Open call for rituals

határidődeadline: 2019. június 16.

Passage, healing, and transmission in connection with the land

Words like mutation, transformation, and transition are thus applied to artistic practices and to the institutions that make them possible. As an art center conceived to facilitate crosspollination of ideas and to act as a space welcoming experimentation in the ruins of modernity, the MAGASIN des horizons has launched an unlikely call for rituals. Under the umbrella of artistic practice, we include artists/mediums, mediators, and/or healers. We seek to host practices that foster participation in rites of passage from an ordered, rational world to a world of entanglement, meshing, and interweaving, as well as aim to overcome the insularity of the segregated and overly specialized art disciplines.

Possible formats?
Earthly rituals may take on any form imaginable:
–healing, relief
–passage, initiation
–intercession, supplication
–pagan, shamanic, daily
–collective, individual
–ancestral, contemporary
–cyclical, one-off

Participation requirements
There are no requirements.

This call is addressed to poets, writers, mediums, choreographers, visual artists, draftspersons, mediators, video artists, filmmakers, shamans, photographers, designers, stage directors, autodidacts, activists, mediators, dreamers of all ages and from all walks of life.

Research residency requirements
Research stipends and allowances are within the limits of a budget determined on project-by-project basis. Every ritual will be remunerated.
