Open Call: Sonic Acts continues its OVEREXPOSED home-based residency programme
OVEREXPOSED Sonic Acts Home-Based Residency Sonic Acts is proud to announce the continuation of the OVEREXPOSED residency programme. With this renewed open call, we invite applications from artists and researchers working across the fields of environmental humanities with a special focus on pollution and experimental art and media. The deadline for applications is 1 September 2021. OVEREXPOSED is part of a four-year research programme from Sonic Acts on the materiality of pollution and systemic and political issues related to the contamination of our environment. It is an opportunity for artists and researchers to expand their practice and develop new ideas and methodologies while being financially supported in their work. Scheduled to take place in November 2021, the residency enables artists and researchers to develop their practice around the core questions underlying the OVEREXPOSED programme – investigating pollution and its (unequal) effects on all things living and non-living. Using artistic research as an exploration of the connections between aesthetics, historical materiality and politics, the programme intends to create awareness about pollution and its interconnectedness on a planetary scale, stimulate thought and imagination about necessary steps and, of course, mobilise direct action. For more information on the programme and how to apply, check out the open call on Homerun. Watch video introductions to previous OVEREXPOSED residents below, as they addressed overlapping ethnic and environmental struggles or looked at climate change and pollution in relation to different approaches to time.
