  • ☠ Improprio - Networkers against intellectual property

  • Open Call talks "among other things" about freedom of speech and the sharing of knowledge. Yet the curator is saying that "Any sexist, racist, oppressive content will be destructurated", putting therefore in cause the same common sense he goes against.

  • description

    Few weeks ago the European Parliament approved the Copyright Directive, a law that impose taxes on content diffusion and set upload filters upfront, opposing thus the natural and free sharing of knowledge.

    This is not about ethics or morality: the old lobbyists have found a way to steal from the new social media ones' leftovers, we ain't gonna take sides on this long-beard no-beard-at-all unfair fight.

    If this becomes real, we'll have to pay to share networks (link tax, art.11) and someone or somewhat will judge if your uploads match heir "common sense" publishing criteria (upload filter, art.13).

    Internet freedom is at stake!

    While we all face those risks there are many that, self outcast from mainstream communities, share and edit their way on the solid and the ethereal ones .

    To the decadent-ism of whom's filtering and setting knowledge, we oppose a fluxus that is unstoppable, untaxed, unfiltered and uncensored. They just can't control everything.

    Copycats, collage artists, mash-uppers, fakes and plagiarism virtuoso's of all countries, unite! Let's celebrate the fusion of contents and the freedom of speech.

    Censorship is anathema to the Fluxus spirit. However, exhibited works cannot violate Canadian law. Fortunately, the laws protecting artistic freedom of expression are relatively strong in Canada. Basically, anything goes, except child pornography and hate speech. Hate speech includes, "advocating genocide", "publicly inciting hatred", and "promoting hatred".

    Given the history of persecution of sexual minorities, the curators are committed to including artworks that may depict or document manifestations of homophobia, provided that such works do not violate the law.

    It is illegal to produce, distribute, or possess child pornography in Canada, as such work deemed to be such by the curators, will be destroyed upon receipt.

    NOTICE: The curators reserve the right to refuse to exhibit and/or document any submission at their absolute and sole discretion.

    The day goes by,

    In the scent of new nets out of the sea.

    This island, this island,

    Pursuit of the birds soon.

    There are worlds, you can not think;

    Flowers open loudly;

    Get out of the smoke smoke from the soil.

    Seagulls, especially seagulls,

    Every single feather ...

    The day becomes blue, by myself;

    The day becomes sun by myself;

    Day is like crazy.

    Durante los últimos años, y coincidiendo con la llegada del correo electrónico y los canales cibernéticos, el mail art ha sido sentenciado a muerte en múltiples ocasiones.

    A partir de estas sentencias, y dado que no acaba de morir, pensamos que el Mausoleo de Morille podría ser un buen lugar para su enterramiento definitivo, confiando en la resurrección de las almas y el renacimiento posterior en la otra dimensión.

    La exposición previa al enterramiento tendrá un formato atípico, con actos rituales, festejos y romería, finalizando con la introducción de las obras en el objeto volante no identificado (de la fotografía) y traslado al cementerio de arte, Museo Mausoleo Morille, perteneciente a Red Museion, plataforma transfronteriza de Museos.

    Como acto final y previo al enterramiento se procederá, a través de conexiones del sistema UFO2x24, a agradecer a los habitantes de la galaxia , por los servicios prestados a través de la oficina postal interestelar y el sincero deseo de que en el futuro sigamos colaborando en la otra dimensión. ¡El Arte Postal ha muerto! ¡Viva el Arte Postal!

    The sea, at the same time that it nourishes man, animals and fishes, swallows swimmers, seafarers and migrants who venture into freedom.

    Human can be the one who creates life, but with the war, fights and choices, takes it back.

    Quinta da Cruz - Centro de Arte Contemporânea is located in Viseu, Portugal, and is a cultural space oriented to the exhibition of contemporary art and to the development of artistic practices. It’s a space destined to public enjoyment, culture and leisure, inserted in a green space of excellence and a remarkable biodiversity.

    In 2019, Viseu assumed the motto of “National Destination of Gastronomy” and that is why, for this challenge, the theme "Food, Wine & Culture" was selected.

