Cyprus | “Decrypting the Artist” call for submissions

Cultural organisation NeMe and the Institute of Network Cultures are calling for speakers and artists for their exhibition and conference “MoneyLab#13”, between November and December 2023 in Cyprus. 

MoneyLab#13 aims to interrogate the state of recent and emerging technologies, and how they relate to hegemonic economies. To this end, NeMe and the Institute of Network Cultures are seeking submissions for:

  • artworks to be exhibited in the NeMe Arts Centre between 3 November – 1 December 2023
  • speakers for a two-day conference which will take place on 3 and 4 November 2023

Texts for a possible MoneyLab publication will be gathered, to be published by the Institute of Network Cultures in 2024.

A total of 6 speakers and 10 artists will be selected. 

Submissions can address at least one of the themes of MoneyLab#13

  • Blockchain, DAOs, NFTs and other crypto-related topics
  • Dematerialisation of money, cashless society, CBDC/digital EUR
  • Revenue models for the arts

As the organisers are interested in new ideas, the submissions could be for a completed work or a work in progress. Artists, designers, coders, journalists, researchers, writers, and critics can apply for the exhibition, the conference, and the publication, to be produced in 2024.

What is provided?

  • Up to 500 EUR for flights, accommodation for up to 4 days and a per diem of 40 EUR for speakers
  • The selected artists will each receive an honorarium of 200 EUR
