OPEN CALL: THINKABOUTSPACE + IKONO Open Call for Berlin Painters

OPEN CALL: THINKABOUTSPACE  deadline April 20th

Calling all artists, architects, curators, or theoreticians–– do you have ideas regarding new forms of public monuments that you’d like to share? Here’s your chance.

As one element of the international group exhibition Open Monument at Kunstraum Kreuzberg / Bethanien, Germany, running from May 3 to Jun. 16, an online platform of your ideas will be open for submissions. This unique exhibition explores multimedia and transformative historic monuments through the platform THINKABOUTSPACE, alongside 10 international artists’ works in the gallery space–– from installation to documentation of architectural design. Even walking tours through Berlin will be conducted by various residents showing their special, hidden places–– their personal monuments.

The online platform THINKABOUTSPACE will include everything from image, text, sound, video, and architectural models referring to possible ideas for a new historic monument. The stipulations are almost none, the possibilities endless. Material gathered for THINKABOUTSPACE will be infused in the exhibition and projected alongside the works of Open Monument. The deadline for submissions is April 20 and contributions can be nominal or anonymous. Send material to zarzarii@yahoo.com with the subject line: “proposal for thinkaboutspace”

IKONO & ARTCONNECT BERLIN VIDEO SPOTLIGHT SERIES 2013 - #3 OPEN CALL FOR PAINTERS

IkonoTV http://ikono.org/ikonotv/

ikono invites Berlin based artists to take part in a year-long series of open calls held in collaboration with Artconnect Berlinto promote the visibility of the arts on a local and international scale.

Every other month in 2013, ikono and Artconnect Berlin will encourage submissions of artworks from local artists. Two artworks will be selected from each open call and presented on our local and international media platforms throughout the following months. Each call will focus on a specific artistic medium as a criterion for submission: sculpture, photography, painting, installation and drawing.

We are really happy with the results of our first two open calls, sculpture and photography! We are now ready to move on to the next one: until May 13th, we are searching for submissions of paintings from Berlin based artists. There is no specific theme.

The two artworks selected from each call will be showcased in two unique films produced by ikono. They will be broadcasted on its two internationally viewed HDTV channels, ikonoTV (Germany) and ikonoMENASA (Middle East, Northern Africa and Southern Asia). The videos will also be presented on Artconnect’s and ikono’s blogs, alongside with in-depth interviews with the featured artists conducted by Artconnect Berlin. At the end of 2013, ikono will produce a short retrospective film highlighting all selected works to conclude the series.

The entire collection of open call interviews and films will remain available as an archive on Artconnect Berlin’s and ikono’s websites for general public access.

How to submit:

  1. You will need an artist’s profile on Artconnect Berlin’s website, which is free and easy to create under www.artconnectberlin.com. Feel free to upload as many files as you want, as this is a great tool to connect with other artists in your area and share your art!
  2. For the #3 Open Call for Paintings, you should submit one artwork documented through still images. As a general rule, we ask you for up to five images (Max size per image: 1MB).

  3. You must include the following production information in your submission: applicant’s name, country of origin, contact, link to your website (if you have one), link to your Artconnect Berlin profile, a small bio, a short description of your work.
