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 […]

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.

with Andrew Helton Spring 2021 | Virtual Program | 3/15/2021 – 4/24/2021 http://www.artslettersandnumbers.com/the-earth-of-part-two-a-moment-is-a-reckoning Why reelaborate today a concept of the archive? In a single configuration, equally technical and political, ethical and juridical?…No one ever renounces—and this is the unconscious itself—the appropriation of power over the document, over its detention, retention or its interpretation. -Jacques Derrida Reports that say something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know. -Donald Rumsfeld (on alleged weapons of mass destruction in Iraq) A moment is a rupture. It is a point at which the machinery (whether it’s time, domestic life, politics, civil obedience, work, health, etc.) we are all a part of breaks. Something becomes an object at the moment of rupture, when it is no longer (however briefly) a part of the machine. This is why moments become so important to us. It is a kind of freedom. A moment is a chance to feel as […]
OPEN CALL / Video Art + Video Documentation FREE entry Paadmaan Video Event is an international periodical video event born in Tehran, Iran, seeking to explore video documentations of recent contemporary works of art (e.g. installation, performance, new media) and Video Art in general. Organized by Paadmaan Projects, the Video Event considers ‘video’ as its central theme. The event emphasizes on video in the context of the art documentation, while addressing the challenges embedded within the so-called ‘documentation’ of contemporary art projects. Priority is given to works of art that portray these kinds of challenges, from the lens of the artist with attention to the artistic decisions made during the process of the documentation. The archival project is done in collaboration with itinerant venues to create an alternative platform for holding a collective discourse to amplify already-existing interdisciplinary art content, and to discuss reviewing documentation of art projects in terms of representation [in addition to the video screenings]. Sections: -Video documentation – Video Art Apply here: https://filmfreeway.com/PaadmaanVideoEvent Event dates: 19-24 November 2021
After a very successful first season, we are pleased to announce the second round of the Pilot Light Residency at Arts Letters & Numbers that will run until the end of May. The Pilot Light Residency was initially conceived as an antidote to the many restrictions that prevented us from running our usual programs as well as from the recognition that after many months in isolation, artists were in need of a change in context to connect to their creative endeavors. Today, we continue our efforts to provide creators with a space to work in while abstaining from scheduled programs, community events, communal dinners etc. Given our expansive quarantine procedure upon arrival, as well as, protocols for social distancing during the stay we are extending the residency program so as to accommodate as many artists as possible in the safest way possible. Participating artists in this program will be offered private accommodation and studio space for a reduced price of $250 a week. During this time each person will be fully independent, yet co-exist in shared spaces. PRIORITY At the moment, this program will only be offered to artists currently located within the US, who can arrive to ALN without […]

What is the relationship of a body with the moving image? How does culture inscribe meaning into bodies? Does our body connect us to the world or separates us from it? Have we overcome the body taboos? When is our body an instrument of knowledge, […]

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 […]
