Shadow Casters calls for visual and performing artists (Zagreb, Croatia)
The Wall Displays project began in 2007 as a window/communication channel of the invisible parts of the long-term research project “Re-collecting Cities/Re-collecting Time”. The locations of WD editions are seven wall displays of the ex-cinema venue of Croatian Cinematheque placed in downtown Zagreb. From 2010 on, WD have grown into a separate and autonomous project. WD are a visible part of our research and reflection on the city, public and private space, urbanity, co-existence and identity.
Shadow Casters Wall Displays are equally addressed to random passers but also to the intentional readers: Wall Displays boxes are positioned in 8 location in the public space in the city of Zagreb.
This open call is open to visual and new media artists but also to researchers in Humanities (Ethnology, Sociology, Philosophy, Politology) as well as to interdisciplinary teams (Wall Display communicate equally through text and image). If the accepted proposition is based on the humanistic approach to the research of the city and candidate does not have background in design, the organisers will enable a collaboration with a designer.
This open call is also open to performance artist and the projects that rethink Wall Displays locations as a space for perfomative actions in the public sphere. In this case – Wall Displays edition is presented through the documentation of performed actions in the public space and are produced in collaboration with designer enabled by the organizers.
Part of the travel costs will be paid to the selected artist to go to Zagreb.
Deadline: 20 June.
