Open Call. Statements 2022

A Sense of Relatedness

Kunstraum Lakeside invites artists and cultural practitioners to participate in its 2022/2023 program with their own “Statement“. They are in search of performative formats that relate to the Kunstraum’s annual topic and experiment with modes of representation in the visual arts, in the context of an institution at the interface between art, science, and technology.

Deadline: January 31, 2022 (midnight)

Annual topic: A Sense of Relatedness
In its annual program “A Sense of Relatedness”, Kunstraum Lakeside investigates an array of different types of relationships: The focus is connecting lines, entanglements, alliances, networks, or kinships and their underlying mechanisms; it explores encounters between the human and nonhuman, between the material and immaterial, between the organic and technical, and, last but not least, between places and times. In its annual program 2022 Kunstraum Lakeside traces the ubiquitous longing for a sense of clarity, comprehensible entities, and predictable outcomes, and contrasts it with images that consider the incomplete, diverse, and volatile—they are not images of the either-or but of the as-well-as.

Three production days are available for the realization of each “Statement”. These three days include both setup and dismantling at Kunstraum Lakeside. The Kunstraum will be open to the public on one of the three days.

Kunstraum Lakeside provides 1000 euros of production funding per “Statement”, including fees, travel, and accommodation expenses.
