Call for artists - Festival of Art as Research

From the 7th to the 14th of May 2012 the Festival of Art as Research (FAR) brings together artistic researchers from all over the world to explore the phenomenon of TRANSLATION.

FAR provides an opportunity for 20 artists to discover methods of artistic research and explore their own work in a discourse with other artists:
Three days of intense artistic work and research around the topic „TRANSLATION“.
A practical introduction to the field of art as research.
Exploration of methods and concepts of art-based research.
Development of existing work and investigation in cooperation with international interdisciplinary artists.

FAR invites artists and spectators to experience a festival that  includes presentations of all different artistic disciplines under the common theme of art as research. 

Three days of public presentation of  the work, focussing on creating modes of presentation
that include the spectator in the process of discovery.

An exciting transdisciplinary art festival with performances, exhibitions, concerts, combinations of all and more....

FAR invites all interested artists, researchers, artistic researchers, and whoever else is interested, to get together and discover the phenomenon of TRANSLATION in its wide range of manifestations:

How do we translate from the inside to the outside and the other way round?
What gets lost on the way of translation and what emerges?
How can we impart artistic knowledge?

These questions and many more are waiting for your inspiring contribution.

If you are interested in participating, please send us your application until the 15th of April 2012.
