ALLEGORICAL IMPULSE 
OPEN CALL

Whether it be consciously or subconsciously, we are creatures that archive. A sentiment towards the remoteness of the past, and a desire to redeem it for the present -- these two are the most fundamental impulses to Allegory.
Allegory is a cognitive action where individuals apply a metaphorical method to understanding situations that normally don’t contain a symbolic language.

It is not a special way of interpretation, but a fundamental human impulse to draw diverse associations among concrete and more abstract experience. Caught in between the then and the now, we attempt to bridge these gaps to what has been lost.

“...to tame the trash by turning it into documents of culture and history … reduce the heterogeneity of the trash, its utter difference, so that a coherent story, and hence history, can emerge”
- Sven Spieker, The Big Archive

For 5 weeks (13 March 2021 to 16 April 2021) we will delve into the concept of archiving, and how it not only manifests as a simple act of remembering - but as an integral part of being. We will explore how it imbues all aspects of life.

And at the end, you will have a chance to be featured in an online exhibition that will be held during the summer (dates TBC).

Deadline: 6 March 2021
