<nettime-ann> [call] Call for Artists: Proposals Wanted Concerning the Worldwide Decline of Personal Time


Greetings,

 

My name is Milena Placentile, and I am a Canadian curator of
contemporary
art currently living in Denmark. I am working on an exhibition about
time,
and the fact that people around the world are recognizing that they have
less and less of it than ever before. In particular, I would like
emphasize
the absurdity of social systems that obligate people to work
unreasonable
hours under the promise of future comfort and security but at the expense
of
a decent quality of life in the present. 

 

As I would like the exhibition to offer a global perspective, I am
seeking
five or six artists/collaboratives from different parts of the world. In
addition, I am looking for projects that do more than reiterate the
reality
of everyday stress-overload by encouraging audiences to reflect on whom
we
are working for and why, what are we giving up, and for what larger
purpose.
I have attached the call for artists below. 

 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about
this
exhibition. I look forward to your response.

 

With best regards,

Milena

 

 

---Call for Artists: Proposals Wanted Concerning the Worldwide Decline
of
Personal Time---

 

What do we lose when we sacrifice increasing amounts of personal time in
order to make a living? What are the alternatives? 

 

Artists are invited to submit proposals for intervention-based projects
that
address the absurdity of social systems that obligate people to work
unreasonable hours under the promise of future comfort and security but
at
the expense of a decent quality of life in the present. 

 

The structure of the exhibition program will largely consist of off-site
events; however, artists should also consider components for
installation
within a gallery setting. Collaborative, interdisciplinary projects are
particularly encouraged. 

 

Proposals should include the following:

 

- Artist's statement

- Curriculum vitae with all current contact information

- Up to 10 small image files with an image list, and/or URLs for
audio/video
files and/or Internet-based work

 

To propose artworks/events that have not yet been produced/performed,
please
provide a detailed description of intent in addition to support
materials
documenting past work.

 

All submissions should be directed to info {AT} shintai-z.com before November
15,
2005.

 

Email is the preferred format for submissions. Please provide all text
in
the message body, or attached as a .pdf. Small image files (.jpg, .gif,
or
.tif) are welcome, but please note that other types of attachments will
not
be opened. 

 

If it is completely necessary to send a submission by regular mail,
please
note that only packages including sufficient postage will be returned.
Hard
copy submissions may be sent to the following address:
