Contamination and maybe even more
"Contamination and maybe even more” is a research-based project between the gallery Fonderia 20.9 in Verona and the artist-initiative The Balcony in The Hague, which includes a residency and an exhibition.
The project is intended as a collaboration between the three organizing artists and two artists selected through this Open Call.The aim is to set up a platform for ongoing collaborations between the participants, both in Italy and the Netherlands.
The participants are invited to critically reflect on the idea of contamination andconsumption of contemporary images in our everyday social, political and artistic environment.
The hybridization in contemporary art, politics and social devices poses the question ofhow we discriminate between the “fluidity” of neoliberal regimes and the fragmented, yet resistant strategies of collage and appropriation.This is mirrored in particular in the field ofimages, posing the question of their usage and validity in late capitalist societies.
For this particular residency two artists will be selected.
Artists working with any medium are welcome to apply.
The exchange will lead to a collective exhibition in the exhibition space of Fonderia 20.9 (Verona, Italy).
