Open call for artists from Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia: Transkaukazja - “Art as the Key to Freedom”
Application deadline: 31 July 2015
Transkaukazja with Kultur Aktiv as it German partner would like to invite contemporary artists from Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia to take part in the next edition of Transkaukazja in Germany under the theme “Art as the Key to Freedom”. From 10 – 22 September 2015 the selected artists will collaborate in five different locations in Saxony/DE.
The current open call is addressed to artists active in the fields of video, performance, textual, visual and other art forms. Participants should present a project which they already have focused upon, but which still has room for further development at a high artistic level. The project should have an interactive dimension that can be shared with audiences and local artists in Germany and it should address this year’s theme. During their stay in Germany, artists should be ready to develop their work from one location to another and to demonstrate this progress on a special wall newspaper («стенная газета») that will travel with them to all the stations.
