Open Call for Artists, COP26 Green Zone Exhibition, WaterAid

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

We are inviting artists to submit proposals for a visually arresting exhibition to be presented in WaterAid’s exhibition space at COP26 (Glasgow), responding to the theme of ‘The climate change and water story, as told by youth’. We believe it is essential to engage young people on issues relating to the future of their planet and to use our platforms to further amplify their voices.

You will be required to design a set of workshops that WaterAid will be running with young people in October to capture their responses to the water and climate theme. The exhibition must in some way incorporate the outputs of these workshops. We are also looking for the exhibition to drive further understanding through participation – we are interested to hear your ideas around how people could interact with the exhibition either physically on the day, or through a digital element. This is also something WaterAid are happy to work with you on and develop together once the concept is formed.

Our ambition is for the exhibition to provoke dialogues that deepen awareness and understanding of the links between water and the climate crisis. We hope that a powerful presentation that foregrounds youth voices will inspire attendees to continue the conversation beyond COP.

There will be many organisations exhibiting at COP26 with similar climate messaging – we need to cut through the noise with something unique and attention grabbing.

Water is not always seen as linked to climate change, so we need to deliver that message in a clear and effective way that positions WaterAid as a significant and relevant actor in the climate space.

Expressions of interest no longer than 1 sheet of A4

We are interested in hearing about similar projects you have worked on or are currently working on, specifically to do with climate change and/or work involving working with young people.

Endless Summer

Eligibility:

Keywords:

Exhibition 15.10. -10.12.2021

The permanent high over Europe creates vacation joy at home and crop failures due to drought.  Will the sensual desire for paradise be fulfilled? One enjoys lots of sun, always being outside and vacation at home.  A hedonistic dream.

However, the climate crisis is felt ambivalently. “Higher fuel prices are felt immediately in the wallet, but climate change comes insidiously.  “Heat deaths, devastation from heavy rains in 2021, fires worldwide from drought. In Canada, people are afraid of summer because of fires.

Continuing on without personal and political change is becoming more and more difficult. People hold on to fossil comfort, suppress the crisis, point to other countries that should change.

Application deadline 10.9.2021

In a public call for applications, we invite artists internationally to submit contributions for the theme described above for a group exhibition in our exhibition spaces.
Disciplines: Object, sculpture, installation, photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, video with credits, sound is possible. A performative contribution such as performance, VJ or similar to vernissage, artist talk or finissage is desired.

Since the corona crisis still requires restrictions, we will adjust the exhibition organization and program accordingly. We plan analog and digital, commented video tour, online gallery, dialogical and video events .

Artists whose works do not meet the announced theme will be jury out.

International works: Unfortunately, we can no longer accept packages from non-EU countries. The processing and communication effort, the shipping costs, the transit times and the difficulty of timely delivery in Berlin were too great. We are happy to accept letters and videos from non-EU countries.

We offer exhibition space with equipment, bar, advertising by mail and div. websites and social media and web and print flyers, organization of the work texts, the lecture, the documentation.

We do not take any fee for application, exhibition etc. We are a free, self-organized project space and work on a voluntary basis. For sent works we ask that senders include return postage. Unfortunately there is no budget for production, further technical equipment, transport and insurance (the room is technically secured). We expect good cooperation and agree on rules (gg3 rules regeln 2020) of cooperation.

Individual artists or existing artist groups can apply online with a maximum of three works.

Presence after lockdown: Presence for regional artists is desired for vernissage and the artist talk, as well as attending at least one date of the exhibition.

Virtual Reality Climate Change Memorial

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The ‘Virtual Reality Climate Change Memorial’ is set in a post-2050 future where some of the worst climate predictions have come true. Species going extinct, constant “natural disasters”, extreme weather conditions, cities drowning, millions displaced or homeless, food scarcity, extreme air pollution making it hard to breathe, and more. The memorial is a virtual space to grieve all that has been lost, away from the physical world that is in turmoil. As well as this function, considering the contemporary audience, the space also hopes to inform about climate change using factual evidence and compelling stories based on truth with the intent to ‘move’ the audience emotionally and to action. At its center is a graveyard of 100 entities predicted to be lost by the year 2050, around which is a growing collection of creative responses to the idea detailed above. 

Going forward I would like to open the space up to include creative responses to this idea from artists and creatives worldwide as this is a global issue of which disastrous effects can already be seen around the world. If you are interested in submitting some work for this space please read the details in the link provided and get in touch with any questions.

Wirtualne Muzeum Antropocenu announces an international open call for our first exhibition “Człowiek! Tu byłem!” (eng. Human was here!)

From November 26 – December 20, 2020 we invite artists — regardless of background, education and nationality to submit works to our inaugural exhibition.

“Człowiek! Tu byłem!” is a visual and conceptual exploration of the Anthropocene - the era of the human, its complexities and contradictions. What does it feel like? What does it sound like? What does it look and taste like? Engage your senses and dive into what it means to live in and experience the Antropocene.

All visual, literary, and sound works are welcome.

 

Wirtualne Muzeum Antropocenu (eng. Virtual Museum of the Anthropocene) is the first of its kind fully virtual cultural institution examining and documenting the nuances of the human era - the Anthropocene. We reflect upon and examine the environmental changes triggered by human activity as well as the relationship between humans, nature and technology. The interdisciplinary approach is at the core of our work, allowing us to combine the freedom of creative expression with the scientific and technological innovations and breakthroughs in our explorations.

1.5 degrees

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Exhibition 15.1.2021 – 12.3.2021

The 1.5-degree target is understood to mean the goal of limiting the man-made global temperature increase due to the greenhouse effect to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2100 from the level before the start of industrialization. Almost all the states of the world have signed a treaty with the Paris Convention, according to which they intend to make efforts to achieve the 1.5 degree target. Climate researchers doubt that we will reach this goal, we would already be at 2 degrees. There is a lack of political will. Fridays for Future are fighting to keep the contract.

What has to change to reach the goal? Researchers have developed scenarios that show ways. For example, the price of CO2 increases to 100€/ton. Renewable energies like wind power, solar energy are used instead of fossil fuels. We humans live well and in a climate-friendly way.

Which pictures do artists create on this topic? We are looking forward to your exciting submissions!
