6 EUROS/100 SEK budget Artistic Practices and Precariousness
is a collaborative exhibition between Spanish and Swedish artists that will take place at Supermarket Art Fair
(Stockholm, Sweden) in February 2012. The project is run by TEH Member Off Limits
Swedish artist are invited to take part in the project with their productions. The twist to it is that the production costs for each piece cannot exceed SEK100/€6 and stagings should be easy, without using elements that might increase the production costs.
With this call, Off Limits wants to convey that although much of our society has adopted the idea that art and artists are economically prosperous; this is on the contrary a more and more precarious context. It is also important to draw attention to the need to change these circumstances, and develop more flexible working structures that support creativity and observe more closely the needs and realities of contemporary artists. We see this open call as a proposal to increase the awareness of this situation, of the need to denounce it and to improve it if we want to be able to think the present.
A first edition of this project, took place in Off Limits, in Madrid 2010. The aim of this second edition is to generate a debate around the Spanish and the Swedish artistic context.
Deadline 31st December 2011.
