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.

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.

Photography Exhibition Call. Deadline: Jan. 21, 2018

Call for entries:

The Time Machine

Photography is an art of teleporting the past into the future –
Mehmet Murat Ildan (Turkish Playwright)

For photographers, time is an important concept. A photograph is a moment frozen in time, but it’s meaning changes in the future and the photo itself becomes part of the past. Photography is two hundred years old now. During these centuries, the looks of the photographs have changed. When we see a photograph, we instinctly place it into some point in time. Brown, black and white are old, colour photographs are new. Sometimes we are right, sometimes wrong.

Can you use your camera as timemachine? Can you give us a feeling of displacement in time, simply by showing us your photographic work? Are you able to surprise us by using old techniques capturing modern day subjects, or, on the contrary, using modern techniques but in a strange, timeless, old fashioned manner? Can you combine old and new, making the future? This exhibition will be about time – past, present and future.

The guest curator is Jeroen de Wijs. He is a dedicated collodion photographer, and an educator at the Willem de Kooning Academy for the arts (Rotterdam). He is currently working on a project “capturing the present with the past”, which embodies travel photography with a mammoth collodion camera of modern subjects. He gives a presentation on the subject on January, 19th (check this link “events”).

The exhibition will run from February, 14th, untill March, 24th, 2018.
The deadline for submitting your images is January, 21st. 2018
