Call for submissions: The Multiple eXposure Project Zine 1.0. Deadline: December 31, 2014

The Multiple eXposure Project is a multimedia, multi/trans/inter-disciplinary artistic practice and research-based initiative that explores the many layers of image-making, participatory photography, visual ethnography, and performative encounter(s) between the image and the spectator.

The theme of our upcoming zine is “Self-as-Subject”, an exploration of the “self” and its manifold permutations – its presence, identity, representation, liminality, and (dis)embodiment – in this day and age of digital madness, hyperreality and mobility.

The zine is multimedia so they are accepting text and image-based submissions related to the theme in any format imaginable such as: articles, essays, reviews, short stories, poetry, interviews, photographs (film or analogue), visual narratives, videos, digital art, illustrations, cartoons, mixed media, collages, experimental pieces, etc. Collaborative projects are very much welcome. Multiple entries are also accepted. Digital and printed copies of the zine will be released.

Some notes to remember:

–   Please include your name, short profile, country of origin, and blog/website (if applicable) in your email.

–   Photo submissions in jpeg format must include a title and description.

–   When necessary, please follow the proper citations (MLA style) in article submissions.

Deadline: December 31, 2014

Please email your submissions to: themultipleexposureproject@gmail.com.

FORMAT FESTIVAL 2015 – Exposure. OPEN CALL. Deadline: October 1, 2014

Photography was once considered the most accurate way to record truth. The photograph acted as a solid piece of evidence; indisputable proof of something, someone or somewhere. Since its discovery, photography has been employed as a silent witness to ideas, capturing events and representing a trace of the world.

Today, every two minutes, we take as many photos as the entirety of humanity took during the 1800s. On a daily basis, we use photography to evidence our lives; routines, friends, meals, encounters. Millions of seemingly insignificant moments are recorded and shared online, creating inconclusive portraits of individuals, places and events.

We can no longer consider a photograph an evidential document in every case. It can equally misrepresent reality as much as it reveals truths; questioning the historic phrase “the camera never lies”.

They are interested in the evidence of your ideas, your lives and the lives of others, today and throughout history. They are inviting submissions which explore the boundaries of photography and its connection to their festival theme, EVIDENCE, in original and genuine ways.

They are looking for submissions from across the medium of photography and beyond for the next edition of FORMAT International Photography Festival, taking place from 13th March – 12th April 2015, in Derby, UKSubmissions are welcome from artists/photographers, curators, collectives, archives, independent publishers and performers.

There are opportunities to show different kinds of works: wall based, installation, public space, screen based, interactive, digital, participatory, workshop and event based. Tell us more in the application form! All we ask is that you connect with the theme and photography/still image.

They are open to broad interpretations of the theme.

Think openly about the definition of the theme and you are welcome to take it in any direction you think relates.

Submissions costs £15.

Deadline: October 1, 2014

OPEN CALL FOR ARTIST: ​The Penitentiary: Battery Project

The Penitentiary: Battery Project is holding an open call for local artists for its August 1st opening.

They are looking for artists who are interested in transforming Patarei Prison, located in Tallinn, Estonia, while still reflecting upon the space’s past.

The Penitentiary is a collaborative umbrella project by artists Marina Andrijcic-Ojeda and Catarina Ferreira. Under this title the artists will operate a series of independent, site-specific art exhibitions to take place in abandoned war-era prisons throughout Eastern Europe. They will create personal works as well as curate that of other international artists to instill an open dialogue of national memory through creative action. With this unity of worldwide culture, the project will explore what it means to be democratic; to possess the privilege of free speech; to live a life where expression is encouraged and government is overtaken by the hands of those who thrive in these same freedoms.
As a span of dictators and regimes have occupied this region for hundreds of years, in present day the project will shed light on each prison’s overhead political history concurrent to its state of physical abandon. By hosting this series in the very prisons haunted by the Communist era, The Penitentiary will gain first-hand experience of the aftermath impacting nearby communities and their landscapes. The project invites the community to reconnect with these reinvented spaces and introduces the use and availability of unrestricted public art as a means of closure and new purpose.

The Battery Project is The Penitentiary’s first exhibition and will take place at Patarei Prison, located in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. The Battery Project will accompany Estonia’s upcoming art scene to expand creative action.

With largely-projected videos obscuring intimacies of human relationships and the spaces they are shown, experimental sound installations moving through echoing rooms, dangling sheets of paper casting shadows of hand-cut pattern, and angular light sculptures illuminating colored air, The Battery Project will showcase the contrasting translations of Patarei’s history from the hands and minds of multiple artists.

In addition, The Penitentiary will host a program of supporting events to coincide with the exhibition. These events will offer public engagement, education and entertainment to Tallinn’s community with featured screenings, interactive installation, opening and closing receptions and beyond.

All mediums are encouraged to apply, but preference will be given to sculptural installations..

