Nepal is the Best Value Destination to travel to. Nepal’s cultural landscape is every bit as diverse as its physical one. The spectacular Himalayas comprise the highest mountains on earth and boast a surreal landscape of snow-covered peaks sure to leave a powerful impression. The Himalayan country of Nepal, situated between India and China, offers some of the best access to these mountain peaks, where landscapes vary from subtropical valleys (complete with banana trees) to alpine forests (home to grazing yaks). Customs and traditions differ from one part of Nepal to another. A conglomeration lies in the capital city, Kathmandu, where cultures are blending to form a national identity. Kathmandu Valley has served as the country’s cultural metropolis since the unification of Nepal in the 18th Century. A prominent factor in Nepali’s everyday life is religion. Adding color to the lives of Nepalese are festivals the year round which they celebrate with much pomp and joy. Food plays an important role in the celebration of these festivals. Capital is surrounded by a valley full of historic sites, ancient temples, shrines, and fascinating villages. Kathmandu is an incredibly diverse historic city with breathtaking Newari architecture, centuries-old Hindu and Buddhist religious sites. […]
We are inviting visual and new media artists to submit their artwork for the exhibition program of the 8th Student International Film Festival. For the last seven years, STIFF Festival has produced a rich accompanying program that elaborates and complements the thematic focus of its film program. With the emphasis on contemporary art practices, STIFF’s exhibition program gathers artists from all over the globe, dealing with relevant social, political, as well as intimate aspects of everyday life. This year the festival is giving attention to the Body, and the exhibition program aims to explore socially relevant ways of interpreting the body in a contemporary environment saturated with images. What is the relationship between a body and the moving image? Are we our bodies or is the body just merchandise we trade on the labor market and offer in intimate relationships? How to position ourselves in a world where objects move more freely than people? When is our body an instrument of knowledge, interaction, and intimacy with the world, and when is it a space of discomfort and restriction? Do we allow our bodies to be playful? We encourage a view of the body as productive and creative, the body as a process that […]

The third ESC open call and its challenge for wave #2031 Spring-Summer is here! Thinking of the contemporary immersed in the digitalization world, once again VVOVVA asks artists to ‘Create art as you would do in 10 years in the future’. In particular, we aim to share works that explore the relations of nature and technology; and seek answers to questions that research the bond of the two. For example: What is to come? Will technology help nature to survive? Can those two exist in harmony? Do we do enough to preserve natural resources? This time the contemporary art gallery JOEY RAMONE → (located in Rotterdam, Netherlands) will shape the future of the ESC and select the most interesting works in collaboration with VVOVVA. Founded in 2012 by Greek artist Kiki Petratou & Dutch collector Hans Bakker, JOEY RAMONE can also be described as a ‘half-artist run gallery’. Right from the start, the gallery worked with international artists who use a diverse range of media to explore contemporary socio-political, cultural, and technological themes. The main objective of JOEY RAMONE is to provide a platform for contemporary art and discourse — an open communication or debate. ESC Wave #2031, SS is curated by JOEY RAMONE & […]
DUPLEX | Artists in Residence is an artist-run space, housing several studios, a residency program and a gallery, located in the center of Lisbon, in Graça neighborhood. Seeking to stimulate creative processes, experimentation and plastic production as well as the discourse that these dynamics originate, Duplex presents itself as a privileged territory for the coexistence of different artists, different ways of creating and different ways of thinking about the work of art and its context. Valuing advances and setbacks, valuing error, failure, and disruption as participants in contemporary praxis, the entire structure and functioning of the Duplex seeks, in addition to celebrating the final results, to bring the public closer to the conceptual and procedural richness of artistic creation. For resident artists and curators, Duplex residency program allows a quick insertion in the artistic community of Lisbon, offering the possibility, time and space to develop and show their work. With conversations, visits, discussions and monitoring of projects developed in residence, Duplex seeks to adapt to the interests and needs of each group of residents, working through open calls, but also accepting self-proposals. The residencies for curators are usually coordinated with the artistic residencies. Location: Lisbon city center – between Bairro […]

An artist-in-residency within VIADELLAFUCINA16 Condominio-Museo. An experiment of urban regeneration and collective transformation through the power of art. Turin, Italy. CONTEXT viadellafucina16 was launched by Kaninchen-Haus in 2016, with the aim of giving life to the world’s first experiment of a Condominium-Museum.

The winning projects were selected by the inhabitants themselves (about 200 people of various nationalities, living in 53 apartments) with the support of our Scientific Committee of curators and insiders, on the basis of the artists’ ability to engage the community in the design and production of the artworks, to interpret the community’s desires and to activate new forms of sociality through a process of co-creation and collective care. “Condominium” is a Latin word formed […]
