invite artists of all disciplines to a residency in the time frame July 23 to August 23 2018

combined with an exhibition in Berlin (August 24 to October 19 2018)

Open Call for Residency and Exhibition: The Soil we live of

Residency and exhibition deal with connotations of soil and ground as environment and as subject to human invasion. The outer layer of our planet is being sealed with concrete, the humus is being degraded by industrial agriculture. The soil looses its capacity to accumulate water and to host a broad variety of species. Works of all genres are possible, such as object, photographie, video, installation, sound, performance, painting, drawing. Open Call for Residency and Exhibition “The Soil we live of ”

The call addresses artists working in the field of sustainability and economy. We understand sustainability as respecting planetary boundaries and as orienting oneself towards goals of social justice. Economy we define as organising human provisioning. How we organise this much determines if and how we respect planetary boundaries and if social justice is possible at all.
