Call for Proposals 2017-2018
Third Space announces its new Call for Proposals for the year 2017–2018. This invitation welcomes all forms of contemporary art, critical pedagogy and social activism: exhibitions, performances, installations, sound art, experimental poetry, lectures, talks, workshops, seminars, hacking sessions,etc.
To continue our last year’s approach on identity and its margins, Third Space’s next year programme theme is “After the Future” and will welcome proposals focused on the concept of nationalism and its current situation in society. This is in relation to Finland's centenarian in 2017 and how as a nation we should reflect the increasing inequality in society at the same time that we celebrate unity.
What does After the Future mean? What does it mean to have a past-tense future? Is it nostalgia? Historiography? Whose future are we talking about? After the Future, is a call to arms—to address the post-utopian future, without the trappings of the myth that it is subjected to our present, and focusing on it as a potential space for change and possibilities.
One day to two weeks during the months of March 2017 to February 2018.
The applicant can suggest a time that would be most appropriate for the realisation of the project.
The applicant is also in charge of opening the space for the duration of the project.
