OPEN CALL „Zaklepane / Ground Rules” | Generator Malta, Malta Festival Poznań 2021 POLAND

Generator Malta is the curatorial programme of the Malta Festival Poznań, a theme related to human rights, urbanization, migration and nature, promoting social empathy, dialogue and value-creating art. For several years, a part of the program is invented in the form of an open competition for the artistic community.

We invite visual and performance artists, dancers, researchers, activists to take part in the recruitment "Zaklepane / Ground Rules" - we are waiting for ideas for perfomative, site-specific, sound, animation, installation, interventions or workshops on reflection on property rights, law to land/ground and use of its resources. In the Wieniawski Park in Poznań, the "fortress of the claim" objects, designed by Iwo Borkowicz and Ola Korbańska (iwola), will be built, where the final presentations of the winning projects will take place. The object will be built from the dug and will be formed in the ground in the same place.

Every day a different resident will be given his piece of independent land for 48 hours. Selected activities will become part of the Malta Generator program. The budget of one project is PLN 4,500 gross. The deadline for submitting applications is April 9, and a four-person jury will select the winners on April 13. Details in the open call regulations and on the website

Like children playing Scattergories– I cut out a piece of earth with a knife, an area in a public park, proclaiming it my temporary property.
I appropriate the surface: a piece of the Earth’s crust, a city, a park plot based on a local zoning plan. I mark the boundaries of the territory on a map.
I seize the space above it – the void to be defined and filled, the arena for potential events. All goods I find in the area, from a hundred-year-old trees to bottle caps and butt-ends.
The underground is mine, along with all living organisms, billions of geobionts and geophiles. I rule natural resources, elements of inanimate nature, reaching to the very core.
I declare the independence standing on the earth formed with human hands. I build a fortress from it.

We would like to invite artists, performers, artivists, animators, researchers to submit projects deliberating on the issue of ownership, the right to the ground and exploiting its resources. Every day for 48 hours, one of the residents will take into possession a fortress in Wieniawski Park in Poznań (see the sketch:, designed by Iwo Borkowicz and Ola Korbańska (iwola) who were invited by Malta Festival Poznań 2021. We will pay particular attention to the projects of those persons whose dwo-day residency will be preceded by process activities, such as workshops, working with the local communities or other groups, artistic investigation, a series of field or internet activities, a discussion or an intervention.

The projects will be included in the programme of Generator Malta and will be produced as part of Malta Festival Poznań 2021.

recruitment: 17.03-9.04

REAKTOR Potenziale | Call for Concepts

The REAKTOR’s cross-disciplinary programme features works that are imbued with the spirit of the times. Indeed, what is still considered experimental today may well one day be perceived as timelessly permanent. That is particularly true of contemporary art. The REAKTOR’s call for concepts is designed to seek out that very potential in the visual arts, hence the title Potenziale. Particular emphasis is to be placed on space-defining art for the REAKTOR’s architectural core, i.e. its main hall.

The chosen artists will be invited to flesh out and implement their submitted concept as part of a one week’s residency in summer 2021 and then showcase it to the public as part of an exhibition in the second half of October 2021.

The application is a single-stage process. A description, sketches, and an enclosed portfolio of earlier works are sufficient. The REAKTOR team will be on hand to assist with the finalisation and support the implementation. A budget of up to EUR 3,500.00 is available for the exhibition production, together with practical assistance from the REAKTOR’s technical team.

Brazilian Platform for Digital Arts Launches Call for Artists from around the World


All works must belong to any form of net art or digital art: cyber art, algorithmic art, code art, generative art, glitch art, machine learning, deep fake and other forms of artificial intelligence, trans-media installation, digital sculpture, 2D and 3D animation, game art, holograms, trans-media performance, virtual communities, crypto art, art apps, immersive art (AR, VR, and MR), filters, animated GIF, meme, boomerang, hacker art, cyber art, digital painting, digital photography, digital poetry, bio-art, sound art, pixel art and software art, to mention but a few.


"The open call seeks to map and highlight the internationally emerging digital art scene as a result of the all- pervasive Internet-based digital reality, and show the influence new technologies are having on art and art-making, creating new languages, behaviors and concepts,” says Araña.