OPEN CALL: Sketch commission for large-scale public artwork in Central Stockholm. Deadline: August 8, 2014

Stockholm County Council invites professional artists to apply for a sketch assignment for a public art commission at the upper part of the façade of Building 74 in the New Technology, Quarter, to be built in the hospital area at Södersjukhuset.

The Stockholm South General Hospital, or Sődersjukhuset, is located in the heart of the city. It will be modernised and expanded to cope with the growing population of Stockholm. The New Technology Quarter, a building with an area of 11,000 square metres, is scheduled to be completed in 2017. It will become a focal point in the hospital and its adjacent residential neighborhoods, and will form part of the Sődermalm cityscape.

The sketch commission should lead to an artwork that is characterised by strong artistic value and bears complex content. It should lend itself to thought and gives the site character. The finalised artwork should also be permanent. The finalised artwork will be an integral part of the architecture and its immediate environments. Artists are invited to shape the prefabricated cast concrete elements that form the basis of the facades’ surface. It is possible to add other types of materials, as well as lighting, to the artwork. The artwork should preferably be visible both day and night.

Three artists will be invited for sketch commission. Based on the sketches, one artist will be selected to carry out the commission and finalise the artwork.

Sketch assignment: 50,000 SEK (5.416,50 €) excluding VAT.

The cost range for the performance of the public art commission, including the sketch assignment, is calculated at 3,050,000 SEK (330.406,50 €) excluding VAT. Everything connected with the execution of the artwork and costs associated with completion, such as the artist’s own project planning time, material costs, mounting arrangements, subcontractors, travel, transport, insurance, the artist’s own fees for executing the work and artistic fees, must fit within that range. An environmental check-list and maintenance instructions are also included in the artist’s obligations. Advice for maintenance and arrangements for maintenance must also be indicated in the budget. The basic cost of the white matrix cast precast concrete panels is paid by the construction project.

OPEN CALL FROM EMERGENCY! Deadline: July 25, 2014

—– English version (version français ci-dessous)—–

The EMERGENCY! collective is a a team of three curators and researchers in the field of art created in 2011. They conceive of artistic and curatorial practices as possibilities for intermediation and connection; the creative act is for them a catalyst for links among social, artistic and cultural communities, aiming for a subjective reinvention of life.

They have been invited for a residency at the Fonderie Kugler in Geneva from 7 to 18 October 2014, and they wish to seize this occasion to further the development of their ideas. The basis of their collective is the abolition of hierarchies and disciplinary frontiers; this strategy seeks to bring to light pluralistic forms of collaboration. In this spirit they are launching a call for projects to try and produce during these eleven days a space for independent culture, where dialogue and shared experience are at the heart of each moment.

They invite you to propose a project that could be developed in the course of two or three days, during which the public and other participants in the global event could assist and eventually intervene in the different stages of its realization. Proposals for one-time interventions such as film projections or ephemeral events linked to EMERGENCY! will also be taken into consideration.

EMERGENCY! invokes urgency, but it is also linked to the figure of what emerges. The present moment through which our society is passing is marked by an uncertainty and melancholy produced by the collective experience of successive crisis. The new institutional sensibility towards suffering makes us understand that the economic crisis is the cause for most pathologies. Moreover, the individuation of action accentuates the pressures on subjectivities. Society is perceived as an experience of unpredictable change, without a collective project, leaving the individual to his/her autonomy.

For them, all of these circumstances are signs of urgency; it is a call for immediate action. They feel it is necessary and pressing to move toward the emergence of new ways of being together and of being with the world. It is about bringing out new phenomena or making a new concept appear, in conditions where such an occurrence would not have been predictable. “To live means to be cruel and ruthless with everything that is old and weak in us”. Why not assume a condition of lightness, another state of mind, the same condition that one reaches at certain fleeting moments in life such as when dancing with abandon?

If you feel an affinity with what they have described in these few lines, send them a diagram/outline/text describing what you would like to do, as well as a portfolio with  some examples of your work to

emergencykugler2014@gmail.com.

Applications will be received until 25 July 2014.

People selected for EMERGENCY! ♯2 will be provided with accommodation and hospitality during their stay.

 

—– Version en français —– (english version above)

EMERGENCY! collectif est une équipe de trois curatrices et chercheuses en art. Elles conçoivent les pratiques artistiques et curatoriales comme une possibilité d’intermédiation et de connexion. La création est pour elles un catalyseur de liens entre des communautés artistiques, sociales et culturelles, qui vise à une réinvention personnelle de la vie.

Invitées en résidence à la Fonderie Kugler à Genève du 7 au 18 octobre 2014, elles veulent saisir cette occasion pour continuer à développer leurs idées. Le fondement de leur collectif est l’abolition des hiérarchies et des frontières disciplinaires, stratégie qui cherche à mettre en lumière des formes plurielles de collaboration. C’est pourquoi elles lancent un appel à projets pour tenter de produire pendant ces onze jours un espace de culture indépendant, où le dialogue et le partage seraient au coeur de chaque instant.

