open calls (archive IOABCN 2019)


1. Open Call for artists

This open call invites you to participate with your own idea/ artworks.
Please apply to this call until December 23 2018. 

MUTUO GALERIA (OPEN CALL) - "The Internet of Animals"

¿Qué pasará cuando los humanos empiecen a conectar animales a internet? ¿Similar a las computadoras, las cámaras, los detectores de humo, los refrigeradores o los humanos? Un mundo fascinante (o aterrador?) Para imaginar.

La exposición 'The Internet Of Animals Barcelona 2019' mostrará lo que los artistas imaginan. Estará acompañado por algunos elementos de "convención" para crear un evento que será ficticio y real al mismo tiempo. De esta forma, las obras estarán expuestas no solo a personas interesadas en el arte, sino también a personas intrigadas por el tema en sí.

Esta convocatoria abierta te invita a participar con tu propia idea / obras de arte, hasta el 23.12.2018

Posibles variaciones:

A) Creas algo independiente, inspirado en la trama, como se indica arriba (Internet de los animales). Por favor, aplique con el concepto primero.

B) Descubres que algo que ya creaste tiene un significado (nuevo) en el contexto de la trama. Por favor contáctenos directamente con material explicativo sobre el trabajo.

C) Usted participa en un programa especial de colaboración experimental del proyecto, comenzando con un impulso más detallado del proyecto. El camino hacia el resultado será uno de los impulsos entre usted y el proyecto. En este caso, póngase en contacto con FUFF / Ifuz para hablarlo. El trabajo pueden ser objetos, imágenes, etc., pero también algo interactivo.

Condiciones: El transporte corre a cargo del artista. Las actividades del proyecto van más allá de este evento, por lo que es posible presentar algunas cosas adicionalmente o alternativamente más adelante o en otra forma.

El evento: 'La Convención de Internet de los Animales en Barcelona 2019
Exposición del 19 de Febrero al 02 de Marzo 2019
dirección: Mendez Nuñez nº7, Bajos 1—2, 08003 Barcelona (ESP)

El Background del Proyecto: Ifuz es iniciador de 'El Internet de los animales' y plataformas experimentales como Experimental Bureau (e57.org) * y FUFF **.
- * El Buró Experimental, originalmente ubicado en Frankfurt, proporciona ideas y plataformas experimentales.
- ** FUFF es una universidad experimental abstracta, una forma complementaria de investigación y estudio en la que a menudo se involucra el arte.

Possible variations:
A) You create something independent, inspired by the plot, as headlined above (Internet Of Animals). Please apply with the concept first. It is not yet known how many applications will be submitted and how the entries fit together and how they fit into the exhibition space.

B) You discover that something you already created does have a (new) meaning in the context of the plot. Please contact us directly with explanatory material on the work.

C) You participate in a special experimental collaboration program of the project, starting with a more detailed impulse from the project. The way to the result will be one of impulses between you and the project. In this case contact FUFF/Ifuz instead to talk it through.

The work can be objects, visuals, etc., but also something interactive that has its place in the 'convention' program. 

However, there can be no guarantee of participation: There are limitations of space, compatibility and other factors, some of which are still unknown (as we don't know the applications yet). 
The transport to and from the site must be done by yourself.
The activities of the project go beyond this event, so that it is possible to present some things additionally or alternatively later or in another form.

The event: 'The Internet Of Animals Convention Barcelona 2019'
date/time: Feb 19- Mar 2, 2019
address: Mendez Nuñez nº7, Bajos 1—2, 08003 Barcelona (ESP)

2. Open Call for presentations, workshops, theme days, your ideas

The concept of this 'convention' is an open platform/stage. People or initiatives can plug in with their own concept or let themselves be inspired in a dialogue, exchange, or cooperation with FUFF.

It can be an installation, a presentation, a workshop, even a whole sub-project, like a makers or children day.

Let yourself be inspired from the topic, think of an idea and contact me about it. That should be ideally be until December 15.
Or: make contact first and develop something in exchange with FUFF.

Information on the workshops/presentations or the opportunity to get involved with your concept:

agenda: exhibition, workshops, seminars


the exhibition

Artists are continually invited to develop their visions on the topic (in the form of inspired artworks). Their enigmatic visions, formulated in their own language of representation, serve as access to a reflective and self-surprising discourse. And they even lead to concrete ideas and innovations. This exhibition is linked to a new open call for contributions from local artists and possible additions by international artists. The exhibition is not only aimed at those interested in art, but also evokes curiosity and intrigue among passers-by, thus stimulates a subsequent discourse within and outside the project. For this purpose, the exhibition is continuously accompanied and contains some special trigger elements.

seminars, workshops, presentations

This module, like the art module, includes an open call, too. Plug in with your concept of workshops, presentations, interactive modules.

Previous workshops in the project worked as follows:

A hypothesis is presented as an introduction. This can take the form of a conceptual metaphor describing technological change.

Or it may be a bold or bizarre idea of how to connect a particular animal to the Internet.
This was followed by a period in which we examined the idea with a special adaptation to the background of the participants

Example topics of those workshops/seminars have been:

"Can we be artificially happy?", "How dogs now can give each other orgasms over distance", "Improving the quality of life of the Wifi-chicken through data science".

The actual schedule is yet to be determined due to the opportunity to get involved with your own concepts: see open calls

specials: maker day? animal day? children day?