New Time


The open call for artists highlights the start of a new phase of Homeostasis. During the first quarter of this year, the platform went through a phase of reformulation and, from April 22 onward, it will present Homeostasis Lab - New Time, a project made possible with the help of the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism, the Special Secretary of Culture, the Government of the State of São Paulo, through the Secretary of Culture and Creative Economy, idealized and organized by Phi Projetos and UGI Projetos Culturais.


Goal of the Lab’s creators, Araña and Brandão, is to create and offer the public a space for critical reflection, diffusion, and promotion of contemporary digital art.


"In the beginning of the 21st century, digital culture emerged in a way that encompasses all areas of knowledge and as such intensely influences contemporary art practices,” says Julia Borges Araña. “With the increased access to digital media and the Internet, unusual and multicultural connections occur all the time, and changes in behavior due to the use of new technologies raise questions never before raised. Homeostasis Lab intends to be both a platform and catalyst for such connections and questioning.”


Homeostasis will bring together eight original exhibitions signed for by Brazilian curators Flávio Carvalho, Gabriel Menotti, Guilherme Teixeira, Luciana de Paula Santos, Mari Nagem, Paloma Oliveira, Pedro Caetano and Rudá Cabral.


Based on research in the ethereal territory of the internet, each of them was invited to create an authorial show focusing on the impact of digital media on the poetry and aesthetics of contemporary art.


The program furthermore features free online meetings with thinkers and artists active within the domain of digital art and culture in order to debate issues interconnecting visual arts with the field of science and new technologies. The conversations that arise are like an extension of the curatorship in order to promote critical, theoretical thinking.


The full program will be released soon.






About Homeostasis Lab


Created in 2013 by Brazilian curators Julia Borges Araña and Guilherme Brandão, Homeostasis Lab is a virtual platform dedicated to mapping, cataloging and exhibiting digital art on the internet, as well as offering a space for research, debate and reflection on the subject.


The Lab is an ongoing database run by a collaborative open-system network of artists, programmers, curators and researchers from all over the world. It offers a current and ongoing reflection on behaviors and concepts arising from the relationship between mankind and technology, and their impact on aesthetics, culture, and society.


Currently, the platform is home to over 580 artists of various nationalities and generations, including Addie Wagenknecht, Alfredo Salazar-Caro, DC Spensley, Fred Forest, François Quévillon, Giselle Beiguelman, Martina Menegon, Owen Mundy, Robert Lisek, Sabato Visconti, Sandrine Deumier, and Sandra Araújo.


First as a pavilion within The Wrong Biennale, an international festival of digital art and culture, and later as an independent entity, the Lab was born from Araña and Brandão's desire to create a catalyst space for digital art, a collective aesthetic experience highlighting hybrid cultures, and the development, and integration of new languages in contemporary art practices. In 2017, Homeostasis Lab organized the exhibition Homeostasis @ The Wrong, a collective show at the Centro Cultural São Paulo that integrated the III The Wrong Biennale and brought together such names as Anaísa Franco, Carla Gannis, Clement Valla, Jakob Steensen, Lorna Mills, Modular Dreams, Olafur Eliasson and Salvatore Iaconesi.




Chamada aberta para 'Homeostasis Lab - New Time'

Período: de 20 de março a 20 de abril

Expressions of Gender Equity

It is complex and it is messy. The phrase “gender equity/inequity” can bring out so many different types of emotions. Advocating for gender equity is no doubt a challenging and, at times, an exhausting task.


While it can be awkward, sharing how we feel in this space is important so we can empower one another in our quest of achieving a gender equitable future.


For this project, we have created 8 scenarios to explore gender equity/inequity. These scenarios are based on real-life experiences and cover various types of emotions.


If you are a creative soul (or if you want to be one), you are invited to interpret these messy, sticky emotions with us. Whether be it a digital drawing, sketch, poem, sculpture, song, story or video, however you express yourself creatively, we would love to see/hear it.


Please visit the art project website to learn more. Submissions are open until 23 May 2021.
