Eligibility:

Is it possible to distinguish between art and the artist? Do only meticulous cleaners safe us from unsubstantial art? How free can art be? Does the art scene need a radical clearing out? Is Cancel Culture a threat to art or are we all just too sensitive?

re:visionism is an exhibition that addresses those questions and the topic of historical revisionism from an interdisciplinary and boundary transcending point of view inspired by the debate initiated by Moshtari Hilal & Sinthujan Varatharajah about Germany's Nazi background, which manifests in the wealth of German corporations and institutions.

The exhibition aims to offer a critical debate about artists who profited from historical revisionism and whose works and lives are still trivialized and glorified.

Our Open Call invites artists to participate in this exhibition and submit either existing projects or ideas they'd like to realize.

The event is scheduled to take place in November in Wuppertal. Depending on the current situation it will either be shown at „kollektiv drei“ or online.

Furthermore, we are looking for someone whose work raises awareness about historical revisionism, and who'd like to share their knowledge in an (online) workshop. 

To break through patriarchal structures this Open Call is explicitely directed at WLINTA* and BIPoC artists.

Please send any questions or applications until October, 3rd, 2021 to: we.are.hysteria.wtf@gmail.com

______

Kann man Kunst und Künstler:in voneinander trennen? Schützen uns eventuell nur eifrige Reinigungskräfte vor inhaltsloser Kunst? Wie frei darf Kunst sein? Braucht die Kunst-Szene mal eine drastische Entrümpelung? Ist Cancel Culture eine Bedrohung für die Kunst oder sind wir alle einfach zu sensibel?

re:visionism soll eine Veranstaltung sein, die sich interdisziplinär und spartenübergreifend mit diesen Fragestellungen und dem Thema des Geschichtsrevisionismus' - unter anderem in Deutschland - befasst.

Ausschlag- und ideengebend war insbesondere die von Moshtari Hilal & Sinthujan Varatharajah

begonnene Debatte über Deutschlands Umgang mit dem eigenen Nazierbe, das sich vor Allem am Kapital deutscher Unternehmen zeigt.

Die Veranstaltung soll eine kritische Debatte um Künstler:innen ermöglichen, die in diesem System von Geschichtsrevisionismus profitiert haben, und deren Leben und Werk (beispielsweise trotz eindeutiger NS-Vergangenheit) auch heute noch weitestgehend unkritisch kommentiert, oder gar glorifiziert werden.

Mit diesem Open Call möchten wir Künstler:innen einladen, sich an der Ausstellung „re:visionism“ , die im November in Wuppertal stattfinden soll, zu beteiligen.

Wenn es die Corona-Richtlinien zulassen, wird die Ausstellung im "kollektiv drei" umgesetzt. Ansonsten weichen wir auf eine digitale Veranstaltung aus.

Wir suchen außerdem eine Person, die sich mit Geschichtsrevisionismus auseinander setzt und ihr Wissen in einem Workshop teilt. Dieser kann sowohl vor Ort, als auch online durchgeführt werden.

Um patriarchale Strukturen, speziell im Kunst- und Kulturbetrieb, zu durchbrechen, richtet sich dieser Aufruf an FLINTA*, Schwarze Künstler:innen und Künstler:innen of Color.

Wir freuen uns über Einreichungen bis zum 03.10.2021 an we.are.hysteria.wtf@gmail.com

CALL TO ARTISTS

Artist Lab: Art Meets History in New Mexico

A four-week, virtual/online lab in March & April 2021 with 516 ARTS, Kolaj Institute, and the Albuquerque Museum Photography Archives

Deadline to apply: 28 February 2021

Apply HERE.

Visual artists with an established practice are invited to apply for Artist Lab: Art Meets History in New Mexico, a four-week program designed to foster the integration of history into contemporary art practices. The Lab is presented as a collaboration between 516 ARTSKolaj Institute, and Albuquerque Museum’s photo archives. 

The Lab looks at how our divergent histories of race, conflict, and colonialism inform how we imagine our futures. Participating artists are asked to work from their own people’s history, to confront that history, and to imagine a future that offers justice, fairness, and support for all people. A goal of the lab is a proposal for a body of artwork to be considered for a group exhibition at 516 ARTS in 2022. 

Race, conflict, and colonialism are themes that run through the history of America and while these topics inform national mythologies they often go unexplored and unimagined in our civic discourse. People often operate with a different history than that of their neighbors. How we understand our divergent histories of race, conflict, and colonialism inform how we imagine our futures. For artists to speak to society, we must raise up all the histories of our community. 

Using the photography archives of the Albuquerque Museum and other historical resources in the community, the focus of this project is the multiple histories of different peoples who have made what we now call New Mexico and the surrounding land their home. 

The Artist Lab equips artists with tools and strategies for picking up the unfinished work of history and speaking to contemporary civic discourse around social, economic, and environmental issues. Through interactive online sessions, collections research, and visits with historians, archivists, and curators, artists explore their process and practice; present a slideshow of their work; receive supportive, critical, curatorial feedback about their ideas; and discuss strategies for making art that speaks to the contemporary moment.

Over the course of four weeks, artists will participate in online meetings, engage in one-on-one sessions with faculty, and complete independent assignments. Sessions are one hour to an hour-and-a-half long and include slideshows, artist presentations, and discussions. Guest artists share their practices and lead discussions. Specialists introduce participants to collections and archives and speak to the histories of New Mexico’s multiple peoples.

Artists complete the Lab with a project proposal for a group exhibition at 516 ARTS in 2022. The exhibition will give audiences an opportunity to consider how our contemporary discourse is a product of multiple histories in a constant state of negotiation with one another. Our understanding of history shapes how we live in the present. The exhibition is curated by L. Kasimu Harris, Alicia Inez Guzmán, and Ric Kasini Kadour. 516 ARTS has dedicated a fund to commission artworks for the exhibition, in part, to artists who successfully complete the Lab. 

WHO IS THIS FOR?

The Artist Lab is intended for self-motivated artists, at any stage in their career, who want to develop a practice of working with historic sites or history associations to create and present art that embeds itself in non-traditional spaces and speaks to a general community about contemporary issues. The Lab is open to artists anywhere in the world. Artists from Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian communities are encouraged to apply. 

COST

The cost of the Lab is $750 per artist; however, no artist will be turned away for lack of funds and the organizers will work with artists to build a financial aid package. 

516 ARTS is providing a limited number of scholarships to artists from New Mexico, artists from Mexico whose work focuses on the US/Mexico border, and artists who are Native American, Alaskan Native, or First Nations.

Eligibility:

Curator - Aidan Cowling (CANADA)

In a short amount of time, the Internet and digital technologies have dramatically  changed the way we live our lives, and we are beginning to register and quantify how  our daily contact with the digital world has altered the archive. How is technology being  mobilized today to preserve and present archive and history? This residency invites 

participants to experience ANIMA Casa Rural through the lens of the archive, and  consider how can the historical archive be used to find a way forward and makes sense  of today. 

Throughout the residency we will visit The National Archives of Mexico, Archivo de  Instrumentos Públicos, Archivo del Arzobispado de Guadalajara, Archivo General de  Notarías del Estado de Jalisco, and various archives in the surrounding area. Studio  visits with archivists and local artists, will give participants the opportunity to explore  these archives and further their own research. This residency will develop terms for  working in the archive, and explore examples from contemporary practices that we can  deployed when engaging with archival materials. Workshops on the farm will consider  different ways of digitizing the archive, as well as explore experimental ways that the  archive can be used in your artistic practice like digital editing, green screen,  performance and installation. Participants are encouraged to apply to this residency with  a particular theme or focus they wish to research in the archives.
