Call For Artists // WeTilt

In this new age of technology making yourself stand out can feel near-impossible. And with art scenes hidden from the masses, it’s only by knowing the right person or hitting the right algorithm that an independent artist can monetize their skills, right? Well, we at WeTilt feel differently. Based in Rome, Italy- we are a team of young artists and art-lovers who are striving to give agency back to the independent artist with a platform worthy of what they produce.


We understand that creating takes time and the tools available today for artists wanting to share their work can be demanding which, ultimately, causes the art to suffer. With this in mind we hope to take a different approach to exhibiting art by making a space that while elegant, remains simple and intuitive. Furthermore, we will work closely with our artists; ensuring that their work is aptly represented in both the physical and digital realms.


As alluded: not only will our artists get to have their work displayed in exhibitions online, but also in our live pop-up exhibitions where pieces will be carefully selected and displayed alongside those of other artists from around the world. Our mission is to make a career in art possible for all and an important step towards this is our outreach program which aims to give artists in war-torn and impoverished countries the ability to make earnings from their work as well.

 In short WeTilt is a compendium of art with freedom of opportunity.

 Join the collective today.

Open Call Olfactory History of Oosterdok

In 2022, a large exhibition will take place in Amsterdam about the Olfactory History of Oosterdok, the eastern part of the old harbour of the city. Related to this exhibition, Mediamatic is issuing an open call for art and design projects that merge history and smell in new and interesting ways.


The Oosterdok area played an important role in the development of Amsterdam from the 13th century onwards, and is the place where a great deal of the Dutch colonial endeavours started and ended. Today, the Oosterdok is still undergoing rapid changes that reflect the nature of the city at large. Much has been written and showed about this history and its implications for our present, but what about that which cannot be so easily grasped in archives, libraries and museum collections? Because a city is not just a physical place, but is also formed by social relations, memories, emotions, and human experiences: all in which smell plays an important role. We are issuing an open call for art and design projects that merge history and smell in new and interesting ways.

From 2019 onwards, and in collaboration with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the cultural institutions united under the name ‘Expeditie Oosterdok’, Mediamatic is starting the research and development phase of the exhibition about the Olfactory History of Oosterdok, and it is in this context that we are issuing an open call for art and design projects that merge history and smell in new and interesting ways. What role does smell play in the development of a city? Can we trigger a kind of ‘historical unconsciousness’ and what does it mean if we do? How can we tell history differently, so that it also includes that which is not easily represented?

The open call

We are inviting proposals for prototype olfactory projects (art works, lectures, performances etc.) that can be presented around Oosterdok in the coming years leading up the blockbuster public event in 2022. Please note that the selection and execution of your project is not a guarantee for inclusion in the larger event, and that all proposals must have a strong public component (it is not possible to admit a research project). This call is open to artists, designers, perfumers, curators, researchers, and performers of all nationalities and ages, individuals as well as groups and collectives. To get an idea of what we are looking for/what is possible, please have a look at previous projects on the website of Mediamatic. If you are interested to participate, please submit your proposal through the following link, before July 1, 2019 (CET). A second open call will follow in the beginning of 2020.


What we have to offer

When selected, Mediamatic will work closely together with the artist(s) to realize the project, this includes assistance in finding appropriate funds and/or partners to cover a travel/living/production budget, as well as an artist fee. It is possible to stay at Mediamatic as an artist-in-residence and use the facilities on site, such as the Aroma Lab and Clean Lab.


Selection procedure

A small selection committee chaired by the artistic director of Mediamatic selects artists in 2 rounds; after sending in a first, short project proposal, you may be asked to submit more information, have a Skype interview or studio visit. After this second round, a final selection is made.


About Mediamatic

Mediamatic is an art centre dedicated to new developments in the arts since 1983. We organize lectures, workshops and art projects, focusing on nature, biotechnology and art+science in a strong international network. See for more info
