'Pankhurst in the Park' AiR opportunity

Female Artists from a wide spectrum of creative disciplines (including art, craft, writing, dance and performance) who are from UK and beyond are invited to submit proposals to undertake an artist residency at Manchester's Alexandra Park between September and November 2014.

Introduction

Alexandra Arts is an artist-led collective based in Manchester's Alexandra Park, UK. Intertwined with an arts programme, we are setting up an International Artist Residency for an artist to explore Alexandra Park’s significant heritage connected to the iconic Suffragettes leader, Emmeline Pankhurst. Pankhurst (born Goulden,1858 –1928) was a political activist and instrumental in gaining the right for women to vote. She was born only yards from Alexandra Park in the neighbouring Moss Side Estate and locally there are no traces of her legacy.

This International Artist Residency opportunity welcomes a female artist working in any art form to be inspired by, contemporise and creatively illuminate the significant local history that is linked to Alexandra Park. The International Artist Residency places a strong emphasis on engagement and collaboration, seeking to deepen the existing relationships between Alexandra Park and the multicultural community surrounding it.

Artists eligibility

The International AiR opportunity is open to a female UK and internationally based artists.

Why female Artists only? Our educational partner St Mary's Primary School, an ethnically diverse school community based in Moss Side has invested in this International AiR opportunity (see more info under section; AiR practicalities). A male artist would not be able to access some of this school’s audience due to cultural and religious reasons. However, we will not exclude working with male artists for future International AiR opportunities, as we are continuously working with a broad range of partners.

Fees

There is a £ 10.00 application submission fee, payable over PAYPAL

The total budget for this International Artist residency is up to £5,000

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Monday 25 August at 12pm (UK Time) 2014. Applications received after 12pm will not be accepted. Applications must be submitted via email to hello@alexandra-arts.org.uk

The successful applicant will be notified by Friday 29 August 2014.

If you have any questions about the opportunity or application process please contact us on the e-mail above.

PREMC - an art residency in Orissa, India

The first thing you have to know about PREMC is that this is NOT the typical art residency, but this will be the time of your life!
In fact, while you will have free time to work on your personal project, PREMC will concentrate on discovering Indian culture – the one practice in Orissa, to be precise. Therefore, your weeks will be divided in two: the first part of the week, will be about learning, through participating in local festivals, going into the houses of people (who will tell you about their rituals, daily life and beliefs), attending talks given by specialists (university teachers, professional artists, priests) and visiting temples and other important places in the surrounding area. In the second half of the week, we will give you time to breath as no activities will be planned, it’s time for you to transform all this inspirational matter into your own creativity and art projects!

The residency will welcome 30 artists from January 12th to February 12th 2015 ; the cost is 250 US $ per week (1000$ in total) and includes accommodation, food, weekend visits and participation to all activities.

Call for Artists: SOCIAL CITIES - Self Identities, Common Places

International ArtExpo, in collaboration with It’s LIQUID Group, is selecting all interesting architecture projects, photo works, video/short films, installations and performing art works to include in the next 2014 exhibition:
SOCIAL CITIES – Self Identities, Common Places, international festival of architecture, photography, video art, installation and performing art which will be held in the prestigious Palazzo Albrizzi in Venice (Italy), from July 31 to August 10, 2014. It will be the third event of the festival MORPHOS – Sustainable Empires, organized in Venice in the months between June and November 2014, in the same period of Architecture Biennale.

SOCIAL CITIES – Self Identities, Common Places analyzes the change of social relationship’s dynamics and the new need of real and face-to-face public rapports among people in our contemporary, high-tech and alienating lives. Today new technologies are integrated in our life and permit us to create endless networks of contacts with people from all-over the world, that we will probably never meet in real life. This infinite connections has enriched our lives and our personal identities, but from the other hands has completely modified the way in which we create human connections, creating more distance between them and us. Nowadays contemporary metropolis follow the new need of increasing our opportunities to connect with other people; meanwhile people try to create solid identities and individual personalities out of the sea of social networks.

Palazzo Albrizzi is one of the Venetian aristocracy’s palaces, situated in Cannaregio 4118, near Ca’ D’Oro. Constructed by the famous Capello family, in the 18th century the Palazzo passed into the hands of the Albrizzi family. The palace is the headquarter of ACIT Venezia, one of the most important Italian-German cultural association in collaboration with Goethe Institut, and since 2003 it has collaborated with Biennale in Venice, offering its spaces for National Pavilions or Collateral Events.
Architects/designers are invited to take part in the festival submitting panels, video-architecture works, photos, installations and scale models. Artists, photographers and video makers are invited to submit photos, video-art pieces, installations and performing art works.

Deadline for applications is July 22, 2014

If you want to have a solo exhibition inside MORPHOS program (from June to November 2014) send us your proposal and we will get in touch with you as soon as we can.

CALL FOR ARTISTS

CRACK INTERNATIONAL ART CAMP 2014
Organized by CRACK Trust

Application Deadline: 15 September 2014
Finalist Announcement: 30 September 2014
Camp Date: 25-30 December 2014
Open Day: 30 December 2014
Venue: Smaran Matsya-beej Khamar, Rahimpur (adjacent to Dhaka-Kushtia highway), Kushtia, Bangladesh.

Introduction/ Background:
Artist Shawon Akand and artist Delowar Hossain’s meeting had germinated the crucial idea of this platform in 2007. The initiators conceived a melting pot for artists and creative minds coming from diverse fields of praxis to come together and explore each other’s artistic realms. Eventually this platform is now constituted as a non-profit arts trust (CRACK Trust) which is primarily based in Bangladesh and also charting new artistic arenas globally.
At CRACK Trust we believe that Art is a complex process and it could not be separated from life and ways of living. We think that every form of art has inter-relation and it is necessary to develop vigorous inter linkages between every field of culture to create a favorable environment for the progress of artistic practices. In this light, apart from visual artists, CRACK also engages creative people from various disciplines, including but not limited to theatre activists, photographers, film makers, musicians, psychologists, singers, poets, writers, journalists, actors, anthropologist, folklorists, historians, art critics and so on.

Objective & Purpose:
1. CRACK International Art Camp(CIAC) focuses on promoting young artists & thinkers by giving them space & momentum for flourishing their talent on an international basis.
2. CIAC is building a potential cross-cultural relationship keeping away from the conventional corporate culture.
3. Exchange of thoughts, ideas, concepts & beliefs will accelerate seamlessly through CIAC.
4. CIAC facilitates the participants coming from across the world with the philosophical basis to think independently out of basket.
5. Telescoping scope for practicing Art & Culture across the border. Involvement with multi-cultural participants will definitely click fresh, positive and new ideas for anyone involved in this art camp.
6. Sharing and caring for cross-cultural art will aim at the establishment of an eco-friendly platform. A way out from the monotonous urban life, spending some days in the lap of nature and catching up with the beats of pastoral Bengali folks are exactly what every artist might be thirsting for!
7. Brain-refreshing rather than brainstorming - the purpose of the camp is to provide the participants with a sound environment to relax their minds and share their views and insights about art works with each other.

Who can attend?
• CIAC is open for all art loving, cultural-minded people across the globe. It calls for artists in a broad sense from visual or conventional art media to the multidisciplinary periphery (poets, writers, journalists, singers or musicians, film makers, photographers and so on).
• Even though there is no age limitation to become a CIAC participant, young artists will be given priority.
• The CIAC is targeted to adventurous and enthusiastic persons who can accept challenges to comfortable living. People accustomed to luxurious suite and feasts are firmly discouraged to join the CIAC.

InLight 2014 will take place on Friday, November 21 in Monroe Park, one of Richmond’s most historically significant public spaces. The juror for InLight 2014 is Denise Markonish, Curator at MASS MoCA.

Proposals should involve, be inspired by, investigate, or interpret themes of light, from light as medium to light as concept. Additionally, 1708 encourages artists to propose projects that respond to and engage with the site.

The geographic and architectural features that characterize Monroe Park and its surrounding streets—pathways, walls, sidewalks, green spaces, trees, benches, statues, building facades, and more—also mark the intersection of Richmond’s social, political and cultural memory.

In addition to technical and production support, an honorarium of $300 will be given to each project. All projects are eligible for the Best in Show Award ($1500), the Most Environmentally Conscious Award ($1000), and the People’s Choice Award ($500).

It features a fountain and the Checkers House, a round-house in the middle of the park so named for the frequent checkers games that once regularly took place there. There are monuments to Confederate General Williams Carter Wickham and Joseph Stewart Bryan, a journalist and civic leader in Richmond in the late 19th/ early 20th century, and a memorial to veterans of World War II. Recently the park has received a lot of attention as the community begins to contemplate and decide on its future role within Richmond.

