STARTS Prize 2018 Call – Art & Technology. Deadline: Mar. 2, 2018

STARTS Prize 2018 Open Call
Grand prize of the European Commission honoring Innovation in Technology, Industry and Society stimulated by the Arts

Appointed by the European Commission, Ars Electronica, BOZAR and Waag Society are launching a prize to select the most pioneering collaborations and results in the field of creativity and innovation at the crossings of science and technology with the arts. This follows the launch of a new activity in the European Commission named STARTS: Innovation at the nexus of Science, Technology, and the ARTS.

Science, Technology and Arts (=STARTS) form a nexus with an extraordinarily high potential for creative innovation. And such innovation is considered to be precisely what’s called for if we’re to master the social, ecological and economic challenges that Europe will be facing in the near future. The role of artists thus is no longer seen to be just about propagating scientific and technological knowledge and skills among the general public but much more as a kind of catalyst that can inspire and trigger innovative processes. The artistic practice of creative exploration and experimental appropriation of new technologies has a wide reaching potential to contribute to the development of new products and new economic, social and business models. Accordingly, the STARTS Prize focuses on artistic works that influence or change the way we look at technology, and on innovative forms of collaboration between the ICT sector and the world of art and culture.

Two prizes, each with €20,000 prize money, are offered to honor innovative projects at the intersection of science, technology and the arts: one for artistic exploration, and thus projects with the potential to influence or change the way technology is deployed, developed or perceived, and one for innovative collaboration between industry/technology and art/culture in ways that open up new paths for innovation.

Grand Prize—Artistic Exploration
Awarded for artistic exploration and art works where appropriation by the arts has a strong potential to influence or alter the use, deployment or perception of technology.

Grand Prize—Innovative Collaboration
Awarded for innovative collaboration between industry or technology and the arts that opens new pathways for innovation.

Submission phase ends on March 2, 2018!

Odesa Photo Days Call. Deadline: Mar. 1, 2018

Odesa Photo Days is quite young, but still the only one international photography festival in Ukraine and just begins to gain popularity in the international arena. It was founded in 2015 and arose as a reflection of the war in eastern Ukraine, political events and social media manipulation.

Three years in a row our festival tried to create educational platform for the international photographers, that to share knowledge, opportunities, ideas and spread the information about ukrainian photography. This year they also would like to see hidden stories from different continents, which is why they announce an Open Call for the main exhibition of the Festival, with theme “Off Limits”.

Artslant One Month Funded Residency in Upstate NY. Deadline: Feb 10, 2018

“We are proud to announce a new experimental residency created by ArtSlant in collaboration with Chashama.
Process Park is a funded four-week residency for 3-4 artists at chaNorth Artist Residency in Pine Plains, NY, the goal of which is to learn to live and work better through a process-oriented approach to art making and existing. The residency will conclude with an exhibition/symposium in New York that will be conceived and planned as a group during the residency.
The Spring 2018 residency runs April 1–April 29. Application deadline: February 10, 2018.”
Apply here.
This residency is designed to foster an engaged community through developing engaged individuals. Artists and cultural producers need space and time to interrogate and refine the ways they work and create while retaining a sense of amateurism. To this end, Process Park encourages research and play. Through knowledge-sharing, making, and experimentation, this residency aims to generate deeper connections between people and the visual and material culture they consume.
Process Park focuses on reinserting ourselves into the act of production, to interrupt the paradigm of contemporary alienation. Residents will be encouraged to develop a stronger relationship to the food we eat, the images we ingest, and the omnipresent algorithms that fundamentally shape our lives. Process Park pushes back on throw-away consumption.
We ask participants to bring knowledge to share and a willingness to learn from the residency’s facilitators, visitors, and co-residents. The emphasis will be on learning through doing. The goal is not only to share knowledge useful in art making but to share knowledge which will be useful in the practice of everyday life. Intensives take the form of teaching or learning the basics of a given skill in a day. Residents will practice those skills throughout the duration of the residency to incorporate that new knowledge into their lives.
If we create what supports and sustains us and our practices, our investment in the world is made richer, deeper.
Process Park includes Room & Board for four weeks, educational intensives, and an exhibition/symposium in NYC. Residents are encouraged to continue their own practices during the residency but are expected to participate in courses and scheduled group meals and events.
Application Requirements:
Who: All artists, cultural producers, writers, musicians, programmers, and researchers, 21+, looking to enrich their relationship with a mode of production are welcome to apply.
Course Proposal: Residents will lead an intensive, one-day course, sharing a skill of their choice with other residents. This skill can be part of your practice or not. You don’t need to be an expert but should feel comfortable enough that you can assist people in exploring a given area of knowledge. Your course proposal should be a brief description of the skill you want to teach, and how (max 250 words) and be entered into the field “Statement of Intent” on the application page.
Current intensives available by residency facilitators for Spring 2018 include planting, pickling, fermentation, basic HTML, felting, podcasting, clay-refinement, digital publishing, kiln and oven construction, and baking. Further intensives will be proposed and offered by residents.
Statement of Intent: Following your course proposal, your statement of intent should introduce your practice and provide a connection between your practice and what you hope Process Park will allow you to achieve within its unique parameters. Discuss what you will gain from this experience and what you can bring to the group’s dynamic. How would a process-based approach inform your practice going forward? How do you envision using your time at Process Park? (max 500 words)
Please also include contact information for two references and your CV.
You must apply using your ArtSlant Profile. Sign up here if you don’t have one already. Use your profile to include supporting images or texts for your application.
Questions? See the FAQ. Still have questions? Email us at process@artslant.com.

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

Please view our archive to get a sense of what we publish.
To be considered for Peer Review, the editorial board considers:
1. Whether the exposition exposes artistic practice as research. This engages with questions and claims about knowledge within practice. For a detailed articulation of this please read the editorial to JAR0.
2. The degree to which the exposition is conceptually and artistically strong, considered, and significant to the field.
3. Whether the multimedia and design capacities of the RC have been used effectively and meaningfully to support the argument or understanding of the research.
To submit an article, contributors are required to register for an account on the RC and use the online space to design the layout for and expose their research. JAR provides editorial and technical guidance with these processes.
