This workshop is part of Transeurope, a new European platform for professional photographers and visual artists to share, learn, interact and develop their work internationally. The scope of Transeurope is to facilitate access to professional opportunities as well as to create the conditions for greater transnational circulation of their works.

From January to March 2018, preparatory portfolio workshops are going to take place in 14 countries at international cultural and photography venues. Following on from this from May to June 2018, three portfolio reviews will be held in Madrid, Athens and Helsinki where more than 60 portfolio reviewers and 200 photographers/visual artists are expected to participate. The program will include seminars and workshops, conference and cultural visits shaping an experience of professional training for photographers.

After the closure of the portfolios, a jury will select 30 works that will be part of three group exhibitions (September 2018-November 2019) and will be also featured in the accompanying printed magazine/publication and the web platform will be a data base for consulting with more than 300 experts, artists and art centers, etc.

Transeurope is co-organized by the Fundacion Contemporanea-PhotoEspaña in Madrid, The Finnish museum of Photography in Helsinki and Euromare NPO in Athens. Among its founders the project has come to life with the support from the European Commission, the Creative Europe Culture-Educational, and the Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.

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!

Artist Call for participation in book project. Extended Deadline: Mar. 31, 2018

Call for submissions
Artists who explore the relationship between the Self and the Other are invited to respond with images and short positional statements for publication.

Self and Identity have become major themes of our connected lives. The ease with which we gravitate to like-minded people, the bubble we comfortably find ourselves in means that we only sometime manage to discern the difference between ourselves and other people. The bubble remains intact; wars, elections, referenda rattle our security but for many life continues as before.
As artists, we need to reach further than most. We need to approach the Otherness of the outside world with more generosity. To accept it may be that  we cannot answer questions about selfhood without a recognition that the differences between people, experienced as alienation and separation, are unreal : following Paul Ricoeur and his work “Oneself as Another”, we must accept that we have too much Otherness within ourselves.

This call is to reach out to you as an artist with this shared interest and to join with me in a community of shared research. I found this line of research beginning with the cast shadow of the self and through exploring its independent, isolated and wayward behaviour. I have previously made a short monograph “Shadow:Other:myself” (ISBN 978-1977535535, preview https://goo.gl/TC6DqV )

To take this goal of community building further my intention is to make a limited edition, hardback book publication of your contributions. The book will feature 20 (approx. ) artists with images and facing text. In the first instance, two copies will be posted to each published participant. We can then discuss our next steps.
Initially, send an image and an account (200 words) to describe your Self’s response to the Other with a URL for other relevant work. The artist must confirm that they own copyright in the image and text.
On progress the selected image must be available in hi-res (3000 x 3000 pixels) — the artist will at all times retain control of copyright both of image and text. As editor I can help you with any translation from your own words, the text of the book will be published in English.