Elles vous invitent à proposer un projet qui se déroulerait sur deux ou trois jours, auquel le public et les autres participants au projet global pourraient assister et éventuellement intervenir lors des différentes instances de la réalisation. Cependant, des propositions ponctuelles comme une projection de film ou tout autre évènement éphémère en lien avec Emergency pourront bien sûr être retenues.

EMERGENCY ! veut dire urgence, mais se réfère aussi à l’idée d’émergence. Le moment actuel que notre société traverse est marqué par l’incertitude et la mélancolie du vécu collectif des crises successives. La nouvelle sensibilité institutionnelle à la souffrance fait comprendre que la plupart des pathologies sont dues à la crise économique. Ensuite, l’individualisation de l’action accentue les pressions sur les sujets. La société est perçue comme expérience du changement imprévisible, sans projet collectif, laissant l’individu à son autonomie.

Pour leurs, tout ceci marque une urgence qui appelle à l’action immédiate, elles ressentent comme nécessaire l’émergence de nouvelles formes de l’être ensemble, mais aussi de l’être avec le monde. Il s’agit de la mise en évidence de nouveaux phénomènes ou l’apparition d’un concept nouveau, dans des conditions qui ne le laissaient pas prévoir. « Vivre veut dire être cruel et impitoyable contre tout ce qui est vieux et faible en nous ». Pourquoi ne pas adopter une condition de légèreté, un état d’esprit autre, celui qu’on arrive à atteindre à certains moments furtifs, comme par exemple lorsqu’on danse?

Si vous observez et ressentez une affinité avec ce qu’elles developpent dans ces quelques lignes, envoyez une esquisse/schéma/texte de ce que vous aimeriez faire, ainsi qu’un portfolio avec quelques exemples de votre travail à l’adresse suivante:

emergencykugler2014@gmail.com.

Les candidatures seront acceptées jusqu’au 25 juillet.

Les personnes sélectionnées pour EMERGENCY! ♯2 pourront bénéficier d’un hébergement/hospitalité durant leur séjour.

LAND-SHAPE: Open Call for Land Art. Deadline: November 1, 2014

LAND-SHAPE, Land Art North Denmark invites artists, designers, architects, scientists and entrepreneurs to submit proposals for visionary, site-specific, Land Art for Northern Jutland.

Key information:
– 10 winning projects will be selected
– 10.000,- DKK (1.350 EUR) in order to participate in the LAND-SHAPE festival 2015 with a conceptual representation of a site specific land art piece for North Jutland
– 10 day stay in Denmark, highlighting the winners at the LAND-SHAPE Land Art North Denmark Festival June 2015 where further development and actual realization of the projects will be investigated, negotiated and planned
– LAND-SHAPE festival Prize: 50.000,- DKK (EUR 6.700 EUR)
– LAND-SHAPE public choice Prize: 25.000.DKK (3.300 EUR)
– Realization of a site specific land art piece in North Jutland, Denmark including help for matchmaking in Denmark with professionals, assistants, materials etc. during the period June 2015 – December 2016.

LAND-SHAPE aims at establishing innovative and cutting-edge, site specific, land art works, for the northern region of Denmark: North Jutland. The project calls for land art proposals in a widened artistic perspective: Investigates the potentials of contemporary land art and its relation to society. We recognize both the roots and historical emergence of “classical” land art form together with new approaches through cross aesthetics, different medias, relational aesthetics, new material art, all kinds of collaborative forms. LAND-SHAPE challenges artists and artist groups to submit proposals for sites in North Jutland to activate:

– Hidden potential though cultural heritage of the region or special locations in North Jutland
– New narratives suggesting future potential of the sites. Cross going collaboration with local “resources” such as: primal matter, industrial products typical of the area, innovation areas of North Jutland, special materials produces in the area, institutions, villages, volunteers etc.
– Social engagement though art, involving the citizens, special social groups etc.
– Projects that can enhance the common understanding of the notion of landscape it self.

North Jutland is known for its great nature and wide variation in landscape types. The region has a strong sense of self-consciousness and a deeply embedded tradition for local collaboration. North Jutland is by Danish standards located far away from Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. This determinates a strong regional focus on both business and cultural fields and opens up to unique initiatives and a strong will to define local identity. This is a condition known to many other regions internationally. The aim of LAND-SHAPE therefore is to investigate in to and hopefully their by increase, the potentials and freedom of being perceived as the periphery/outskirts in any country. LAND-SHAPE deals with the question of how land art, interdisciplinarity and self-organizing can lead to new perspectives for the future society bound to this condition.

Submission period open: August 4 – November 1, 2014.
Selection of 10 winning land art proposals: November 2 – December 1, 2014.

An international jury of 5 highly skilled artists/landscape architects/ art historians etc., from at least 3 different countries, will select 10 winning proposals. LAND-SHAPE is in the process of electing the team for the jury, which will be announced by the end of August on LAND-SHAPE´s website.
