balkan black box 2007: The Cathedral and the Bazaar
Production of Culture in Transitional Settings - CALL FOR PROPOSALS
balkan black box is a Berlin based festival featuring current works of visual, performing and fine artists from South East Europe. The festival has been taking place since 1999, each year with a different discoursive theme.
The festival features a wide range of events in film, music, exhibition, literature, performance and debate. 2007’s topic "cathedral/bazaar" can (but doesn’t have to) be implemented within all these sections or as an overall interdisciplinary event.
The core programme of balkan black box 2007 will take place at a central festival location, while a number of smaller events will happen decentrally in provisional market-like settings across Berlin.
To develop the festival programme and design in line with the theme we are soliciting proposals!
They can have any of the following formats: - proposing an artistic presentation or discoursive event relevant to the theme, - curating a sub-program of the festival (series of films / literary event / exhibition), - proposing individual artists which can contribute works relevant to the theme, - proposing artists in residence interested to co-operatively develop the spatial and social design concept for the festival.
Proposals can have draft format (idea scetch) and should reach us in written, oral or graphic form.
Selected contributions will be included in the funding applications for the festival. Please keep in mind that balkan black box is a rather low-budget festival, as will be the 2007 edition.
The amount available for production costs will be very limited. Balkan black box would be delighted to meet with prospective partners during the "Lost Highway Expedition" covering Ljubljana, Zagreb, Belgrade, Skopje, Tirana and Sarajevo throughout August 2006.
