Description Of Opportunity:
Project description (GERMAN): https://www.wuerdekompass.org/wuerde-und-beruehrbarkeit
We award up to 6 project grants to artists who work on a performance or installation on the theme “dignity and receptivity in times of distance keeping”.
The central point is the connection between human dignity and human receptivity (physical, emotional). A critical, artistic and personal examination of the topic should be negotiated. The work should be shown publicly, but this is not mandatory. If live, it should be available via live stream. The work is to be documented on video.
A high-quality video (min. 1280 × 720 pixels) that depicts the work in an appropriate and artistically demanding manner must be delivered promptly, duration approx. 8-12 min. This video will be made available online on the project page. This also includes a short interview and an accompanying text on the artistic placement, which will also published online. Language: German or English. In the case of English, the accompanying text must be translated into German.
The artists are completely responsible for the execution and completion. The property rights of the material remain with the artists, the Max Himmelheber-Stiftung (foundation) and the Wuerdekompass e.V. (association) receive an unrestricted, non-commercial right of use and distribution, naming the artists.
The project grant is € 750, or up to € 1000 if the need is justified. Half of the payment is made with the acceptance and the other half with the delivery of the video and text material. The completion should take place as early as possible, at the latest by November 30th, 2020. The grants can be awarded before the deadline. They are not tax exempt.
How To Apply:
Submit a project outline with max. 4 pages. It should contain the idea, conception, execution, contributors and, if necessary, financing. It is also possible to send in a short draft in order to explore interest in the full draft.
The call for applications is open until September 15, 2020 or until all grants have been awarded.
Only natural persons are allowed to apply. The minimum age is 18 years.
We try seriously, neither positively nor negatively, to discriminate on the basis of group-specific characteristics. Omitting such characteristics (e.g. gender, age, origin) in the application does not represent a disadvantage. A portrait photo should be avoided. The naming is voluntary. We reserve the right to withdraw the acceptance of the grant if it becomes clear after the acceptance that the applicant has fraudulently deceived or is contrary to the goals of the free, democratic order, in particular the inviolability of human dignity.
The judges’ decision is final.