    We launch an invitation to artists and all interested in MailArt to send their works, through the Postal Service, and join the 2nd edition of this event. Only works received through traditional mail will be displayed. We look forward for your drawings, collages, stamps and visual poetry, among others, at Quinta da Cruz!

    …. a variation on previous work, in which the newly created work has a meaning that is antagonistic or antithetical to the original. The original media work that is détourned is somewhat familiar to the target audience, so that it can appreciate the opposition of the new message.

  • description

    A BOOK ABOUT DEATH is an open, unbound book produced by artists worldwide. Artists are invited to create a “page” in the form of a postcard about death– any aspect about death. Works can be of any design, personal or conceptual, color or black and white.

    The original work about death stays with you, the artist. The 500 postcards produced from the work is for the exhibition, and are sent to the museum.

    Artists can include any information about themselves on the cards, front or back. There are no age limits, no areas or ideas that are prohibited. The exhibition organizers only ask that you submit good work, worthy of an interesting and exciting page in this global book.

    A BOOK ABOUT DEATH takes its inspiration from the late, underground American artist Ray Johnson (1927 - 1995). Ray Johnson’s unbound “book” of the same title was mailed to his New York Correspondence School “students” and included pages in his idiosyncratic style that were funny, sad and ironic “one-page essays” on death. With the A BOOK ABOUT DEATH project, artists are invited to plunge into subject in creating their own pages that score the dramatic final dance of death.

    Each artist 's contribution will be displayed at the Islip Art Museum in New York. Visitors will be free to take cards and create their own book about death. As the cards are removed, the exhibition will disappear.


    HOW TO SUBMIT

    1. Produce an artwork about death. Make 500 postcards and mail the package to Islip Art Museum. All submissions will be accepted if they arrive in time. Artists may produce more than one card design if they wish.


    2. Once images are produced, a light-weight jpg should be e-mailed to LUANN PALAZZO, along with the artist’s name, country of origin, and URL (artist web site address) for publication on the blog. This will allow the organizers to archive the works and artist details. Other artists will also be able to visit the exhibition in progress.


    You can either produce the cards yourself or upload the file to any number of printers for delivery to the museum. You, as the artist are in complete control of your artwork and cards.

    The organizers will not collect cards for the artists. We ask that those visiting the museum only take one set per person, leaving enough for others.

    Institutions who wish to have a complete book will have to come to the museum space and get their own pages/cards or assign someone to do it for them. The organizers are not responsible for the cards, but will see to it that all cards received are displayed and available to visitors. The organizers are not responsible for the return of any remaining cards; should there be any remaining cards, these will become part of the Islip Art Museum archives.

    We are parts of the same great body.

    Nature created us from the same source and to the same end.

    She imbued us with mutual affection and sociability, she taught us to be fair and just, to suffer injury rather than to inflict it.

    She bid us extend our hands to all in need of help

    (Publius Terentius Afer, 190/185 B.C. -159 B.C.)

    As part of the reopening of the Atelier d'Akané and in the framework of the Open Days of Artists Workshops of Pas de Calais in October 2019, we propose an exhibition of letters in Postal Art.

    These letters will be yours :) It's your turn to write to us in any form whatsoever. You will create the exhibition :)

    What matters is the envelope that can take the most diverse and original forms :)

    You do not have to write a text, or a word . It's really the "container" that counts :). But of course the texts will be read with great pleasure.

  • description

    At this 2019’s edition, the Amanita Bunker exhibition returns to the streets of this small village reinforcing the artistic bombings of the previous 2018's edition. Authors are invited to create artwork regarding the requested theme and join the yearly Mushroom Festival.

    Amanita Bunker, wears now robes of a fictional political party. The Amanites manifest themselves and demand distinction and promise improvements on the village. In the form of stickers, pins, posters, slogans, political propaganda and other equally ridiculous but serious paraphernalia ... artists are invited to participate by sending works that will eventually be scattered through the streets in the form of propaganda.

    "Fires continue to plague the country and our memory is short. When we take down forests or take other actions that can deplete fungal populations, this does not only affect fungi - it ultimately affects Homo sapiens as well. Fungi is an ignored realm, but this kingdom is more important than many of us imagine." -- Nicholas Money
