We have another open call for artists within the project “what’s the deal?”which relates to the special track “ “From Space to Place to Utopia”.

International artists are invited for residencies (1 to 3 months) during October, November and December 2014 to the Villa Waldberta, the international artist-residence of the City of Munich, Germany, to create utopian visions of selected urban spots: 3 different views on selected urban spots in Munich and in the partner cities Ljubljana, Amsterdam, Hallein/Salzburg, Bordeaux will be developed:

  • Space is the present state (reproduced by a photo)
  • Place is the transformation to spots made suitable to the needs of the scene focused on (skateboarders in Munich and Bordeaux, mural art / bikers in Ljubljana, Schmiede community in Hallein/Salzburg and designers in Amsterdam) (e.g. 3D work)
  • Utopia is the visionary view of artists on those spots (free choice of method and genre)

    5 to 7 triptychs are to be created and will be presented as an exhibition at the Urban Cultures Summit, the final event of WTD, in Munich in May/June 2015.

New deadline for application: June 15
