VIDEOHOLICA International Video Art Festival in Varna, Bulgaria launches open call for video art submissions for its 7th edition. This year’s edition of VIDEOHOLICA will be accompanied by an international panel discussion on the issues and opportunities for alternative video art distribution and creating on-site archive of video art in Bulgaria.

The 7th VIDEOHOLICA will take place between 1st and 7th August 2014 in Varna, Bulgaria.

The theme of VIDEOHOLICA 2014 is 7

DEADLINE for entries: 1 June 2014

7 appears to be a hyper functional number featuring multiple typical symbolic and meaningful encumbrances. According to many, 7 is a sacred or primal number, a symbol of beginning and creation. Others define 7 as the golden mean between the first number 1 and the odd 13. According to some, 7 symbolizes the end or death, because it closes a series of various human phenomena in a cycle of 7, after which nothing happens. There are concepts, according to which 7 symbolizes harmony, connectivity and integrity bringing together 3 as a symbol of the intangible and ideological and 4 – as that of intangible. If in this irrational syncretism the disposition of 7 is also a base (beginning), medium, end, and all taken together, then the math is definitely funny and a hypothetical artistic study – very curious.

In its 7th year, VIDEOHOLICA recognizes 7 as its own existential performativity, but not to highlight its existing complex symbolism but to provoke new multidirectional thinking, associations and interpretations beyond the real potentiality of 7. What does 7 count for/ depict? What is more and what is less than 7? Is 7 enough? Where is the place of 7 in today’s multitudinous/ multifunctional world? With these and other questions we are searching for poetic, abstract, ironic, conditional, metaphoric and literal comments on the moving image, committed to decompose the audio-visual and conceptual matrix of the figure 7.

VIDEOHOLICA 2014 will be again composed of the sections: video art, short films and animation.

The 7th VIDEOHOLICA has a submission fee of EUR 15.

For the publication of issue #65 the digital journal InterArtive will publish a special issue dedicated to diverse aspects of the current discussion about Culture and Urban Space. InterArtive invites theorists, critics, curators and artists who work on the subject to participate.

Which dynamics emerge within the urban space? How do they affect cultural production? What is the relation between political movements (online and on the streets) and artistic expression? What is the role of globalization within a political and artistic context? How are the existing hierarchies challenged by crisis and protest?

This call seeks to reflect on the political and cultural transformations that take place within the city, to highlight the links between the urban space and artistic production and to think about the concept of art and the city, within a global context.

Texts should be around 800 to 3000 words: see the Format Guidelines (pdf)

The works and art projects will be published in the form of Online Exhibition (images and short text): Format Guidelines (pdf)

Proposals should be submitted up until May 31, 2014

The 65th issue of Interartive will be published at the end of July 2014.

See website for more details of the subject scope on Culture and Urban Space

InterArtive is an open platform for dialogue that attempts to bring together different theoretical and practical fields of criticism and reflection on contemporary art and thought. Developed from an academic context in Barcelona, but emerging from a need to reach beyond it and to establish links with the artistic production, InterArtive functions as an online monthly journal and as a cultural association that carries out projects off-line.

logo-residence-photoquai_01The musée du quai Branly in Paris announces an open call for Les Résidences de Photoquai, an artistic creation subsidy programme for photographers and visual artists, open to non-European contemporary artists (with a main focus on photography).  “Les Résidences de Photoquai” (Photoquai Residencies’) programme connects to the Photoquai photo biennial.

This call for applications concerns exclusively non-European artists, and non-North American artists, using the photographic image. The creation subsidy, in the amount of € 15,000, should allow the selected artist to successfully complete a specific project in line with his current research and production. This amount integrates both the artistic fees (author’s rights) and the general expenses due to the residency costs in the countries of the artist’s choice.

Deadline for applications: 31 May 2014

kiatsirikajorn

Focused on non-European contemporary creation, in particular in the plastic arts and photography from these four continents – Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas – the musée du quai Branly has implemented since 2008 an artistic creation subsidy program. Every year, this program gives one or several non-European contemporary artists the chance to submit a creative project related to the mission of the musée du quai Branly, “where cultures meet in dialogue”, and coherent with a personal aesthetic path.

The photographic works created so far all contribute to a testimony of a different outlook on the world. For the artists, it is an out-of-place residency that can take them closer or further: some stayed in their own countries, others came to Paris or travelled to wherever it was they had chosen to execute their project. For the audience, it is yet another occasion to discover a personal artistic work, whilst receiving news about contemporary creation in the countries where the collections of the musée du quai Branly originated.

The project developed should be within the continuity of a personal artistic career. The “residency” does NOT consist of a long-term stay in Paris, unless the artistic project is anchored in France. The program’s aim is to show “elsewhere seen from elsewhere”. “Elsewhere” can consist of a theme, a country, a people, an artifact, or part of the musée du quai Branly’s collections.

The Residency’s primary interest should be photographic, beyond any documentary or ethnographic aspects.

Women-Prize15oct-enA call for nominations is open for the Women’s Creativity in Rural Life Prize. It is awarded by the Women’s World Summit Foundation to women and women’s groups around the world exhibiting exceptional creativity, courage and commitment for the improvement of the quality of life in rural communities

Awarded since 1994 by WWSF Women’s World Summit Foundation – an international, non-profit, humanitarian NGO based in Geneva, serving the implementation of women’s and children’s rights and the UN development agenda – the Prize honours women and women’s groups around the world exhibiting exceptional creativity, courage and commitment for the improvement of the quality of life in rural communities (395 prizes awarded so far).

