mobilelibrarymyanmarlogoAsia Art Archive (AAA) and Myanmar Art Resource Center and Archive (MARCA) announce Mobile Library: Myanmar, a temporary collaborative platform for ideas exchange that will run from November 2014 to March 2015 in Yangon and Mandalay.

Mobile Library is a periodic initiative organised in partnership with cultural collaborators in different countries throughout Asia to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas. By co-organising events and enabling the circulation of printed matter, this programme activates new possibilities to engage with art as a form of knowledge.

Over 450 publications—from periodicals, artist monographs, and exhibition catalogues, to books on theory, philosophy, independent art spaces, curating, and archives—have been gifted to the emerging non-profit Myanmar Art Resource Center and Archive.

MARCA, having translated synopses for many of the books into Burmese, will circulate the entire book collection to Goethe-Institut, Myanmar Deitta, National University of Arts and Culture, New Zero Art Space, Pansodan Scene, and TS1 Gallery in Yangon before moving on to various locations in Mandalay.

Prior editions of the AAA Mobile Library have included Mobile Library: Vietnam with Sàn Art in Ho Chi Minh City (2011) and Mobile Library: Sri Lanka with Raking Leaves in Jaffna and Colombo (2013).

Mobile Library: Myanmar | Programme Highlights

Educational workshop (26–27 November, 2014) led by Jaffna-based artist and educator Thamotharampillai Shanaathanan at Yangon’s National University of Arts and Culture.

mobilelibrarymyanmar2

Panel discussion on archives (28 November, 2014) with Clark House Initiative’s Zasha Colah and Sumesh Sharma; AAA Head of Research & Programmes Hammad Nasar; and Mobile Library: Sri Lanka participant Thamotharampillai Shanaathanan.

Digital archiving workshop (29 November, 2014) that will introduce and share standards, tools, and methodological approaches for digital archiving through case studies.

Open Call for materials on contemporary art in Myanmar to facilitate AAA’s ongoing development of a dynamic, publicly accessible collection and resource sharing platform on recent art of Asia.

Free Parking is a new programme series that will run concurrently to Mobile Library: Myanmar. Located in the AAA library in Hong Kong, and featuring ‘art libraries from elsewhere’ in conversation with the AAA collection, the inaugural presentation will focus on books and related ephemera from past and present editions of the Mobile Library.

Myanmar Art Resource Center and Archive (MARCA) aims to become the largest bilingual digital resource on the history and current state of Myanmar arts; to stimulate and nourish creative teaching and learning as well as provide research materials for students, teachers, artists, and the greater public. The center and archive will provide an environment for creative and analytical thinking in the country’s time of transition, where the end of censored education and closed markets means the beginning of creative thinking and inter-regional and global exchange. MARCA was founded by artists Khin Zaw Latt and Zon Sapal Phyu along with researcher Nathalie Johnston.

Mobile Library: Myanmar is generously supported by Foundation for Arts Initiatives (FfAI) and Mr. & Mrs. Serge Pun.

Open call to artists and creators for a winter 2015 residency at Sapporo Tenjinyama Art Studio. Focusing on three key words; winter, snow and Sapporo, each artist is expected to deepen their ideas through production. Three artists will be selected for a 4-week residency starting end January 2015.

Sapporo Tenjinyama Art Studio, which opened in summer 2014 in the city of Sapporo contains artist-in-residence facilities. In this quiet, natural environment in the Tenjinyama green zone are 13 studio apartments, exhibition areas, and a studio where citizens can interact with each other (charged for the use). A free rest station in Tenjinyama Park is also one of the features. The atrium lounge on the first floor is a common area where anyone can drop in freely, and artists participating in the program and citizens can communicate with each other on a daily basis through various events, presentations by artists and their open-to-the-public productions.

Period for staying at studio:Within 4 weeks in total from January 27 (Tue.) to February 28 (Sat.), 2015

* Artists are requested to be at the studio during the project period from February 1 (Sun.) to 22 (Sun.)

Number of participating artists:3

Contents:Production plan concerning the project and presentation of the artwork in line with the theme, and proposal for workshop programs.

Conditions and qualifications:

・Irrespective of nationality, place of residence, age (18 and up), sex and genre

・Applicants must have a history of activities in areas related to his/her artist-in-residence program (diverse areas including fine arts, music, craft, theater, dance, literary arts, photography, film and design).

・Artists/creators selected must understand the objective of the residence program and report their results. (The form of how to report their results is decided by mutual agreement.)

・Artists/creators are expected to participate in citizens’ exchange programs to be held at the Art Studio.

