2023 Edition

Open Call

Call for proposals 2023

from September 26 to October 26 (CALL FINALIZED)


the nature of ACTION and the action of NATURE :

connective THRESHOLD of INTEGRATING powers

An invitation to attend to and explore the multiplicity of gestating po-ethical ecologies, in dissidence with the patriarchal necropolitics of the current world system.

From the awareness of a planetary crisis of extinction, unleashed by the unbalancing paradigm of the “surplus” that has worn away the fabrics of the common good, and that corrosively advances on human rights, the rights of the earth and the interwoven diversity of life itself, reconstitutive imaginaries of rebellious relationalities emerge and resurface in the kindness of mutual care and transmuting resilience:

a connective THRESHOLD of INTEGRATING potencies, breathes and throbs in the concurrent materiality of our bodies of TIME. *

Each artist or group of artists may present up to 2 audiovisual pieces that in their conception investigate and expand the dissident vocabularies from action-art or performance, in the context of the urgencies that affect us globally. The pieces may be of short, medium or long duration, must be subtitled in English if they contain an important discursive ingredient, and must be accompanied by an informed technical file with contextual and contact information as requested in the registration form.



The duration of the pieces is open.

As well as the date of making..
