Open Call - Currency as Space - Art & Design Competition and Exhibition


Deadline:
Sat Mar 01, 2014 00:00

Location:
Zagrab, Croatia

Open call: The exhibition BORROWORROB: In Search of Symmetry, in conjunction with the HDLU Treasury and Mint is holding an open call exhibition for the design of currency. Entrants are encouraged to design a paper currency or alternative for the geopolitics of space. 50 projects will be exhibited at the HDLU, 10 projects will be selected by an international panel for publication and commentary and receive an award. Deadline March 1st, 2014. http://borroworrob.org/

In what way can your currency be used for two different spaces? Could each side represent a different value or function? Could each side be used only in a specific location or space? What spatial distributions occur through the functions of your currency?

Currency: Currency is a space and at the same time a medium which distributes and spatializes things, people, money, and services in varying ways, with varying intensities, geographically and psychologically. The objects to which it was once tied (gold), has changed and will change yet again. Currency and space have quasi-fluid and quasi-stable functions. But a mechanism of exchange is not the same thing as the forces which have assembled it. How does one analyze those forces?

Exchange: What if those forces were never about equalizing relationships, mediating flow of goods and services, cancelling debts and promises, but rather a form of exchange in which something hidden is exchanged for something apparent, like a dream, as two sides of surface that never intersect? What if spatialization were the primary function of currency?

Space: Space is not homogeneous, it is composed of forces. There is a difference between entering space and leaving space, between acquiring space and losing it. Space is asymmetrical.

Asymmetry: The difference between what it takes to earn money and what it takes to spend it is also asymmetrical. The relationship between currency and space is not new, but its ability to distribute people, things, and relations are not always the same from place to place or from one historical moment to the next. So the question operating in this Open Call is how does currency spatializes people, their things, their relations? And how might that asymmetry be folded, doubled, inverted, and transformed into other functions?

Economic questions are not new as a form of artistic practice that shuttles between political and social research. But the variations of protest which many artists are drawn and which articulate economic, social, and political asymmetries, are simultaneously articulated as spatial conflicts which seek legitimacy and symmetry in relation to other forces in which space is opened and closed, bordered, claimed and distributed, tracked and counted, occupied and dispersed.

The HDLU Treasury and Mint will exhibit selected submissions during March 2014 in the PM Gallery. Submissions may be in the form of paper currency, installation or performance.

The Alternatives Fair offers direct access to and dialogue around numerous resources in NYC that provide alternative economic models for artists, art workers, and more—based on practices of mutual aid and cooperation. Alternatives Fair organized by Arts & Labor Alternative Economies Group. More details here: http://whatdowedonow.info

Performing Change features panels intended to inspire alternative aesthetics, interventionist tactics and economic models for critical art practices. In a time in which the conventional economic, social and culture values are in crisis, there is a need for new strategies and points of reference in art and politics, while diversifying resources for living and producing meaningfully.

Ontologies of Media Art Interventions – 4:00PM
Speakers: Vito Acconci, Stephen Duncombe, Wafaa Bilal. Moderator: Peter Macapia.

The talk will consider the practice of media art interventions through the lens of performance art – examining a number of Vito Acconci’s projects and The First Work of Media Art in 1968, which was an art performance consisting of pure information staged in the mass media. Wafaa Bilal’s provocative performances with new media will make the case for today’s expanded notions of space, body and audience, as flows of informational entities orchestrated over digital networks still affect physicality. Stephen Duncombe will present others form of performative media interventions for socially engaged art that he studied and fostered for decades. Artist, scholar and curator Peter Macapia will facilitate a discussion among the speakers to define informational bodies and arenas through post-structuralist theories.

Tactical Fiction for Alternative Realities – 5:00PM
Speakers: Lina Srivastava, Marisa Jahn, Mark Amerika. Moderator: Paolo Cirio.

The talk will explore the potential of inventive forms of storytelling to penetrate and change reality. Captivating plots and characters who perform via pervasive media can actively engage the public in alternative scenarios that inform, educate and inspire. Lina Srivastava will introduce Transmedia Activism in order to design social change through storytelling in NYC. Mark Amerika, a pioneer of interactive fiction, will explain the critical qualities of mediated realities and his recent transmedia fiction within the art world and its fads. Writer and artist Marisa Jahn will tell the story of the living legend of El Bibliobandido, which was produced in a region of Honduras with an 80% illiteracy rate.

The Art of Performing Political Innovation – 6:00PM
Speakers: Carne Ross, George E. Sánchez, Denisse Andrade Arévalo. Moderator: Paolo Cirio.

The talk will examine forms of political innovation as a potential art form. During accelerated ideological and economic crises, society still possesses powerful tools and knowledge that can be applied towards radical social change as never before. Today, reinventing social structures is a crucial creative challenge, which is a process of experimentation dedicated to a renewed political project. Carne Ross will discuss a form of participatory radical democracy through decentralized leadership and alternative banking. Performer George Emilio Sánchez will present projects that engage with participatory budgeting and learning through performances as a means to foster social engagement. Curator Denisse Andrade Arévalo will talk about art practices that, from a critical standpoint, evoke collectivity and suggest an engagement with - directly or indirectly - oppositional movements.

Performing Alternative Art Economies – 7:00PM
Speakers: Laurel Ptak, Jose Serrano-McClain of Trust Art, Carlo Zanni. Moderator: Paolo Cirio.

The talk will look at cases of alternative economic models for contemporary art. In a time of high speculation in the secondary art market and with a shortage of funding for young artists, new models are emerging that challenge the notion of consuming and collecting art. Laurel Ptak will present ideas regarding mutual aid for art labor and critique of art economies, while Jose Serrano-McClain will introduce a new platform for sharing resources and means of production among artists. Carlo Zanni will present his project PeopleFromMars.org to experiment new distribution models for media art and to share revenues on the sale of artworks among the artists involved in the platform.

Bios speakers:

Ontologies of Media Art Interventions – 4:00PM

Vito Acconci’s design & architecture comes from another direction, from backgrounds of writing & art. His poems in the late 60’s treated language as matter (words to look at rather than through) & the page as a field to travel over; his performances in the early 70’s helped shift art from object to interaction; later in the 70’s, his installations turned museums & galleries into interactions between spaces & people; in the early 80’s, his architectural-units were meant to be transformed by users. Most of his early work incorporated subversive social comment. His performance and video work was marked heavily by confrontation and Situationism. By the late 80’s his work crossed over & he formed Acconci Studio, a design firm that mixes poetry & geometry, computer-scripting & sentence-structure, narrative & biology, chemistry & social-science. The Studio uses computers to give form to thinking; they use forms to find ideas. They make not nodes so much as circulation-routes, they design time as much as space. His work has been shown and collected by the major art museums worldwide.

Bilal’s 2007 installation, Domestic Tension, also addressed the Iraq war. Bilal spent a month in a Chicago gallery with a paintball gun that people could shoot at him over the internet. The Chicago Tribune called it “one of the sharpest works of political art to be seen in a long time” and named him 2008 Artist of the Year. Bilal suffered repression under Saddam Hussein’s regime and fled Iraq in 1991 during the first Gulf War and spent two years in refugee camps in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
