performingborders | LIVE – Open call for proposals for 2 digital conversations on Live Art and borders
performingborders | LIVE 2019 is a programme of events and new commissions curated by Alessandra Cianetti and Xavier de Sousa and focusing on the exploration of artistic practices happening within the UK Live Art sector around notions of cultural, juridical, racial, gendered, class, physical and everyday borders.
In partnership with the Live Art Development Agency (LADA), the organisers are inviting international proposals for digital conversations by Live Art curators, artists, art professionals, researchers, and thinkers that are interested in adding new perspectives on the relations between notions and lived experiences of borders within Live Art practices and are also willing to explore the potentialities of digital conversations as a way to re-imagine and share knowledge-production within the Live Art sector.
The format of the digital conversations can take any form, including video, video text, text, digital collage, audio, interactive digital pieces, etc. The curators will work with the selected applicants to assist the creation of the final piece.
The two selected proposals will be developed by the applicants in full digital conversations and published on both the performingborders platform (performingborders.live) and the Live Art Development Agency website (thisisliveart.co.uk) as contributions to the ongoing discussions around borders and Live Art and as free-to-access resources for artists, art professionals, academics, students, and general public interested in researching the topic.
The two selected applicants will receive an honorarium of £150 for the preparation and delivery of the digital conversation due by 30th May 2019. (Collective proposals are accepted although the honorarium will remain £150)
Everyone whose practice and research has been shaped by experiences of migration and borders is eligible and welcome to apply.
Deadline: 28 February 2019
