Open Call for Submissions for the Art Book

Open Call for Submissions for the Collective Marvelous Artists Book Series No: 5th. 

Surreal reality

We'd like to suggest you apply to our open call. Your artwork can be displayed in a small venue in Berlin, in the heart of a hip district Friedrichshain.

The topic states "Surreal Reality". What is it for you? Maybe it looks familiar to what we know, but some details make it weird? Or maybe it is a micro-world that is far from what we see every day? Or it is an imaginary world full of creatures beyound "normality"?

Strange Figurations

Strange Figurations is an international, thematic group exhibition curated and hosted by the Limner Gallery. The exhibition is open to all interpretations of the concept, Strange Figurations, which would include surreal, visionary and generally all out of the ordinary figurative art. The show is open to all media, techniques and styles from realist to expressionistic. 72" maximum dimension. The exhibition will be held at the Limner Gallery, October 12 - November 5, 2022. Deadline June 30, 2022. Entry information at:

There is no limit to the number of images an artist can submit. Please visit the website to submit your images.

The Uncanny

When the familiar becomes unfamiliar, we call it uncanny. That is to say, when something almost satisfies our brain’s search for human likeness, but falls short by a small margin, we experience a characteristic sense of unease at the sight of it. This is our understanding of what it is about realistic androids and almost-perfect-but-not-quite CGI that makes our skin crawl, and it stems from Freudian theory surrounding the German word “unheimlich.” Freud tells us that the unheimlich, or unhomely, is our experience when confronted with something that is like home to us, but is made wrong somehow. How do you incorporate the unheimlich, or uncanny, into your artwork?