DELICEIRAS18 / temporary art community

We seek two artists for the new, experimental project DELICEIRAS18 located in a residential house in Porto, Portugal transformed into an art space. The first artist-in-residency round starts on the 1st of August but you can also apply for following months. Dates of each residency will be set with each artist depending on their individual project.

THE PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The DELICEIRAS18 project is located in a very old, two-story house in Porto, Portugal which seems to organically adapt to the form of the city itself, consisting of no perpendicular lines, with floors sloping and sounds of human and seagulls daily life entering through wooden old windows creating in the interior a constant quasimusical blend of noises. The house is situated in a very particular place, although right in the middle of a triangle created by three most central metro stations: Trindade, Aliados and Bolhão, its entrance stays hidden in a tiny bystreet, overlooked by tourists and bustling with local life. The everyday reality of the bystreet is even more curious due to a very particular combination of the house neighbors, formed by an old shoemaker's workshop, a motorcycle club and a traditional bar. The kitchen and upper toilet of the house face a brothel.

The aim of the project is to connect with the immediate environment of the house and explore borders between private and public by living, creating and exhibiting in one and the same space. The project is addressed to artists from all disciplines who want to spend a month, take an active part in the transformation within a temporary interdisciplinary art collective and realize a site-specific project in the house.

You will stay in a private room with a desk and pallet bed. The house interior will be newly painted in white color. You can use as a studio and work installment space as well your room as any other place in the house, including bathrooms, kitchen and corridors. The final result will be presented in the same space within last days of the project. During the work process we will collectively decide on the form and exact dates of the exhibition.

During your stay we will assist you with your working and personal needs and introduce you to the art scene of Porto and other parallel art projects. The residency is initially planned to last for one month but there is a possibility to extend your stay even up to one year.

THE HOUSE FACILITIES
4 private bedrooms/ateliers of approx. 20 m² each
fully equipped little kitchen and dining room
2 bathrooms and one small toilet
DIY silkscreen printing and cyanotype studio
storage room / can be used as a darkroom
Wi-Fi connection

We have a little garden in the MUSAS community gardens that you are also welcome to use as a studio.

COSTS
The project has non-profit character and is self-funded. Each participant will pay the monthly rent of the house that is 105 € + 70 € expenses (including electricity, gas, water, internet, toilet paper and eco-friendly cleaning detergents). You will need to cover your own trip to Porto and food.

APPLICATION
We will review applications on a rolling basis so we advice you to apply as soon as possible.

Please send anything you find relevant to show your interest areas and previous works to deliceiras18@gmail.com. Make sure you include a short text explaining your motivation to stay, work and exhibit in this particular space. Optionally you can include a short description of a project you wish to realize here. An interest to help with painting and other preparatory works will be taken as an advantage however is not mandatory.

INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF PERFORMING ARTS AND TRANSDISCIPLINARY INTERVENTIONS

OPEN CALL
performing arts and transdisciplinary interventions section

PROGRAM / RESIDENCY
deadline July 26, 2014

ALTO FEST 2014 Fourth edition
GIVE RISE to Human/Urban requalification

International Festival of Performing Arts and Transdisciplinary Interventions
September 22/28 - NAPLES - Italy

ALTO FEST 2014 is opening its public annual call, inviting all the creators working in the performing arts, and more generally those authors who expose themselves through transdisciplinary interventions, investigating new relationships with places and audience,that will hold them experiencing unprecedented synergies, hybrid practices, crossroad among several languages.
Therefore we invite performers, researchers, art and thought practitioners, single or collective artists.

Amateur groups are excluded.

ALTO FEST, conceived and directed by TeatrInGestAzione, is an International Festival ofPerforming Arts and Interdisciplinary Interventions which takes place in domestic and private spaces donated by the citizens. It aims to raise the awareness of territory to cultural renaissance, engaging citizens personally. They are asked to open to artists and audience the intimacy of their houses, their everyday workplace, the memory of the wineries, becoming promoters of a direct active culture in private spaces (apartments,terraces, patios, condos, shops ...) to GIVE RISE TO A HUMAN/URBAN requalification. A process carried out by experimenting with innovative poetic aiming to engage, together with the places, the system of relationships that these places host.
The Festival is inserted in the urban innermost creating a real encounter between citizens and artists, focusing on innovation aesthetics, that is in our opinion the essential requirement to build a new relationship between culture and social context.

“REWRITING SPACES” is the reflection that will go with 2014 Edition

Alto Fest questions about the need to radically reshape the relationship with the places , to subvert the use of space and allocation of fixed roles, through never tempted daring incursions (gender, discipline, responsibility, action); and invites artists to enter into dialogue with this reflection, to decline their own definition of " requalification " referring to their artistic project.
Moving from this request we invite you to enter into dialogue with some extracts of the textThe end of Space – by D. Libeskind, that is about the need to radically rethink the notion of“space” and particularly the relationship between “space” and “theatre”.

WHO CAN APPLY
Our invitation is directed to Italian and foreigners artists pursuing innovative aesthetics,nourishing cross-visions of their modus operandi.

THE WAY THE FESTIVAL WORKS

The spaces of the festival are private and donated by the citizens, invited by the organization, or on purpose of the donor himself. The features of the spaces dedicated to performances can change in nature, dimensions and there may be both outdoor or indoor spaces.
The selected artists will have to create original site-specific performances / works to be presented for the first time during ALTO FEST 2014, or offer previously created works that will have to be requalified in close relationship with the spaces that will host the performances. For this purpose, every selected artist will have the possibility to access an online archive including photos, site plans, intervention limits for each space, interviews to the owners and all the information concerning the locations of the festival.
Presented works will have to be “bare”, that is without the technical support of theatre and/or exhibitions. Spaces will have to be technically inhabited as they are; no light or sound staging will be contemplated. If necessary, mutually respecting the work and the space,the artist will have the possibility to requalify the chosen space with particular technical supports (that will be totally in charge of the artist and will have to be arranged with the owner of the space and with the organization in any case).
Considering the private nature of the spaces the number of spectators will be limited,therefore the works will be performed several times and in different moments of the day.

OPERAPPARTAMENTO CONTEST 2015

All the selected artists compete to the assignment of a 20 days creative residency called OPERAPPARTAMENTO to take place during the next edition of the festival, for the creation of a work that will be presented during ALTO FEST 2015 – Fifth edition, for the first time. The assigned artist will receive a production prize of 500 Euros, all the earnings of the work created during the Operappartamento, accommodation and technical support.

The assignment of the residency program is committed to the Critique Panel, a permanent space of reflection and interdisciplinary research, organic with Alto Fest. The CritiquePanel gathers a group of researchers and artists, personalities bringing their own knowledge, practices and competences, called to exercise a collective and multiperspective look on the Festival.
The Panel is coordinated by Loretta Mesiti (TeatrInGestAzione dramaturg), in dialogue with Silvia Mei (researcher, cultureteatrali.org editor), Black Spring Graphics (visual artist) and other members, invited every year.
The names of the members that will constitute the Panel of Alto Fest 2014 are being defined. You may follow the updates and the personal profiles on the home page of our web site and following Alto Fest social networks.

Alto Fest offers to selected artists

- the performance space (domestic or unconventional);
- free accommodation in one of the private domestic contexts belonging to theAccommodation Network constituted by citizens, friends and supporters;
- an official invitation letter for foreign artists and to whom has the possibility to ask a travel grant (travel costs are not covered by the festival), through cultural institutions of their own countries, and/or alternative resources that need an official invitation;
- the care of the relationship between artists and space donors, as well as the care of all the possible connections among the artists of the festival;
- work promotion through the festival information channels;
- the exclusive participation to the Operappartamento contest, only open to the selected artists for ALTO FEST 2014;
- one year of promotion of the activities of the selected artists through a newsletter monthly sent by the festival organization to more than 21.000 contacts;
- some of the selected artists will be presented to those theaters, cultural spaces and operators, that are in dialogue with the festival already. These selected artists will have to provide their own presentation materials by the end of October 2014.

While opening this call the organization is making an effort to collect the needed funds to cover the travel costs of the artists, also through a crowdfunding campaign, to which you can participate sharing and supporting, and searching for “ALTO FEST 2014” Project onindiegogo.com platform.
Only if the crowdfunding campaign will be successful, the festival will cover the travel costs(or a part); otherwise the travel costs will be in charge of the artists.

No support will be given if not explicitly expressed in the present call.

DELICEIRAS18 / temporary art community

The DELICEIRAS18 project is located in a very old, two-story house in Porto, Portugal which seems to organically adapt to the form of the city itself, consisting of no perpendicular lines, with floors sloping and sounds of human and seagulls daily life entering through wooden old windows creating in the interior a constant quasimusical blend of noises. The house is situated in a very particular place, although right in the middle of a triangle created by three most central metro stations: Trindade, Aliados and Bolhão, its entrance stays hidden in a tiny bystreet, overlooked by tourists and bustling with local life. The everyday reality of the bystreet is even more curious due to a very particular combination of the house neighbors, formed by an old shoemaker’s workshop, a motorcycle club and a traditional bar. The kitchen and upper toilet of the house face a brothel.

