DEADLINE: 8 July 2013
ikono invites Berlin based artists to take part in a year-long series of open calls, held in collaboration with Artconnect Berlin, to promote the visibility of the arts on a local and international scale.
Every other month in 2013, ikono and Artconnect Berlin will encourage submissions of artworks from local artists. Two artworks will be selected from each open call and presented on our local and international media platforms throughout the following months. Each call will focus on a specific artistic medium as a criterion for submission: sculpture, photography, painting, installation and drawing.
We are really happy with the results of our first three open calls for sculpture artists, photographers and Painters! We are now ready to move on to the next one: until July 8th, we are searching for submissions from installation artists working and living in Berlin. There is no specific theme, but please remember that our media platforms are family friendly, so, in general, we don’t accept nudity, gore or other adult content.
Details about presentation of selected work:
The two artworks selected from each call will be showcased in two unique films produced by ikono. The videos will be broadcasted on our HDTV channels ikonoTV (Germany) and ikonoMENASA (Middle East, Northern Africa and Southern Asia). They will also be presented on Artconnect’s and ikono’s blogs, alongside with in-depth interviews with the featured artists and conducted by Artconnect Berlin. At the end of 2013, ikono will produce a short retrospective film highlighting all selected works to conclude the series.
The entire collection of open call interviews and films will remain available as an archive on Artconnect Berlin’s and ikono’s websites for general public access.
How to submit:
You will need an artist’s profile on Artconnect Berlin’s website, which is free and easy to create under www.artconnectberlin.com. Feel free to upload as many files as you want, as this is a great tool to connect with other artists in your area and share your art!
