Posted filed under.

artconnect berlin open call
ikono invites Berlin-based artists to take part in a year-long series of open calls, held in collaboration with Artconnect Berlin, to promote the visibility of the arts on a local and international scale.

Every other month in 2013, ikono and Artconnect Berlin will invite submissions of work from local artists. Two artworks will be selected from each open call and presented on our local and international media platforms throughout the following month.

Each call will focus on a specific artistic medium as a criterion for submission.

From December 3rd – January 14th, we are searching for submissions of sculptures from Berlin-based artists.

Details about presentation of selected work:

The two artworks selected from each call will be showcased in a short ikono film, which will be broadcasted throughout the following month on ikono’s two internationally viewed HDTV stations, ikonoTV and ikonoMENASA. The films will also be presented on Artconnect Berlin’s blog alongside interviews with the featured artists. At the end of 2013, ikono will produce a short retrospective film highlighting all selected works to conclude the series.

The entire collection of open call interviews and films will remain available as an archive on Artconnect Berlin for general public access.

How to submit:
