MUU MAA Art Bus 16.7.2016 – will You be part of the journey?

OPEN CALL TO ARTISTS for performances, installations, videos, sound art, interactive art, photography – as well as other forms of contemporary art!

MUU MAA Art Bus is an interactive experiential public event of meetings between artists and audiences. Audiences and artists will travel by bus, stopping along the way to view site-specific art that comes to being in the very moment and time where the audience and artists find themselves.

The purpose of the project is to make art interesting and accessible, to create a professionally crafted, rich and easily approachable art experience.

The project producer, Artists’ Association MUU, will provide the general framework, while artists will be responsible for producing the content. We are searching for artists to bring or create a work of art along the route, or in the bus.

The selection criteria place a heavy emphasis on community aspects and accessibility. We will focus particularly on community art, performance, video and sound art from the general region of Southwest Finland (Varsinais-Suomi). Each artist will tailor a piece which will be realised by MUU in compliance with the concept. The artwork can also be finished or previously presented. All artists are welcome to submit proposals!

All matters pertaining to the realisation of the work (performers, venue, materials, schedules) are handled by the producer in collaboration with the artist. The producer will be in charge of publicity and marketing as well as all publishing and distribution generated by and associated with the project.

We are looking to engage about 5–8 artists for the project. They will receive 300 euro in artist fees per work (for each artist/group). The selections will be made by the MUU exhibition committee.

The first route of the MUU MAA Art Bus is Turku–Mynämäki–Uusikaupunki–Vehmaa–Kemiönsaari–Somero–Turku.

The Artists’ Association of Finland’s communications officer and editor-in-chief of Taiteilija magazine, Miisa Pulkkinen hosts a communication workshop, in which the participants examine communication methods useful for visual artists. Pulkkinen has previously worked as an editor and newscaster for tv channel Nelonen and as a culture correspondent for Helsingin Sanomat.

If possible, the participants should bring their own laptop or tablet device so they can examine different social media channels. Press releases can also be brought along for commentary.

Clinic II: Installation of media art – possibilities of new applications
Monday 25 January 2016

The workshop, organized in cooperation with Pro Av Saarikko, gives an introduction into the installation of media art and possibilities of new technology and applications. The free-form course takes a practical approach on the subject.

Topics of the workshop include:
– How to use new and old technology in media and video art
– The possibilities and problems of changes in digital technology

Teacher: Jorma Saarikko. In cooperation with Pro Av Art Oy and Pro Av Saarikko Oy.

Clinic III: Vocal performance – workshop of singing and shouting
Monday 25 January 2016

6pm-9pm
MUU Gallery

The teacher for the workshop of singing and shouting is London-based artist Heidi Kilpeläinen (HK119), who is currently staying at the HIAP artist residency. In the workshop she will share her experiences as a performer, visual artist and musician.

The workshop consists of two parts. The participants are asked to bring with them a song and a current piece of domestic or international bad news to share. The first part of the workshop includes breathing exercises, vocalizations, singing and manipulation of song. The latter part is dedicated to the abstract expression of the world’s news, performative acts and vocal expression.

This is a unique opportunity to develop expression and a chance to “have fun and be deadly serious” simultaneously. The workshop is suitable for participants of all ages who want to relax, discover and brush up their expressive skills. You don’t need to be a “singer” to take part.

Heidi Kilpeläinen is a multi-talented visual artist, musician and designer. She is a composer, lyricist and singer, and for example Björk chose her as one of her own favourite artists in 2005. In addition, she is a clothes designer and in visual arts works not only in performance art but also with painting, sculpture, photography and video art. Kilpeläinen has studied art primarily in London and has performed all around the world, e.g. in New York. Kilpeläinen has excellent social skills and has always put a lot of focus on interactivity in her works.

OPEN CALL TO ARTISTS: PERFORMANCE VOYAGE 6
Theme: Future / Tomorrow

The theme Future / Tomorrow invites artists to explore the day and time that always lies ahead, to seek that which is yet to come, whether a promise of hope or dystopian despair. How do we see the future, what are our hopes, fears and expectations? Share your vision of the future – it may be a literal tomorrow, the world of 2050, or somewhere and sometime unimaginably distant.

