nomadicArt Open Call // Neukölln Stories
Deadline: extended till 03.05.2020
"Neuköln Stories - Memories of a Neighbourhood" is part of an ongoing archiving project facilitated by a nomadicArt platform. It builds on a previous Moabit Stories projects realised in 2017 and 2018, collecting local stories from neighbors and Moabit shops. This year, nomadicArt in cooperation with LITE-HAUS Galerie will launch the project: Neukölln Stories “Memories of a Neighborhood”. This project is funded by Kulturfoerderung, Bezirksamt Neukölln von Berlin 2020.
OPEN CALL for Neukölln-based artists
We are currently looking for a collaboration with artists based in Neukölln, who would like to develop an art piece in the context of the current phase of this project, Neukölln Stories: Memories of Neighborhood - archiving the (hi)stories of Neukölln shops and their neighbors.
For more information about the Neukölln Stories project and calendar please read here.
If you are interested to know more about the last project Moabit Stories, please click here.
Selected Berlin-based artists will be asked to produce an artwork in their own way, through their artistic medium (photography, video, text, painting, comics, performances, sound). This will happen during the period between two-three months. In the course of these months, the artist will receive the research outcomes of interviews with shop owners and workers conducted by nomadicArt and obtained through the input of Neukölln residents, who themselves contributed to the selection of these sites. In the beginning of May 2020, all the selected artists will get together to talk and choose the shops they would like to investigate. Previously, nomadicArt team will be looking for local shops that would like to collaborate on this project. Of course, it is always welcome if the artist already has a local shop where she/he would like to develop her/his creative idea. During the 2020 annual Offenes Neukölln Festival (ONK) in June selected artists will meet together, share their works-in-progress, processes, and discuss a future final exhibition which will be situated LITE-HAUS Galerie + Projektraum in Autumn 2020. The short ONK festival exhibition will show visual representations of the works in progress, and provide an opportunity for further collaboration between visitors and artists. Artists must be available for the duration of the June exhibition (ONK) and Final exhibition (Autumn 2020).
Artists will benefit from a fee and budget for production materials.
