Open Call for Commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl Disaster. Deadline: Sept 20, 2015

FOOD OF WAR
The Chernobyl Project 2016-2017 – Open Call

Food of War is a Multidisciplinary Art Collective dedicated to explore the relation between Food and War through art. Food of War is a Non-Profit initiative whose aims include creating art and events in order to raise awareness about the armed conflicts around the world, to promote the artists who develop their work around this subject and encourage the use of food as part of the viewer’s experience.

The Chernobyl Project 2016-2017
The Chernobyl Disaster occurred in 1986 during the Cold War and it alarmed the whole Europe about what was safe to eat and drink. Food of War considers of great relevance the consequences of this incident at the table of several European Countries where the radioactive cloud passed or might have had.
As a commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl Disaster, Food of War is developing a touring exhibition project for 2016-2017 that follows the trail of the radioactive cloud over Europe. The exhibition involves artists from Ukraine, Belarus, as well as from other EU nationalities.
Food of War is calling all visual artists (individual/collectives) living and working in Ukraine, Belarus, Germany, Sweden and Ireland to submit proposals for this exhibition. We are not interested in the direct causes of the accident but in exploring how it affected the continent and beyond in terms of consumption of food.
The proposals must include a description of the work (which can be in process or finished), rationale behind the work and a maximum of 3 images of the work. We welcome all mediums and artwork dimensions. Artists/collectives are also required to send a biography with a maximum of 5 images of relevant work or a link to the artists’ website.

Files must be sent as JPEG (low resolution) or PDF to info@foodofwar.org . Deadline ends 20th September 2015.
Selected artists will be notified by 28th September 2015.
