starts

This is an open call for entries in conjunction with an initiative launched by the European Commission: STARTS. The name stands for innovation at the nexus of Science, Technology and the ARTS.

Two prizes – €20,000 each – will be bestowed this year: One for artistic exploration and projects in which the artistic approach has significant potential to influence or change the way technology is deployed, developed or perceived, andOne for innovative cooperative ventures teaming up industry/technology and art (and cultural & creative sectors in general) in ways that open up new paths for innovation.

This competition specifically seeks: Trailblazing forms of collaboration and projects essentially characterized by both technology and art; strictly artistically or strictly technologically oriented projects are not what STARTS is looking for. Any and all artistic works and practices having to do with innovation in the areas of technology, business and/or society. This competition is not limited to a particular genre such as media art and digital art. All forms of technological and scientific research that are inspired by art or in which artists are integrated as catalysts of new ways of seeing things. This includes but is not limited to information & communications technology.Artists or artists’ collectives, creative professionals, researchers and companies throughout the world. This competition is not limited to citizens of EU-member states.

More detailed information: starts-prize.aec.at

ELIGIBILITY

Platform seeks proposals from artists and curators from all backgrounds, working in any media or discipline. Prior experience is not a condition of acceptance.

THE GALLERY
Our newly renovated Gallery is aimed to support a more diverse and extensive experience to exhibitors and visitors alike. What was originally our main gallery, a large single space, has been modified to bring together a resource/reception space, Gallery 1 and Gallery 2 all on one floor.

Gallery 1 at roughly 209m2, has a very adaptable framework. Our Gallery 2 provides opportunities for smaller interventions, exhibitions and installations. These spaces can be naturally lit or fully enclosed to the white cube aesthetic and contains an overhead system of movable halogen lights and power sockets located at ceiling height.

FUNDING

Platform has limited financial resources and is unable to provide financial support to artists to realise an exhibition this includes costs of creating artwork, funding travel / transportation, installation, insurance on individual works etc.
Applicants should have a good idea of how they intend to fund their show. Platform can provide a letter of support and advice in applying for funding both in Northern Ireland and internationally. Artists must arrange their own technical support and should make allowances for costs associated with this in their exhibition budget.

SCHEDULING
Platform schedules shows throughout the year and will do its best to accommodate requested dates for exhibitions. This may not always be possible due to time or program restrictions. On average, a show runs for three weeks, with three days for installation and deinstallation. Wherever possible, Platform schedules the shows’ opening nights for the first Thursday of the month. This is to coincide with Belfast’s Late Night Art, which increases footfall for the opening night.

STORAGE
Due to limited space, Platform is unable to store works of art. All work must be removed from the premises during deinstallation.

OPEN CALL paraflows .XI EXHIBITION


English Version below

paraflows .XI – IDENTITY

Wer sind wir? Welche Merkmale machen uns aus? Es gibt diverse biologische – daher vererbte -physische Ausprägungen, die Identität ausmachen. Geschlecht, Haarfarbe, Augenfarbe, Körpergröße, Fingerabdrücke, … Eigenschaften, an denen man selbst nur schwer etwas ändern kann. Die gesellschaftlichen, medialen und konstruierten Formen von Identität sind hingegen sehr wohl beeinflussbar. Wieviel(e) Identität(en) braucht man, und wozu? Woher kommt der Wunsch nach Selbsterfindung, nach einem oder mehreren Alter Egos, nach Kontrolle über die Außenwahrnehmung? Was unterscheidet die Kunstfigur vom Avatar? Ist es der Wunsch des Menschen, Schöpfer und Geschöpf gleichermaßen zu sein?

Aber nicht nur die Konstruktionsmöglichkeiten von Identität entwickeln sich rasant, auch die Überprüfung und Verifizierung derselben wird immer ausgefeilter. Nicht nur auf Reisen wird die Identität abgefragt sondern bei jedem Einkauf, beim Betreten öffentlicher Plätze, beim Arzt, im Restaurant,  in den Social Media … wie gehen wir um mit den Datenströmen, die wir erzeugen? Wie verhalten wir uns, wie schützen wir uns? Wie wird man gemappt?

Wie wirken sich migrantische Szenarien auf die Konstruktion von Identität aus? Wie steht es um Künstlernamen, Kunstfiguren?

Mit paraflows .XI wollen wir nach den Bausteinen von Identität suchen, Variablen finden und diese unterschiedlich zusammensetzen.

DEADLINE: 31. 03. 2016

Wir suchen kuenstlerische Positionen, die sich mit dem im Konzept angesprochen Thema auseinandersetzen. Bitte um Einreichung im pdf Format per Email an:office(at)paraflows.at

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

paraflows .XI – IDENTITY

Who are we? What are the traits that define us? There are several biological – and therefore hereditary – physical features that represent an identity. Sex, hair and eye color, body height, fingerprints, … characteristics which are hard to change by ourselves. The medial, social, and constructed forms of identity on the other hand are fairly easy to manipulate.  How much identity or how many identities do we need, and what do we need them for? Where does the desire to reinvent ourselves, to have one or several alter egos, to control the way we are perceived from outside come from?  What is the difference between a persona and an avatar? Is it a desire of all humans to be creator and creature at the same time?

But not just the possible ways to create an identity are rapidly evolving; the methods to examine and verify these identities are also becoming more refined. Our identity is not just checked when we travel but every time we go shopping, when we enter public spaces, at the doctor’s, at restaurants, in social media, … how are we dealing with the data streams we produce? How do we behave, how do we protect ourselves? How are we being mapped?

What influence do migrant scenarios have on the construction of identities? What about pen names and fictional characters?

paraflows .XI will be looking into the components of identity and trying to find variables to put these components together in different ways.

DEADLINE:  31. 03. 2016

Pls send your application as pdf file via e-mail to: office(at)paraflows.at
