<nettime-ann> Reminder: 2008 / 2009 Call for Submissions -- Video Pool Media Arts Centre

... just a reminder that our deadline is fast approaching

Video Pool Media Arts Centre
2008 / 2009 Call for Submissions

Theme: Resistance 
Deadline: *** Friday, March 21, 2008 ***

Resistance is a movement, a position, an attitude, and a measure. It is an
individual or collective response. It can be political, or it can relate to
physical properties of the known universe. It concerns citizens. It concerns
artists. It concerns that which is local as well as that which is global. It
is about forces, agency, strategy, play, and subversion. It is an argument.
It seeks change, or it fights to stay the same. It mobilizes. It is
unconscious. It is a side effect. It is intentional and affirmative.

Video Pool invites submissions pertaining to the theme Resistance for the
2008/09 programming season. We encourage projects involving: 

• New media
• Experimental electronics
• Installation (with media components)
• Audio art
• Curatorial packages (with media components)

*** Video Pool is particularly interested in projects that intervene in
public space or otherwise make use of non-traditional exhibition settings.

Video Pool’s 2008/09 programming season will include two programs
specifically focused on new media performance and single channel film and
video that resist conventional thinking and/or assumptions about what
constitute video and new media art practices, and possibly the environs
within which they take are expected to place.

Submission Requirements: 

**** Please note that due to funding requirements, primary consideration
will be given to Canadian citizens.

All Submissions Must Include:
1. Artist/curator CV including current contact information (mailing address,
telephone number, and e-mail address)

5. Exhibition history of each project, including a description of contexts

participate in the screening/exhibition
