  • LAPSUS_263x215

    Lapsus, open call for photographic & video works Lapsus is an International call for photographic and video projects curated by the Italian critic Marinella Paderni which invites artists to reflect on how “History of art shows us that many works were born of accidental 'mistakes' which occurred during the execution of a project, the taking of a picture or the recording of a video; such slips or lapsus' often occur without the knowledge of the author, who can use them as a point of strength in the final work.” More about the theme: First Prize: € 1,000 Second Prize: € 500 Third Prize: € 500 Entries by 28 February 2013. Entry fee is € 40 per project uploaded directly online. Each project can contain up to 10 photographs and/or videos (max 10 minutes). By 30 March, 15 projects will be chosen by the selection panel which includes Martin Breindl, Elena Ceratti and Silvio Wolf. At the exhibition opening on 17 May 2013 the curator of Lapsus, Marinella Paderni, will choose the three winning projects and award € 2,000 prizes. Exhibition of the 15 projects will be at the fsmgallery, Florence, Italy, and will run from 17 May to 15 June 2013. Lapsus is a collaboration between Fondazione Studio Marangoni and Celeste Network.

The End

The End

The End is an international call for works in any media, curated by the US-based Gean Moreno.
Which new visual forms can the idea of 'the end' generate in our particularly turbulent historical moment?
The apocalyptic imagination would finally find its prophesies fulfilled. The Book of Revelations was leaving the page. But of course the end is rarely about the end, and it seems to be much less so these days.

Entries online by 15 October 2012
