Artists take over Void Space in Athens. Deadline: April 15, 2017.

During the month of April, Void will launch an experimental approach to its platform and will work on an open-source model.

Artists are invited to take over Void’s space for short-term presentations of various projects.


The open-source model is a decentralized development model that encourages open collaboration. A main principle of open-source development is peer production, with products such as source code, blueprints, and documentation freely available to the public.


Void is open to receive proposals for talks, exhibitions, workshops, performances, etc.

Even though Void is a photography oriented space, we are open to any artistic expression. More important than the media support, we will take into consideration how innovative and unorthodox the proposition is.

Artists and curators can apply for the open source program that will take place on April 2017. Projects sent until 15 APR ‘17 will be reviewed and selected. Void’s idea is to give to new artists access to a free space that can host their ideas and practices.

What we are looking for, is innovative projects that can be flexible and adaptive to the space and time given.
Each project will have 2 days in Void.

 

Studio / workspace

Void is a newly created project, focusing on alternative publishing, exhibitions and workshops.
Void is also a physical space in the center of Athens, that can host your ideas.

Our goal is to engage in a series of projects around photography and other visual arts and to make Void a platform for exchanging ideas with people living both in Greece and abroad.

Calendar slots

Each project will be given 2 days at the space. And this is the total time, including mounting and unmounting (in case it is needed).

Projects that demand more time than this may be also considered.

You may apply for a specific calendar slot:

  • 18-19 APR ’17
  • 20-21 APR ’17
  • 22-23 APR ’17
  • 25-26 APR ’17
  • 27-28 APR ’17
  • 29-30 APR ’17

Fee and Support

Did we mention it is free?

We don’t ask for any fee for submitting the projects.
And if selected, we also won’t charge for anything.

Void will only provide the free space. Any other expenses that each project demands are entirely a responsibility of the artists.

 

Application information

Send an email (subject “Open-source” – proposal file should be no more than 5 Mb) with your idea to talkto@void.photo

The email must include:

  • A short bio and cv
  • A description of your project
  • A full description of the needed space modifications illustrated on Void’s blueprint
  • A full description of the material that will be used
  • The preferred calendar slot

Proposals should be received until 15 APR ‘17.

The projects will be selected in the order we receive them.
This means: early submissions are more likely to be selected.

IMPORTANT:

  • Artists must be present at Void for the whole process of mounting, unmounting and presenting their project.
  • All the projects should be non-profit oriented.
