Eligibility:

The Film and Video Poetry Society Presents:
The 2021 Film and Video Poetry Symposium

Poets, writers, filmmakers, and media artists are called to submit their work to the 4th annual Film and Video Poetry Symposium. The film festival and symposium will celebrate and screen a large scope of film and video projects developed primarily through the medium of poetry. FVPS will host a media gallery, a series of panels, guest speakers, and public dialogues regarding film and video poetry over the course of the symposium.

The Film and Video Poetry Symposium will accept submissions of poetry films, filmpoems, digital-poetry, poetry video, choreopoems, Cin(E)-Poetry, spoken word film and videos, videopoems, visual poetry, poetrinca, media poetry, and film and video works that are driven by onscreen text.

The Film and Video Poetry Symposium also calls for experimental film and video work that explores language and/or literature whether it be oral, written, visual, or symbolic. This includes non-narrative work and the avant-garde. We strongly consider work that challenges traditional and current visual communication methods while continuing to function as a mode for exploring narrative forms and personal expression.

The Film and Video Poetry Symposium also calls essay film, works of epistolary cinema, documentaries, animation, performance art film and video, and oratorical works.

Lastly, The Film and Video Poetry Symposium seeks virtual reality projects, new technology, algorithmic, 360° Video, digital art, video mapping, installation proposals, and video art presentations that feature, hybrid, or contain strong aspects of poetry.

Sound, Language & Position with AGF

Share

Category:

City:

Workshop dates: 17/05/2021 - 2021-08-31
    
Listening is a practice - it is a political act. Sound is a way of knowing the world; a way of orienting ourselves, of expressing, understanding and contextualising our position. We can use sound to make connections, to grow decentralized networks, to organise. The possibilities of language - political language, deconstructed language, poetic language - to organise these networks and connections is intensely powerful and nuanced. What is political sound? Or collective sound? Does it have a transformative quality? How can we make sound together, and decolonize our practice as an individualistic form of expression? What technology can we involve, develop or hack? 

And, as we explore these networks, there are important ethical considerations. What is the relationship between the recorder and recorded? Do I have consent? Is it my place to tell this story?

This workshop will focus on each participant working to develop their perspective on three elements: sound, language and position. Each session will develop from the presentation of new ideas through to a set of directions, and assignments for the next session. There will be face-to-face meetings and group listening, as we manouvre towards the production of a short-form audio work for presentation on recon (https://rec-on.org)

Antye Greie (aka AGF) is an East-German artist and producer living on Hailuoto Island, Finland. She assumes a multiplicity of facets and roles – sound sculptor, poet, composer, gender activist, sound and new media curator. Her experimental music, without completely leaving the dance floor, proves hard to label. Her sounds at times echo musique concrète, other times glitch or noise, alluding to icons like Björk or Laurie Anderson. In spite of her clear poetic tendencies, language requently disappears in her work, drawing the human voice into a game with pure tonalities, beyond worn out recognizable speech. Ambient sounds, synthesized voices, dissonant malfunction warnings drain into the atonal river of post-digital aesthetics.

Having participated in Documenta 14 and Transmediale and received an award at the Ars Electronica festival (2014), Antye Greie is a complex artist whose praxis, though socio-politically laden, goes beyond mere ideology. Her fluctuating, modulating identity composes and recomposes itself from samples, comments, likes, and photos on Facebook, Mixcloud tracks, bytes circulating at dizzying speeds, always one step ahead of the newest control tech.

Antye's installation "Mycelium" - in which mushrooms generate sound, composing music in real time - ties into a larger project entitled (sonic) Wild Code, in which AGF and a group of artists, anthropologists, and computer scientists construct music from the audio feedback caused by rocks, wind, plants, streams, and a metal reindeer fence. These experiences in hybrid ecology were commented on by the artist in a text which recently came out in Musical Instruments in the 21st Century (Springer, 2017), a volume with theoretical underpinnings, broadly, in Deleuze’s theory of assemblages, of hierarchy dissolution, and free, rhizomatic relations.

Antye is an active member of the female:pressure community, and has militated for Kurdish and Syrian women and for the visibility of female electronic music artists and producers, actions echoed in the recent tendencies of Romania’s art paradigm (see Bucharest’s party scene and collectives like Vagenta and Corp). Her discourse aims at promoting equality of opportunity and diversity on the electronic music scene, interweaving power, responsibility and aesthetics.

Seeking Prose, Poetry and Artwork on the Theme of Hospitals

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The A3 Review is looking for poems, short stories, mini-essays, comics, illustrations, etc inspired by Hospitals.

Deadline is 25th of April, 2020.

We welcome short stories, flash fiction, poetry, comics, graphic stories, a snippet of memoir, photographs, illustrations, and any combination of the above. The only restriction is a word-limit of 150 and images should fit well into an A6 postcard-sized panel.

Some ideas for inspiration: Work inspired by hospital buildings, for example, and their public phones and car parks. Or the view from a hospital window. Consider the small things, too. The surgeon's tools, the items on a tray of food, those small acts of kindness. Write a praise song to nurses. Write about ways to pass the time in hospital and the memories those activities evoke. You could tell the story of being rushed to hospital or escaping from one. The first time you had stitches. An encounter in a waiting room. The second time you had stitches. Write about hospital food and hospital beds, sanitation and hygiene, humour and coldness. Take inspiration from Marianne Boruch’s “Hospital” and consider what it's like to watch hospital staff doing their work. 

Prizes Details: 

Publication and cash prizes.

The A3 Press: Call for Chapbook Manuscripts

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The A3 Press is looking for new chapbook submissions. Deadline is 10 January, 2020.

The A3 Press is a place for work that might struggle to find a traditional home, work that's lyrical and intense, a bit weird, perhaps, hybrid, experimental. We like work that is urgent, that says something about what it's like to be alive at this point in history. 

Do you have a series of poems or short stories, or a long story that can be spread out over several pages? Maybe a short play in 12 parts or scenes, or even 12 very short plays? Do you have a combination of drawings and short stories? Poems and photographs? Maybe 12 drawings or photographs without text that would fit into our A3 map-fold format?

We publish approximately ten titles a year. Email us directly with any questions, or contact us via Twitter.

Prizes Details: 

Selected titles receive £200 (approx $250) and 10 copies of their chapbook.

Deadline: 
01/10/2020
