Open call for artists, collectives and associations

Application deadline: August 31, 2017

Open call

For artists, collectives and associations:

In collaboration, Berlin contemporary arts institution Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) and new organizational structure ASA (Autonomous Space Agency) seek proposals from individuals, collectives and associations developing independent content, freedom of speech, and communal determination. This call seeks proposals that imagine, create, and maintain autonomous spaces in places where they are intended or have been destroyed.

Without exclusivity or essentialism, we look to the larger Mesopotamia region, inspired by multiplicity of the Euphrates and Tigris. We encourage proposals that focus on the creation of space for common human use—the commons and commonalities of a region that is defined by a diversity of peoples, languages, and cultures.

The open-call is primarily directed to artists and collectives who:
–are specifically from this geographical context,
–are currently based there,
–are not able or willing to be there because of current urgencies,
–critically relate their practice to the region with its history, peoples, languages,
–would like to make informed contributions to its rich context...