See guidelines for full details of what is offered – main elements:

  • The studio rent and heating expenses are free.
  • The amount of ¥150,000 is provided uniformly to each artist (artistic group) to help them with expenses of activities, transportation to Sapporo, production cost.

About the open call to the residence program 2014:

The city of Sapporo with residents as many as 2 million living in such a cold, snowy district is a rare large city in the world. As it snows heavily in the winter of Sapporo, residents are forced to live in an environment totally different from the circumstances in summer. Fighting against difficulties such as snow removal and damage, they have built up some ways to coexist with snow. In attempts to coexist with snow, ranging from road-heating and underground passages in infrastructure and transportation to residents’ daily activities, behaviors and winter entertainments including sports and snow festivals, all sorts of creative activities to vitalize the city are implemented.

sapporo-residency1

After the opening, Tenjinyama Art Studio, where direct communication between visiting citizens and participating artists has been promoted naturally, will see its first winter. The scenery with rich greenery at Tenjinyama will change completely. Perhaps, there may appear an ideal place for creativity only found in winter. Making the most of that environment, the regional vitalization project will be conducted through art, viewing positively the lifestyle and city life in winter.

wintter

Focusing on three key words; winter, snow and Sapporo, each artist is expected to deepen their ideas through production. Through creating the work environment in winter and workshops and presentations by artists, the project will lead to the experimental introduction of creative experience in winter in the community. We look forward to receiving applications from many artists and creators.

Deadline: 14 December 2014

ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival is an international contemporary arts festival presenting site-specific works made for public space in Kuopio, Finland. Call for proposals for September 2015 festival, connecting with body, sports, race event themes.

ANTI Festival presents live, sonic, visual and text-based art from today’s most exciting and innovative artists in the Finnish town of Kuopio. In September 2015 ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival will collaborate with the Kuopio Marathon to present a unique series of cultural events created in response to the race. We invite proposals for projects that engage with one or more of the following areas:

Duration, longevity and time; the long and short of time-based activities
Sport and culture, sporting culture, cultural sport
The body and endurance – expanded ideas of endurance: political, social, cultural forms of endured activity; the social agency of endurance
The quantified self: fitness culture, technology and performance
The race, racing and competitive frameworks
Participation and mass events – the individual and the many
The enthusiast and the amateur: the cultural agency of the ‘trained’ every-person
Topographic trajectories and spatial intervention: running/reading/using the city

ANTI is a site-specific festival – we do not show projects in traditional cultural spaces, thus projects have a direct relationship with the spaces and places they are shown in. When proposing a project please make it clear where your project would ideally be located, and why. The 2015 festival will take place in and round the Kuopio Marathon – projects are imagined to establish a number of relationships with the race itself; some may engage directly with the event while others might happen in parallel to it etc.

Before making your proposal it may be beneficial to spend some time with the online archive of previous festival editions: www.antifestival.com

The proposal process

All proposals must be sent using this electronic form and written in English. The form allows a link to be made to online documentation of previous work and for applicants to attach a CV and max three supporting images. Proposals that do not strictly conform to these guidelines will not be considered.

The proposal deadline is 16.12.2014

December Dance takes place in Brugge|Bruges, Belgium 4-14 December 2014 on the theme Connecting Asia, exploring contemporary Asian dance scene from Japan, Thailand, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore and Korea (14 productions – 10 Belgian premieres). A Round Table Discussion on the Flanders-Asia Connection is organised on 5 December.

December Dance is a collaboration between Concertgebouw Brugge and Cultuurcentrum Brugge. December Dance 14 focuses on the (contemporary) Asian dance scene. Under the title Connecting Asia, we bridge the gap between East and West, contemporary and traditional; slowness and speed, music and silence, spirituality and exuberance … and in so doing, we generate confrontation and dialogue.

DECEMBER DANCE – programme in brief:

The dancers and drummers of Taiwan’s U-Theatre, Japanese Butoh choreographer Ushio Amagatsu and Pichet Klunchun, the great master of Khon, the Thai masked dance form, all rework their country’s dance traditions in an amazingly contemporary way. But we also have Western and Asian choreographers and dancers who have entered into cross-border collaborations. Audience favourite Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui creates a poetic choreography for young Chinese dancer Yabin Wang, Belgian.

arcorenzvietnamnatoperaballet

German Arco Renz explores the tensions between youth and age, together with senior dancers from the Vietnam National Opera Ballet, and Dutch choreographer duo Leine and Roebana adapt their dance vocabulary to include gamelan music and traditional Indonesian dance. Korean Hyoseung Ye and Taiwanese Shang-Chi Sun, on the other hand, present choreographies that might be seen as purely Western contemporary dance.

