Appel de textes pour esse no 77, dossier Indignation
Ce numéro se veut d’abord l’écho des bouleversements sociaux et politiques qui ont pris forme depuis 2011 et que rien, d’ailleurs, ne semble vouloir essouffler. Le « Printemps arabe » en est un déclencheur avec tous ces pays, à commencer par la Tunisie, dont les peuples se sont insurgés, dans la rue contre des gouvernements tyranniques et autoritaires qu’ils ont parfois réussi à déloger du pouvoir. Ce printemps-là de 2011, sur fond de crise économique, allait voir naître aussi le mouvement des indignés qui, de ville en ville, en Espagne, aux États-Unis et au Québec entre autres, ont occupé les espaces publics pour décrier pacifiquement les inégalités sociales impunément créées par les marchés financiers avec la complicité des gouvernements. Porté par le slogan « Nous sommes le 99 % », ce mouvement qui a proliféré jusqu’à l’automne appelait à la résistance.
Dans ce contexte, qu’en est-il des artistes et de l’art ? Le Printemps arabe a-t-il contribué a considérer davantage les arts du monde arabe par l’Occident (par exemple leur plus grande représentativité à la Biennale de Venise en 2011) ? Les artistes des pays arabes en révolte, de même que ceux provenant de d’autres régimes répressifs tels la Chine ou la Russie, traitent-ils des luttes pour la démocratie dans leurs oeuvres, témoignent-ils des affrontements vécus et de leurs réalités culturelles ? Connaissent-ils un changement quant à leur droit d’expression? Quelle est l’efficacité de l’art dans de tels contextes ? Du côté de nos sociales-démocraties où la permissivité est grande, comment se joue le désir de transgresser et quels sont les nouveaux motifs de résistance de l’artiste ?

Call for Artist‐in‐Residence: Re‐Focus Sustainable Art Submission deadline: June 10, 2012
The environmental impact of urbanization and industrialization has reached a critical point. It is now clear that our relationship to nature has drastically changed over time and that sustainable ways of living are necessary in order to deal with the complexity of the environmental challenges intrinsic to our subsistence; artists continue to fulfill a role of creating new forms of representations that illustrate, embody and propose different ways of understanding our relation to Nature.
Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS) in collaboration with the Ecology Action Centre (EAC) and the Khyber Centre for the Arts are hosting an artist‐in‐residency and public presentation of ideas that brings together contemporary artistic practices and current environmental research and engagement.
Description of Residency
The selected artist’s proposal will outline the production of a site‐specific artwork that challenges audiences to re‐ consider the idea of Nature and to explore new representations of ecological thinking. The challenge to the artist(s) will be to create a work that can be considered ecological in itself (and not necessarily the subject of the work.) For example, by considering an artwork’s material or immaterial origin, production process and future sustainability.
The duration of the residency extends for 4‐weeks taking place within the province of Nova Scotia between September and November 2012, (the exact dates are negotiated with artist and committee). The selected artist will be expected to complete the proposed work and to engage with different community groups in his/her process of production and dissemination, including staff and members of EAC and VANS. During the residency, the artist will be encouraged to conduct a manageable number of studio visits with members of VANS.
In the final week of the residency, the artist will present the documentation of their process at the Khyber Centre for Arts in Halifax, NS through exhibition, an artist talk and a master class, and also, engage in organized public discussions on contemporary eco‐art practices and the intersection of contemporary art and environmental practices.
Eligibility
Proposals will be accepted from artists across Canada who have experience in producing art work for public discussion and within professional contexts. Artists submitting must be a current member of Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS), even if they are applying from out of province. Please note that artists can attain a VANS membership at the time of application.
Support
A $2000 artist fee will be paid for the 4‐week residency, as well as a small project material stipend and a per diem. Accommodation will be provided as well as any travel necessary in and around Nova Scotia. For such purposes, it would be ideal if the artist had a valid driver’s license.
Submissions
All artistic media is welcome. It is recommended that artists research environmental projects initiated by Ecology Action Centre, current environmental issues, and consider these in their proposed concept and materials, before submitting their proposal.
All submissions must include:

