beginning of February 2012 at Rajatila Gallery in Tampere, Finland.
Featherweight Portable Museum aims to bring non-profit art associations
together in collaboration between different art associations around Europe.

Featherweight Portable Museum is a concept borrowed from Susan Sontag’s
book, On Photography, in which she analyses how we perceive photography and
how it transforms our self-image and society. We want to see the beautiful,
the strange and something that makes us see the extraordinary in the

Featherweight Portable Museum addresses the problem of how emerging artists
can show their work without undue economical strain and offers the answer by
using galleries slack time in between exhibitions and other unused spaces.
With a portable museum -concept we are collecting art works that are easy to
transport around art associations in different countries. The mix of Finnish
and Irish/British art in this event is a celebration for the art in slack
spaces, a tour of media art where nationalities come together, give
presentations about their actions and uses empty free space to show media
art in different forms. After the events in Tampere and Belfast the media
art screening will travel to different art associations, who are willing to
have a screening in their space for a day or two.

Videoart Call “BODY VS. URBAN waste”. Deadline: April 20, 2011

For this second edition, the Cordoba-based ESPACIO A ROJO has elected the relationship between the body and urban waste as a link between the proposals received. This relationship may be physical or conceptual. They propose to rethink the theme of the relationship of our body, whether active or passive, with the city, especially one of the problems most difficult to manage: that of our own waste.
Special emphasis will be on the representation of contemporary issues that address our current situation. Time limit of 12 minutes, deadline on April 20th. The jury will address aesthetic issues, the use of contemporary language, the editing, originality and coherence with the call, to be found hereafter, in Spanish (the call is open to all nationalities, anyways….)

“BODY VS. URBAN waste”
Pueden participar todos/as los/as artistas interesados, individual o colectivamente, sin límite de edad y de cualquier nacionalidad.
Para esta segunda edición se ha elegido la relación entre el cuerpo y los desechos urbanos como nexo de unión entre las propuestas a recibir. Esta relación puede ser física o conceptual. Continuando en la línea de trabajo de la edición anterior replanteamos como temática la relación del nuestro cuerpo, sea activa o pasiva, con una de las unidades de espacio que más condicionamos y nos condicionan: las ciudades. En este caso profundizamos en una de las problemáticas más presentes en nuestras vidas y de más difícil gestión: la de nuestros propios deshechos. Una problemática exclusivamente humana que en ocasiones deviene en la destrucción de la natura y en ocasiones, escasa, en su regeneración. Se hará especial hincapié en la representación de las problemáticas contemporáneas que abordan nuestra actual situación. Se establece un límite de duración de 12 minutos por pieza audiovisual. El jurado atenderá a cuestiones estéticas, a la utilización de lenguajes contemporáneos, a los acabados de calidad, factores de originalidad e idoneidad con la convocatoria.
