“Project Lazaretta: Digital Stories from the Old and the New World”
Invitation to Artists: Lazaretta of Syros and Lazaretta of Corfu are two of the most important buildings of their kind in the Mediterranean, old exile buildings with love, fear and death stories to inspire contemporary digital artists.
The past is influenced by the current global pandemic, and is transformed into the present through contemporary digital art and the experiences of the artists themselves.
CulturePolis, in cooperation with Eye’s Walk Digital Art Festival, launched “Project Lazaretta,” supported by the Greek Ministry of Culture and Sports with CulturePolis as the beneficiary and Cinesthesia (founder of Eyes’ Walk Digital Festival) as the artistic collaborator.
Submission deadline 20th December 2020, at email@example.com

Belarus Free Theatre (BFT) brings art onto the streets of Minsk in support of the pro-democracy movement in Belarus. Brave citizens of Belarus have been beaten and jailed, including BFT members, but the spirit of pro-democracy protests is unyielding. Every night, despite the sub-zero temperature, people gather in their courtyards to share news and meals, as well as a sense of unity. In support of the movement and as a symbol of solidarity, BFT brings theatre into courtyards, showing extracts from BFT’s best shows and leading post-show discussions that help to preserve the spark of resistance against the brutal force of the authoritarian regime. The courtyard actions and events have become a prime example of direct-democracy in Belarus.
Open call for a 3-month curatorial research residency in Madrid and Barcelona addressed to curators and researchers, either Spanish or living in Spain. This fully funded three-month curatorial research residency will take place from January to March 2021.
Encura is a research residency program that aims to promote, expand and problematize curatorial research processes by bringing the artistic contexts of Barcelona and Madrid closer together, as well as encouraging and enabling curatorial outcomes that do not result in conventional exhibition projects.
Through this video-essay focused on the city of Madrid, we want to defend the importance of building non-adult-centered participation and decision mechanisms within the cultural spaces that we share. During the Urban Exploration of Madrid, we have designed a collective diagram of cultural policies for, by and with childhood.
After opening a new venue in northeast Germany in October, only to immediately close down again, we hosted our very first no-audience show. A showcase with the up-and-coming jazz/triphop label Fox Lane Music. we turned it into a radio show, broadcast by the local independent channel radio 98eins via air and YouTube.
We discussed human rights and arts, borders and empty promises of solidarity and producing music in times of digital abundance.
While we bitterly miss having an audience in the venue, it was still so much more than nothing. Thanks to everyone involved!
In order to survive culturally, we spontaneously organise exhibitions in the wardrobe–“expositions dans le placard” at MottAttoM. We believe wardrobe exhibitions don’t fall under recent restrictions. For the moment, we allow a maximum of five visitors at a time and remain flexible. Each exhibition lasts one day.
This is great fun and a nicely restricted way of staying in touch with the meaning of our work. If other artists in the TEH network are interested in joining, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