PLATFORM announces a call for submissions for film + video in response to the theme of the palimpsest. A screening will be presented in conjunction with PLATFORM’s palimpsest year and will take place in the Artspace Building.
Taking our cue from the historical phenomenon of the palimpsest as a scroll or text that is written only to be erased in order to make room for the inscription of new ideas, PLATFORM is currently in a year-long investigation into how photography and its sister media, film and video, can act as contemporary palimpsests or re-writable texts. Winnipeg is a prairie city where you can see a snowstorm coming three days away. The flatness of our location holds with the possibility that we take in not only the periphery but also the past and future. palimpsest, should not be mistaken as a sentimental elucidation about the past. It explores a rhizomatic vision of past, present, and future in various simultaneous possibilities.
Specifications:
– Film +/or video of all genres accepted / multiple submissions welcome
- Artist fees will be paid
- Emerging/Established artists are invited to submit
- 10 minutes per title maximum

Alpha-ville Festival Call for Submissions
Alpha-ville is the London International Festival of Post-digital Culture. The festival presents a unique combination of advanced music, films, design, digital and new media art exhibitions, community events, urban interventions, workshops, labs and a Symposium on Post-digital Culture.

The 4th edition will take place in London from 3-7 October 2012.

2012

THEME: ‘Unfinity’

We live in a unique moment in history, between two rapidly changing worlds. One is the world of decaying political and economic structures and the other is the world of an infinite explosion in technology and information. There are conflicting mindsets in every part of our culture: the contradiction between ubiquitous virtual presence and physical presence creating an identity crisis; the non-hierarchical, organic web structure clashing with hierarchical, non-organic real-world structures; the myth of the individual as a genius vs the power of the crowd and the collaborative practice; the passive and observant attitude set against active participation and co-creation. These opposing forces are placing us in a paradoxical state that we have named Unfinity.

Unfinity is a pull between these poles, a hybrid space. It’s timeless and uncertain. We believe that to ease the state of Unfinity in a human and meaningful way it is crucial to be creative, to experiment, to challenge and take action.

Alpha-ville 2012 invites artists, designers, thinkers, digital and non-digital people to consider, participate in, create and express what will be the next steps for building an alternative future that, we hope, will belong to the people.

KEYWORDS

Timeless, Hybrid, Infinity, Code, Data, Body, Physicality, Space, Clould Culture, Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality, Experimentation, Unfinished, Future of Art, New Aesthetic, Failure, Prototype, Interactivity, Democratisation, Activism, Hacktivism, Avatars, 3D Printing, Openweb, Smart Cities, Sustainability, Internet of Things, Censorship, Privacy, Identity, Grassroots, Uncertainty, Collaborative Design, DIY, Active Citizenship…

Interactivos?’12 Ljubljana: Obsolete Technologies of the Future 
>
This workshop is part of Studiolab, a 3-year Europe-wide initiative that merges the artist’s studio with the research lab. Funded by the EC Seventh Framework Programme in 2011, Studiolab is a European network that provides a platform for creative projects that bridge divides between science, art and design.
Interactivos?’12 Ljubljana: Obsolete Technologies of the Future
Ljudmila = ljubljana digital media lab seeks proposals for its first ever intensive and mind-blowing workshop on Interactivos?’12: Ljubljana for art & tech & scientists professionals. Ljubljana’s edition of the workshop will be dedicated to explorations of Obsolete Technologies of the Future, collaborative prototyping vol. 1, rethinking the qualities of outdated technology and making way for a long-term, sustainable usage of technology in our environment in the decades to come.
Interactivos?’12 Ljubljana will enable participants to build prototypes in the fields of art and technology. We are interested in receiving proposals that explore the potential of technological solutions on the aesthetic or practical level. Having in mind that anyone who aims at being contemporary is already dated, we are especially interested in submissions which make use of existing or outdated technologies in an entirely unexpected way to encourage novel approaches, promote sustainability, and explore possibilities in the far future. The outdated technologies have not been pushed aside and rendered insignificant merely for pragmatic, but also for economic and political reasons. The topic suggests – but is not limited to – dealing with increasing lack of natural resources, and ecological questions in urban environments and overlooked technologies of the past. It could also be connected to media hacking and subverting the automatism of the behaviour in the society, suggesting new forms of social networking that are not dependent on existing corporative hierarchies.
Alongside artworks, innovative installations, collaborative practices, we will also encourage thinking differently about how we set up products and services for our demands and everyday living. A glimpse into the past makes us understand the reasons behind technological development and what role art plays in promoting or challenging the existing modes of behaviour. Is it possible for an artwork to hack the system from within? Is it possible to think outside of our mindframes? To think outside of the binary code? To view the world in nano scale? To explore our perception beyond the virtual and the real? To imagine moving fast without an exhaust engine? To explore how the web should operate? To turn off  and tune in?
Orientation of the projects
Suggested areas of focus include:
•    Projects that suggest different usages of existing urban technological infrastructures
•    Rethinking outdated technologies and recycling the computer and IT wasteland.
•    Projects which allow people to interact with technology to provoke new ways of perceiving the surrounding, the self, the visual, the material, and stimulate aesthetic experience.
•    Particular attention will be paid to projects which promote open source communities, collaborative work and collective modes of behavior.
•    Playing with data – submissions for works, which connect data forms and physically embody data streams, bridging ‘on’ and ‘off’ line worlds.
•    Products and services that provide sustainable solutions for our needs, including the use of open data, data mash ups and remixes.
We are seeking proposals for:
•    Installations (interactive, responsive, generative)
•    Performances (participatory, gesticular, dance)
•    Visualisations (moving images, generative, projections, holograms)
•    Free Software (FLOSS) / Open Hardware / Open Design / Services / Start-ups / Apps / Devices

