STATE ABED, international conference & exhibition, call 4 ART and RESEARCH works


Deadline:
Sun Nov 24, 2013 23:59

Location:
Split, Croatia

Following a feminist maxim THE PERSONAL IS POLITICAL, as well as relying upon our reasons why we deal with feminisms, what makes us publicly declare ourselves feminists, we have come up with the exhibition title STATE ABED. We would like to know how deep and in what ways the system, the state, the authorities and politics govern our life as well as to what extent and for what reasons they have the urge to enter and control our lives, bedrooms, bodies and minds. We would especially like to reveal the ways we accept or do not accept their seductions, kisses, orders and violences. We would like to strip off the system the way the system strips us off. We would like to hit the system back, or kiss it back. We ask for your ideas, concepts, works, your ways and your stories which will help us unravel this story and find out why we have the feeling that this lovemaking is actually an act of rape and what consequences it has on the personal. Which is political. Which is personal.

Looking for contemporary RESEARCH and ARTworks by female and male artists of all ages, in all media, with the theme STATE ABED for an international exhibition to take place in the Art Gallery Split, from January 24th to February 14th, 2014.

'...We are the revolt of the spirit; we believe that revolution is the inevitable vengeance of a spirit humiliated with your doings. We are not utopians; we can conceive this revolution only as a social form. If anywhere there are men and women who have seen a coalition form against them (traitors to everything that is not freedom, rebels of every sort, prisoners of common law), let them never forget that the idea of revolution is the best and most effective safeguard of the individual.'

La Révolution surréaliste, NO.5, Paris 1925.



New Media Gallery in collaboration with the SC gallery and gallery Vladimir Nazor Zagreb invites you to apply your new media art works for the international new media exhibition with the theme 'Revolution Now and Forever'.

Nearly a century after the surrealist revolution, a century of the greatest destruction toward the human body, the body of citizen, worker, warrior, remains only the question: Is the world finally ready?

Humanism is gone in traces of advertising campaigns. The system of representation is collapsed. What is left are the governments that do not rule, workers who do not work, students who do not study, politicians who represent nobody but themselves, children who do not eat every day. REVOLUTION is not dead, it was just molested. Its body massacred with capital and converted into debt paying endless loans and trying to get aware of rejecting any form of ideology which could be attributed to it. Can new revolution generate a new subject, new cogito space shuttle, sharp awareness of the future? Is there a future of the world?

We are looking for the witnesses of the revolution, witnesses od student protest, occupy movements, protests against ACTA, workers' protests, general strikes, witnesses of corrupted prime ministers, hypocritical banks... We are looking for the Re-evoluated individuals and for the bodies of revolution. Assuming that to be an artist means that the person is REvoluatued, in the sense of individual protection which was highlighted by the Surrealists in their manifesto, the exhibition 'Revolution Now & Forever' wants to show different degrees of RE-evolution through multiple contexts in which they are located and through various subversive practices in works of art to show the long love relationship of art and revolution.

Participate in the creation of the Revolution now and forever! Apply your work, idea, action, reaction via the online application form:http://www.mavena.hr/index.php?option=com_aicontactsafe&view=message&layout=message&pf=1&Itemid=15&lang=en

Deadline for entries: 20 April 2012.

Re: REFERENDUM
★★★22/01/2012 CROATIA ★★★

★★ We all live in the TINA (There Is No Alternative) political time. Lie that was often repeated by Margaret Thatcher in the 80-ties about the neo liberalism is now transformed into a brutal EU faction. In TINA political time there is actually no time for understanding the process, it is automated and implemented largely outside society hidden in endless paragraphs. The only remnant that remains when TINA is divided with civil rights is actually the freedom of citizens whether to decide, to vote; to go out well-dressed on a referendum / festival of democracy and to elect. Since we all are in TINA political time, the question whether the Croatian citizens will also give legitimacy to the EU, is superfluous, because the answer already exists in an automated process of the infinite paragraphs.

★★Exhibition Re: REFERENDUM questions how TIA (There Is Alternative) works, what are its mechanisms, mental triggers, asks how is it possible. Exhibition Re: REFERENDUM is a ride on the line TINA-TIA in which we question the fragile border crossing, the overcoming of automaticity, of subversion as a message between the lines as well as subversion as direct action, reaction, and act. ★