The aim of the project is to connect with the immediate environment of the house and explore borders between private and public by living, creating and exhibiting in one and the same space. The project is addressed to artists from all disciplines who want to spend a month, take an active part in the transformation within a temporary interdisciplinary art collective and realize a site-specific project in the house.

You will stay in a private room with a desk and pallet bed. The house interior will be newly painted in white color. You can use as a studio and work installment space as well your room as any other place in the house, including bathrooms, kitchen and corridors. The final result will be presented in the same space within last days of the project. During the work process we will collectively decide on the form and exact dates of the exhibition.

During your stay we will assist you with your working and personal needs and introduce you to the art scene of Porto and other parallel art projects. The residency is initially planned to last for one month but there is a possibility to extend your stay even up to one year.

THE HOUSE FACILITIES

4 private bedrooms/ateliers of approx. 20 m² each
fully equipped little kitchen and dining room
2 bathrooms and one small toilet
DIY silkscreen printing and cyanotype studio
storage room / can be used as a darkroom
Wi-Fi connection

We have a little garden in the MUSAS community gardens that you are also welcome to use as a studio.

COSTS

The project has non-profit character and is self-funded. Each participant will pay the monthly rent of the house that is 105 € + 70 € expenses (including electricity, gas, water, internet, toilet paper and eco-friendly cleaning detergents). You will need to cover your own trip to Porto and food.

APPLICATION

We will review applications on a rolling basis so we advice you to apply as soon as possible.

Please send anything you find relevant to show your interest areas and previous works to deliceiras18@gmail.com. Make sure you include a short text explaining your motivation to stay, work and exhibit in this particular space. Optionally you can include a short description of a project you wish to realize here. An interest to help with painting and other preparatory works will be taken as an advantage however is not mandatory.

After receiving sufficient applications we will carry out Skype interviews with shortlisted candidates.

CHARACTER PHOTO VIDEO WRITING CONTEST

$13,000 IN PRIZES. For centuries, portraits and stories that reveal our humanity have been a source of fascination for artists working in all forms of media - especially photography, video and writing. These visual and written stories can depict the inner spirit revealed in a face, the human condition found in an interaction, a short cinematic profile that reveals the essence of someone’s life, or a story that brings a fictional or historical persona to life. No matter what the genre, success is often found in the interaction between the maker and the subject.

This contest is an opportunity for our international community of photographers, filmmakers and writers of all ages to present their representations of Character: Portraits and Stories That Reveal the Human Condition to a distinguished panel of judges.

PREMC - Art residency in Orissa, India

The first thing you have to know about PREMC is that this is NOT the typical art residency, but this will be the time of your life!
In fact, while you will have free time to work on your personal project, PREMC is also a lot about discovering the Indian culture – the one practice in Orissa, to be more precise. Therefore, your weeks will be separate in two: during the first part of the week, you will learn, whether by participating to local festivals; going into the houses of people who will tell you about their rituals, their daily life and their beliefs; assisting to talks giving by specialists – university teachers, professional artists, priests; and visiting temples and other important places that surrounds the area. On the second part of the week, we will let you the time to breath; no activities are planned, it’s time for you to transform all this inspirational matter into some art project!
We encourage artists to apply with open heart and mind – it might be easier for you if you don’t already have a precise project in mind, because India is the land of the unexpected! Be prepare to be surprise, to experience a new pace of living and to learn to deal with plans that changes a lot. But that is not all! Be prepare to dance, to sing, to be overstimulated by wonderful colors, beautiful temples and intense people that will always find something to laugh about. It is your chances to bound with people you would never get the chance to talk with otherwise and to break cultural barriers.

Many visitors that want to come to Croatia want to rest in joy in a calm weather , sunny sky and clear blue sea. There are many of those places in Croatia and one of them is a place called Kastela near town Split, Croatia. There are 7 Kastela towers and they are called Kastel Stafilic, Kastel Novi, Kastel Stari, Kastel Luksic, Kastel Kambelovac, Kastel Gomilica and Kastel Sucurac. Also there are many beaches in Kastela near Spit, Croatia and one of the most famous is in Resnik, Kastel Stafilic. Kastel Stafilic is the best location to rent apartments as there is alot of sense in peace and quiet atmosphere. There is also an airport nearby but once you get used to it you won't even hear those planes flying by. Most tourists in Kastela are Chechs, Polish, German and English people and some of those people also come to Marina in Kastel Gomlilica so they rent boats to go to further islands and have fun. There are towns near Kastela and one of them is Split as mentioned and is about 10 km away, town Solin is 5 km away and town Trogir is 7 km away. They are all connected by Kastela bay. It is also a good resource to catch fish and some small boats can be rented and with instructors after you catch some of them you can grill at some apartment in Kastela.

PILOT. TRIAL AND ERROR. First residency programme in LA POSTIZA, south east Spain.

Curatorial Proposal

We are a brand new artists residency (20th June 2014) and we are in the very begining of our long future life. All of us are learning everyday and we have realized that Pilot concept is more than a test.

Our proposal is to work on what is a PILOT in any discipline of art. Develop a work in which both the achievements and the errors are part of the process of creating a work and constitute the final piece of art itself. Every piece should be small-scale, understanding small-scale as a smaller size than the actual size of the final piece, having developed previously a work of trial-error until where the artist considers his work as definitely finished.

The initial point of this investigation is from the perspective of the so-called New Experimentalism: a branch of the philosophy of natural science, and from the work of Ian Hacking that redirected and broadened the traditional conception of experiment.

Only when we manipulate an entity we actually are able to prove its existence. The understanding and definition of an entity is not necessarily static. This is the MAIN IDEA we propose to develop.

Duration of residency
3 months: Sept-Dec2014

adsum Summer residence in Berlin

Summer Residence 2014

Context:
Berlin is the city of artistic creation. Freedom is materialized in its streets, fills the people living there and makes it more inspiring than ever. Adsum is the initiative of two French visual artists settled in Berlin. It promotes ways for meeting, sharing, creating and reproducing based on a friendly research that does not overlook any space, theoretical and plastic trail to realize ambitious projects. Artists, ex- hibition commissioners, critics thus can meet at a place – the flat of Adsum’s two founders – for one summer, to focus on their respective practices, exchange, and work in a privileged framework.

Concept:
This summer residence is intended to be an active moment paced on the projects that the participants will want to develop. Thus the hosts’ flat becomes a territory for artistic emulation and will be acces- sible over an extended time slot. This research time will give them the opportunity to create, meet and collaborate with other professionals of the art world.
Friendly events are part of the summer residence in order to make possible a pooling of research and a sharing of knowledge. Public events may be organized in close cooperation with the participants and organizers. An exhibition in another place may be planned. As the two founders of Adsum are invol- ved in several French initiatives, they will be able to share their contacts. Without imposing any aim to participants, the summer residence will offer the opportunity to materialize exhibition, writing and innovative mediation formats.

Area:
The summer residence takes place in a 61 m2 flat in Berlin-Pankow. It is located on the ground floor and has a balcony and a garden. The flat is composed of an equipped kitchen (electric hot plates, oven, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer), bathroom (toilet, bath/shower), work room (80x280cm reclining work table on trestles, sofa-bed), home office (desk, two Imac, ink-jet printer/scanner, wifi) with bookcases (exhibition catalogues, books about art history, contemporary art, philosophy, etc), bal- cony (garden table) and garden. The area is intended to be adjustable, the high ceilings as well as the garden enable big formats; the reclining work table and the garden table enable smaller works. Material list for information purposes, use subject to conditions!

Hours and meeting:
The summer residence will take place from 5th July to 15th August. The area will be open to participants everyday from 2 to 8pm, expect on Wednesday. Meetings will be organized to animate the summer residence according to the following timetable..

Saturday 5/07
Reception of the participants: Welcome meal – Opening 2-12pm

The meals offered during the above meetings are borne by the organizers.

Participants:
The summer residence is open to everyone, artists, exhibition commissioners, critics, interested in the concept and submitting their application which are subject to the organizers’ selection. Four participants at most could enjoy the residence. Even though this residence does not aim at welcoming its participants continuously (guest-night), Ad- sum will possibly accommodate one person during the whole residence. The candidates guarantee, by submitting their application, that they live in Berlin over the period (except the candidates who ask to be accommodated by Adsum) and have to ensure that they are able to provide their financial contribution before the residence starts (as soon as the participants are selected, the contracts will be sent).