Submission Guidelines:
From among the submissions received a maximum of 6 projects will be selected to be produced in a two-week workshop at Ljudmila in September 2012. The chosen projects will be developed with the aid of several advisors and assistants in addition to a large group of collaborators.
The open call is aimed at designers, artists, engineers, coders, sociologists, architects, city planners, teachers, programmers, psychologists, journalists, environmentalists, or to any other person interested in the theme of the workshop.
Proposals may be presented by individuals or groups. Each participant or team may present as many projects as they wish.
Selected projects must be open to the participation of other interested collaborators who will be able to contribute to the production of the pieces during the development of the workshop.
Therefore, there are two levels of involvement in the workshop:
1 – as a project leader
2 – as a collaborator in any one of the selected projects
Once the projects have been selected, the second step in the process will involve a new call for those people who would like to participate in the production of the projects. The call for collaborators will be open from 2 July 2012 at Medialab-Prado’s website.

General Information of the Workshop
The Interactivos?’12 Ljubljana workshop aims to be a collective platform for research, production, and learning, offering support in developing the selected projects. The projects will be carried out in multidisciplinary groups comprised of the project leaders joined by interested collaborators, with conceptual and technical advice from the advisors. Ljudmila, Medialab-Prado and SGMK will provide materials for the development of selected projects, as much as possible.
During the workshop, various activities will be scheduled, such as talks, presentations, seminars or specific mini-workshops. Work days will be adapted to the specific needs of the projects in conjunction with the activities ongoing at Ljudmila.
Opening hours: 10 am – 8 pm
Given that the main objectives of the workshop are to foster the development, distribution, and free access to new approaches and new technology tools, participants are encouraged to prepare proper documentation for the developed projects, both during and after the workshop, and to publish the results and source code under licenses that grant access and distribution of the knowledge produced during the workshop.
Technical Requirements
The evaluation team will assess submitted projects for technical feasibility – successful projects should have clearly specified technical and spatial requirements. Should the evaluation team have doubts about any technical requirements, they will contact the authors of the proposal.
Projects will be carried out and presented at Ljudmila. Ljudmila will provide basic equipment and the means to produce the selected projects, pending prior application from the proposal’s author(s).

Call for artist proposals: Monument to Cold War Victory
The Committee for Tacit History

