This Monday is the deadline for DIY 10 proposals. Get yours in now!
DIY is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to conceive and run unusual training and professional development projects for other artists. Platform’s call is for “Live Art, performance as protest and the online element.”
Platform invites proposals that look at performance and protest via the internet. Many artists make work with an online element. Protest art often takes place via the internet. What approaches might artists want to explore for this kind of work? What questions does this raise for artists and groups making art interventions around where they situate their work, how they reach new audiences, the potential of the web to add a new layer to their performances, and the impact taking place online has on the work? We’re open to proposals from artists, activists, social media geeks, video editors…anyone who wants to propose a project that looks at live art and protest with an online element. Proposal-makers might want to refer to the live streaming of Marina Abramovic’s The Artists is Present, Tate Live/The Performance Room, Liberate Tate and Link Up Films – whose films were online usually within two hours of Liberate Tate’s performances, and the live streaming of protest events e.g. Occupy Wall Street.
