Call for contributions to an online contemporary art exhibition

We invite artists from the following countries: Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China’s provinces of Xinjiang, Qinghai and Inner Mongolia countries to contribute to an interdisciplinary online art project on roads and their social, cultural, political and economic impacts.

Topic

Roads – as metaphors of movement and as elements of transport infrastructure. Roads in the context of ongoing social and political change (e.g. that set in motion by the disintegration of the Soviet Union). Roads and colonialism. Their maintenance and decay. The role of human beings in the lives of roads, and the role of roads in human life. Roads as transitory objects: material, social and metaphorical. Roads that were once central and are now peripheral, and vice versa. Roads and spirituality: pilgrimages and shamanic journeys. The cultural meanings of roads. Roads that connect and roads that separate. Stories of people who interact with the road in their daily life. Roads and time; memories of roads. Roads and missed opportunities. Roads and dreams of a better life. Roads as objects of care and love. Neglected and unwanted roads.

We invite you to reflect artistically on      roads: on how they matter      to human and animal life; on the care and work they need in order to persist; how they alter and affect their surroundings; how they decay, transform, disintegrate and bleed into the landscape.

Our aim is to create an online exhibition and space dedicated to roads.

Organization details

The projects may be presented via virtual means or any other form of artistic expression possible online. The total grant fund available is 6000 Swiss francs; this figure will be divided between the successful proposals. The amount dedicated to one art project will range from 200 (for individual or small curatorial projects) to 800 Swiss francs (for collective projects or time consuming projects such as multimedia stories). These funds will be granted upon the submission of completed works, unless the material needs expressed in the application state otherwise (advance payment is only possible upon individual agreement).
