CALL FOR ARTIST – DEADLINE 15th of September 2021.
Happiness is in connection and compassion with others, as a source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. The real purpose of art is to communicate a feeling. The global experience of the covid 19 pandemics has caused changes in the way society functions: working from home, online teaching, meetings on various internet platforms, so establishing interpersonal relationships as “another ways of communication” is a challenge.
The project includes artists from Belgrade and Berlin, who will discuss the human relationship to the body, as its most immediate nature, through their artworks and dialogue, and that relationship speaks of the human relationship to nature. The development of the senses and ecological awareness improves the environment but also aims to establish empathic interpersonal relationships, sociability, and culture. The language of contemporary art is a field of re-examining “another ways of communication” with the use of different human senses, tactility, manual work, bodily gestural free movement in space, overcoming the limited gesture of typing on a mobile phone screen or computer keyboard, where conversation with others is limited to the sense of sight and hearing.
The organization team of the project in Belgrade: Isidora Fićović (author), Ivana Vidić (coordinator), Pavle Knezević (PR)
The project partner from Berlin: Apartment Project
