  • Open Call for artists - The New Dictionary of Old Ideas

  • The New Dictionary of Old Ideas
     
    Project organized by MeetFactory Prague in cooperation with The State Silk Museum in Tbilisi, Trafostacja Sztuki in Szczecinie, hablarenarte in Madrid.
     
    The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
     
    The leading theme of our project is Central Europe – a formation between East and West which in the course of centuries has changed its geographic as well as political dimensions many times. We want to respond to the current cultural and political situation – with the rise of nationalistic politics, populism, Euro-skepticism and anti-immigration attitudes in the Central Europe. This tendency can be observed not just locally but in the whole Europe. To go against it we proposed a tool to provide a better understanding of regional specifics – The New Dictionary of Old Ideas.
     
     
    Open Call for artists
     
    Artists based in Georgia are invited to apply for participation
    We are looking for artists who are willing to work in the international context and with a capacity to carry out the idea of the exhibition that deals with Central European specifics.
    It is necessary that she/he would be interested in working with politics and contemporary topics with a new and challenging approach.
     
    Since the project is narrowed to regional identity issues we are seeking for someone who would be able to develop it into a more universal/general level that could be understandable also outside of Central Europe.
