DiDe Distretto del Design and Festival del Tempo launch
the International Call for Residencies for the third edition of the
Genova BeDesign Week 18-22 May 2022

Deadline for submitting applications 16 April 2022

 

On the occasion of the Genova BeDesign Week 2022, which will take place in Genoa from May 18th to May 22nd, 2022, DiDe Distretto del Design and Festival del Tempo jointly announce an international call for proposals in order to assign residencies for the creation of installations within a part of the historic center of Genoa. These two entities, in fact, have been working for years on the social, cultural, economic and spiritual regeneration of the urban fabric in which they are inserted: in particular, this year’s edition of the Genoa BeDesign Week has taken Time as its main theme, finding clear connections with the aims and objectives of the Festival del Tempo..

The theme of the competition is focused on the relationship between body and space-time: the installations must be site-specific works that can relate to the places and the external and/or internal spaces of a part of the historic center of Genoa and that eventually involve the local community by enhancing specific identities and peculiarities. Participation in the call is free and open to all citizens resident in Italy or abroad, from 18 years of age, without limits of nationality, gender, ethnicity or religion. The residency will take place from Saturday, May 14 to Sunday, May 22, 2022: the projects will be inaugurated on May 18 and will be open to the public until May 22, throughout the duration of the Genoa BeDesign Week 2022.

The winners of the competition (the precise number will soon be communicated) will receive a prize of € 500.00, hospitality and assistance for the entire period of residency, thereby having the opportunity to participate in one of the most important events at national level and get in touch with professionals, cultural operators and companies. The deadline for applications is April 16, 2022 and all information and the call for entries are available on the websites of DiDe Distretto del Design and Festival del Tempo.

Between Ebb and Flow: Interstitial Spaces 

City:

Eligibility:

Deadline: 3 January 2022

Exhibition: June 2022

Artistic fields Installation, practices of Listening, Outdoor Art, Sculpture, Social Practice, Painting, Visual Arts, Performance, Sound Art, Education, Interdisciplinary

Keywords Port cities, denied travel, interstitial spaces, diaspora, displacement, listening, micro-stories, post-colonialism

This open call welcomes artists and collectives to submit an artwork proposal for an intimate experimental festival that centres the harbour as conceptual framework and main stage. Hidden and fragmented micro-stories will be told along the interwoven paths that run throughout the harbour, that takes back its original meaning of lieu d'exchange, trying to challenge clichés ascribed to harbours as geographic and social milieu. Harbours are enchanted places but at the same time rough ones, a third space for who's leaving and who just came, interconnecting collective memories. Although still described as a crossroad of cultures and diaspora, this topos of a place for welcomes, farewells and mobility tout court has become a pandemic Utopia. Increased measures against migration led to port closures, travel limitations let us re-think the concept of proximity and the unexpected local revealed new exoticisms.   

In this liquid connected reality, it might be advisable to surrender to what pressed the stop button of the hypermobility of our social worlds. The most powerful tool against the constant drive for production at any cost is introspection: stopping and taking stock, becoming aware of the space and time between the productive things that cognitive capitalism has accumulated in a post-pandemic world. Looking back on ecology co-existing with us thrusts environmental issues into the realms of the individual, society, and humankind to examine the hidden scars underneath. 

Rather than the harbour as a symbol of the limitless possibility of direction, inception will be the "denied travel" in the state of suspense between here and there: a loss of compass. The interventions may relate to notions of time, suspension, displacement, diaspora, presence/absence, horror vacui, border closures and system(s) failure, but also community and counter-strategies.

The aim is to display and give voice to those fragmented polyphonic experiences that find in the isolated harbour their natural playground, enabling them to think about common feelings and struggles. The artworks will speak of deterritorialised people as a community to empathically transmit the shared sense of displacement that constitutes contemporary subjectivity. Does the presence gain new meanings through a denied travel? 

Floating in an opaque homogeneity, a rupture and its instability face the emergency to find a new navigation system to reposition ourselves. If we have lost the compass, we could even take advantage of this new perspective and enjoy the imaginative geographies of the mindscapes unfolding before us.

Can you feel nostalgia for a homeland you’ve never been to?                                                       

If the translocal impact of technological changes, social relations and political ideologies have fostered a novel sense of simultaneity and mutuality, do we still feel the need to travel? 

 

Prize Summary: 
A honorarium will be provided. Production costs (incl. transport and insurance) and other expenses will be fully or partially supported depending on the scale and feasibility of the project.
Deadline: 
03/January/2022
