Subject: FLAG METAMORPHOSES - Call for participation / submission

CALL FOR ENTRIES (please spread):


Next deadline: January 30, 2008


Continuously growing and animated by as many participating
artists from across the globe as possible, the flags of all
nations in the world are morphed into each other through
flash animation. Between each two flags, scenes appear that
show an aspect of the relations between the two countries.

This series of animations is an exploration into the meaning
of imagery on flags, aiming to create interrelated associations
through questioning, reassessing, fluidizing and re-mixing of
diverse national iconography.

FLAG METAMORPHOSES lays stress on the relations between nations
and identities as changing ones: Only in the permanent re-creation
of values, symbols and ways of life, in mixing with others and
differing from others, cultures and societies stay alive.
Each artist who creates a flag animation expresses such a relation
in his/her own way. You can contribute, too!
