Unearthing the Archive

Share

Country:

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.

THE QUEER ARCHIVE FESTIVAL 2021

Share

Theme:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Introduced to the Athenian cultural scene in 2020 by the creative platform The Queer Archive with the support of Onassis Stegi, “The Queer Archive Festival” is looking forward to a strong comeback in May 2021 to celebrate the rich and vibrant queer culture of the city of Athens and beyond.

The second edition of “The Queer Archive Festival” will take place in a variety of traditional and alternative spaces within the centre of the city. In recent years, the Greek capital has grown into a genuine queer arts kernel. This burgeoning queer art scene does not only challenge dominant narratives, but also revels in the margins and the growing popularity of the fringes.

We invite submissions from contemporary artists, creators, scholars and curators working with moving image, performance, installations and any creative medium. Particularly, we seek radical, engaging, provocative, playful and visceral artworks dealing with gender identity in most different ways. The submissions can be of already produced works or original proposals specifically for “The Queer Archive Festival” and have to be created by, for, about, or of interest to queer audiences. We do not suggest a specific theme for our festival editions, so that all applicants feel free to communicate their ideas, no holds barred. Each artist tells a personal story and we wish to provide a free platform for all.

We are closely monitoring the Covid-19 virus guidelines and its impact on the festival circuit. The Queer Archive is bound to comply with any new protective measures against Covid-19 transmission.

Queer Body Horror

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Deriving from the idea of Judith Butler's unfulfilled promise of writing about “the place of sharp machines” and “the technology of the knife in debates about intersexuality and transsexuality alike,” the publication "Queer Body Horror" aims to "force an encounter with the real of the biological body and the difference it introduces into the world, the real of the sexed body, that exceeds the being of the phenomenological lived body and the discursive body, while somehow still being intertwined with these other two bodies...". To "force encounters with real and nonhuman objects and actors that cannot be reduced to correlates of human thought, language, perception, or use but that have to be approached in their own autonomous being to properly be thought": a horrifying thought, so to say. The publication argues and explores the validity of the hypothesis that there is neither Object-oriented Ontology nor Speculative Realism without Queer Theory. As such, the idea of 'Queer Body Horror' that Throne Room would love to see you explore doesn't necessarily describe the state of a body, but rather deals with the conditions it faces. It reflects on the method according to which queer space is being created in normative systems, what performative practices a queer body can and needs to adhere to in order to function therein, or to dream up a utopian or nightmarish scenario about queer bodies and "sharp machines".

CRUISING DYSTOPIA OPEN CALL

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Nouvel Organon is pleased to invite emerging and established artists, art collectives, group of artists, architects, writers, performers, philosophers, social workers and everyone otherwise involved in contemporary art to submit a project for an opportunity to participate in the exhibition 'Cruising Dystopia' which will take place October 16-19 in Berlin, Germany.

Gay cruising areas, based on utopian ideas of freedom and a sense of finally being oneself, can otherwise turn into dystopian spaces, where one comes face-to-face with the limits and borders of that same society. The act of cruising is defined by a longing for intimacy, precisely in the lack thereof from that other “world” that is so violently exclusionary.

Is the word combination cruising dystopia therefore an oxymoron, or not? With 'Cruising Dystopia' Nouvel Organon invites you to submit work related to the subject from its different viewpoints without limitation to its shape or form.

Artists are invited to submit up to 5 pieces of work, with an artist statement of max. 250 words and a 1-page CV. Projects are selected based on relevance to the theme, quality and artistic integrity. Participation in the exhibition is through a selection process done by Nouvel Organon and a partner jury.

As a non-profit organisation, there is little to no budget for production of new work, but there is for installment of existing work(s). Expenses of shipping work to and from Berlin are for the artists themselves. If work sells, the artist gets the 100 percent—Nouvel Organon takes no commission costs. We also take no entrance fees to at least make participation more democratic.

Deadline: 28 September 2020 on 12am GMT+1

Exhibition: October 16-19
Berlin, Germany
