Refiguring the Feminist Future > Call for Web Residencies by Solitude & ZKM

This is a call for »the female future«. The feminism that is more than women; it is a philosophy of non-male, non-cis, non-white, non-western. All those people who have at one time or another been considered »less than« by the social systems that oppress them. This is a call for re-configuring reality towards other futures, so that we can collapse the political notion of linear space and time as an act of resistance.

This call is addressed to artists, activists, poets, writers, feminists and dreamers for challenging existing histories and speculative futures through storytelling and counter narrative imagining using web as their platform. It’s a call that asks: what does »the future is female« actually look like? It’s a call for crafting of the future that truly belongs to us.

Web performances, web sculpture, various forms of Net art and online interactions. All types of work are accepted as long as they fit into the format of storytelling and fabulation: websites, videos, writing, 3D objects, music, or applications. If specific software or environments are needed, please contact us in advance.

The curator for this residency is Morehshin Allahyari. 

For each call, the curator selects four project proposals, whose creators are rewarded with a four-week residency and 500 USD.

Deadline: 2 July 2018
