Call for entries: artists' long format film
•Application Deadline

01.02.2012

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

We are looking for a quality, original idea that will appeal to a large audience and be delivered as a long format film by the full range of creative talent in both film and dance/performance that is available in the UK and beyond. We envisage the commissioned film-maker/s as being willing to explore the boundaries within the chosen film genre and its relationship to the intrinsic qualities of dance and/or performance within film.

We are looking for exciting, feasible proposals that can be made with a development and production budget of between approximately £120K and £400K.

We are looking for projects from artists and film makers who demonstrate the ability to conceive and deliver an extremely strong film, for a highly competitive marketplace.

Presented by Portland Green Cultural Projects, FLAMIN and the Hayward Gallery, ALFF (artists' long format film) is the working abbreviation for a commission for a film in any genre; creative documentary, drama, artists' film, cinematic essay or animation, which uses dance/performance as a driver.

The commission is inspired by the recent critical successes of artists' long format films which have clearly demonstrated the range of contemporary performance styles that can be used effectively in long format films and still attract a mainstream audience.

Hegel and Spinoza, negativity in contemporary theory
•Application Deadline

03.02.2012

Whether under the name of lack, nothingness, non-being, void, splitting,
torsion, or clinamen, the problem of negativity is central to contemporary
philosophy. The hypothesis of this workshop is that many of the current
debates revolving around this key issue—from Lacanians and Deleuzians,
Althusserians and Heideggerians, philosophers of contradiction and
antagonism and thinkers of affirmation and multiplicity—consist in a
productive repetition of one of the crucial controversies of 19th century
thought, summed up by the names ‘Hegel and Spinoza’.

Gregor Moder will present his paper “Hegel and Spinoza. Negativity in
Contemporary Theory,” followed by a response by Pascale Gillot, and
plenty of time for discussion.

The Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry is an independent centre for research and culture dedicated to exploring how diverse cultures can be brought into productive rather than pernicious confrontation. It takes 'culture' in a broad sense to include cultures associated with different identities (such as age, class, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religion, sexuality), spaces (such as city, internet, work) or discourses (such as art, economics, law, media, politics, science). It understands 'culture' as a contested and problematic notion and remains open to its various meanings in relation to other terms (such as implicit knowledge, nature, signifying practice, structure of feeling, ways of life).

•Application Deadline

06.02.2012

221A Artist Run Centre is seeking project proposals from curators commencing late 2012. 221A has implemented the curatorial residencies program to encourage a diversity of curatorial approaches to this nascent interdisciplinary field. Emerging and professional curators and curatorial collectives are encouraged to submit which may include recent graduates and practicing artists, designers and architects. Projects may include exhibitions, performances, publications, talks or workshops. Proposals should discuss a viewpoint, theory, or approach that the project hopes to foster as well as include its relation to the organizations mandate.

http://221a.ca/call2012-13

221A Artist Run Centre is a non-profit organization that supports and facilitates dialogue between contemporary art and design. 2012 will mark the organizations fourth year of programming artistic and curatorial practices in Canada. Since its inception in 2005, the organization has quickly become a foothold for ‘Critical Design’ – an emerging field of contemporary art that seeks out a wider space for work that examines and challenges the application and implementation of design. The activity of design has been increasingly limited to market-oriented practices, where designers are left without a critical space for investigation around the lived effect of designed graphics, products and architecture – the use and development of social codes and conventions. 221A maintains assertive efforts to pay above CARFAC rates to curators and contemporary artists who work with or around these capacities.

Triple Canopy - Call for proposals 2012
•Application Deadline

13.02.2012

Artists
Triple Canopy welcomes artist projects that treat the Internet as a medium and seek to develop ideas that engage with—but reach beyond—its specific qualities and attendant modes of readership and viewership. Which is to say we’re most excited by projects that present original artwork made for the Web, but are not necessarily Net art...

Writers
In part because Triple Canopy is an online journal, we’re most interested in writing that, in its form, considers and utilizes the Internet as a medium with its own specific qualities and attendant modes of readership. This may mean thinking beyond the strictures of linear narrative or deliberately incorporating visual and audio media. That said, quality prose, an original (or patently unoriginal) approach to poetry and cross-genre writing, and compelling subject matter are of utmost interest to us, and there’s no need to embellish a great piece of writing with hyperlinks and YouTube clips...

Triple Canopy is an online magazine, workspace, and platform for editorial and curatorial activities. Working collaboratively with writers, artists, and researchers, Triple Canopy facilitates projects that engage the Internet’s specific characteristics as a public forum and as a medium, one with its own evolving practices of reading and viewing, economies of attention, and modes of interaction. In doing so, Triple Canopy is charting an expanded field of publication, drawing on the history of print culture while acting as a hub for the exploration of emerging forms and the public spaces constituted around them. Triple Canopy is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.

Art Vs Law: An inherent Conflict?
•Application Deadline

17.02.2012

Lecturer: Alan Cunnigham, Ph.D. in Intellectual Property Law and Theory

This course will provide a better understanding of issues concerning certain forms of contemporary art and copyright law, specifically topics related to appropriation, contractual issues and moral rights.

Beginning with a historical and philosophical exploration of the emergence of the political act of appropriation in art, it moves to then examining how the law has intervened when it has been felt - by artists or others - that certain appropriations are 'too much' and concludes with practical lessons for the artist about utilizing copyright and contract law to facilitate their practice instead of letting such laws restrict or prevent it.

Venue:
Potsdamer Str. 91
10785 Berlin

From February 19 to 26, 2012, the Citizen Art Days pilot project will take place in Berlin’s public space and the Freies Museum Berlin. The project has been initiated by the “Parallel Worlds” artist group (Stefan Krüskemper, María Linares and Kerstin Polzin) with support from the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (“German Federal Agency for Civic Education”).

At Citizen Art Days renowned artists and urban actors examine Berlin's public space together with interested citizens using artistic strategies. Growing segregation within the social space leads to the erosion of the "public space" as a location for social communication and democratic processes.

The Citizen Art Days will be officially launched on Sunday February 19, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. in the Freies Museum Berlin and will include a Bastelperformance (“Handicraft Performance”) by the philosopher Hanno Depner.

48 Stunden Neukölln - registration deadline
•Application Deadline

29.02.2012

Under the device of Terminus:Neukölln, we invite artists to reflect the interesting but yet con-troversial discussed metamorphose of Neukölln. The subject matter is motivated by the 275th anniversary of the Bohemian migration to Rixdorf (Neukölln) on June 15th 1737 and the question what effect immigration has had on Neukölln since 1737.

Various generations of immigrants have settled in Neukölln in search of their own private happi-ness. The question whether they have found their own personal paradise here remains. Also, why have so many artists moved to Neukölln recently – and what impact has this had on life in the district? The public perception of Neukölln varies between hell fire and paradise.

residency / fellowship



radi0.tv Residency - Broadcasting offline
•Application Deadline

29.02.2012

We are looking for Cultural Producers with an interdisciplinary
approach and affinity to Sound and Radio from different countries
who want to realise artistically and / or theoretically a thematic or
media work in Berlin in April or May 2012. Between 01/04 - 30/04 or
01/05 - 31/05/2012 (in agreement) Our proposal for a Topic is:
"Broadcasting offline". The imperative of radio seems to be the
permanent airing and working with a sender. This is worded
consciously in a naive way since the matter is to put into question
exactly this media topos of the radio, the broadcasting with a
broadcaster. William S. Burroughs was testing broadcasting without
a broadcaster like revolution, wasn't he? Our interest focuses
especially on processual dispositions which not necessarily end up
in a track, a recording or a radio program but which could be
transmitted.
