Disclaimer: this call contains borderline dangerous/ambiguous humour. Watch out!

Thanks to our cooperation with Creative Industry Košice, we can be part of BORDERLINE OFFENSIVE – LAUGHING IN THE FACE OF FEAR (2017-2020), a partnership of 12 countries in Europe and the Middle East, using humour and art to mediate intercultural dialogue and tackle societal challenges as framed by the so-called xenophobia/populism/migrant crisis. Applying artists are invited to join us in a 3-year artistic research & societal development process:

April-August 2018

• Be part of an artistic residency for 10 working days, with 3 other artists;
• In Sweden, Serbia, Netherlands, Bulgaria or Slovakia (as host or guest);
• Free time for research, creation and inspiration;

As part of residency programme:

• Design artistic workshops instigating dialogue between migrant/refugee and host communities (2 days)
• Peer-learning with local artistic community/public (1 day);
• Conceive an artwork in preferred discipline/genre, imbued with humor aesthetics’ elements (gallow’s humor, parody, satire, sarcasm, irony, slapstick, etc.);

September 2018

• Deliver an artwork proposal for potential production and international touring.

During 2019

• International touring of the produced artworks, a minimum of 3 occasions in 3 different European countries;

During 2020

• With ambition to, with no time or money, solve complex global issues which politicians, researchers, capitalists and slacktivists haven’t solved with pornographic (the European Commission sees what we did here) amounts of opportunity and resources;
• A peculiar sense of humor helps, but won’t save you or us from global catastrophe and mutual assured destruction (relax, it’s just a joke – or is it?);

What We Offer:

• Fully covered travel and accommodation;
• Per diem for 10 days + Stipend, in line with EACEA’s max. daily rates per country*
