REAKTOR Potenziale (Austria) > Open Call

The REAKTOR’s cross-disciplinary programme features works that are imbued with the spirit of the times. Indeed, what is still considered experimental today may well one day be perceived as timelessly permanent. That is particularly true of contemporary art. The REAKTOR’s open call is designed to seek out that very potential in the visual arts, hence the title Potenziale. Particular emphasis is to be placed on space-defining art for the REAKTOR’s architectural core, i.e. its main hall. The chosen artists will be invited to flesh out and implement their submitted concept as part of a fortnight’s residency and then showcase it to the public as part of an exhibition. Deadline: 30 April 2019.
