France | antiAtlas of borders | call for artists' proposals
The antiAtlas of borders is a transdisciplinary event that will take place in Southern France between September 30 2013 and March 1 2014. Call for artists proposals for exhibition (visual arts, net.art, photo, video games, documentaries, testimonies dealing with experiences of borders).
Bypassing cartography, at the crossroads of research and art, the antiAtlas offers a new approach to the mutations of borders and on the way they are experienced by people in the 21st century.
The antiAtlas is an outcome of the transdisciplinary research project led by IMéRA (Institut Méditerranéen de Recherches Avancées - Mediterranean Institute of Advanced Research) on the mutations of contemporary territorial configurations (2011 - 2013). It will be one of the steps of Ulysses, a major exhibition program in Marseille - Provence 2013 supported by the FRAC (Regional Fund for Contemporary Art).
The objective of the antiAtlas is to decompartmentalize the fields of knowledge, bringing together artists, human scientists, hard scientists and professionals.
The call for proposals is opened in order to select original productions for the exhibition that will take place at la Compagnie, from 13 December 2013 to 1st March 2014.
The curator and the artistic and scientific committee are looking for various proposals (artworks, net. Art, photo, video, testimonies, documentaries, video games ...) showing different ways to experience the borders. Proposals from migrants, professionals and artists are welcome, in order to contribute to prepare a resolutely participatory exhibition.
An international symposium will take place 30 September - 2 October
