Televised Revolution: Working Towards Criminal Justice Reform Through Art

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

America is heralded as both the capital of consumerism and commercialization, with the highest GDP in the world, and the capital of mass incarceration, with the highest prison population in the world. Criminal justice reform is long overdue, and though underpaid prison labor plays a role in American production, those convicted of a crime are still treated as unvalued members of society. A simple campaign that focuses on viewing convicts as fellow citizens and humans and paying them fair wages for their production is necessary in order to achieve criminal justice reform. 

"Televised Revolution" aims to feature artwork by artists who are currently incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, or have otherwise been affected by the U.S. criminal justice system, with a particular focus on artists of color. The exhibition will draw the relationship between American consumerism and criminal justice reform by showcasing prison artwork and other creative commodities for the profit of the artist. Rather than focus on the grim realities of prison life and the criminal justice system, we hope the exhibition will help viewers connect with the humanity and depth of those incarcerated and provide a vision of reformation about the criminal justice system.

Conference "Another End is Possible"

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

As part of NEW NOW, the new festival for Digital Arts on Zollverein, we are looking for artistic and scientific contributions for our conference. Submit your ideas by April 25 and become part of #newnow21!

NEW NOW

NEW NOW explores phenomena of our times and will take place for the first time on the Zollverein UNESCO World Heritage Site in Essen from August 27 to October 03, 2021. For five weeks, the landmark of the Ruhr area will be transformed into an open production site for Digital Arts: The festival accompanies artists in the development of their works and invites the public to actively contribute. The Digital Arts serve as a venue for speculation. Here, artists and participants alike have the freedom to imagine and test new visions for the present.

Conference 'Another End is Possible'

As a discursive part of NEW NOW, an international and interdisciplinary conference will take place on September 18-19. Entitled "Another End is Possible", the conference will look at the interplay between humans, nature and technology.

While the world is becoming increasingly complex and the advance of technology is rapid, our environment is becoming more and more imbalanced. The end of the world seems to be approaching. Or has the end - the "doomsday" - already come, as some philosophers argue? Assuming we are already standing on the ruins of our society, how can we achieve a cooperative new start? How can we rethink our coexistence so that humans, biosphere and technology can coexist in the "New Now"?

Together with artists, activists, designers, coders, philosophers and interested minds, we will explore new models of society and dare to create a future worth living.

Do you also believe "Another End Is Possible"? We are looking forward to your contributions to the conference programme!

An invitation to the conference includes an expense allowance. Any travel and accommodation costs will be covered.The conference will be hybrid (adapted to pandemic conditions) or virtual, if required.

25/April/2021
