Call for Entries: Electrohype 2008

Filed under: Call For Entries — Torrey Nommesen @ 12:23 am


The fifth biennial for computer based and technological art in Malmö Konsthall from November 2008 to January 2009

Deadline: April 18th 2008 – material sent via ordinary mail should be postmarked by this date.
You will find a link to online and PDF application forms further down on this page, but please read the information carefully first.

Electrohype 2008 will be the fifth biennial for computer-based art in Sweden. Electrohype is pleased to announce this call for entries for the exhibition that will be a follow up to the previous large Electrohype exhibitions in 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2006.

The exhibition will for the second time take place at Malmö Konsthall (also 2004). The duration of the biennial will be from mid November 2008 to beginning of January 2009. Malmö Konsthall was opened in 1975 and is one Europe’s largest and most flexible exhibition halls for contemporary art. The annual number of visitors are approximately 200 000.

The exhibition will present works by 5 – 8 artists or artist groups. To give the exhibition a broad perspective we are looking for Nordic as well as international artists.

Important dates
Deadline for this call for entries April 18th 2008
Exhibition opening mid November 2008
Exhibition closing beginning of January 2009
Exact date will soon be announced.

What kind of art are we looking for?
Electrohype has since the start in 1999 focused on what we choose to call computer based art. Art that runs of computers and utilizes the capacity of the computer to mix various media, allow interaction with the audience, or machines interacting with each others etc. in other words art that can not be transferred to “traditional” linear media. This might seem as a narrow approach but we have discovered that it gives us a better focus on a genre that in no way is narrow.

We are not looking for “straight” video art (even if it is edited on a computer) or still images rendered on computers and other material that refers to more “traditional” media forms. Forms were the traditional tools have been replaced with computers and software.

Curators for the biennial are Anna Kindvall and Lars Gustav Midbøe.

You can submit with our online form or download the application form as PDF-file. You have to use one of these two forms to submit to our call.

NOTE: Please do NOT send documentation material as attachments via e-mail. Put your material online and send us the download URL or ftp address, or send us a CD or similar in the mail. Do NOT send 8 pages CVs and only complement with enclosures if it is necessary.

Please read the form and follow the guidelines. We receive a large amount of proposals and all of them are reviewed closely. To be able to do this we ask you to follow the structure in the application form and the topics mentioned above.

Due to a limited budget we will encourage everyone submitting material to look for possibilities for local funding to help cover costs for transport, travel and rent of technical equipment. This is not a requirement but a request; external funding can help us during the financial planning. The quality of the artwork will always be the determining element.

Electrohype covers all expenses, within reasonable limits, and also pays an artist honorarium to participating artists. Electrohype does not support development and production of unfinished artworks.

In previous exhibitions we have managed to keep a high level both in artistic content and exhibition design, even on a modest budget. It is therefore very important for us to avoid unpleasant surprises, so please keep this in mind when filling out the various posts in the form, especially when it comes to technical requirements, transport weight etc.

We are looking forward to see new and interesting works of art.

Please feel free to contact Electrohype if you have any questions or need additional information
