Eligibility:

Call for submission: Visual Art, photography, poetry, and writing, for a book on collective rebellion.

In the ongoing fight for power among world leaders, the innocent bloodshed of victims, and the outstanding resilience and unity people have shown, we bring you: 

An initiative supporting inspiring strong-hearted individuals, who are an example of how wartime/uprising affects place, structure, land, culture, and individuals.

Governments see people who speak up as mutants, anarchists, and disobedient... and in turn, those same governments inflict disastrous mutations upon their people. This is a chance to give a voice to the rebellion against corrupted and abusive political powers, it is a search into how the psychology of humans changes when their environment, their rights, and their reality, are invaded and they have to stand up for it. Everything becomes meaningless except their unified resilience.

A chance for everyone to share their art or poetry/writings, revolving around political injustice, warfare, oppression, freedom, rebellion, changes, mutiny, and revolutions.

The invasion that occurred in Ukraine brought a humanitarian crisis to light that has been seen all around the world. In the face of all of it we encourage people to express, revolt, and share the fire they have inside of them, to speak up and freely make their voices heard. This project is a book made up of art and poetry by the people, for the people. A collective artistic revolution. 

All profits from this book will be fully donated to support and aid charities working in Ukraine.

Call to Artists: Poetry & Collage Residency

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

A four-week, virtual/online residency with Kolaj Institute in March 2022

Deadline to apply: Wednesday, February 2, 2022

It says something that in the Poetry Foundation’s Glossary of Poetic Terms, “collage” is one of the few visual art terms they define. Perhaps this is because so many poets have also been collage artists. In recent years, we’ve seen exhibitions from John Ashbery and Marc Strand, whose collage “dates back to his student days at Yale in the 1950s where he studied with Josef Albers, the renowned Bauhaus artist and color theorist, and also Bernard Chaet.” Arthur Solway recalled, “Though we were eight thousand miles apart we would have weekly Skype calls, and he was always eager and excited to show me the latest batch of collages he was working on.” A 2017 book of Helen Adam’s collages, which fellow poet Robert Duncan referred to as “pleasing weird”, has sold out. Keith Waldrop, Barbara Guest, John Wieners, Norma Cole, the list is long.

This project-driven residency is open to artists and poets. Participants will work together to investigate the intersection of collage and poetry by exploring concepts of found poetry, blackout poetry, collage poems, haikus, centos, response collages, response poems, word scrambles, concrete poetry, scatter collage poems, and other poems and artwork that inhabit this world. Together we will create working definitions and document techniques. 

Guest speakers will share their practice, knowledge and experience. Portland, Oregon-based Kevin Sampsell is an editor, publisher, bookstore employee, collage artist, and author. His forthcoming book of collage art and poems, I Made an Accident, is being published by Clash Books. Renée Reizman is an interdisciplinary curator, artist and writer specializing in social practice and civic engagement. Her workshop, “Deconstructing Legalese”, uses found poetry to examine contracts and codes imposed upon us by bureaucratic systems, and reconstructs the language to reclaim our personal histories. Rod T. Boyer creates art and poetry under the moniker our thomas, exploring themes of redemption, mystery, and transformation. In Kolaj #32, his article, “Mind the Gap,” explored how collage and haiku share similar mechanisms of juxtaposition and disjunction.

In several virtual meetings over four weeks (see schedule below) and through ongoing, online discussion, artists will leave the residency with a deeper understanding of the intersection of collage and poetry. Individual participants will each create 3-5 page spreads that will be included in a forthcoming book of collage and poetry from Kolaj Institute. The pages may be entirely text, entirely images, or some combination of the two.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

Collage Artist Residencies are intended for self-motivated writers and artists, at any stage in their career, who want to develop their practice by exploring a topic or working method and collaborating with others to produce a final product. Residencies are open to any artist over the age of 21 from anywhere in the world. 

COST

The cost of the residency is $500 per artist; however, no artist will be turned away for lack of funds and the organizers will work with artists to build a financial aid package.

Deadline: 
02/February/2022

8th International Marianne Brandt Award

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Connectedness —
Experiments on a new relationship with nature

The 8th International Marianne Brandt Award 2022 asks artists and designers how that which connects us with other living beings and habitats can be newly discovered and designed. We are looking for projects, images, and texts on cooperative, aesthetic, metaphorical, and poetic exchanging relationships with other organisms and natural existences.

 

How could we conceive and design connecting processes, objects, and atmospheres in this sense? How can we talk, write and tell about our existential connections in poetic and creative ways?

In the 1920s the Chemnitz-born artist and Bauhaus designer Marianne Brandt had written poems, in which she discovered forms of nature that appear like poetic and constructive role models for her shiny and geometric metal designs of “tableware” and “lighting bodies”. The sea appeared 
as a “shimmering round” or the moon as 
a “sculptural sphere”. At the same time, 
she searched for analogies in natural phenomena for her sensations and moods. Brandt found resonance in “sheet lightning” or in “rippling waves”.

What are the approaches to nature that are relevant for artists and designers today? How can we foster, show or celebrate moments that connect us?

Prize Summary: 
15.000 € cash prizes, exhibition, catalog
Prizes Details: 

We award 5.000€ in each category - project, photography, text. 60 nominated works will be exhibited at Wirkbau Chemnitz and published in a catalog at Jovis Verlag Berlin. Special prices will be given by special prize donors.

03/March/2022

This call will take special interest in non-listed cities and countries.
