Berlin stages blacks-only composer competitionNews
The Berlin Society for New Music is putting on a competition for composers who are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, (and) People of Colour).
In addition, they have to be familiar with NFT (Non-fungible tokens) and Bitcoin.
Why these conditions are imposed is not specified.
Here’s the shoutout:
OPEN CALL FOR BIPOC ARTISTS WORKING AT THE INTERSECTION OF EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC/BLOCKCHAINS/NFTS BASED IN BERLIN.
Deadline: 31.01.2022 23.59 CET
What we offer:
The selected artist will receive a fee (Honorar) of 2000 EUR (brutto)
In dialogue with the curatorial team, small budget for gas fees (Eth/Polygon network). Potentially also technical support with project programming, though we cannot promise this.
The artist will be included in the Process and Protocol online exhibition and in-person launch weekend in beginning to mid-April.
In dialogue with the curatorial team, potential to bring collaborators to Berlin for the in-person launch event (hotel+transport).
What we are looking for
Artistic projects, in particular those that are musical and compositional, or are being done by musical artists, addressing and/or working with blockchains, NFTs, cryptocurrencies, or their surrounding social contexts, in particular ones that are conceptual, critical, and political.
We are looking for works with a small and realistic scope that can be realized within the short timeframe of the project, but which also raise important questions about the medium and its potential and could be developed further. Projects should at best be able to be shown in some form in an online format; presentation in-person or as a performance is possible in addition to this.
Projects critical of the blockchain space are also highly welcome and encouraged.
How to Apply
Please submit before 31.01.2022 at 23.59 CET:
A short description (no more than 1 A4 page) of the proposed project and how you intend to implement it
Documentation of previous, conceptually related projects (NB previous work with NFTs/blockchains is not a prerequisite)