The Prize aims to draw international attention to laureates’ contributions to sustainable development, household food security and peace, thus generating recognition and support for their projects. While rural women are vital in providing examples of sound practice in their communities, they still do not have full access to tools needed for development, such as education, credit, land rights and participation in decision making. By highlighting and awarding creative development models, innovations and experiences enhancing the quality of rural life, WWSF participates in addressing the eradication of rural poverty, gender mainstreaming and women’s empowerment.

Eligibility

  • Nominees should be women and women’s groups currently active in rural life whose efforts have not yet been acknowledged by other awards. They may not nominate themselves.
  • The nominating organization or individual must have direct experience of the nominee’s work. The nominator may not nominate a family member, be a member of the nominated organization, nor can an organization nominate its senior officer (i.e. founder, president etc.). No more than 3 nominees may be presented by the same person/organization in the same year. The nominator commits to organize an award ceremony if the candidate is selected for the Prize and invite the media.

Nominations must be received by 30 April 2014

See website for details of how to submit nominations.

CologneOFF X – 10th Cologne International Videoart Festival – theme of “Total Art. The 10th and final festival makes an international call for entries of short single channel videos by film and videomakers. They are looking for innovative and experimental approaches in dealing with contents and technology.

Deadline for entries: 30 April 2014

Founded in 2006, Cologne International Videoart Festival is celebrating in 2014 its 10th festival edition. For 10 years, CologneOFF supported “art & moving images” and and encouraged artists to use this exciting medium creatively. For Cologne International Videoart Festival, CologneOFF X is representing the final festival edition. Afterwards Cologne International Videoart Festival will continue as an exhibition format of artvideoKOELN international in the framework of its global activities of “art & moving images”.

TOTAL ART
CologneOFF X is standing under the theme of “Total Art”, showing video as a multi-facetted artistic audio-visual medium, which is executed solely by its creator, including filming, cutting, editing, composing, post-priducing etc, thus the whole creation in one single hand.

The digitalization of video made it only possible, that artists can create such a “total art” work, due to the affordability of the entire production. It is not even necessary to have the most advanced professional equipment. A creative person can use even cheap production tools for creating excellent art works.

But, “Total Art” is not only related to the creative production of a video, but also to the artistic contents, encouraging submitting artists to use all their creativity to go steps forward in exploring the artistic potential of video.

Wanted: single channel videos by film and videomakers from all countries on the globe
- “Theme”: “TOTAL ART” .The festival is looking for innovative and experimental approaches in dealing with contents and technology
- The full-length films/videos may originate from the years 2005-2014. Excerpts of videos or films are not accepted!!
- Duration: 60 seconds up to max 10 minutes (exceptions possible on request)
- Max 3 films/videos can be submitted.
- Creations using language and/or text other than English need English subtitles.

The Van Eyck invites visual artists with a strong interest in archaeology as a method for their own artistic practice to apply for a fellowship for a period of 6 months in the framework of “NEARCH - New scenarios for a community-involved archaeology”. The Van Eyck is a post-academic institute in Maastricht, Netherlands.

The Van Eyck invites visual artists with a strong interest in archaeology as a method for their own artistic practice to apply for a fellowship for a period of 6 months in the framework of ‘NEARCH – New scenarios for a community-involved archaeology’.

DEADLINE: 1st May 2014

nearchThe Van Eyck is a partner of NEARCH, a prestigious European project-based network of archaeological institutes and university departments. NEARCH is funded by the EU through 2018. We are convinced that with all differences visual artists and archaeologists share many similar attitudes, modes of thought and outlooks – amongst them the importance of looking, researching, finding, creating, interpreting, presenting.

THE MATERIALITY OF THE INVISIBLE is one of the themes the partners of NEARCH aim to explore. This theme offers a hitherto unknown opportunity to research in practice the interaction between artists and archaeologists, to work together in close confines, to profoundly exchange information and to thoroughly questioning both professions in an age of change and fluctuating cultural attitudes.

The starting point for this fellowship is the idea that all that is visible expresses what is invisible – be it a photograph, a house, a fragment, a day in my life, an artwork, a car in the street. And, similarly, all that is material stresses its immateriality – be it a ruin, a beam of light, a polished surface, a movie, a church. This is the tension of THE MATERIALITY OF THE INVISIBLE and of the working processes of artists and archaeologists.

What we are offering:

• 4 positions at the Van Eyck for a period of 6 months with the possibility of an extension depending on your project. The starting date will be fixed in mutual agreement

• A monthly stipend, a studio and a working budget

• A travel budget to visit excavations and to collaborate closely with one of NEARCH’s partners

• The support of Jan van Eyck’s advisors, the use of its Labs and its multidisciplinary community

• Participation in the general meetings with NEARCH’s partners

• Presentation of your work at the 2017 exhibition

Please note: there is a mandatory application fee.

The NEARCH programme brings together the following research organizations, universities and European cultural institutions :

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece ) Heritage Institute of Science – National Research Council (Spain ), Institute of artistic, cultural and natural heritage of the Emilia -Romagna region (Italy); Culture Lab (Belgium ) Faculty Archaeology at the University of Leiden (Netherlands ) Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (Poland ), Archaeology Data Service , University of York ( UK ) German Archaeological Institute (Germany ), Jan van Eyck Academie (Netherlands ) CENTQUATRE – Paris ( France ), University of Oxford ( UK ), University of Gothenburg (Sweden). – Associated Partners : Archaeology Unit of the city of Saint- Denis , EAA – European Association of Archaeologists , ICAHM – International Scientific Committee on Archaeological Heritage Management.
