The Curious Loop Educational Residency (Perleberg, Germany) – Call For Artists

The Curious Loop Educational Residency (Perleberg, Germany) – Call For Artists

The Field Kitchen Academy announces a call for artists for The Curious Loop, their interdisciplinary, educational residency programme that gathers artists/ creative minds, a resident chef, and prominent experts from different fields together around a kitchen table through mind-opening acts and actions. On its second edition, a total of 11 interdisciplinary residents will be selected to join the upcoming Field Kitchen Academy in its three modules. Curated by Ece Pazarbaşı, this year, under the title of The Curious Loop, the Field Kitchen Academy will use the notion of loops-in-sound as a gateway to other concepts of repetition, offering a variety of individual and collective experiences.

Deadline: 22 Jun 2020

Loops represent a time that is suspended, which is a compressed source of the past, present, and the future. The loop oscillates between the known and the unknown. As for the viewer and listener, it could unfold to a future of known (as it repeats the same material over and over again), but it may relate to an unknown (as surprises are always welcome). One never knows if the loop will be broken with an unknown sound or visual component – no matter how well defined and repeated the loop has developed in the past. If one cannot step into the same river twice and one opens to perception with all senses, what differences can we find in each loop?

Composed of three intertwined modules that allow for different durations in the residency, the program is open to application from all disciplines and all walks of life. The selected residents will have the opportunity of pursuing processes of experimentation, discussion, trial and error, the progression of knowledge, and know-how in working sessions during the first 3 weeks. The last half week will be the ‘simmering’ period where the residents are expected to do nothing but only listening.

The outcome of the Field Kitchen Academy’s three working sessions will be presented as part of The Curious Loop Public Program. The Public Program is partially supported by Musikfonds and Die Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien.

Location: Gutshaus Wusten-Buchholz, Perleberg, Germany. Approximately 2 hours away from Berlin. Selected participants will be announced by 6 July 2020.

Educational Residency Leaders

  • Bill Fontana (composer and video artist)
  • Hans Peter Kuhn (sound and visual artist)
  • Sebastian Mullaert A.k.a Minilogue (producer and DJ)
  • Ove Holmqvist (sound artist)
  • Hans Rosenström (sound artist)
  • Steffi Weismann (sound artist)
  • Ji Woo and Sun Woo (Zen Masters)
  • Prof. Dr. Ursula Koch (Neurophysiologist)

Chef in Residence: Emrah Tas

Selection committee: Peter Cusack, Ali M. Demirel, Juliana Hodkinson, Mario Asef, and Ece Pazarbaşı.

The Curious Loop Artist Benefits

The three intertwined modules allow for different durations in the residency. The participation fee covers shared room for two people for the entire period, 3 plant based meals (breakfast, lunch, dinners, and tea time snacks), and the program fee for the entire working sessions and participation in the public program. With an inter-disciplinary approach, the Field Kitchen Academy invites six experts of academics and field practitioners to meet 10 carefully selected artists/ creative minds and a resident cook in a concentrated environment with health regulations.

Reclaim Award 2020 (Cologne, Germany) – Call For Artists

Reclaim Award 2020 (Cologne, Germany) – Call For Artists

The Reclaim Kollektiv announces a call for artists for the Reclaim Award 2020. Ads out, art in! Reclaim your place in public space. Billboards become cultural conceptual surfaces, artistic canvases, or photographic landscapes. The city a public museum. Reclaim replaces advertising on large surfaces with your art. With the award, make a contribution towards culturally enhancing the public space. Make Cologne’s urban profile more attractive. Display billboards that stimulate, illustrate diversity and difference, and open up conceptual spaces. Easily perceivable, public, and for everyone!

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 26 Apr 2020

Entry fee: 1 entry: 25€ / 2 entries: 40€ / 3 entries: 50€.

Where usually cruises, cars, or detergents find large places to shine, there will now be art. 40 billboards become exhibition surfaces.

This year, the Reclaim Kollektiv holds the second Reclaim Award in Cologne. For the debut in 2019, 551 artists from 29 countries applied to redesign 25 billboards in urban areas of Cologne. Since this went beyond any intended scope, there will be already 40 large-scale billboards to show art in 2020.

Reclaim grows. A plus of 15 surfaces means even more radiance for the artpieces, even more visibility for the artists. The stage is ready, Cologne as public museum. Perception in public space is the highest: large-scale billboards on bustling streets, busy train stations, and in urban, alternative neighbourhoods of Cologne.

The winners will exhibit their works in the form of 18/1 posters on billboards rented in a central location, for the duration of 10 days. Artists from all fields and all countries are welcome to participate in the competition.

About Reclaim Kollektiv

The Reclaim Kollektiv consists of three business partners and friends. Odo Hans is a freelance artist and initiator of the Reclaim Award. Together with Tobias Handorf and Caspar Wündrich, managers of the design studio neoactio in Cologne, they founded the Kollektiv in 2019.

Last years’ debut was a great success for the trio. 551 applicants liked the idea and shared the vision. This years’ Reclaim Award grew by 15 surfaces.
