ArtUP! Media Art Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey

ArtUp! is a new online platform about media art in Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey. The platform aims to establish an online structure that will inform on the diverse media art scenes in the three countries and also on the different topics of media art.

A digital collection of artworks and essays provide a general overview on different tendencies in media art. The consistent version of the website in five languages [Bulgarian, Greek, Turkish, German and English] encourages the international community to take part in this exploratory project. ArtUP! aims at providing resources to online audiences via a digital library on media art while creating new channels of communication.

The main objective of ArtUP! is to create collaborative networks between artists, writers, curators and cultural practitioners who are interested in the field of media art. Online visitors will be able to explore the art scenes of media art in Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey through a constantly evolving database of artists and essays on the subject.

ArtUp! offers artists the opportunity to present their work to an international audience, not only through visual summaries of their work, but also through virtual and physical exhibitions organized by local curators in all three countries.

ArtUP! seeks to create an active network of collaboration between media art practitioners and to reinforce cultural links between the three countries.

ArtUP! - Media Art in Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey
Open call for media art submissions
Exhibition PARABOLE

ArtUP! - Media Art in Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey, a project of the Goethe-Institut in those three countries, is releasing an open call for artists from Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey to take part in the new media art exhibition entitled PARABOLE that will be held in Bulgaria.

The project ArtUP!, in collaboration with artists from Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey, is creating virtual and cross-border local exhibitions with media-artistic connecting points on a diverse range of topics. The purpose of this is to put them into a regional context and then to present them online to a wider international audience.

Opening imaginary abstract fields, the exhibition PARABOLE attempts to catch the pulse of the region. It aims to provide new scenarios, visions and perspectives beyond any borders and crises, both financial and ethical, and transfers these topics into urban, rural and virtual spaces within the region.

The exhibition PARABOLE will be shown locally in Bulgaria in several venues with opening events in time sequences, between April and June 2013, that follow the shape of a parabole curve. The PARABOLE will also run on the virtual exhibition space ArtUP!.

Any artist from Bulgaria, Greece or Turkey, whose artwork is media art based, can apply for participation in the exhibition.

Deadline for submissions: 15th March 2013

Detailed information about the application process and the exhibition is available at the following link:
