NNN.FREEPORT.GLOBAL - OPEN CALL FOR WORKS

The New Networked Normal is delighted to launch an open call for new artistic projects to be presented on nnn.freeport.global

The New Networked Normal is a partnership project by Abandon Normal Devices (UK), Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona  (ES), The Influencers (ES), transmediale (DE) and STRP (NL), explores art, technology and citizenship in the age of the Internet.

The nnn.freeport.global is an alternative space for the distribution of artworks, inspired by new networked geographies, duty-free art storage sites and free-trade zones, the darknet, and other liminal spaces, to ask what challenges and opportunities these spaces pose for anonymity, authorship, and autonomy. The platform experiments with the peer-to-peer, content-addressed system Inter Planetary File System (IPFS) as backend, with the platform acting as a hybrid HTTP/IPFS gateway to the artworks and content. Built as an alternative space for the sharing and distribution of content, nnn.freeport.global brings focus to the backstreets, black markets, and divergent parts of the internet to share and debate the value of art.

OPPORTUNITY
NNN invites proposals for the support of new creative work or the expansion of existing research into artistic outputs, to be presented on nnn.freeport.global between September 2018 - April 2019. NNN will support the production of 2-4 works with a budget between €1000 - €4000 towards fees and production costs for each project. This opportunity is open to individuals or groups working across any artforms in Europe

NNN are interested in works that further explore the nnn.freeport.global themes and infrastructures:

Extra-territorial Spaces
What opportunities can the shifting of existing territories and emergence of new territories (on and offline) create? From old, new and invisible borders to material sovereignties and new networked topologies what alternative forms of value making should be debated?

Future of the internet and its communities
What challenges are presented by radical decentralization of both infrastructure and data. Are there new ways of inhabiting peer-to-peer systems, darknets, and other decentralized spaces, such as blockchain, IPFS, beaker browser, bit/webtorrent, etc?

Algorithmic Citizenship
Networked technologies and infrastructures are challenging traditional notions of identity and citizenship. AI and other automation (most recently Deepfakes) can pose questions about authenticity. What does this mean for the future of freedom and surveillance?