1708 Gallery's InLight Richmond 2014 Call for Entries

Richmond VA’s 1708 Gallery invites artists working in all media and disciplines to submit proposals for InLight Richmond 2014, 1708's 7th annual public exhibition of light-based art and performance. InLight 2014 will take place on Friday, November 21 in Monroe Park, one of Richmond’s most historically significant public spaces. The juror for InLight 2014 is Denise Markonish, Curator at MASS MoCA.

Proposals should involve, be inspired by, investigate, or interpret themes of light, from light as medium to light as concept. Additionally, 1708 encourages artists to propose projects that respond to and engage with the site.

The geographic and architectural features that characterize Monroe Park and its surrounding streets—pathways, walls, sidewalks, green spaces, trees, benches, statues, building facades, and more—also mark the intersection of Richmond’s social, political and cultural memory.

In addition to technical and production support, an honorarium of $300 will be given to each project. All projects are eligible for the Best in Show Award ($1500), the Most Environmentally Conscious Award ($1000), and the People's Choice Award ($500).

Monroe Park is a dynamic and expansive site with a long history. The Park is five-sided with crisscrossed pathways that form a radial pattern from the center. It features a fountain and the Checkers House, a round-house in the middle of the park so named for the frequent checkers games that once regularly took place there. There are monuments to Confederate General Williams Carter Wickham and Joseph Stewart Bryan, a journalist and civic leader in Richmond in the late 19th/ early 20th century, and a memorial to veterans of World War II. Recently the park has received a lot of attention as the community begins to contemplate and decide on its future role within Richmond.

The deadline for submissions is midnight (EST), July 15, 2014.

For more information about InLight Richmond 2014 and to submit a proposal, please visit: www.1708gallery.org/inlight.

July, September and October Interdisciplinary Research and Creative Residency near Barcelona

Since the beginning of CeRCCa´s Residency Program in 2009 our aim has been to facilitate and develop research and creative projects that reflect upon and interact with the local community. During these 5 years more than 70 artists and researchers have been selected to be part of CeRCCa. Through the residency and the collaboration with the local community they have developed projects in different disciplines ranging from video, photography and performance to street art, creative workshops and interventions in the public space. To celebrate all these projects and as a homage to the artists, researchers and all the people and organizations that have collaborated with CeRCCa the ‘5th CeRCCa Anniversary Publication’ will be launched in summer 2014.

After the evaluation of the first five years of CeRCCa and thanks to many conversations with other professionals and previous residents we are happy to announce the new venture of CeRCCa. This new venture will be developed through the restructuring of CeRCCa’s artists and researchers residencies.

The New Artists and Researchers Residency Project will be structured as follows

• The main feature of the new strategy will be to promote exchange and reflection with no obligation of producing a concrete body of work or having a final exhibition. In a time where artists and researchers are under pressure to produce and justify the validity of their professions with tangible outcomes we strongly believe that to have time for dialogue and experimentation is much needed. We believe that the perfect framework to do so is to spent time and work together through the artist in residency methodology.

• We believe that the new residency format will be a time for you to work in your own development as well as building up your professional career through networking and knowledge sharing. CeRCCa will help on that process facilitating contacts and visits in accordance to your interests. In order to facilitate networking and knowledge sharing CeRCCa offers an apartment in Barcelona so to have time to meet, promote your work and learn from other professionals and organizations. The fee for 1 night accommodation in CeRCCa’s apartment in Barcelona is 20E and the maximum stay is 1 night a week. Alternative overnight accommodation can be also arranged.

• The new residency format will be structured through stays of minimum 15 days that can be extended in periods of 15 days (1, 1.5, 2 … months) always starting and ending on the 1st or 15th of each month (those have to be the dates of arrival and departure). For 2014 the time span of the residency period can go from the 1st July to the 1st November.

• CeRCCa will facilitate accessibility to our program with a reduced artists fee. The artist fee for 15 days residency is 250E and 500E for 1 month. The artist fee includes single room with double bed, shared 40 sq studio with 1 more artist or researcher, running costs as well as advice, resources and networking information and contacts.
The selection of applications will be done every 2 months by the coordinators of CeRCCa.

• For residencies of 2 months or longer and if the artist or researcher is interested, CeRCCa will consider organizing an exhibition or public presentation at the end of the residency period. To ensure the best curatorial strategy and optimize the exhibition or public presentation a committee of experts will consider the candidate’s application and exhibition proposal. The same process goes for talks, workshops and other events. Priority will be given to site-specific projects of any discipline and format.

In parallel and complementing CeRCCa New Artists and Researchers Residency, CeRCCa is engaged in different Curatorial and Research Projects. For the coming three years these projects are

• Storyweavers. Theory and Practice of Digital Story Telling in collaboration with organizations from Ljubljana, Copenhagen and Alexandria.

• North Africa Cultural Mobility Map in collaboration with organizations from Amsterdam, Alexandria and Tetuan. www.nacmm.wordpress.com

• Practice Based PhD in Curating in collaboration with organizations from Ljubljana, Zagreb, Helsinki, Vienna, Venice and Izmir.

If you are interested in knowing more about the different Research and Curatorial Projects you can check our website www.cercca.com or contact us at cercca@gmail.com. To apply for CeRCCa New Artists and Researchers Residency Project please fill in and send us the attached application form.

We are looking forwards to hear from you soon.

'Art : a peaceful way of promoting peace'

What have the following words in common: integration,equality,inclusion, multiculturalism, peace and democracy?

The answer is 'Art : a peaceful way of promoting peace'

Do you care about people, equality and human rights? Are you aware of the damage that Europe suffers from the rise of 'xenophobia'? Are you an artist from the Netherlands? Then you should definitely join the new international project “Citizens Beyond Walls”! This project takes place in Utrecht (The Netherlands) in July 2014.

International project “Citizens Beyond Walls”
Since December 2013, Stichting VIA is taking part in an EU Project called 'Citizens Beyond Walls' led by SCI Italy. The projects' action, spans over 16 months and involves 8 EU countries (Italy, Hungary, the Netherlands, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Spain and Germany).The project aims in activating European Citizens and fostering inclusive policies with particular focus on new citizens and minorities; whilst respecting Citizens Rights in Europe.

TOPIC
The Peace Nobel awarded European Union, is facing a growth of Parliamentarian, Extra-Parliamentarian and civil society groups, hindering the process of inclusion for 'new citizens' (e.g. immigrants) and marginalized groups (e.g. LGB,Roma). Such groups have been able to influence media narratives aboard the ability to affect national policies; thus, endangering the presence of peace and growth of the European Union and the European 'ideal'. Such exclusionary activities are a threat for peace in Europe, where peace is not only absence of conflict,but the condition where citizens' are equally endowed with rights.

METHODOLOGY

The last part of the project involves 8 Residential Peace Weeks taking place in each participant country (Italy, Hungary, the Netherlands, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Germany and Spain).During the Peace Week in the Netherlands, we are dealing with the research outcomes by organizing public events, reflecting on the European Memory of the past; allowing citizens to exchange ideas and advocating for citizens' rights with policy makers.

Past practice and current research, have identified Art as a powerful and peaceful 'medium'; able to raise/spread awareness of social and political issues; whilst promoting egalitarian ideas and fostering peace.

StichtingVIA is looking for exciting art works answering to the topic of 'Citizens Beyond Walls' for an Art exhibition. We are inviting submissions for the 'Peace Week', which will take place in July 2014 in Utrecht,The Netherlands.

AIMS
1.To raise awareness by presenting a clear overview of the current situation in The Netherlands with regard to the existing movements (political and extra-parliamentary) hindering the rights of the citizenship
2.To provide the participants of the Peace Week and activists -in general- with adequate and non-violent tools (good practice), providing the ability to counter the growth of the existing political movements (as described above)

CRITERIA
Open to all artists 18 and older.

Call for French and Dutch artists about archives from outer space History archives / French Space Agency

Appel à proposition pour une commande artistique
Les nouveaux récits de l’Espace

Objet : En 2014, l’Odyssée européenne de l’Espace a 50 ans. À cette occasion, l’Observatoire de l’Espace, le laboratoire arts-sciences du CNES (Centre National d’Études Spatiales), souhaite montrer la vitalité de la construction européenne et sa capacité à susciter des récits contemporains autour de sa propre histoire. Dans cette perspective, il lance un appel à proposition à destination d’artistes français et allemands, pour la réalisation d’une création artistique - audiovisuelle ou multimédia - autour d’archives de l’histoire spatiale.

