August Sander Prize for portrait photography. Deadline: Feb. 28, 2018 

A new prize for portrait photography will be awarded every two years from 2018. The “August Sander Prize” is endowed with 5,000. – € and is sponsored by Ulla Bartenbach and Prof. Dr. Kurt Bartenbach in cooperation with the Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur, Cologne.
In addition to the prize money, an exhibition in the Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur will be organised in consultation with the prizewinner.
The awarding of the prize combines the idea of promoting young contemporary artistic approaches in the sense of factual and conceptual photography. National and international artists up to 40 years of age with a focus on photography are eligible to participate.
The naming of the prize is explained by the fact that The Photographic Collection/SK Foundation Culture owns the August Sander Archive, the world’s largest collection of original works by August Sander (1876-1964). Against the background of August Sander’s important portrait photographs, the photographic works of the applicants should primarily relate to the theme of the human portrait.
The jury is made up of five members: a curator, an art historian from the academic field, an artist, a representative of the founding family and a representative of the Photographical Collection/SK Foundation Culture.
The closing date for entries is 28 February 2018 and the prize-giving ceremony will take place in September 2018 at the Photographische Sammlung. The complete invitation to tender including all the conditions of the competition can be found at the following web address: http://bit.ly/2ylRG2D

Call for creative digital projects, Vienna. Deadline: Oct. 3, 2017

Photography Call. Galerie Sehnsucht. Deadline: Oct. 15, 2017

We call for entries from photographers and photographic artists with images that are dedicated to Sehnsucht. Our first exhibition will be on view with this title from November 1st, until December 10th, in our wonderful gallery at the Vijverhofstraat. It will show our selection from the works that were submitted in the call. We will be assisted in making this selection by Philippe Moroux. Philippe is an artist and photographer who lectures at the Academy of Art and Design St. Joost in Breda, Netherlands. He will be the guest curator for this exhibition.

sehnsucht (n) “the inconsolable longing in the human heart for we know not what”

‘Sehnsucht’ is a German word, but known to artists for centuries. Friedrich von Schelling, a German author and thinker, called Sehnsucht the “gravity of our emotions”. It explains the never ending search people set out to do, a searching in the world, in the hearts of other people, a search in themselves … but not knowing quite for certain what they are looking for, it’s more a feeling than a word. The old idea of the ‘Wanderer’, always restless and thinking that happiness is somewhere else, is closely connected to it. Sehnsucht can apply to small longings, intimate things, but just as well to great things and deeds that one wants to happen, or to the loneliness the individual looks for in the face of the sublime.
Popular as emotion in the arts from the days of the romantics in the 19th century, the word can be applied on work of photographers as different as Alfred Stieglitz, Bill Brandt, Sally Man or William Egglestone.

Your work can be anything from a straight photograph, to manipulated and even drawn photoshop projects, from alternative 19th century photographic techniques to modern, computer made images, graphic arts (etchings, litho’s…), as long as it’s based on one or more photographic images (no drawings or paintings) and you can show us how it looks by sending us a digital file.

Bauhaus Residence. Deadline: September 6, 2017

 

In the 1920’s the Masters’ Houses in Dessau became the epitome of an artist community of the twentieth century. This is where Walter Gropius, Oskar Schlemmer, Georg Muche, László Moholy-Nagy, Lyonel Feininger, Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee and their families lived next door to each other. Here they were joined by their friends and visitors. Artist collectives, artist couples and artist friendships developed here, with everyone working together in the open structure of the model homes located in a park. However, when the Bauhauslers left in 1933 the area became deserted and the work created as a result of the artistic effort was abandoned.

Since February 2016 the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation is enabling young international artists to once again live and work in the Schlemmer house – even if the restrictions of the perseveration of cultural heritage attached to the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site are very strict. With the new format the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation would like to promote the current focus of attention on the Bauhaus heritage, revitalise the Masters’ Houses and in this context promote artistic and creative work of international significance which will then at the end of the residency period be displayed in the Gropius House until the Bauhaus anniversary in 2019.



Participation conditions

The programme is catering to artists with an overall interest in all those areas that are historically being represented by Bauhaus and that have developed from it until today: painting, design, textile, architecture, sculpture, photography, film.

Please appreciate the fact that the Open Call is not open to students. Teams are welcome.

Application (German or English):
Please apply using the application online form

We require the following information from you:

  • Your career development
  • A list of your previous exhibitions
  • The actual project that you will be working on during your stay at Bauhaus. This should be related to Bauhaus (approx. 2 pages). The project should also be tied to the Foundation’s annual topic in 2018 “Standards”. (Here we are looking at a survey of standards existing in building, living, life and works of art. How do we deal with measurability, rules and standards? How can we get off the beaten track of standards in the field of art? What influence does art have today on how we perceive standards?)
  • A motivation
  • An artist’s portfolio

Applications in paper or other formats will not be accepted and will therefore disqualify the applicant.
