Social Art Award (Berlin). Deadline: Mar. 31, 2017

Message from the Captain: “I personally find Calls that cost the participant 50 euros and the Grand Prize is 1000 euros questionable: 20 Participants, and all costs are covered. But since there are exceptions for certain countries (participation fee 25€ or even for free), and they promise to change the world, who am I to stand in their way. So here it comes…  a Call for a Social Art Award”

Vilém Flusser Residency in Berlin. Deadline: Dec. 1, 2013

transmediale – Vilém Flusser Residency Programme for Artistic Research

Description:

We ‘know’ that there is nothing wonderful about the world, or about ourselves, (…) and still we produce wonder after wonder. Perhaps (…) what science is really about is not to explain wonders, but to create them. /Vilém Flusser/

We are calling upon artistic research to actively explore the capabilities and limitations of transdisciplinary and transmedial situations in contemporary culture and thus to understand artistic research as exploring the links between aesthetics, materiality, and politics.

The Vilém Flusser Residency Programme for Artistic Research supports projects and activities which are simultaneously conceptual and practice-based. The programme is geared towards the initiation of new research or to the further development of existing projects.

For Vilém Flusser, theory and praxis are intrinsically tied to each other. His nomadic thinking was shaped by a philosophy of positions, experimental testing of different ways of thinking and the linking of different disciplines and methodologies played a significant role in his work. Not the search for the truth but rather the playing around with the aesthetic constitution of truth characterised his thinking, often developed in dialogue with others. A fundamental principle of his philosophy is the dialogue between the disciplines, points of view, and methodologies. Knowledge production as a dialogue between different standpoints, such as between science and art, laboratory and applied research, old and new media, local and global forms of organisation, is therefore the guiding principle for the concept of artistic research, which is supported by the Vilém Flusser Residency Programme for Artistic Research.

This is not a production grant. During the period of residency at least one workshop and public presentation is expected from the selected resident. But there is no pressure to present finished works. Where applicable, the support of publications, exhibitions, interventions and other results of the residency may be negotiated on a project-to-project basis. Special priority will be given to young and/or emerging artist-researchers.

Note
The period of residency is three months: from 1 May till 31 July 2014. The applicant selected by the jury will have the opportunity to further develop the submitted project during the time of the residency. The programme includes:
# travel costs to Berlin
# stipend of 3000 EUR (1000 EUR per month)
# workspace in the _vilém_flusser_archive at the University of Arts (UdK) in Berlin.

Depending on the project, collaborations with classes and studios can be arranged at the UdK Institute for time based media and other UdK institutions.
