DISKURS is a festival at the interface between art and theory. DISKURS35 will take place from 11. – 17. 10. 2021 and invites regional and international art and theory makers, students and interested people to come together, see, show, discuss and ask questions during these seven days. In addition, two short residencies (of two weeks each) will be offered during the festival, inviting those involved with theory and art to work on research projects on site, which can be presented during the festival period.
DISKURS confront the ongoing pandemic situation with the greatest possible permeability. Since the beginning of this crisis, the cultural scene has been riddled, conditioned, shaken and inspired by porosity. Therefore, this year DISKURS invite artistic, theoretical and conceptual positions that provide approaches to address the motto porous.
DISKURS are looking forward to constructive proposals that deal with the threatening instability and vulnerability that porous entails, on the one hand, and with generative potentials resulting from it, on the other.
A special focus this year is on the permeability between digital and analog formats. Thus, we would like to encourage you to submit not only digital formats, but also works that seek new directions in analog reality.
Anyone can apply with a work or concept of any artistic discipline. They are also explicitly looking for theoretical positions.
Formats they suggest are:
Presentation, for example, a lecture, performance, installation or any hybrid format.
Workshop, be it practice-based, theoretical or hybrid.
Presentation and workshop as two interrelated formats.
Hybrid/ undefined formats are very welcome.