Depuis sa création en 2000, l’Observatoire de l’Espace élabore une approche culturelle, voire anthropologique, de l’univers spatial et construit ainsi de nouveaux rapports entre les arts et les sciences.
Ce laboratoire arts-sciences conduit en ce sens l'inventaire du patrimoine culturel de l'Espace, patrimoine matériel et immatériel qui inclut, outre le patrimoine mobilier et immobilier, des archives papier et sonores ainsi que des objets, issus de la culture populaire et savante. Ce fonds est mis en perspective par les travaux de chercheurs en sciences humaines et sociales. Les témoignages directs des acteurs de cette aventure spatiale apportent également une contribution à ce matériau
documentaire.
L'horizon de cette action demeure la mise en oeuvre d’un processus de création en mettant à la disposition des artistes, qu’il accompagne dans le cadre de son programme « Création et imaginaire spatial », les vastes corpus documentaires qu’il constitue. L’Observatoire de l’Espace est ainsi fortement convaincu que chaque élément constitutif de l’aventure spatiale a été à la source de nombreux récits économiques, scientifiques, politiques et culturels, et que chacun de ces objets est
capable de générer de nouveaux récits contemporains.

Fort de cette démarche, l’Observatoire de l’Espace convie aujourd’hui des artistes à une immersion dans l’aventure spatiale en se focalisant sur un projet emblématique de l’histoire européenne, le programme Symphonie. À partir de juin 1967, la France et la République fédérale allemande décidaient d’unir leurs efforts pour la construction du premier satellite de télécommunications en Europe dont les ambitions techniques le classaient au plus haut niveau international. Le lancement des deux satellites en 1974 et 1975 et leur exploitation jusqu’en 1984 ont été l’aboutissement de longues années de consensus politiques, technologiques et industriels entre les deux pays européens, dans le contexte d’un développement spatial alors dominé par Etats-Unis et l’Union Soviétique.

Cet appel à proposition est habité par l’ambition d’oeuvrer à l’écriture d’une histoire contemporaine européenne de l’Espace tant du point de vue allemand que français. Quatre créations seront réalisées dans ce cadre par deux artistes français et deux artistes allemands. Elles seront présentées lors d’une exposition événement au CNES à Paris, le samedi 4 octobre 2014, durant la Nuit Blanche - une manifestation dédiée à l’art contemporain organisée par la Mairie de Paris, qui draine un public important dans des lieux ouverts exceptionnellement à cette occasion. La direction artistique de cette 13e édition 2014 est confiée à José-Manuel Gonçalvès, directeur du Centquatre. Par ailleurs, une version des oeuvres, d’une durée maximum de 30 minutes, sera réalisée sur DVD pour être intégrée à une publication à tirage limité de l’Observatoire de l’Espace, autour des 50 ans de l’aventure spatiale européenne. Enfin, les pièces pourront également être présentées à Berlin dans un lieu encore à définir.

Dans un premier temps, pour l’écriture de leur proposition artistique, les artistes doivent se référer à la note de synthèse illustrée d’une sélection d’archives sur le projet Symphonie sont a télécharger sur le site : http://petitlien.fr/Symphonie. Ils proposent à partir de cette première documentation, un projet de création qui témoigne d’un parti pris artistique fort et dont les ambitions esthétiques et intellectuelles mettent en exergue les enjeux qui se nouent au sein du projet Symphonie. La piste documentaire n’étant pas exclusive, les artistes peuvent tout aussi bien s’engager sur une piste fictionnelle, ou bien proposer des expérimentations plus
formelles, toujours en perspective de cette histoire spatiale. Il s’agit ici pour l’artiste de dessiner l’identité de son travail en rapport direct avec une source archivistique dont quelques exemples lui sont proposés ici. Les modalités d’utilisation des archives sont laissées à l’appréciation de chacun, dans le
respect de l’intégrité des éléments audiovisuels. L’artiste reste également libre d’alimenter sa création de ses propres sources. Dans tous les cas, l’artiste doit justifier dans une note d’intention, de ses choix artistiques en cohérence avec le projet et formuler la manière dont il entend se saisir du matériau proposé (élément d’inspiration sous-jacent, utilisation de l’archive brute, utilisation d’extraits, utilisation du son seul, etc.). Une grande liberté est permise quant à la technique utilisée, en restant dans le champ de l’audiovisuel ou du multimédia, autant qu’aux formes de monstration de l’oeuvre (vidéo, installation, création numérique, photographie…), pour autant que le projet revête un caractère contemporain.

À l’issue de la phase de sélection, les artistes auront accès, via Dropbox, à un appareil documentaire conséquent, composé de films, de documents, d’archives photographiques et radiophoniques ainsi que de données scientifiques. Dans le cadre de l’évènement exposition pour la Nuit Blanche, chacun des quatre artistes retenus disposera d’un espace dans la salle d’exposition du CNES, où il pourra déployer sa création sous la forme de son choix (projection vidéo, installation, accrochage). L’artiste devra également imaginer son oeuvre sous une forme spécifique adaptée au support DVD qui sera joint à la publication de
l’Observatoire de l’Espace.

Admissibilité
Cet appel à proposition s’adresse à des artistes professionnels, seuls ou en collectifs :
- âgés d’au moins 18 ans au moment du dépôt du dossier,
- de nationalité française ou allemande.
L’artiste s’engage à soumettre une proposition libre de tout droit (vidéo, son et image) qui respecte
les conditions juridiques et financières prévues ci-dessous. Il s’engage également à respecter le
calendrier établi sur le formulaire de candidature.

Sélection
La sélection s’appuiera sur une note d’intention et un résumé de la démarche de l’artiste en regard d’un dossier artistique présentant ses créations antérieures. Les dossiers seront jugés par une commission culturelle, sur la démarche globale de l’artiste, sur la pertinence du propos énoncé et la singularité du regard porté sur cette histoire de l’Espace qui se traduira dans des choix esthétiques forts. Il s’agira pour l’artiste de mettre en évidence les modalités du dialogue entre l’oeuvre et son contexte de production : travail sur un corpus d’archives et la double forme de monstration de la création : lors de l’exposition et sur un support DVD. Le résultat de la sélection sera communiqué par email aux quatre artistes retenus (2 français et 2 allemands) au début du mois de juillet. L’ensemble du matériau documentaire sera alors mis à leur disposition via Dropbox, pour la production de leurs oeuvres. Une journée d’étude autour des nombreuses problématiques soulevées par le projet Symphonie, sera organisée à Paris courant juillet.

Production des oeuvres et rémunérations des artistes
Un budget de 2500 € sera attribué à chacun des 4 artistes sélectionnés. 1500 € seront versés pour la production des oeuvres et 1000 € pour la cession des droits patrimoniaux. Cette dernière somme sera attribuée à la livraison de l’oeuvre après acceptation définitive par l’Observatoire de l’Espace du CNES. Ce dernier se réserve le droit de ne pas présenter la création et dans ce cas, seul le budget de production sera attribué. Les conditions d’exploitation de l’oeuvre seront définies dans un contrat, avec les artistes sélectionnés. L’Observatoire de l’Espace s’engage à l’achat des droits d’utilisation des images d’archives au prorata de leur utilisation par les artistes pour la réalisation de l’oeuvre. Il est à préciser que le CNES et le DLR (Agence spatiale allemande), ainsi que les personnes qui y sont
rattachées et encore vivantes ne sauraient être désignées explicitement dans les créations proposées. Par ailleurs, toute proposition à visée raciste ou pornographique, indépendamment de tout jugement sur la qualité de la création, ne pourra être acceptée en l’état, tout en ayant bien conscience que ces
questions sont à traiter au cas par cas. L’Observatoire de l’Espace prend en charge les frais de déplacement et d’hébergement pour la journée de rencontre avec le artistes sélectionnés, pour le montage – le 2 octobre – jusqu’à l’événement du 4 octobre 2014. Il prend également en charge la production de l’édition DVD ainsi que
la scénographie de l’exposition selon les projets présentés. La phase de sélection ne fait l’objet d’aucune rémunération.

Date limite de réception des dossiers : 30 juin 2014. (Voir formulaire de candidature)

Aufruf zur Einreichung von Vorschlägen für einen künstlerischen
Auftrag
Neue Erzählungen über die Raumfahrt

Betreff: Im Jahr 2014 feiern wir das 50-jährige Jubiläum der europäischen Weltraumodyssee. Zu
diesem Anlass möchte das Observatoire de l’Espace, das Laboratorium für Wissenschaften und Künste
des CNES (staatliches französisches Raumforschungszentrum) die Leistungsfähigkeit der
europäischen Konstruktion demonstrieren und zeigen, dass ihre Geschichte zu zeitgenössischen
Erzählungen inspirieren kann. Mit diesem Ziel wird zur Einreichung von Vorschlägen durch
französische und deutsche Künstler zum Schaffen eines audiovisuellen oder multimedialen Kunstwerks
auf Grundlage der Archive über die Geschichte der Raumfahrt aufgerufen.

