What’s the difference between a collapse, a downfall, or a downright apocalypse? How will it all end, and why do we love to wonder? Ice or fire, zombies or bombs? Out with a bang or a whimper?
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY is supported through SFI’s (Science Foundation Ireland) Discovery Programme and will explore why the disastrous can be devilishly entertaining, and whether there’s any truth to these dismal predictions. Join doomers, designers, and doctors as they lay out the top threats to our world, evaluate how likely they are, and spell out exactly what we can (hopefully) do about it.
Please note that in addition to this standard open call for proposals, we will soon be launching a smaller call seeking up to four original works to be developed in collaboration with leading Irish research institutes.
OPEN CALL: We are seeking proposals for up to 20 works for our IN CASE OF EMERGENCY exhibition. Proposals may be new or existing works, and will be funded up to a maximum budget of €2600, which should include all artist fees, materials, equipment, shipping, travel etc. Please note that these are maximum amounts, not targets. We are happy to write letters of support for applicants seeking funding from elsewhere.