Deadline: November 1, 2012

Application fee: none
The Committee for Tacit History is issuing a call for proposals for a Monument to Cold War Victory, an open-call competition for a public monument commemorating the outcome of the Cold War. Artists from around the world are encouraged to submit proposals by November 1, 2012.
Monument to Cold War Victory is a conceptual project by the artist Yevgeniy Fiks, taking the form of an open-call, international competition for a public, commemorative work of art.
For over two decades, public signifiers of the Cold War, such as the Berlin Wall, have been framed in terms of destruction and kitsch. A monument created at the moment of its own destruction, the Wall encapsulates the continuing geopolitical imagination of the conflict as linear, continuous, binary, and terminal: the culmination of a now-historicized narrative of competing empires. But while the impact of half a century of sustained ideological conflict still reverberates through all forms of public and private experience—from Middle Eastern geographies of containment to the narrative structures of Hollywood—it has yet to be acknowledged through a public and monumental work of art. The Cold War, the longest and most influential conflict of the twentieth century, has no publicly commissioned commemoration in the United States.
This project examines the enduring genre of war monuments, memorials, and institutionally framed and commissioned artworks. How might the legacy of the Cold War, in all its complex material, social, and cultural forms, be visually articulated? In what ways might the notion of “victory,” implicit in all retroactive commemorations of conflict, be interpreted? Can the traditional, formal structure of the monument, and the historical revisionism endemic to that form, be redefined?
Artists are invited to participate in this project by submitting a proposal for a public monument commemorating the outcome of the Cold War by November 1, 2012.
All submissions must be made through the website: http://www.coldwarvictorymonument.com/.
Submissions should include: a one-page narrative text on your proposed work and its relationship to the legacy of the Cold War, the notion of “victory,” and its reevaluation (if any) of the monument form; a visual schema in the form of three images; and an artist CV. A select number of finalists will be awarded a stipend and the opportunity to further develop their proposal for an institutional exhibition. The submitter of the winning proposal will be awarded a cash prize, and their concept will be implemented and installed in a publicly accessible location, to be determined, in the United States.
Monument to Cold War Victory will be juried by a distinguished panel of cultural and intellectual figures, including Vito Acconci, Susan Buck-Morss, Boris Groys, Vitaly Komar, Viktor Misiano, and Nato Thompson.
For further information, contact curator Stamatina Gregory, stamatina [arobas] coldwarvictorymonument [point] com
This project is initiated by The Committee for Tacit History, an international curatorial collective and research body dedicated to furthering interdisciplinary, practice-based investigations in history and visual culture.

Artist-run residency HMK {Hotel MariaKapel} invites artists to submit group-proposals for our 2013 residency programme.
Deadline: June 1st 2012 
Application fee: none
About HMK
HMK {Hotel Mariakapel} is an artist-run residency and project space in Hoorn, a 15th century town by the IJsselmeer, just 40 km north of Amsterdam. In the old center of the town, in a medieval orphanage with a semi public inner garden and former Maria Chapel, HMK receives artist from all over the world.
The programme involves artists and curators working in a wide range of media, focusing on installation and context based work, video and performance art. Projects are developed both in the surroundings of Hoorn, public space and in the exhibition space. In 2012 HMK was kindly supported by several local and national foundations.
We offer:
A free stay at our residency to complete a period of work culminating in a final exhibition in the adjacent exhibition space.
Full and free use of all accommodation and living facilities (private room, wireless internet, shared kitchen, washing machine / dryer, basic tools, some audio & video equipment ). We can host 8 people in 4 bedrooms, with projects by larger groups and different residencies overlapping it is likely you’ll be sharing a room

**
Please note: HMK aims to provide a budget to resident artists depending on individual projects, but strongly advises artists to secure additional funding elsewhere. In this budget we aim to offer a small artist fee, free use of the guesthouse and its facilities, possible reimbursement for travel costs and reimbursement of productioncosts.
HMK is responsible for all mail-outs and promotional activity in relation to the shows, which include regional, national and international contacts. 
Residencies vary in length and depend on the nature of the work; we feel between one and two months is a good duration. The length of the residency is agreed in advance. The resulting exhibitions which are open to the public, usually take place for 3-4 weeks.
We are looking for:
Projects that make full use of the unique opportunities offered. The long stays at HMK lead to intensive local and international collaboration while developing new individual and/or group work for an exhibition or other presentation in HMK and/or in Hoorn. We are also keen on artistic projects that do not only focus on art itself but that, in content or practice, are able to step outside the box and make connections outside an art-context.
HMK focuses on collaborations and group-projects (between 3 and 6 artists); the nature of the collaboration is important to us. Preferably you work with artists or others with whom you haven’t (extensively) worked with before.

La résidence accueille des artistes internationaux aux pratiques très variées : volume, installation, performance, vidéo, peinture. Des théoriciens, des critiques d’art, des commissaires d’exposition sont également présents lors de la résidence.