Neue Erzählungen über die Raumfahrt oder Wie Raumfahrtobjekte zu Quellen für Erzählungen werden.
Seit seiner Gründung im Jahr 2000 verfolgt das Observatoire de l’Espace einen kulturellen bzw.
anthropologischen Ansatz zur Raumfahrt und schafft so neue Beziehungen zwischen Kunst und
Wissenschaft.
Das Laboratorium für Künste und Wissenschaften pflegt in diesem Sinne das materielle und
immaterielle Raumfahrt-Kulturerbe, das neben beweglichen und unbeweglichen Kulturgütern auch
Papier- und Tonarchive sowie Objekte aus populärer Kultur und Wissenschaftskultur umfasst. Dieser
Bestand wird durch die Arbeit von Forschern aus den Bereichen Human- und Sozialwissenschaften in
seinen Kontext eingeordnet. Augenzeugenberichte der Akteure des Abenteuers Raumfahrt sind
ebenfalls Teil dieses Dokumentationsmaterials.
Das Ziel dieser Aktion ist die Einleitung eines Schaffensprozesses, indem den Künstlern, die im
Rahmen des Programms „Werke und Vorstellungen zum Thema Raumfahrt“ begleitet werden,
umfangreiches dokumentarisches Material zur Verfügung gestellt wird. Das Observatoire de l’Espace
ist fest davon überzeugt, dass jedes Element des Abenteuers Raumfahrt Quelle für zahlreiche
wirtschaftliche, wissenschaftliche, politische und kulturelle Berichte war und dass jedes dieser Objekte
zu neuen zeitgenössischen Erzählungen inspirieren kann.
Auf dieser Grundlage lädt das Observatoire de l’Espace heute Künstler ein, in das Abenteuer
Raumfahrt einzutauschen und sich auf ein symbolträchtiges Projekt der europäischen Geschichte, das
Programm Symphonie zu konzentrieren. Im Juni 1967 haben Frankreich und die Bundesrepublik
Deutschland beschlossen, ihre Bemühungen zur Konstruktion des ersten europäischen
Telekommunikationssatelliten zu bündeln. Die technischen Ansprüche an dieses Projekt sollten den
Satelliten auf höchstem internationalen Niveau ansiedeln. Der Beförderung der beiden Satelliten in den
Orbit in den Jahren 1974 und 1975 und ihre Nutzung bis 1984 waren das Ergebnis langer Jahre
politischer, technologischer und industrieller Konsense zwischen den beiden europäischen Ländern im
Kontext einer Raumfahrtentwicklung, die von den Vereinigten Staaten und der Sowjetunion dominiert
wurde.
Dieser Aufruf zur Einreichung von Vorschlägen an französische und deutsche Künstler ist von der
Ambition geleitet, eine zeitgenössische Geschichtsschreibung der europäischen Raumfahrt
gleichermaßen aus deutscher und aus französischer Sicht umzusetzen. In diesem Rahmen werden vier
Werke von zwei französischen und zwei deutschen Künstlern geschaffen. Sie werden während einer
Ausstellungsveranstaltung im CNES in Paris im Rahmen der „Nuit Blanche“ (schlaflose Nacht), am
Samstag, den 4. Oktober 2014 präsentiert. Die „Nuit Blanche“ ist eine vom Pariser Rathaus organisierte
Veranstaltung, die der zeitgenössischen Kunst gewidmet ist und in der Nacht des ersten
Oktoberwochenendes ein großes Publikum an Orte zieht, die exklusiv zu dieser Gelegenheit geöffnet
sind. Darüber hinaus wird eine Version der Werke, die maximal 30 Minuten lang sein dürfen, auf einer
DVD herausgebracht, die einer Publikation mit begrenzter Auflage des Observatoire de l’Espace zum
Anlass des 50-jährigen Jubiläums des europäischen Abenteuers Raumfahrt beigelegt wird. Des
Weiteren können die Werke ebenfalls in Berlin an einem noch festzulegenden Ort präsentiert werden.

Zunächst müssen die Künstler sich den illustrierten Überblick einer Archivauswahl zum Projekt
Symphonie (http://petitlien.fr/Symphonie) ansehen, um ihren künstlerischen Vorschlag zu schreiben. Auf Grundlage
dieser ersten Dokumentation schlagen Sie ein Projekt vor, das eine starke künstlerische Sichtweise
ausdrückt und deren ästhetische und intellektuelle Ambitionen die Herausforderungen hervorheben, die
mit dem Projekt Symphonie einhergegangen sind. Der dokumentarische Ansatz ist jedoch nicht der
einzig mögliche. Die Künstler können auch einen fiktiven Ansatz wählen oder experimentelle Formen
vorschlagen, jedoch immer im Hinblick auf diesen Teil der Raumfahrtgeschichte. Der Künstler muss
das Wesen seiner Arbeit im direkten Zusammenhang mit einer Archivquelle beschreiben, von der er
einige Beispiele im Anhang findet. Die Art der Nutzung der Archive liegt im Ermessen des Einzelnen,
sofern die Integrität der audiovisuellen Elemente gewahrt bleibt. Dem Künstler steht es ebenfalls frei,
sein Werk durch eigene Quellen zu ergänzen. In jedem Fall muss der Künstler seine künstlerischen
Entscheidungen im Hinblick auf das Projekt in einer Absichtserklärung begründen und angeben, wie er
das vorgeschlagene Material (zugrunde liegende Inspirationselemente, Nutzung des Rohmaterials aus
dem Archiv, Nutzung von Auszügen, Nutzung von reinen Tondokumenten, usw.) einbeziehen will.
Hinsichtlich der genutzten Technik wird dem Künstler große Freiheit gelassen. Er muss sich jedoch im
audiovisuellen oder multimedialen Bereich bewegen und die Präsentationsformen des Werks
berücksichtigen (Video, Installation, digitale Kreation, Fotographie), um dem Projekt einen zeitgemäßen
Charakter zu verleihen.
Nach der Auswahlphase erhalten die Künstler über Dropbox Zugang zu einem beträchtlichen
Dokumentationskorpus, der aus Filmen, Dokumenten, Foto- und Tonarchiven sowie wissenschaftlichen
Daten besteht.
Im Rahmen der Veranstaltung zur „Nuit Blanche“ erhält jeder der vier in Betracht gezogenen
Künstler einen Bereich im Ausstellungssaal der CNES, wo er sein Werk in der Form seiner Wahl
(Videoprojektion, Aufstellung, Aufhängung) ausstellen kann. Der Künstler muss sein Werk zusätzlich in
einer speziell an die DVD angepassten Form entwerfen, die der Publikation des Observatoire de
l’Espace beigelegt wird.

Zulassungskriterien
Dieser Aufruf zur Einreichung von Vorschlägen richtet sich an professionelle Einzelkünstler oder
Künstlergruppen:
- Alter zum Zeitpunkt der Einreichung der Unterlagen mindestens 18 Jahre
- Nationalität: Französisch oder Deutsch
Der Künstler reicht einen Vorschlag ein, der frei von jeglichen Rechten (Video, Ton und Bild) ist und
bei dem die unten angegebenen rechtlichen und finanziellen Bedingungen eingehalten werden.
Darüber hinaus hält er sich an den im Bewerbungsformular angegebenen Zeitplan.

Auswahl
Die Auswahl erfolgt auf Grundlage einer Absichtserklärung und einer Zusammenfassung der
Vorgehensweise des Künstlers im Vergleich zu seinem Dossier, in dem seine vorherigen Werke
präsentiert sind. Die Unterlagen werden von einer Kulturkommission hinsichtlich folgenden Punkten
bewertet: allgemeine Vorgehensweise des Künstlers, Zutreffen der zum Ausdruck gebrachten Aussage
und Originalität des Blicks auf diesen Teil der Raumfahrtgeschichte, der durch die Auswahl starker
ästhetischer Mittel ausgedrückt wird. Der Künstler muss die Art des Dialogs zwischen dem Werk und
seinem Produktionskontext deutlich herausstellen: Die Arbeit mit einem Archivkorpus und die doppelte
Form der Präsentation des Werks: bei der Ausstellung und auf einem DVD-Datenträger. Das Ergebnis
der Auswahl wird den vier in Betracht gezogenen Künstlern (2 französische und 2 deutsche) Anfang
Juli per E-Mail mitgeteilt. Das gesamte dokumentarische Material wird ihnen anschließend per Dropbox
zur Schaffung ihrer Werke zur Verfügung gestellt. Ein Studientag zu den zahlreichen durch das Projekt
Symphonie aufgeworfenen Problemstellungen wird im Juli in Paris veranstaltet.

