Onassis AiR Open Call 2020/21: The Infinite Rehearsal in Four Movements 
Application deadline: April 24, 2020, 5pm (GMT+3)

ONASSIS AiR, the (inter)national artistic research residency program in Athens, invites artists, curators, designers, activists, collectives, educators, lawyers, performance and film makers, economists, agitators, philosophers, and other practitioners to apply for 2020/21 Open Call: The Infinite Rehearsal in Four Movements, which runs between September 2020 and May 2021.

Fall 2020: Identities Annihilated
Movement I: September 14-October 25, 2020
Movement II: November 2-December 13, 2020

Spring 2021: Everything Equally Evolved
Movement III: February 17-March 31, 2021
Movement IV: April 7-May 19, 2021

Inspired by the title of a novel by Wilson Harris, The Infinite Rehearsal in Four Movements is conceived as a collective program focused on two research areas we find urgent to explore. Each Movement Group of five to six participants will engage in a collective “rehearsal,” bringing their own “instrument” in the form of their existing practice that clearly engages with one of the research topic areas in a radical way.

Fall 2020 & Spring 2021 Movement Groups will have one convener each—a practitioner in their own right, with an in-depth knowledge of the research topic explored, who will provide a framework for the two Movement Groups each will convene, in the form of possible readings, meetings with other practitioners, research trips, workshops, tools, etc.

Fall 2020: Identities Annihilated will be convened by performance theorist Hypatia Vourloumis. During Movement I & Il, we will, following Edouard Glissant, seek to attend to the ways in which identities cannot be reduced or made transparent. We will ask: ‘how are we all entangled, in the quantum physics’ sense, in a planetary "difference without separability" as Denise Ferreira da Silva writes? How are we always already “singular-plural” (Jean-Luc Nancy), in the elsewhere and otherwise? How can we destroy the fixed notions and categories of separation inherent to racial capitalism through the aesthetics of a transformative mode of history and time, through the aesthetic imagination and its materializations as transformative and abolitionist force?

Spring 2021: Everything Equally Evolved will be convened by writer and artist James Bridle in collaboration with Vessel. During Movement III & IV we will collectively explore some of these, and other questions: How can the tools we have at hand be reimagined to bring us down to Earth? How do we reassert the importance of community while building solidarity with the more-than-human world? What would it look like to take the intelligence of animals, plants, and ecosystems as seriously as we take the intelligence of smart machines? What is the relationship between distributed networks and distributed power? How do we practically engage with sensoriums other than our own? And what is vital about doing so here and now, on the edge of the Mediterranean and other, possible futures?

The working language of Fall 2020 & Spring 2021 research groups is English. All accepted participants will receive a research fee, housing & travel to/from Athens if from abroad, collective research budget, and other resources.

The House That Became a Home (2019/20)
Established by the Onassis Foundation in September 2019, Onassis AiR opened the doors of an empty building in the center of Athens to house a community of peers from Greece and abroad. Today, after six months of inhabiting this space, filling it with hours of thinking, talking, reading, testing, and making as well as eating together, Onassis AiR has become a home. This house now belongs to more than 30 artists, curators and art practitioners, who between September 2019 and June 2020, are supported through four existing modules: The Critical Practices Program, (Inter)national Artistic & Curatorial Research Program,  Exchange Residencies Program, and Emergency Fellowships Program. 

Onassis AiR team: Ash Bulayev, Georgia Giannakea, Myrto Katsimicha and Nefeli Myrodia.

AiR2020 : Following a successful pilot programme in 2019,  ŻfinMalta - National Dance Company, is excited to offer 3 residencies between the months of March & June 2020.  

 

Located in the Mediterranean, Malta is a bilingual country, speaking both English and Maltese, with year-round sunshine.  Within this unique setting, and based at the ŻfinMalta studios on Valletta’s Grand Harbour - one of the most scenic harbours in the world - the National Dance Company offers national and international dance-makers a space for research and dialogue.  ŻfinMalta is looking forward to welcoming both experienced and emerging, Europe-based dance artists currently undertaking choreographic research to develop and explore their work further in a new context, providing the time and space for focus on the creation and development of work.

 

WHO ARE THE RESIDENCIES FOR?

ZfinMalta, is offering three residencies between April and June 2020 for local and Europe-based dance practitioners to further develop their choreographic research/practice. Each residency will run no longer than a week

 

These residency programmes are designed for choreographers, regularly creating work, who need to carry out research which will push the boundaries of their practice.

 

Choreographers from all dance backgrounds are encouraged to apply; whether their research is interdisciplinary, community-based, or dance practice based.

 

WHAT WILL BE PROVIDED?

ŻfinMalta will host the selected artists in their studios in the island’s capital, Valletta, which enjoy the inspiring view of the Grand Harbour, defined by a coastline of forts and churches in yellow limestone.

 

Made up of two studios, ŻfinMalta welcomes selected artists to work in their space between 10am - 6pm. 

 

ŻfinMalta studios are equipped with a sound system, air conditioning, storage space, bathrooms, showers and kitchen facilities as well as WiFi access.

 

We regret that ŻfinMalta’s studio is currently not wheelchair accessible.

 

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM RESIDENCY ARTISTS?

An informal presentation or sharing of work in a format which suits the artist’s practice. The audience will be facilitated by ZfinMalta and the approach discussed with the artist. The company believes that this interaction with an audience is fundamental in the research stages of creating work.

 

Permission for ZfinMalta to film agreed parts of the residency

 

Inclusion of ZfinMalta logos and/or  ZfinMalta word credit on publicity (print and digital) for any future work which is developed from research undertaken during this residency.

50% of the token will be offered upon the signature of the residency agreement with the respective artists, whilst the other half of the token will be presented upon the start of the residency, both on presentation of invoice.

 

Local artists who may not need the token in order to cover flights and accommodation expenses, are asked to outline how the token would be used.  Artists may want to bring in other people to explore their research on or even bring in other people to document their process. Such applications of the token are eligible as long as they are included in the budget within the application form.

Eligibility:

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 encourage to apply to this residency with a particular theme or focus they wish to research in the archives.