The Flanders-Asia Connection: December Dance Round Table Discussion

During this edition of December Dance, Concertgebouw Brugge and VTi will organise a round table discussion for all interested in exchange and partnership with Asia. The goal of the session is not only to share experiences and information, but also to discuss possible actions and initiatives. Artists and companies with experience and/or projects in Asia will be present, as will a number of Asian artists and producers. Tang Fu Kuen and Els Silvrants among others will share their experiences. Tang Fu Kuen is an independent producer, curator and dramaturge for theatre and also visual arts based in Bangkok. Els Silvrants worked for several arts organisations and festivals in Beijing. In 2005, she founded Theatre in Motion, that is now called the Institute for Provocation.

Date: Friday 5 December 2014 from 15:00 – 18:00

Venue: Concertgebouw Brugge, ‘t Zand 34, 8000 Bruges

The Round Table is free – register now

LEAP+ has been launched by Asia Pacific Writers & Translators, a new quarterly online magazine featuring contributions from writers around Asia and beyond. LEAP+ will provide pragmatic advice on creative writing, editing, literary translation, finding publishers, opportunities to present new work, and places to find writer peers and mentors.

It also seeks to provide current lists of events and opportunities for writers and translators in the Asia Pacific region.

We welcome ideas and articles from established writers, editors and others willing to share their expertise and experience.

LEAP+ is not a literary magazine. We don’t want to duplicate existing resources, and there are now plenty of good online literary magazines produced in Asia, which we support. We hope that, in time, readers of LEAP+ will be lead to those publications. If you know of a magazine that you think should be featured here, contact the editor.

Through LEAP+, Asia Pacific Writers & Translators seeks to fill an information vacuum. Resources such as this have been available for emerging writers in the United States, Britain, Australia, Canada and elsewhere for many years. But other existing resources generally fail to include information about events and debates that are relevant, specific and accessible to writers in Asia.

ICE HOT – NORDIC DANCE PLATFORM is a collaboration project between all five Nordic countries in Oslo 9-14 December. The Nordic dance showcase includes collaborative productions between Norwegian choreographer Heine Avdal and Japanese choreographer Yukiko Shinozaki and a Swedish-Japanese dance installation created by artist Hiroaki Umeda for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.

GöteborgOperaen3foto-Thomas-Aurin-934x696

The intense dance installation Interfacial Scale of Tokyo-based artist Hiroaki Umeda explores how you can break down the choreographic border of dance – and the interface between dance and the unknown on the other side of the border. Inspired by tacit knowledge and swarm behavior, he choreographs for both each dancer individually and a collective.
As well as being a choreographer and dancer, Umeda is also a photographer and video artist. In 2000, he established his own company, S20. Interfacial Scale is created exclusively for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.

Performance: 11 December, 21.30

WITH As if nothing has been spinning around for something to remember, the Norwegian choreographer Heine Avdal and the Japanese choreographer Yukiko Shinozaki are creating a new production for larger stages.

Performance: 10 December, 19h

TheSeventhFloorofthe-World-New-934x696

The PACKAGING CHALLENGE runs over a year (March 2015-March 2016)  and aims to find innovative ways to reduce waste and increase recycling along the transport routes of the fashion retailer H&M Germany.

Over ten weeks, you will create a prototype for a new packaging system and process that will be tested in deliveries between H&M’s distribution center for Germany and individual stores. This process is supported by our Challenge Lab, a course which offers knowledge, skills and tools necessary to successfully solve the Challenge. Furthermore, you will gain an in-depth look into a multi-national company.

You will have the chance to interact with leading experts in the fields of packaging, reverse logistics, and sustainability, as well as meet H&M experts from those fields. You will conduct research to identify and understand the status quo of H&M, and its vision of sustainability in the context of available best-practices regarding transport and logistics. Based on these learning experiences, you will brainstorm, identify, and test ideas for a packaging prototype. The focus will lie on finding a feasible solution that is innovative, scalable, economical and more sustainable.

The impact of your solution will be measured during a one-week testing phase at the end of the ten-week Incubation Phase in Hamburg, delivering goods from the central German warehouse to H&M stores in Hamburg. Although the testing will take place in Germany, the solution should be one that can be scaled to suppliers worldwide for maximum impact.

Solving the Challenge as a group is only one part of the start-up program. During the ten weeks on campus you will also work intensively on turning your own venture idea into a viable social venture plan that is ready for implementation during the following ten-month Implementation Phase.

Deadline for applications: 27 November 2014