Produktion der Werke und Vergütung der Künstler
Jedem der 4 ausgewählten Künstler wird ein Budget von 2500 € zugewiesen. 1500 € werden für die
Produktion der Werke vergeben und 1000 € für die Abtretung der Urheberrechte an dem Werk. Letztere
Summe ist an die Lieferung des Werks nach definitiver Akzeptanz durch das Observatoire de l’Espace
des CNES gebunden. Dieses behält sich das Recht vor, das Werk nicht zu präsentieren. In diesem Fall
wird nur das Produktionsbudget ausgezahlt. Die Nutzungsbedingungen für das Werk werden in einem
Vertrag mit den ausgewählten Künstlern festgehalten.
Nutzungsrechte der Archivbilder entsprechend ihrer Nutzung durch die Künstler zur Schaffung des
Werks. Es wird darauf hingewiesen, dass das CNES und das DLR (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und
Raumfahrt) sowie dazugehörige noch lebende Personen in den vorgeschlagenen Werken nicht explizit
genannt werden dürfen. Darüber hinaus können Werke mit rassistischen oder pornographischen
Absichten unabhängig von jeglicher Beurteilung hinsichtlich der Qualität des Werks nicht in dieser
Fassung akzeptiert werden, wobei diese Fragen von Fall zu Fall zu beurteilen sind.
Das Observatoire de l’Espace übernimmt die Reise- und Unterbringungskosten für den
Begegnungstag mit den ausgewählten Künstlern und für die Zeit vom Aufbau am 2. Oktober bis zu der
Veranstaltung am 4. Oktober 2014. Es übernimmt ebenfalls die Produktion der DVD-Ausgabe sowie die
Hintergrundgestaltung der Ausstellung für die präsentierten Projekte. In der Auswahlphase erfolgt
keinerlei Vergütung.

Die vollständigen Bewerbungsunterlagen müssen spätestens am Montag, den 30. Juni 2014,
per E-Mail oder per Post beim Observatoire de l’Espace eingehen. (Siehe Details auf dem
Bewerbungsformular)

CALL FOR ENTRY: NATIONAL ART MUSEUM OF SPORT'S 4th INTERNATIONAL COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE IN ART AND SPORT: A FINE ART COMPETITION

NAMOS’ competition is open to artists 18 and over who create fine art with a sport subject in three categories: 2D/Not Photography, 3D and Photography. Submissions are to be made on-line at http://www.nationalartmuseumofsport.org/competition/2013-2014. An artist may enter up to three works for $35 and additional works at $10 each. There is no limit for entries; however, only one entry will be eligible for a competition prize.

Jurors, Adrienne Ruger Conzelman, Jean Marie Cote and Andrew Schoelkopf, will select 30 pieces for an exhibit September 7 to November 3, 2014, in the New Canaan Historical Society, New Canaan, Conn. They will also be featured in a downloadable, digitalized illustrated catalogue.

NAMOS seeks museum-quality art depicting sport that goes beyond the images seen in the media. It strives to spur artists to create work that expresses the essence of sport whether it is action, excitement of competition, rewards of teamwork, or the honor of playing by the rules. It is a competition that values little known sports as much as those that dominate the airwaves.

Jurors will choose three medalists in each of the three categories – 2D/Not Photography, 3D and Photography – and three $2,500 award winners. The awards will be the Germain G. Glidden Best of Show prize, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Honoring Academic and Athletic Excellence in Painting award and the NCAA Honoring Academic and Athletic Excellence in Sculpture award. The NCAA is a sponsor of the competition.

To qualify for one of the two NCAA awards, the art must evoke collegiate athletes’ intersection with academics, past or present, in one of the NCAA sports: baseball, basketball, bowling, cross country, fencing, field hockey, football, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, track and field, lacrosse, rifle, rowing, skiing, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, volleyball, water polo, and wrestling.

This Contest is subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations. Certain restrictions may apply. Please read contest rules, terms and conditions before applying.

Deadline July 7.

De Nieuwe Ruimte

Derde Wal wil in het seizoen van 2014/2015 interactie, experiment en uitwisseling van artistieke opvattingen over de publieke ruimte van het Waalfront in Nijmegen onderzoeken en presenteren. Dit project krijgt de titel De Nieuwe Ruimte.

De plannen van de gemeente Nijmegen voor het Waalfront zijn helaas uitgesteld. Hierop willen we graag anticiperen door het Waalfront levendig en aantrekkelijk te houden, zonder dat we ons willen mengen in details van de invulling ervan. Van belang is de situatie die nu is ontstaan en met deze gedachte zullen er kunstenaars geselecteerd worden
Derde Wal geeft in dit project ruimte en tijd aan beeldend kunstenaars en biedt hen de gelegenheid te experimenteren in de openbare ruimte van het Waalfront. Deze projecten in de buitenruimte zijn tijdelijk en willen aantonen hoe het nog onontgonnen gebied van het Waalfront kan groeien.

Derde Wal nodigt kunstenaars uit een positie in te nemen. We vragen kunstenaars een nieuw, confronterend, verruimend of verrassend perspectief te geven op de ruimte van het Waalfront.

Stuur een voorstel en een klein portfolio vergezeld van een cv naar info@derdewal.nl

Budapest Memento - 2 week-long workshop, installation art/photography, 18th-31st August

The first week of the course will focus on research and planning while the second week will be dedicated to the realization of the individual projects.
The workshop will be guided by renowned Hungarian artists and curators.

How will it work?

The participants will be actively involved in all phases of the project from preparation to follow-up. During the project implementation phase, participants will be asked to participate in non-formal learning sessions for about 8 hours per day. All methods used will be of non-formal character.

Who are we?
UILDM Lazio ONLUS

UILDM is present in Italy with over 70 branches; it is a no-profit organisation whose aims are to foster the social inclusion of people with disabilities and to promote research, prevention and assistance in the field of neuromuscular diseases.
UILDM Lazio ONLUS was founded in Rome in 1967. It is the branch with the highest amount of members in the national network, providing social and rehabilitation services to over a thousand users having neuromuscular diseases in the Lazio region. Besides, a relevant percentage of the staff in the organisation is people with disabilities. Besides medical and scientific services, the Sezione Laziale della UILDM is engaged in raising public awareness concerning a culture of disability, in improving quality of life and promoting equal opportunities. UILDM’s Social Integration Service Area (ASIS) offers support services, guidance and counseling to promote Independent Living. The philosophy of our work is to help our users in becoming active protagonists by promoting processes of autonomy and independence.
Our international non-formal learning projects
Since 2004 we organise international projects such as training courses, European Voluntary Projects etc. to promote experiential activities for young people with and without disabilities. The objective is active participation and learning by doing. Those activities have significantly increased both the quantity and the quality of the initiatives in terms of participation of young people with special needs, in particular those with disabilities, in intercultural experiences which encourage their self growth. This work has allowed the association to become an active member in a network of organisations who are committed to increasing the opportunities for European mobility for young people with special needs and to gradually raise awareness among the associations on the inclusion of people with disabilities in international projects.

Information on Theatre of the Oppressed (TO):

Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) is an aesthetic method created by Brazilian playwright Augusto Boal that stimulates critical observation and representation of reality, envisioning the production of consciousness and concrete actions. In the last decades Theater of the Oppressed games, exercises and techniques have became powerful tools for many practitioner across the world. This participatory art form is meant and applied as an empowering and liberating practice that inspires individual and collective transformation.
In this week long training the youth workers will explore and learn how to apply TO in group facilitation in diverse groups and contexts to inspire “creation and re-creation” of community through a creative dialogue.

Training themes: TO games, exercises and techniques for youth workers

TO aims to inspire creativity, build solidarity within a group, focus on dynamics and tendencies of human beings and evoking a creative dialogue/brainstorming on social issues.
TO is a great way to expand the boundaries of what we think we are capable of doing, promote self-expression, evoke “community spirit” and a great tool for social workers and educators working with/in various groups. In the training we will learn how, TO Games*, Newspaper Theater*, Image Theater*, Forum Theater*, Cops in the Heads* and Participatory Photography can be used to mediate and facilitate dialogue within groups and with larger audiences.
We will engage and explore the numerous possibilities and “ways” in which TO can be applied in various contexts. Be it by looking at examples across the world and by planning and imagining future practice in the participants various contexts.
By giving vision into our action we can later transform the vision into multiplicity of actions.

* TO Games - When we play, we break out of our “comfort zones”; we challenge ourselves in new directions and we gain important insights that we can implement in our lives. While playing games in a group we “break the ice” and build trust while gaining “embodied knowledge” on various issues. games-exercises can serve us to create an “opening ritual” and other games-exercises can serve as “closing ritual”, “rituals” that create and re-create the community spirit in the group.

* Image Theater – A technique that explores situations and sensations through the body. The image of the body that freezes in an aesthetic statue is polysemic; it has many meanings which allows people to project in stories that they recognize as theirs, problems that they relate with. Image theater is extremely useful in group facilitation to “discover & research” the topics and messages “embodied” within the group and the participants.