Atelier Topaz – résidence

Opasatika, Ontario, Canada
Le lieu

Situés au cœur de la forêt boréale, les Ateliers Topaz sont à la fois un lieu de retraite et un centre de création pour artistes, toutes disciplines confondues. L’endroit parfait pour la réflexion, l’évasion. Le groupement d’édifices fait 900 mètres carrés et repose sur 14 hectares face à la route Transcanadienne. Il donne sur un étang de deux hectares. Topaz c’est la « Route 66 » dans le nord de l’Ontario. L’endroit, modeste et nostalgique, rappelle aussi les grandes épopées de la colonisation francophone de l’Ontario. Ces studios de création ou cette résidence d’artistes, endroit idéal pour les arts visuels, sont situés au centre du Canada, à mi-chemin entre l’Atlantique et le Pacifique, là où les étoiles deviennent les topazes de la nuit.
Ce qu’on offre
D’abord l’espace et, l’espace de travail déterminés selon les besoins de l’artiste. Les espaces polyvalents permettent d’y faire de la peinture, de la sculpture, de l’installation, etc. L’atelier de menuiserie, le Bar à clou, est équipé des outils de base. Un magasin d’objets trouvés est disponible autant pour l’inspiration que pour l’utilisation dans une œuvre. Le peintre apporte ses pinceaux, le musicien son instrument et l’écrivain son ordi.

Les personnes qui séjournent aux Ateliers Topaz jouissent de l’accès à la cuisine et sont responsables de préparer leurs repas. Toutefois Laurent peut aussi leur cuisiner de petits plats typiquement canadiens-français aux besoins ou aux désirs. 

Topaz possède deux suites avec lit double et une chambre avec lit simple. Chacune possède sa salle de toilette avec douche. Ces installations évoquent admirablement le style des années 1960. 

Pour la baignade, le Lac des Cœurs se situe à deux kilomètres à l’est. Pour le canotage ou la pèche, la rivière Opasatika est deux kilomètres à l’ouest. Pour se déplacer, il y a de vieux vélos ou la marche. Pour un frais très raisonnable, votre hôte peut aussi vous conduire ou organiser un déplacement vers Kapuskasing à l’est ou vers Hearst à l’ouest. 

Les matériaux d’artistes ne sont pas disponibles dans la région. Il est donc important de faire vos achats avant votre séjour, à moins que vous travailliez avec des matériaux que l’on peut se procurer dans des magasins ordinaires ou même en nature.

Abandon Normal Devices CANAL BOAT RESIDENCY
Location: Manchester, England
Deadline: 25/05/12
Duration: One month
In 2011 AND worked in partnership with the British Waterways and The Waterways Trust to pilot an artists residency programme on the Canals of the Northwest of England. Due to its success we will be offering another unique opportunity for an artist to be in residence on a canal boat on and around the Manchester and Pennine waterways in summer 2012.
The aim of the programme is to offer artists (minimum of two participants) a dedicated period of time to develop research or a project in this unique habitat that questions what it is to be resident on the waterways. AND are seeking applications from individuals / groups working in emerging artistic practice that questions normality. Applicants should have an established background in their respective fields and should be able to demonstrate how a residency period at AND will assist the development of their research and practice.
RESIDENCY DETAILS

This residency will be based on a Canal Boat on the Manchester and Pennine Waterways, Northwest England for approximately four weeks in August and September 2012. Accommodation will be provided on a canal boat for four weeks, full training on boat handling and maintenance will be provided at the beginning of the residency. A route will be mapped out in collaboration with the resident artists and partner organisations.
The handling of a canal boat requires two people, therefore the residency is open to a minimum of two people. There may be a possibility to provide accommodation for more participants, so the residency encourages applications from collaborating artists, collectives and families (fees and stipend remain the same).
The following budget is available to the resident artist (to be managed by AND):
• An artists’ fee and stipend of £1500 GBP (to include any materials and/or production and living costs)
• Travel expenses to the UK of up to £1000 GBP

La commune de Moncontour ouvre, d’ici Juillet 2012, sa Maison des Artistes et des Artisans d’art. Dans le cadre de l’inauguration, la commune lance un appel à candidature aux artistes et aux artisans d’art pour les Résidences d’été 2012.
La Maison des Artistes et des Artisans d’art se compose de quatre ateliers ouverts ainsi que de trois logements pour accueillir les artistes et les artisans d’art et leur permettre de travailler sur place. Elle a pour but d’accueillir et de promouvoir ces derniers tout en privilégiant les moments d’échange entre les résidents et les visiteurs. A la fin de sa résidence, l’artiste ou l’artisan d’art est invité à exposer ses œuvres à l’intérieur des 310 m² du bâtiment ou bien à l’extérieur, sous le préau prévu à cet effet.
