Masters & Servers / Open Call for Work
Thu 09 Jul 2015
We’re excited to launch the new Open Call with our european Masters & Servers collaborators. We are seeking to commission a new project across the forms of interventions, data manipulation, representation, research or storytelling, with the opportunity of €5000 towards fees and production costs. Deadline Sunday 20 September 2015.
WHAT KIND OF PROJECT?
We are interested in work that can cast light over the dark life of data and other controversial, invisible aspects of networked societies. Welcoming proposals related to practical first-hand experiences in:
– the control of information by governments and private companies;
– the representation of the invisible, especially in relation to private and public power structures;
– the dark side of slick and apparently open social media;
– under-reported people’s habits in “the cloud”.
The call is open to artists, technologists, activists, inventors and individuals and collaborators that occupy the spaces in between. We are interested in different approaches, including performance, uncanny experiences, examples of direct resistance or playful experiments in the grey area where counter-power is face to face with power.