* Forum Theater - an extremely helpful tool while tackling social questions and to engage in a creative brain-storming and problem-solving session as a group. Through the practice of Forum theater participants develop a deeper knowledge of themselves and of the reality, become open to the plurality of interpretations, train themselves to change problematic situations in a creative way, experiment the power of solidarity.
The role of the joker is central to Forum theater -and TO in general-, who is the meiotic master of ceremony, that facilitates the dialogue.

* Newspaper theater - Another great way to introduce themes and enrich the work of a creative group. It allows to observe the subjectivity of a text and it is possible to create an original theater work and meaningful discussions starting from it.

* Cops in the Heads - In this technique we use theater to give visibility to the invisible voices inside us, fears, social expectations, internalized oppressions, and also voices that give us the interior strength to be ourselves. Participants learn how to use physical images to explore the socio-dramatic and the socio-therapeutic.

* Participatory Photography - Photos are explored as testimonies of memory, “snaps” from the present, gates for imagination, collages in which each image become a piece of a bigger story, a metaphor, a message. Participants develop a capacity to communicate through images, to pass from concrete to abstract, from personal to collective. They are empowered by using the camera as a form of artistic expression, by creating their own unique art, reclaiming the images of the world around them and becoming the creator instead of the subject of the images.

Susan Sontag

The company has become well known for its rigorous investigation of indigenous and ancient musical traditions, its powerful physical and vocal techniques, its commitment to the creation of theatre in a natural environment, and its emphasis on principles of mutuality and musicality (...)"

ART Habens International Call for Artists - 2014

ART Habens is launching a call for submissions to find the most interesting emerging worldwide artists.

This year’s edition will focus on a recurrent paradox in contemporary art: the vague and ambiguous but thoroughly entrenched boundaries between the different practices of new media.

In particular it will engage with artists dealing with process-driven changes in our society, who pair their observations with new media technologies to produce their art projects: this competition aims to give the impetus and opportunity to artists (fine art, mixed media, fashion, design, performance, photography, video making, etc.) to work between the boundaries of Contemporary Art.

Submit your artworks

The submission is open to all artists: there are no restrictions regarding the age or nationality of the applicant. Also groups and collectives are accepted to participate.

We are reaching out to the whole creative community to come together and express their opinions on the cultural sector’s changes and how it is affecting creative people. Our aim is that we show the world that we do have a voice and that the creative and cultural industry is not only vital to our economy but also vital to us as people.

Studio21 has over the last five years, established a reputation of showing experimental, new and innovative works, which reflects the cross-currents of influences of a cosmopolitan, artistic and literate society. Its moorings are Indian but its practices are non-traditional.
The residences are in the heart of Calcutta and in safe and secure locations. They are modern, fully-equipped apartments.
The residency period is for four weeks, at the end of which, the visiting artist can exhibit or do a presentation of their study in the gallery space of Studio21.
For more detailed information, do visit: www.studio21kolkata.com
We hope your department / Program will consider this Residency project for its students and faculty.
Best Wishes,
Manas Acharya Pratiti Basu Sarkar
(Curator,coordinator – Studio21) (Chief Administrator – CIMA Gallery)

Moonee Art Space

Moonee Art Space (MAS), is a contemporary art space for creative thinking, doing and presnting. MAS building is listed as a heritage place.

The initiator of MAS, Fatima Vafa, has been guided solely by the inspiration of forming a centre that is run, established and developed by artists, for artists.
Its formation may be analogous to the evolution of a work of art itself, as it goes through an open-ended journey.
Fatima welcomes challenge and even creative chaos in order to ‘take it from there.’ In this way, MAS provides a space for what artists need to do:
speculate, experiment, practise and show. Moonee Art Space supports artists’individual programs and provides
resources to realise their aims.

In its Artist in Residency program, practising, established and emerging artists will be welcomed to apply for residencies, fostering a dialogue with local artists. MAS will encourage a focus on contemporary practice and exhibit or publish the collaborative results.

​​MAS will also offer a range of programs from exhibitions and residencies for emerging and established artists, to workshops and teaching programs for all ages.

MAS welcomes artists for whom environmental sustainability is a central part of their vision. At the same level all other inspirational expressions are also welcome to apply.

Moonee Art space is located in the very heart of cultural and business area of Moonee Ponds (Moonee Ponds Junction.) There are shopping centers, cafes and restaurant just under the MAS. Public transports to down town Melbourne and many other part of the city are just on the other side of the street. Moonee Ponds is very close to downtown and other very cultural and artistic area of Melbourne.

Oultopia Residency in Oulchy-le-Chateau, France

Oultopia is a residency for artists, Francophiles, and all adventure-seeking individuals in Oulchy-le-Chateau, France. Each year, seven lucky winners are drawn via raffle to participate in the Oultopia retreat. This year, raffle participants have a chance to win an all-inclusive trip to the Oultopia residency (airfare included) for 10 days during the summer of 2014. Winners are drawn on January 1st, 2014!

Through this residency-by-raffle program, Oultopia seeks to permanently establish a place of residence for the promotion of cultural, historical, and artistic interests in the region of Picardy. Those who are looking to broaden their cultural horizons, engage with history, meet new people, or just venture to a unique place are highly encouraged to participate in the Oultopia raffle. Furthermore, by purchasing a raffle ticket you are helping to fund the long-term establishment of a center for cultural and artistic exchange.

Oultopia is situated in the center of Oulchy-le-Chateau, on a historic property. The mansion on this property was built and rebuilt across the centuries and has ample room to comfortably host many guests at a time. The foundation of the house, known as the "pillar room", was carbon-dated to the twelfth century, when it is likely to have served as a Templar commandery. The property also boasts a forest, an orchard, and several "elevated gardens", making it the perfect site to host a retreat for people of all horizons and backgrounds.

Oulchy-le-Chateau is a small commune about 60 miles outside of Paris in the department of l'Aisne. The history of this town extends far into antiquity: it was a coin mint during Ancient Roman times, a hotbed of Templar activity during medieval times, and the site of innumerable battles during the Hundred Years War, Franco-Prussian war, and both World Wars. It is also known for having fostered human life as early as the Lower Paleolithic era, as can be observed in the numerous "boves" (caves) that are carved into the cliffs of this geologically fascinating area. Furthermore, Oulchy is known for having hosted the poet La Fontaine, who lived nearby. He, undoubtedly, found inspiration there for his famous Fables de la Fontaine. As if historicity was not enough, Oulchy-le-Chateau is also an extremely hospitable place. Lodged between the great plains of Picardy, it is home to peace and quiet, beautiful vistas, and the reputable food of France's countryside.

Please visit www.oultopia.org to purchase a raffle ticket, or for more information on this project. Visit our facebook page at www.facebook.com/oultopia for more pictures and video.

Oultopia is a non-profit project in association with the Loren Kahn Puppet and Object Theater.

Zhuzihu Eco Arts Collective Artist-in-residence Program

Collective Wisdom Artist-in-residence Program
Collective intelligence is the capacity of human communities to evolve towards higher order complexity and harmony, through such innovation mechanisms as differentiation and integration, competition and collaboration.
We could say that people have all the wisdom they need to solve the world’s problems. As change agents we therefore create situations in which this wisdom naturally comes forth.
We are providing a residency and exhibition space at a sustainable community project near Taipei Taiwan. The community emphasizes on cooperation and interaction between individuals, between the community and the public, also between ideologies/cultures. We're building a platform to develop a communicative and functional lifestyle that is inclusive and productive.
It is an experimental project to create beyond usual forms of art, and to bring awareness to the space, the mundane life, and the presence of consciousness. It is also provocative, destructive and revolutionary to bring up the questions we are asking ourselves and the society, the Matrix, how we should exist as part of the whole? Where is our standpoint in the flow of history and chaos?
And what can we do with our consciousness creatively, as a positive metaphor to open up more possibilities?
We invite you to play with these ideas with us, jam and inspire us.

Submission
Applications are accepted throughout the year. If you can only participate as an Artist-in-Residence at a specific time, please submit this application at least 2 weeks in advance and be sure to note those dates in the provided space.
Along with your work samples please email all your materials to:info.zhuzihu@gmail.com. Please include your first / last name and “Artist-in-Residency Application” in the subject of your email.

Provide
Our community will provide you with accommodation, outdoor workshop space, exhibition/performance space, vegetarian food, internet access(for ipad), and some traveling opportunities to engage with similar projects in Taiwan.
The residency is 2 weeks, which can be extended; artists can work on their own projects and/or contribute to the community by holding workshops, or adding ideas to improve our current space and environment. Since we are an artist-run organization, artists are responsible for their own travel expense here and back.

The selection criteria includes
- artist whose contribution would incarnates the spirit of alternative lifestyle according to proposal
- works suitable for public exhibition
- works that are functional, or transforming things/space/environment into a functional one
- works that encourage inspiring interaction and conversation between the community and the public
- works created out of local, natural or abandoned material

The documents will be reviewed by all community members.
