with presenters to craft a program.

A presenting role can mean many different things: presenting your topic or art practice on a panel, leading a discussion on a topic important to collage, or conducting a special project during the event.

Most presenters present short slide shows about a project or their practice followed by a Q&A with the audience. We are particularly interested in: historical perspective, art world economics, the role collage has played in an artist’s practice (particularly when their final work isn’t collage per se); mash up culture; the relationship between contemporary art and society; museum issues; surveys of how collage was presented in exhibition; collections where collage plays a central role; the role of collage in various art movements (Modernism, Surrealism, Pop Art, etc.); utopian and dystopian imagery in art; art’s role in the current political moment and, in particular, how art responds to sexism and racism; notions of power in the art world and its impact on collage. We are particularly interested in one’s experience as an artist: making art, showing art, selling art, identifying as an artist or a collagist, how the artist participates both in an art community and in society in general. We are interested in artists open to sharing how they navigate the art world. And we are interested in various approaches and strategies for collage making. This is by no means an exhaustive list.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION: Only apply to be a presenter if you plan on attending Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee in person. If you answer No to the question, “If accepted, will you attend Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee, July 30th to August 1st, 2021?”, your submission will not be reviewed and will be rejected. Presenters are responsible for their own travel to, accommodations at, and registration for the event. Limited resources are available to assist those presenters in need and only after their presentation submission has been accepted. If you cannot attend Kolaj LIVE Milwaukee, consider submitting to Kolaj Magazine another way. MORE INFO

Note: Members of the Kolaj Magazine Artist Directory will be able to simply refer to their listing in the directory.

The deadline to submit is 20 June 2021. Submissions will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. We will notify Submitters via email no later than 30 June 2021.

The Coronavirus. Became a source of stress or even anxiety for many people. For many more.. Something even worse.

What helped us out here was our Resilience. It can help us fight and overcome almost everything. Maybe the only downside of resilience is that, it's not something we receive as a gift. Needs time to build, shapes with your experiences. Basically we shape it as we progress through life. The reason why each and every one of us respond differently to Covid. Basically our capability of being able to go through difficult or even extreme events and how we survive the aftermath.

Like our Art.

Through this self-isolated times, we can see Art was only getting brighter. And here we are, trying to share the dreams in the Artist's eyes. Hoping those dreams will help us build more Resilience.

OPEN CALL – DYSTOPIA sound art festival 2020 Berlin-Brazil

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The Dystopia Festival brings diverse „sound artistic“ viewpoints together in an exhibition that deals with current dystopian moments, as well as those of an imagined future.

Dystopias have gained immense importance in recent years. Not only in fiction, but also in reality, the dystopian signals have been increasing, whether by authoritarian-led states, in threats posed by global Internet corporations, by drastic climate developments – or, most recently, by the corona pandemic. The dystopian always carries the germ of the utopian within it however, even if only as a warning to us not to let things go so far- as we have witnessed during the Corona period, when, for example, Venice’s canals became clear again, or, when the sky over Beijing became clear as well.

Following on from the premiere of the double edition Dystopie Berlin-Istanbul (2018/2019), our guest country this year will be Brazil. In addition to artists from Brazil, we invite sound artists from Europe to submit new or existing works that deal with the topic of “dystopia” in the broadest sense.

Artists living in Brasil will be invited for the festival directly. The open call is for sound artists living in the European region. Climate-friendly travel by train is preferable – if at all possible.

The festival wants to establish a sustainable cooperation with the Brazilian sound art scene and we hope to continue the Dystopie-Festival in Brazil in 2021. Selected works produced for Berlin 2020 will then be shown in Brazil.

Application deadline 1. July 2020     

Apply now!

The festival is organized by Errant Sound e.V. and is kindly funded by Kulturstiftung des Bundes and Berliner Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa.
