For Y: Harbour of Sorrow, we’re looking for artistic contributions that are not afraid of subjectivity; contributions that (for any possible reason) leave behind rational, aestheticized and conceptual, so-called objective, frameworks. We’re curious why those frameworks should be left behind but why not, we can as well just embrace the fact and demand no explanation. We’re interested in therapeutic (art)works, acts of individual or collective resistance, individual contributions, or in sharing the strategies of resilience. We’re looking for practices or works that acknowledge time and space, that use chaos, grief, melancholy or misunderstanding – practices that understand the function of all of those as well as their aesthetics and that use them as a foundation for (even temporary) harbour of sorrow. Deadline: 19. 6. 2022.
