Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

(Istanbul, Alexandria, Athens‐Piraeus, Algiers, Beirut, Barcelona, Tel Aviv, Naples, Genoa, Marseilles...)
 

Fathom is a proposal of a webpage and a social media account dedicated to the artistic creation of a union of young early career artists, coming from all the Mediterranean cities that flourish with rich sea culture.

Our Aim: 

  • Under this organization we aim to unite "Thalassophile" artists that find their happy places by the sea. 
  • The artists of target here are the lovers of the sea, the creators that live(d) and grew up with the sea. The artists that are familiar with and shaped by their corresponding part of the Mediterranean region.
     

Through a properly managed social media account and website we aim to:
 

  • Promote any emerging career artist that use the literature, photography, history and scenery of the Mediterranean in their artistic creations.
  • Create a platform for cultivating fresh ideas revolving around the diverse Mediterranean aesthetic. These ideas may include designs, photographs, presentations, animations, paintings, poetry and more...
  • Get ourselves familiar with many more young artists along the way, by growing a community that shares the same enthusiasm for the rich, hybrid culture of the Mediterranean region.   
     

The Noun Fathom is a Term of Nautical Origin: 
 

  1. "A unit of length equal to six feet (1.8 meters), chiefly used in reference to the depth of water."                                                            "sonar says that we're in eighteen fathoms." 
  2.  "To understand (a difficult problem or an enigmatic person) after much thought."                                                                                  "the locals could not fathom out the reason behind his new-found prosperity." 

Fathom* (our name) is aligned with our aim of discovering the depths of the notions tied to the sea. The notions that can be found from the myths of the ancient world to the novels and philosophy of the modern age: From 'Odysseus' to 'Le Comte de Monte-Cristo' to 'L'Étranger'. 

Eligibility:
(As a starting note we would like to underline the fact that this is an idea in its very first phase, thus we are infinitely flexible regarding these bullet points. They are here to provide a rough guideline on what to expect.)
 

  1.  You are an early career artist, art student or you aspire to take the steps in becoming one in the near future.
  2.  You are coming from a Mediterranean country in which the sea/sea culture plays an important role in shaping lives, and your life as an artist in particular. 
  3.  You are committed to your creation process, you sketch, think and take critical stances on cultural issues frequently. In other words, you are in conflict with many things in life. 
  4. You strive to learn and create more of the shared nautical culture of humanity together with other artists.

OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS

PILOTENKUECHE, Leipzig / Germany

ROUND48 July - September 2021

 

"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Germanys new art capital Leipzig. The indipendent project is run by artists with the aim to support and empower artists.

 

The project invites within the “International Residency Program” selected artists from around the world to come and work in the 465m², fully remodeled space for a period of three months, with 24h studio access.

We maintain engagements with several partners, and by introducing our artists to these, make it possible for participants to cooperate with and exhibit in other venues. Our concept encourages experimental strategies aiming to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something collectively. In a group of around twelve international artists together with two local artists participating on our program activities, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one's work, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.

The Program activities are:

  • studio visits and open studio if the group is interested
  • contact to the local art szene,
  • organized museum tours,
  • scheduled art critiques,
  • published artists spotlight on each artist
  • professional install and exhibition pictures
