CALL for PROJECT PROPOSALS for FLAT SPACE (2012/2013)

In the frame of KIOSK project Oberliht Association calls artists from Moldova to submit project proposals to be presented at FLAT SPACE every month, as an intervention into it.

FLAT SPACE is a functional replica of a socialist apartment, commissioned to represent the identity of the KIOSK project. The point of departure for the design of the FLAT SPACE was to publicly display the private space of a flat limited by the standards of the socialist society. The transparency and the openness of the flat give the exposure to an architectural model extracted from the flat building that is composed from few basic elements characteristic to societies in transitions: the main façade with a balcony covered with plastic windows, dining room, kitchen and bathroom: http://chiosc.oberliht.com/apartament/
Please send your project proposals and a short CV before the 15th of every month to: vladimir[@]oberliht.org.md

project proposal / project support

Research Project - UKS Unge Kunstneres Samfund, Oslo

We invite you participate in a research project initiated by Linus Elmes, Director of UKS. The project is supported by the Norwegian Art Council and conducted in association with Torpedo Press, Norway.

We are currently collecting facsimile material to be published in an Encyclopaedia with the working title "No Gods, No Parents". Our intention is to reflect the experience of autonomous artistic practice. We are aiming to reveal the unconscious cognitive system of individual artists, curators, thinkers and others involved in the self-organized and artist run scene.

We are not commissioning texts but collecting existing documents of various forms, such as: invitations, manifestos, proposals, lists, applications, correspondence, legal and financial statements, formal requests and letters of intent.



We think that you, due to your experience in the field, might have such material; something you consider to be of extraordinary interest, something that reveals the very fundamentals of your practice and/or mechanisms that constitute the context that you operate within.

We would kindly ask you to share documents with us. It can be any number of pages but it has to be scanned and sent to us by email as an image or a PDF, or printed and sent by post.
We hope that you consider participating and contributing to the encyclopaedia, however there will be a selection process and we cannot guarantee the publication of all sent material.

Our intention is to reach out as far as possible and we invite you to forward this to other possible contributors!

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

Stichting KiK Kolderveen, The Netherlands

The former dairy factory in which KiK is located, provides an opportunity to the artist in residence to work and live at an extraordinary place given its industrial heritage. The studio, the guest accommodations and the comprehensive 'Kaashal' (a large hall in which cheese used to be processed) with its corresponding cellar are great exhibition spaces, all evoke a fierce industrial atmosphere. For the artists this lends a powerful support to push and intensify their work and process.

THE CENTER FOR LAND USE INTERPRETATION - Wendover Residence Program

Residence benefits and responsibilities

Successful applicants to the residence program are given full use of the physical plant of the CLUI at Wendover, including a place to live (with a bedroom, bathroom, internet connection, and equipped kitchen), workshop (with basic shop tools), and our knowledge of the surrounding land and its people.

Occasionally stipends and project support are available, but applicants are encouraged to seek their own funding sources for project expenses and materials.

Residents generally stay for a period of three to six weeks, during which time they will be expected to conduct work that examines, engages, or reflects the land uses of the surrounding area. The duration of the residence does not need to be continuous. Some applicants may wish to make a preliminary reconnaissance visit to further acquaint themselves with the environs, though an orientation packet that describes the area is provided to all residents before arrival.

The program operates seasonally, from April 1 to November 20. Though resident selections are made on an ongoing basis, with no deadlines, the sooner the application is sent, the more likely the requested time period will be available. A peer review committee meets approximately every four months to examine and comment on the applications.
