Suoja/ Shelter Festival-Laboratory seeks a Curator for its third online edition to be held in June 2020. Individuals of any age, gender, nationality and country of residence are cordially invited to send their proposal in English. 

The conceptual frame of the 3rd edition of Suoja/ Shelter Festival-Laboratory is H_st_rical Narratives: the main focus is laid on the aspects of personal and political affects in the domain of historical systems and speculations. We invite to ponder over how unreflected past can influence uncertain presence; how individual and common affects are used as tokens in political processes; how we can act as political bodies overcoming traumatic experiences and converting them into artistic endeavours, respecting artistic labour and embracing the idea of self-organisation. Driven by the spirit of the previous festival editions, we are reconceptualizing the idea of "safe" and "individual" which still can find ways to remain common and collaborative. Moving online, we are creating a space for performative experiments, discussions, immersive interactions; welcoming the diversity of artistic practices which can reidentify themselves for a digital space; offering to make it is a tryout with a prospect to continue working with the same topic, but on a bigger scale, during the future offline event. We believe that every safe space can be only a temporary measure to surmount crisis and to gain strength to meet reality. Being concerned by the trend of the devaluation of artistic labour by cutting wages for on-line work, we try our best to sustain a fair allowance for every participant.

A Curator will work in close collaboration with festival curators and organisers to develop and produce the core programme of Suoja/ Shelter 2020.
