Call for submissions
EYE OF THE I
19m SLIDE-PROJECTION in a store-front close to AlexanderPlatz
an artists project by Sibylle Hofter / Büro Georg S. Schwimmer - Berlin
in
sequence of Café Kawiarnia EUROPA (Lodz ? Berlin)

since the submissions in spring were very interesting and enriching,
again
we cordially invite artists to submit proposals for our summer/ autumn
editions.
1. Hunt (working title)
2. EYE OF THE I
3. (yet untitled) heavily site-specific
deadline 10. 8.
1st opening aprox.18.8.

1. Hunt (working title)
Hunting in all its aspects. wait, peek, ambuscade, bag, slay, move
ahead,
besides you will find the store front of a hunting store, man and woman,
I
hope i forgot a lot.

2. EYE OF THE I
we choose works connected with the subject of dominating secret
services,
for this we would be especially glad to receive submissions from eastern
european countries and south africa. The focus here will lie on the
individuum:
on one hand: what happens to a person who (in the name of an
institution)
observes the private life of someone, and on the other hand: what
happens
to a person who involuntarily shares parts of its private life with
someone unnamed, with an institution.
and of course since we are visually based: what kind of visuality is
caused by these enormeous apparatus of observation, fear and statistics.

3. (yet untitled) heavily site-specific
for non-berliners, who don´t research on site, we can specially do
photographs. On www.hofter.de we prepared links and information about
the
environments, if usefull we´ll add more.

THE SITE
the whole complex of buildings at the corner to alexanderplatz is used
by
BStU ("Fed. Commissioner for the Records of the State Security Service
of
the former GDR". in socialist times: "house of statistics" The building
is
situated in direction to greifswalder street, parallel to the tunnel
exit.
vis a vis to the former "house of travelling" and the police headquarter
(from 20ties till 90), since than used by different branches of police.
behind our panes was the Mocca-Bar.
Besides is a hunting store, formerly the "Suhl hunting hut". Allover:
north and east are big apartment-blocks, and traffic axes to all
directions. the plan is to tear down the building.

each participant can prepare about 5 window-fronts one after the other. 
after consultation may be more.
Please don´t do less than 3, they don´t need big differences between
each
other, but spectator normally needs some time to get into a new work.
You
can send sketches to possibly avoid dispensable work.
Each edition consists of 80 phases and is shown each night for about 3
weeks. each phase stays 10 Seconds. after about 12 minutes the the cycle
repeats, means that time is a strong factor, but no film-like interval.
we need jpg format (please download the empty file from the website and
use the optimised new one.
the usable window-front is 2,2 high and 19 m long, consisting of 8
nearly
square fields (7 plus the double sided door)text-works turned out to be
technically difficult (nevertheless we love good text-works) Please
study
the documentation, do get as used as possible to the conditions of the
place. Its really interesting but difficult, there´s unevitable
streetlight and a wire fence infront. No chance just to use it as a
neutral outdoor exhibition space. Tender contrasts will be swallowed,
bigger structures which rich of contrast from their nature are more
applicable.
(documentation will soon be online, or ask us)
we cannot pay honorary.

By submitting works THE PARTICIPANT DEFINITLY DECLARES that he/she
posesses all the rights neccessary for publication of their works. The
participant gives us the unlimited right to publish their works within
the
frame of this project without any honorary.
submissions and your email adresses will be treated confidental.

Looking forward for your submissions!
Sibylle Hofter

Please forward this mail to where it might make sense!
feel free to ask if something is not clear
apologies for x-posting
please let us know, if you don´t want any more information!
