Bauhaus of the Seas Sails / Open Call
Deadline May 14, 2024
Centro de Arte Moderna Gulbenkian

CAM is the cultural partner for the implementation of three “Bauhaus of the Seas Sails” innovative projects in Portugal. Calls are open until 14th May for three artistic residencies, to be developed in 2024.

The Bauhaus of the Seas was first presented in 2020 as a manifesto that answered to the challenge of the New European Bauhaus, a creative initiative that connects the European Green Deal to people’s living spaces and experiences, guided by the values of sustainability, inclusion and creativity.

[ . . . ]

The Bauhaus of the Seas Sails project (2023-2025) was officially launched in Lisbon in 2023 under the coordination of the Interactive Technologies Institute of the University of Lisbon’s Instituto Superior Técnico. It’s formed by a consortium encompassing eighteen academic, cultural and territorial partners located in seven European cities (Malmö, Venice, Genova, Lisbon, Oeiras, Hamburg, Rotterdam). Its scope is interdisciplinary, intergenerational and interspecies and it aims to respond to social and environmental challenges, through a process of co-design.

With this goal in mind, there were proposals created for the implementation of demonstrator pilot projects in each region of this consortium. It’s intended that, in the future, these can be applied to other cities, countries and continents, adapting them to the scale of each territory. In Portugal, in a partnership between CAM – Centro de Arte Moderna Gulbenkian, Instituto Superior Técnico and the municipalities of Oeiras and Lisbon, the projects Ocean Literacy, Blue Makerspace, and Regenerative Menu are being developed with the aim of bringing a cross disciplinary understanding on how we can contribute to a more conscientious sustainable future. These will result in a public programme of activities, multidisciplinary residencies, and exhibitions across cultural spaces.

Artpil periodically publishes submitted announcements of outside opportunities we do not administer. We recommend researching further prior to submitting, especially if entry fees are required.
  • Yuwei Tu: Wherever Your Mother’s Shadow Falls
    May 4 – Jun 15, 2024
    Rusha & Co.
    Los Angeles, USA

    Rusha & Co. is pleased to announce Yuwei Tu: Wherever Your Mother’s Shadow Falls, the inaugural solo exhibition by the artist. Drawing inspiration from Ocean Vuong’s poem of the same title, this presentation of works echoes similar themes, exploring the complexities of self and felt emotion. Yuwei’s work examines themes of love, loss, and solitude. Wherever Your Mother’s Shadow Falls is an ode to maternal relationships, an introspection of consciousness and a slow contemplation of self-acceptance. (more…)

  • Georg Kussmann: FRG

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)

  • Adraint Khadafhi Bereal: The Black Yearbook
    4 Color Books / Penguin Random House

    When photographer Adraint Bereal graduated from the University of Texas, he self-published an impressive volume of portraits, personal statements, and interviews that explored UT’s campus culture and offered an intimate look at the lives of Black students matriculating within a majority white space. Bereal’s work was inspired by his first photo exhibition at the George Washington Carver Museum in Austin, entitled 1.7, that unearthed the experiences of the 925 Black men that made up just 1.7% of UT’s total 52,000 student body.

  • Ian Waelder: Here not today
    Apr 18 – Jun 9, 2024
    Super Super Markt
    Berlin, Germany

    I. Language

    We could say that this exhibition begins with the artist’s daily walk to buy the newspaper at a kiosk. In his book The Practice of Everyday Life, Michel de Certeau describes the city as a text shaped by the people who walk in it daily. A vast text we write with our steps but cannot read – “the networks of these moving, intersecting writings compose a manifold story that has neither author nor spectator (more…)
