Call For Submissions
Curated by Rachel Dedman
August 5h-7th, 2016
Transart Triennale "The Imperceptible Self" Uferstudios, Berlin
As part of the Transart Triennale, curator Rachel Dedman is seeking submissions of written texts, in any language, for a research-driven exhibition exploring science fiction. The project is interested in the ways in which artists and writers are using the critical possibilities of sci-fi to address contemporary themes such as memory, identity, conflict, placehood and the self. Texts might deal with the iconography or ideology of science fiction's historical forms; with utopia and dystopia; with landscape and architecture; and with associated concerns of the future and time.
Texts can be fictive or non-fictive. Short-form responses, statements, stories or poems of 200-500 words are encouraged, but the call also accepts submissions of longer-form texts up to roughly 2000 words in length. As the exhibition will focus on science fiction in the Middle-East, the curator particularly welcomes writing in Arabic
Submissions Due: April 15th
