CONNECTING CITIES: INVISIBLE and VISIBLE Cities 2015. Call For Proposals

Connecting Cities is a network of worldwide cultural institutions. The aim is to foster the circulation of artistic and cultural contents throughout European and worldwide urban screens and media facades.

With the curatorial theme of INVISIBLE and VISIBLE Cities 2015 we want to develop an awareness on the changes which are hardly visible to the eyes and are underlying our nowadays cities. Our today's modern cities are hybrid structures in which technology is invisibly interweaved in the perception layers of our everyday lives. We call for artistic scenarios to visualise invisible, embedded 'smart' urban infrastructures and analyse their impact on the technological transformation of our society in a broad and public discourse.

Submit your project proposal until 31 October, 2014, 23:59h CET

Call for Collaborators. Wanting to and Being Able to Screen in the City 2014-2015

Which contents potential spectators are interested in seeing on the city’s screens? Do you want to learn more about about the legislation, rules and conditions that determine what contents can be screened freely, openly and civically?

During this course (2014-2015) the research leads to a workshop that aims to clarify which are the limits and how do they affect the uses of the public space. As a case study we will focus on film contents in Medialab-Prado's digital facade.

Project curated by Nerea Calvillo and organized by n'UNDO, a reflection, debate adn action platform, selected through the Participatory City of Connecting Cities Network 2014 to be produced in Medialab-Prado.

Open registration to anyone interested in participating in the development of this project. Deadlie: September 30. December 31.
