OPEN CALL: SAAS-FEE SUMMER INSTITUTE OF ART BERLIN. Art and the Poetics of Praxis in Cognitive Capitalism. DEADLINE JUNE 19, 2018.

Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art (SFSIA) is a nomadic, intensive summer academy with shifting programs in contemporary critical theory. SFSIA stresses an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the relationship between art and politics. This year, in addition to the Berlin academy, we are hosted by Otis College of Art and Design at their Los Angeles campus with participation of the MA Aesthetics and Politics in the School of Critical Studies, CalArts. The program runs two weeks and is structured with half-day seminars, deep readings, and workshops. In the evening SFSIA holds a lecture series, which is open to the public. It is an exciting, rigorous environment to learn in.

Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art | Berlin, 2018 is titled Art and the Poetics of Praxis in Cognitive Capitalism. The seminar will revisit pressing topics of past programs (such as estrangement and individuation) in order to consider the potential healing of a general intellect, now fragmented, dispossessed and restricted by the power of virtuality and techno-linguistic governance. As Franco Berardi has observed, the rising generation is the first to have learned more words from a machine than from their mothers; the result is —in a sense quite different from that intended by Rimbaud— an immense dérèglement de tous les sens or deregulation of signification: a break between meaning and the body. Disempathy is one result. In The Uprising, Berardi calls on poetry to revitalize and reactivate the precarious social body and reconnect a collective intelligence by way of forging singular voices and autonomous resonances. Berardi’s call to poiesis is where this year’s Institute begins.

ENGAGED, ACTIVE, AWARE_WOMEN’S PERSPECTIVES NOW. DEADLINE: JUNE 15, 2018.

ORGAN VIDA International Photography Organization based in Croatia invites artists from all over the world who work in the medium of photography as such or in an expanded form, video and sound, installation, collage to apply to this open call and respond to the given topic: Engaged, Active, Aware — Women’s Perspectives Now. The selected artists will exhibit their work at the main curated exhibition during the jubilee 10th ORGAN VIDA — International Photography Festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Sep 12 – 30, 2018.

In the time of post-capitalist global turmoil, technological advancements, strengthening of the right-wing extremism, the growing influence of the religion that limits women rights again, and the semblance of democracy in the 21st century, we are facing a situation in which women must fight anew for the rights that had been won long ago. In the midst of initiatives such as #MeToo, Free the Nipple, The Future is Female, and phenomena such as the female gaze, it is necessary to re-examine the current role of photography in representing and articulating women’s experiences, and to critically rethink how digital culture is transforming feminist approaches to the image.

Members of an international jury will have the task of evaluating and selecting 20 artworks that address contemporary challenges, issues and perspectives related to this open call. In particular, the emphasis will be on the inclusion and appreciation of diverse attitudes, different cultural and geographic context that can jointly, in the framework of the curatorial concept, provide an overview of the current situation in the global socio-political and feminist scene. We therefore invite all interested artists who work in the medium of photography as such or in an expanded form, video, or installation to apply to this open call and respond to the given topic. The selected artists will exhibit their work at the 10th Organ Vida Photography Festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Sep 12 – 30, 2018.
Submission deadline: 15 June, 2018.

Fees: 30€ per project, 20€ for Balkan countries (ex Yugoslavia). Artist from countries in the Balkan region (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo,the Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia) have a reduced entry fee. Applicants must have a voucher to get the 10€ discount.

WANDERLUST. PHOTOGRAPHIC ART. DEADLINE MAY, 27.

Call for entries to: photographers and photographic artists with images that are dedicated to “Wanderlust”. This exhibition will be on view from June 20th until August, 5th, 2018, in Galerie Sehnsucht.

What we are looking for, is artistic photography showing the feeling of Wanderlust.

Wanderlust is a German loanword, known to many people, for most of us have this irresistibly strong desire to travel, to wander and to rove about. Although the word dates back to the half of the nineteenth century, wandering became fashionable around 1800. The French philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau urged people to get back to nature, and in Germany a whole bunch of ‘Sturm und Drang’ poets strolled about nature, Goethe ahead, to express their modern consciousness of life. For life was heavily shaken up by all the wars and revolutions that time and hardly anything was still the same. Nature, travel, the great unknown gave way to a new pace in life where one could slow down and escape everyday hectic. Travelling by foot lead to an encounter with nature that was both physical and sensual. Like a pilgrimage, one could meet the sublime in nature and in oneself.

The Jury: will be assisted by Eli Dijkers. He will be the guest curator for this exhibition.
