OPEN CALL STWST48x6 MORE LESS


ANNUAL CLAIM 2020: In the year 2020, STWST has developed the annual theme for the disproportionately tilted worlds or excess and scarcity: STWST 2020 MORE VS LESS

And meanwhile in the Sars-CoV-2-year: With the alternately counted combatants MORE VS LESS we ask in 2020 relevant questions about more-or-less situations, the non-equal areas, the counter-validity zones and the non-zero-sum games of the future.

STWST 2020 MORE VS LESS will be included as a theme in the STWST projects during the year from art to club and media - more or less. The theme is found as a background in the theory and practice tracks of STWST art production - with regard to the constant artistic thematization of entropy and this year as a thematization of other metabolic and/or autophagy processes.

MORE VS LESS is, however an access which is a permanent challenge in the extraordinary productivity of the house STWST. This means: The output of STWST, which could and can be managed with a small staff, has been extraordinary in the last years - and still is.

STWST 2020 MORE VS LESS. More vs Less to Come.

MORE VS LESS will be included in the art show format STWST48 in September.

OPEN CALL STWST48x6 MORE LESS

OPEN CALL - STWST48x6 MORE LESS
11-13th Sept 2020


In the year 2020, STWST has developed the STWST48 theme for the disproportionately tilted worlds or excess and scarcity: STWST48x6 MORE LESS.

And meanwhile arrived in the Sars-CoV-2-year: With MORE and LESS we ask relevant questions about more-or-less situations, the non-equality areas, the counter-validity zones and the non-zero-sum games of the future.


MORE

Against the background of screaming imbalances, distribution struggles, scarcity of resources, ecological barriers, social issues, questions of access, fears of the future, attempts at redistribution, visions of self-restraint, precarious awareness, egalitarianism, hyper-progress, network fantasies, total surveillance, a scenery of the many against the few; the battle of avant-garde, critical mass and centre-extremists. In front of all these apparent and actual questions of more or less, we want to use STWST48x6 MORE LESS to focus on processes and projects that make a difference.

LESS

With processes and projects that make the difference, we want to take a look at the zones of art, nature, information, movement and sound. In doing so, we want to focus primarily on other networks, aesthetic strategies, autonomous policies and alternative metabolites that are driven by questions of more or less - and, above all, driven by OTHER, as a general other way of thinking. We are concerned with the individual and the many in larger systems and we are concerned with rational and irrational approaches to the all and nothing, in larger contexts of world, society and cosmos. Nothing less, and vice versa, in all directions.


SEND

Stadtwerkstatt is looking for local and international artists and critical producers of all fields, who can submit projects that are still in the process of development, but also finished projects.
