Zukunftsvisionen - Festival of Contemporary Art
Entry Deadline: Mar. 19
ZUKUNFTSVISIONEN2019 – Festival of Contemporary Arts is looking for participating artists!
Application period: 18th Jan – 19th Mar 2019
Since 2007 the ZUKUNFTSVISIONEN Festival (ZuVi) has been established at the Polish-German border in the town of Görlitz. Each year, it is organised by a team of dedicated, creative and courageous volunteers. The festival has intentionally picked the issue of local vacancies as its central topic and is hence annually being held in a vacant building, to point out the potential hiding in abandoned buildings. It offers a platform for regional as well as international artists of the contemporary arts scene. This call for entries is directed at established as well as upcoming artists still at the beginning of their careers. During the festival week, the exhibition is framed by a versatile program of side events. We are aiming to create a place of encounter, a place free of prejudice, for creative production and multicultural exchange.
Motto „Threadless“ (german: „FadenLos“)
This year’s ZUKUNFTSVISIONEN (Future Visions) centres on the motto “Threadless”. The play on words creates a discourse on coincidence, conscious decisions and the random events that determine our fate and future. “How do we imagine our lives? What paths should we persue?” are incredibly difficult questions to answer. It is impossible to know how our decisions will affect us.

The jury meeting will be from the 22th – 24th Mar 2019.

CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION
Everyone can apply – individual artists, art collectives and groups of artists as well. Not only established, also aspiring artists from the surroundings of Görlitz as well as international.
