Freiraum Festival & Summit > Open Call for Online Artistic Interventions

Freiraum Festival & Summit invites young, emerging and established artists from around the world to contribute to an overall discussion on 'the day after' and to the exploration of new artistic formats by submitting short, standalone works – video, sound, performance or other experimental formats – that will be presented as part of the online Summit.

The Freiraum Festival & Summit is a collaborative event taking place simultaneously in the physical and digital worlds. Μore than 20 institutions around Europe join forces to explore, reflect and react to the recent global crisis, which has accelerated and uncovered the urgency of the challenges of our time.

Freiraum Platform’s thematic focus on the state of Freedom in Europe today is seen through the perspective of the latest developments: it explores ‘the day after’. Spread around Europe, partner institutions organise local events addressing issues particular to their physical localities and audiences, while they also engage with global audiences in a 3-day online summit – a decentralised, live-streamed programme of talks, discussions and artistic interventions. There, they discuss critical issues connected to the global situation, together with established thinkers from different disciplines. The themes are connected to The State of Freedom in Europe (the ongoing biopolitical democrisis and the emergence of social movements and solidarities), and the State of the Arts (new formats and audiences).

Proposed works should respond to this thematic framework, and can be delivered live or as a recording, lasting 1 - 3 minutes maximum. Artists are encouraged to experiment with different mediums and formats. Selected proposals will need to be delivered by 15 October 2020, and will receive an honorarium of 200 euros. Minimum production costs may also be covered after discussion with the individual artists.

Deadline: 20 September 2020
