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.

The Luminary Residency Program. Deadline: Sept. 15, 2017

Applications Open for 2018 Residencies

As a leading artist-run and artist-centric space, The Luminary supports exceptional ideas and initiatives by providing dedicated time, considered collaborations and a supportive working environment through our Residency Program. The program is open to all artists, performers, curators and critics, but uniquely supports the research, development and presentation of work that utilizes innovative forms and unconventional structures such as alternative spaces and economies, publications and writing, archives, collaborations, artist-led projects and experimental institutional practices.

Though open to all applicants, particular attention for 2018 will be given to the theme of New Constitutions: Commoning the Institution. For the year, we invite proposals that rethink the relationship between the individual and the institution, asking questions such as: How does an artist, art writer, performer or curator reshape an institution’s practice, its publics, or its politics? How do economies of care and collaboration reshape the institution? How do we work past the individual economies of the art world and advance new conceptions of the commons? Participants may propose to alter our administrative procedures or physical environment; propose new uses of space or initiate other spaces within our own; rework our public relations or intervene within our online presence; or thoroughly reimagine how we relate with artists and circulate within the art world.

In 2018, The Luminary will accept twelve residents in three phases: April and May; June and July; and September and October. Residencies are two weeks up to six weeks in duration and each resident will receive stipends, spacious private accommodations, shared studio space, and connections with local artists, curators and galleries. Each resident is expected to work towards an exhibition, publication, institutional collaboration or other public program during their residency.

Applications are due September 15th, 2017 for residencies taking place throughout 2018.

To apply, please fill out the online application.

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.
