CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Slow Tech | Studio XX

Deadline: Sunday, January 19th, 2020

Before submitting a proposal, candidates are strongly encouraged to consult Studio XX’s mandate, equipment list and previous programming.

 

– SLOW TECH – 

Studio XX is a feminist artist centre dedicated to the exploration, creation and production in media arts as well as critical reflection on the many changes that digital culture is having on societies*. Despite this well-considered position and these good intentions, the technological equipment inherent to the disciplines within its artistic niche implicates Studio XX in a consumerist plight that is at odds with the current environmental crisis. In light of this observation, Studio XX is imbued with ideas, observations and reflections as well as the transversal values of ecofeminisms. We are inviting artists and members of the community to take a technocritical distance.   

 

Until 2022, Studio XX will be Slow Tech. More than just a theme, this position will be comprised of three aspects:

— Environment

Ecological footprint; destruction, conservation or ecosystem restoration; relationship to consumption, sustainable development; degrowth; digital sobriety; benefits and pitfalls of science; urban sprawl; mobility, etc.

— Temporalities

In this era of acceleration and diminishing distances: alternatives to the race towards progress and the latest upgrades; obsolescence or durability; revisiting histories/Histories; slowness, the lifespan of technological devices; the imposed rhythms of life and work; the right to time, etc.

— Interactions

Ecology; social anchorage in various environments; creating family, intergenerational or intercultural links; networking; mental and emotional loads; care culture, etc.  

*By digital culture, we are referring to digital literacy practices that contribute to the development of an informed awareness of the languages and possibilities offered by the use of technologies. These practices are deployed in the interest of democratization, empowerment, and independence that are in opposition to the relationship of consumption and control over populations that technologies and corporate Web giants wield.

 

ADMISSIBILITY

– The project proposals must meet at least one of the Slow Tech aspects.

– We are looking for projects inspired by feminisms, ecofeminism, cyberfeminism and issues related to race and gender.

– Studio XX welcomes projects from artists, curators, and activists who identify as women, queer, trans, and non-binary as well as collectives and organizations that uphold feminist values.

– The proposals can take various forms: workshops, performances, exhibitions, punctual events/activities such as round tables and discussions, etc.  

– Proposals for unfinished projects are welcome, but candidates must cover the necessary production costs to finalize the project before it is presented as part of our programming.

– Studio XX favours artistic practices that rely on the use of computer, digital, audio, interactive or Web technologies.

 

SELECTION CRITERIA

– Quality of the candidate’s artistic work
– Relevance of the project in the context of media arts
– Consistency of the project with the feminist mandate of Studio XX
– The project must be part of Studio XX’s Slow Tech position
– Special attention will be paid this year to proposals that exploit the virtual reality devices and 3D printer that Studio XX has at their disposal

 

WHAT WE OFFER

Depending on the proposals selected, Studio XX will pay artist fees according to the recommended rates of the CQAM and CARFAC.

The selected projects will receive logistical and technical support to be defined by the centre’s team.

We are aware of the constraints that some people may experience. Our gallery and work space are accessible to people with disabilities. However, we are currently working to improve access to our washroom. If you have any questions or concerns about the Studio XX’s ability to accommodate you, do not hesitate to contact us.

HTMlles 2020 | Call for proposals

HTMlles: Feminist Festival of Media Arts + Digital Culture

14th edition, November 5 – 8, 2020, Montreal

Deadline: Monday, January, 27th 2020, 23:59 Montreal time (EST) 

 

Before submitting a proposal, candidates are strongly encouraged to consult Studio XX’s mandate and the previous HTMlles festival program. 

 

www.studioxx.org

www.htmlles.net

 

For more than twenty years Studio XX has been producing HTMlles, a feminist festival of media arts and digital culture. The festival has established itself as a socially-engaged space, addressing an urgent current issue with each edition. Every two years, HTMlles mobilizes local, national and international artists, theorists, and activists working at the intersection of art and technology, and unfolds in artist-run centres, cultural spaces, and university research laboratories throughout Montreal.

CALL HTMlles 2020 

The next edition of the HTMlles Festival will take place in 2020, 10 years before the fixed deadline set by the IPCC for implementing major changes that will limit global warming to 1.5 ˚C (1). In the meantime, public discourse about “crisis,” “cataclysm,” or even “apocalypse,” feeds the collective imagination, leading to an increasing sense of eco-anxiety. 

Despite this reality, state and intergovernmental infrastructures are steadily disengaging from prompt action by displacing the problem and its solutions onto individuals. At the same time, coordinated and sustainable initiatives are increasing: smart cities and life-saving algorithms are shifting our hopes towards utopian technological breakthroughs. However, these tools are biased, and perpetuate systems of economic and social inequalities. Facial recognition is a concrete example:

 

“Overall, men are better indexed by the algorithm than women. The same trend can be observed for people with light skin compared to those with darker complexions. […] The issue: the data chosen for the algorithm in the first place.” (2)

 

As we lose trust in our institutions, how can we rethink our environmental, economic, and social futures? Since September 2019, Studio XX has adopted a Slow Tech approach, taking a techno-critical and eco-feminist stance within media arts creation. The next edition of HTMlles aims to push this approach further by asking artists, activists, and theorists to imagine alternative futures and environments, outside of capitalist, racist, colonial, and patriarchal structures.

Eco-anxiety is growing in the face of an uncertain future and the smooth-talking discourses of state structures. How can we overcome the apathy caused by this solastalgia (3) in order to create alternative dynamics and temporalities? How can we channel the angry, trashy, and excessive, as well as the flawed and non-functional, into vectors of action and protest? Could the resilience of Do-It-Yourself movements inspire the construction of alternative worlds, allowing a shift away from power structures and digital utopias?

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

 

HTMlles is looking for projects that are freely articulated around these environmental, temporal and/or relational issues. These could be critical and creative proposals, inspired by (but not limited to) eco-feminisms, cyber-feminisms, queer studies, Afro-futurist, Sino-futurist and futurist indigenous movements, cli-fi, hopepunk and solarpunk, deconstructing greenwashing and whitewashing.

 

HTMlles welcomes proposals from artists, curators and activists who identify as women, trans, gender non-conforming, and queer, as well as from collectives and organizations that promote inclusive and intersectional feminist values.

 

We are looking for DIY, techno-critical, and innovative proposals. We hope that the projects proposed within the framework of this call will express, rethink, and explore topics related to the environmental crisis through a critical use of media arts and digital tools. 

Examples of media / formats: Virtual reality, videos, installations, IRL or URL performances, video game art, networked works, round tables, conferences, workshops, bio art, 3D animation, augmented reality, public interventions, geolocated media – or something so cutting-edge we haven’t even heard of it yet…

 

 

SELECTION CRITERIA 

– quality of the candidate’s work

– relevance of the project in the context of media arts

– coherence of the project with the feminist mandate of Studio XX and the HTMlles festival

– connection to the proposed theme

 

WHAT WE OFFER

Depending on the proposals selected, Studio XX and its HTMlles partners pay fees and honoraria in accordance with CQAM and CARFAC recommendations. 

The selected projects benefit from logistical and technical support defined with the centre’s team or its HTMlles partners. 

Our exhibition and work space is accessible to people with disabilities. However, we are currently working to improve access to our bathroom. If you have any questions or concerns about Studio XX or its ability to welcome you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
