Call for applications : topophilia exhibition 2017


The Topophilia exhibition is the first in a series of two exhibitions organised by the MEETINGS project, to be held in the Nørager Farmhouse in Nees, Denmark, as part of the MEETINGS Festival from 1-10 September 2017. Artists working with film, video, moving image, animation, installation or new media are encouraged to submit works that can disrupt the rigid geometry of the farmhouse and disorient the dichotomy of “here” and “there”.

Topics may include: social, political and emotional dynamics in the home; interpretations of the domestic, especially in relation to the home; personal as political; internal and external structures; and inside/outside or here/there dichotomies.

Artists may submit a maximum of two works (either completed works or works in progress) for consideration.

MEETINGS is a video and performance project taking place in Denmark’s seven municipalities in Mid and West Jutland from 2016 till 2019. Over a four-year period, the organisers invite international contemporary artists to attend short or longer residencies in the Mid and West Jutland area in order to produce a number of videos and performances that will offer an artistic look at the area, as seen from the outside.

There is no time limit on the length of the works.

Individuals of all ages, genders, races and nationalities are invited to apply, and individuals from the Global South are especially encouraged.

Participating artists will receive 1,500 DKR (approximately €200), but unfortunately, travel costs, accommodation and meals are not covered by the project.

The deadline for applications is 31 March 2017
