Open Call for The First B_TOUR FESTIVAL
30th of August till the 1st of September 2013

B_Tour invites groups and individuals, to create tours that rethink storytelling, and suggest innovative, experimental approaches to the conventional format of a guided tour. Tours should encompass engaging ways of intervening public spaces and relate strongly to Berlin’s social/cultural/geographical fabric. The festival is particularly oriented to projects that challenge us to rethink our everyday relationship to the urban environment. The festival is a multidisciplinary arts platform where various artistic expression/disciplines meet social activism. We look for audio tours, video tours, tours without a guide, tours lead by animals! Anything goes.

Tours should aim to explore the critical dimension of citizenship, locality, mapping, high art, popular culture, gentrification, human- technology interface, psychogeography, geographical hegemony and politics of public space. Community involved projects, arts discipline cross-over projects and collaborative endeavors are particularly welcomed.

B because it's not A, it's an alternative to the hegemonic narrative of conventional guided tours; B because it's all about personal and communal Biographies; B because we want to Breach the Borders between public and private spaces.

Please download the application form and artists guidelines from: www.b-tour.org. Send them completed and signed to: info@b-tour.org by the 12th of June 2013.
