Date: 27 Feb 2010
Website: http://www.electrohype.org
Location: international

Outline:

Due to the few entries to the 3 Volt Public Art project we have extended the deadline to February 28th. We have also managed to free some funding from another project so we can increase the artist honorarium to 3000 SEK (approximately 300 Euro).

Applications are invited of project proposals for outdoor electronic art pieces to be located in the central parts of the city of Malm”, Sweden. The goal is that artworks should be totally autonomous and be able to be left alone without the need of supply of electric power or any form of regular maintenance. Therefore each work should be able to run of the power generated from the solar panel pack found in a ´standard” garden solar panel lamp.

Deadline February 27th, 2010

The Silent Village

12:00 am in Exhibition by bloc

Date: 16 Jan – 27 Feb 2010
Website: http://www.ffotogallery.org/
Location: wales

Outline:

On June 10th 1942, the Czechoslovakian village of Lidice was obliterated by the Nazis. In total, 340 villagers were murdered, either by firing squads or later in concentration camps. Throughout the West, news of the atrocity was met with outrage that inspired various acts of commemoration including poems, novels, symphonies and films. Within weeks of the Lidice tragedy, work had begun on translating those events into a film supported by the Ministry of Information, London, and made in South Wales. In September 1942, a Crown Film Unit crew arrived in the Upper Swansea Valley at the small village of Cwmg‹edd, close to the town of Ystradgynlais. Under the supervision of the artist, poet and filmmaker Humphrey Jennings, they set out to make a short film that recreated the fate of Lidice. The Silent Village (1943) both memorialises a recent tragedy, and alludes to future scenarios involving loss of liberty and ultimately death.

This exhibition and accompanying publications examine from a new perspective the distinctive relations of time and place that defined Humphrey Jennings’ original film. The film has provided contemporary artists and writers with an opportunity to reflect on the circumstances that brought it into being and some of the issues it raises. The artists Paolo Ventura and Peter Finnemore, the writer Rachel Trezise and the film historian David Berry, offer their response to a film that is both a reconstruction of the Lidice atrocity and a film about Welsh life in the early 1940s.

Seven Years of tank.tv

12:00 am in Events by bloc

Website: http://www.furtherfield.org/displayreview.php?review_id=373
Location: online

Outline:

Seven years ago, or about two years before the invention of youtube, the editors of Tank Magazine saw the possibility of an internet platform dedicated to video art. Their response was tank.tv, an Internet site that is part moving image archive, part online gallery, and part cutting edge video art exhibition.

`The sole focus is on the work,` explains curator and creative director Laure Prouvost, who has been with the site since its beginning. Prouvost describes tank.tv as a completely open endeavor, one that supports experimentation by accepting submissions and curatorial proposals throughout the year: `We have worked to make tank.tv a collaborative platform over time and we`re still looking for ways to open our programme as much as possible.`
