International Call for Artists’ film and video

ISIS Arts (UK) and it&8217;s international project partners BEK (Norway), InterSpace (Bulgaria) and RIXC (Latvia) are curating a new screening programme around the theme of European Identity for the Big M, ISIS Art&8217;s inflatable touring space.

Daily, more and more European people decide to live in other European countries. With a shifting concept of nationality it becomes increasingly important to consider what it means to be European. Is there such a thing as European Identity and how does it relate to national identity?

For this programme we invite submissions of films or video works on this theme from artists of any nationality.

Selected works will become part of the new screening programme which will tour to the four partnering countries between May 2007 and September 2007.

Work will be selected through open submission. In order to be considered individual works must:

  • Have a running time of 5 minutes or less
  • Be single channel and non interactive
  • Address the project theme

Selected artists will receive an exhibition fee of € 300 (The Big M is not a commercial venture and admission is free). Copyright remains solely with the artist.

The Big M is a highly stylised inflatable structure that functions as a temporary and mobile venue for the presentation of video and digital media. Unique in both design and function, the Big M provides an alternative to the conventional gallery setting and exhibits work by emerging and established artists to diverse audiences.
