Aarhus – Berlin – Brussels – Helsinki – Istanbul – Linz – Liverpool – Marseille – Madrid – Montréal – Riga – Vienna – Zagreb
Artist’s Call for Proposal for the Connecting Cities Network
The European Urban Media Network of Connecting Cities ( is calling for artist’s work for the the first curatorial topic: the Networked City 2013. The project is initiated by Public Art Lab in co-operation with Ars Electronica GmbH Linz, BIS Body Process Arts Association Istanbul, FACT Liverpool, iMAL Brussels, m-cult Helsinki, Medialab Prado Madrid, Media Architecture Institute Wien, Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, Riga 2014, Videospread Marseille, in association with the University of Aarhus, Marseille-Provence 2013 and MUTEK Montréal and funded by the Culture Programme of the European Union.
The network’s aim is to create an infrastructure of urban media facades for circulating artistic and socio-cultural content throughout the whole of Europe and beyond within the 4-years artistic research programme.
In 2013 the Connecting Cities Network will discuss the question of how urban media facades can become a catalyst for shared encounters in an identity-building temporary field of interaction across the borders of time and distance. The curators of the Connecting Cities Network will select several artist projects for the Networked City 2013. These projects will be presented on the urban media facades of the participating cities and open live windows to the cities. The main challenge of Networked City will be to identify contents with relevance on an international level and to develop technology standards by comparing the different local and national circumstances and production conditions.
- Application deadline: November 2nd, 2012
- Curators selection deadline: November 17, 2012
- Artist work production will finish by April, 2013
- Selected artist’s work will be shown and circulated within live events between May and November 2013.
The works should at best
• be conceived of one (or more) of the technology media (urban screens. media facades, mobile screens, projections, etc.)
• operate on open source / simple systems
• come with an outline of its technical specifications in order to allow it’s easy Europe-wide adaptation
• be quickly to build up and remove – adaption time should be efficient (compared to the time the installation is running)
