M/other becomings is a collaboration between Laboratory for Aesthetics and Ecology (DK), The Association for Arts and Mental Health (DK), Kultivator (SE), Art Lab Gnesta (SE), and Bioart Society (FI).
Through durational collaborations between experimental cultural institutions, artists, and thinkers, m/other becomings will cultivate intergenerational and multispecies methodologies, make space for the investigation of domestic resistance practices, and probe technologies of reproduction, resilience, and recuperation.
The call is searching for artwork production proposals that explore reproductive futures and how life sciences transform and challenge our ideas and possibilities of reproduction and the maternal. The final work will be included in the m/other becomings exhibition during spring 2022 in Helsinki.
The organisers accept both new proposals or projects in the making to be finalised or developed further. Artists, researchers and practitioners can apply as individuals or as working groups.
The organisers offer artwork production budget and fee, curatorial guidance and inclusion in the m/other becomings exhibition in spring 2022 in Helsinki. The overall budget for the production including the artist fee is 10,000 EUR, which will, depending on the applications, be awarded to one or split between several proposals. The exhibition will have its own budget.
