Call for applications: Tomorrows - Urban fictions for possible futures
The “Tomorrows - Urban fictions for possible futures” exhibition, to be held at Diplareios School in Athens, Greece, in May and June 2017, is looking for projects.
The exhibition will aim to capture the urban future through different utopian and dystopian scenarios being developed by artists, architects and designers, opening up to territories with different possibilities and needs.
The open call of the exhibition focuses on projects addressing the future of Mediterranean cities, a region summing up the crisis of the Western world. Hit hard by the ongoing financial crisis and affected by mass population movements and climate change, the area is going through transformations affecting both the natural and the urban environments.
The exhibition will examine how the future of the Mediterranean might evolve, imagining what, for instance, the role of smart systems, biometric technologies and network infrastructures will be.
“Tomorrows” aims to involve existing projects as well as new proposals for works referring – without being limited – to objects, systems, infrastructures and environments. It welcomes visionary ideas for alternative futures as well as reflective responses to the phenomena of the present.
Production costs will be covered for the projects that are selected, and travel costs will be covered for those projects that require the presence of the artist for their set-up.
