OPEN CALL FOR PROJECTS OF ARTISTIC RESEARCH. NEXES CIUTAT / LA ESCOCESA - IDENSITAT 2022
Deadline 15 April 2022
La Escocesa and Idensitat are mounting an open call for individual or collective artistic research projects, to be carried out throughout 2022. One proposal will be selected, which will be granted a fee of € 5,000 gross, expandable to € 6,000 in the event of collectives.
Nexes Ciutat is a collaborative project between Idensitat and La Escocesa, proposing a line of artistic research that explores the transformations and new imaginaries which influence the reshaping of contemporary public space. Aware of the growing context of social dislocation and the redefinition of spaces for common interaction, we are interested in exploring elements related to the public right to the city, to culture and/or democracy, while also reviewing values such as the right to respect, dignity or cohabitation based on diversity; concepts that appeal to the idea of a diverse community built from connections, links, interactions or intersubjective relationships.
The purpose of this call is to support individual or collective artistic research- and experimentation-based projects, framed within the reshaping of contemporary public space, and adapted to Idensitat’s research strands, and La Escocesa’s mission brief, to be performed throughout 2022.
Research and experimentation projects are defined as those that emphasise the process, rather than the production of the work. For example, proposals that provoke dynamics of collective practice and critical thinking, that envision new art-based methodologies, or that make use of a process of trial and error.
Any person or group who meets the conditions of these rules may respond to the open call, without restrictions on age, country of origin, or a specific professional career. The 1st phase will be open until April 15, 2022. All the information regarding the selection process, terms and conditions and the necessary documentation to be provided may be found in the form on this page.
The application process consists of two phases. In the first phase, applicants should provide a brief general description of the project on the form on the same page as this open call. After the due date for receipt of applications has elapsed, between 5 and 10 proposals will be selected to advance to the second phase. These applicants will be granted an extended period to work on their proposals before the final selection, at which time, a final decision will be made.
In both phases, the documentation must be gathered in a single PDF, and sent to
