DiDe Distretto del Design and Festival del Tempo launch
the International Call for Residencies for the third edition of the
Genova BeDesign Week 18-22 May 2022

Deadline for submitting applications 16 April 2022

 

On the occasion of the Genova BeDesign Week 2022, which will take place in Genoa from May 18th to May 22nd, 2022, DiDe Distretto del Design and Festival del Tempo jointly announce an international call for proposals in order to assign residencies for the creation of installations within a part of the historic center of Genoa. These two entities, in fact, have been working for years on the social, cultural, economic and spiritual regeneration of the urban fabric in which they are inserted: in particular, this year’s edition of the Genoa BeDesign Week has taken Time as its main theme, finding clear connections with the aims and objectives of the Festival del Tempo..

The theme of the competition is focused on the relationship between body and space-time: the installations must be site-specific works that can relate to the places and the external and/or internal spaces of a part of the historic center of Genoa and that eventually involve the local community by enhancing specific identities and peculiarities. Participation in the call is free and open to all citizens resident in Italy or abroad, from 18 years of age, without limits of nationality, gender, ethnicity or religion. The residency will take place from Saturday, May 14 to Sunday, May 22, 2022: the projects will be inaugurated on May 18 and will be open to the public until May 22, throughout the duration of the Genoa BeDesign Week 2022.

The winners of the competition (the precise number will soon be communicated) will receive a prize of € 500.00, hospitality and assistance for the entire period of residency, thereby having the opportunity to participate in one of the most important events at national level and get in touch with professionals, cultural operators and companies. The deadline for applications is April 16, 2022 and all information and the call for entries are available on the websites of DiDe Distretto del Design and Festival del Tempo.

REAKTOR Potenziale

Eligibility:

 

The REAKTOR’s cross-disciplinary programme features works that are imbued with the spirit of the times. Indeed, what is still considered experimental today may well one day be perceived as timelessly permanent. That is particularly true of contemporary art. The REAKTOR’s call for concepts is designed to seek out that very potential in the visual arts, hence the title Potenziale. Particular emphasis is to be placed on space-defining art for the REAKTOR’s architectural core, i.e. its main hall.

The application is a single-stage process. A description, sketches, and an enclosed portfolio of earlier works are sufficient. The REAKTOR team will be on hand to assist with the finalisation and support the implementation. A budget of up to EUR 3,500.00 is available for the exhibition production, together with practical assistance from the REAKTOR’s technical team.

Selection criteria:

- Art experience | The Open Call is looking for works that address the topic of reason and emotion.

- A balance between conceptual depth and material precision | Previously completed works featured in the portfolio will be taken into consideration when assessing the submission.

- Preference will be given to objects and/or concepts that make full use of the main hall’s sizeable volume.

- Site specificity | Optionally a dialogue is to be sought with the genius loci (in terms of architecture and/or content).

- Feasibility | Budget, public safety

Prizes Details: 

The chosen artists will be invited to flesh out and implement their submitted concept as part of a one week’s residency in summer 2021 and then showcase it to the public as part of an exhibition in the second half of October 2021.

Deadline: 
31/May/2021
