Final Call:

Call for Submissions

    "When the possibility of expressing social reform vanishes, time has
come to change our minds. [A.A. 2010]"

Reclaim the Mind is a transmedial collaborative initiative exploring empty
spots in the human mind by:

- occupying the area between 'reality' and 'truth',
- re-using forgotten (collective) memory-spaces,
- connecting mental processes with physical spaces,
- rewriting, tearing apart, scratching and stretching our lived
environment in an effort to liberate our ursurpated sensibilities.

Reclaim the Mind reclaims the idiomatic resources, abused by the Creative
Industries and jeopardized by a majority of National Governments, and will
intentionally break separations between established cultural and political

Reclaim the Mind aims to protect the incomprehensible treasure of mankind,
