We are searching for a visual or interdisciplinary artist from Wroclaw and Lower Silesia, who would like to deal with the theme of Interconnectedness which highlights the need for contemporary society to be aware of its links with the environment beyond its own region, state or nation, but also beyond the human species. On the one hand, it is the impact of rich regions on developing countries on environmental, economic and political issues. On the other hand, focusing on anthropocentric humanism leads to the creation of a line between human and animal.
The artistic project that we will select through the open call should reflect some of the related issues through the visual art or its overlap into scientific disciplines, sound art, new media or performance.
Submission deadline: 20/09/2020
Results until: 28/09/2020
Residency period: 2/11–20/12/2020
The open call is addressed to visual and interdisciplinary artists living, born, studying or creating in Wroclaw or Lower Silesia.