• Artists’ Association MUU announces an open call to artists to submit video performances to the international PERFORMANCE VOYAGE 6 event.
• The deadline for submissions is 30 June 2015!
• The premiere of the selection will take place in the beginning of 2016. The works will go on a worldwide tour in 2016.

The first Performance Voyage (2011) was a selection of performances created for the camera. It was published in conjunction with the Performance 2011 Festival organised by MUU as part of the official programme of the Turku 2011 Capital of Culture year. The second Performance Voyage (2012) was a selection of video documentations of performances. The theme of the third collection (2013) was sound and body. The 2014 compilation consisted of video performances under the theme self-portrait. The theme of the fifth collection in 2015 was Domestic.

The open call for the Performance Voyage 6 selection is for recent video works, preferably 1–5 minutes in duration (max. 10 min.). Only submit edited footage – unedited raw footage will be rejected. The videos will be showcased as a compilation on a worldwide tour. Note: no videos will be installed or exhibited separately during the tour. The compilation will be presented worldwide in 2016, with an exhibition held in MUU Gallery in Helsinki. Works for the international tour and the Performance Voyage 6 exhibition will be selected by MUU. MUU will also publish a Performance Voyage 6 DVD for private and promotional use.

The maximum allowed duration of the videos is 10 minutes. Each submission must include the name of the artist, the title of the performance, the duration of the video and, where appropriate, also information about where, how and when the original performance took place.

In your application, you can also include a SHORT explanatory text (in English) if you wish this text would be added to the beginning or to the end of the video. The text is not a requirement, but may help the audience to understand the work better.

VIDEO FORMATS:

There is such a range of digital formats today that this can be a bit complicated. Ideally we want to get the best quality video possible – particularly if the video was shot in High Definition. Here are a few key requirements: Firstly and most importantly, all videos must be in PAL format (25 frames/sec)!

If the original video is in standard definition (SD), a good option is to send it to us on mini DV tape. You can also export the video as an AVI or Quicktime standard definition DV file and send it to us on a DVD data disk.

If the original video was shot in 16:9 (widescreen format), please export the video with a 16:9 aspect ratio – do not convert it to 4:3 (letterbox) format.
If the original was shot in a High Definition format, we recommend that you send us a copy of the video exported into a HD file format and burned as a data file on a DVD data disk. Alternatively, you can send us a download link to the file.

There are many different HD video codecs in use today. We recommend exporting the edited video using either the MP4 or H.264 codec. Export the video with a 1080p or 720p frame size and use a relatively high data rate. A 10 minute video with a high bit rate should fit onto a 4 GB DVD.

You can also upload the video to MUU’s server. You will need an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client that will transfer your files (video, image, sound) via Internet to our server. For that, you need the recipient’s FTP address (and password, if necessary). FTP requires a fixed broadband connection. Uploading large files, such as videos, is slow and difficult with mobile broadband. For instructions on FTP submission of your video, contact MUU by email muugalleria@muu.fi

Before sending us your video, please try playing it in a VLC player (http://www.videolan.org/vlc). If you can play it in VLC, there is a good chance we will be able to play the video as well.

Workshop: MOVING IN
18-22 August 2014, 10am-3pm at ESKUS (Esitystaiteen keskus)

An introduction to the contemporary exploration of urban space alongside the gentle art of reclaiming and subverting public space.

At ‘Base Camp Eskus’ we will spend a week together, create our own mini-community, whilst live, on our doorstep is the construction performance of the century, Kalasatama, an ongoing ‘production with a huge ‘cast’. With these performative transformations happening around us as a backdrop, we’ll attempt to navigate the tricky role the artist faces when working in a community setting linked to a regeneration remit. Led by Ange Taggart we’ll explore the ethics and pitfalls involved and then attempt to work together to make practical interventions in public space.

What to expect
• A stimulating and playful environment to support you to be creative.
• The chance to experiment and collaborate with interesting individuals.
• There’ll be screenings introducing artists whose initiatives are deeply motivated by concerns for social justice and equality.
• Armed with a “toolbox” of tactics and techniques, you’ll be supported to implement a small project of your own.
• After the workshop we have the possibility to continue working together over the following weeks to present our work at Amorph14 festival on 16 October.

Who should come?
We are very keen for people from a range of different backgrounds to attend. You could be a nobody, a somebody, a dysfunctional thinker, a creative, a mutant, a mentalist. Whether you call yourself an artist or not, it doesn’t matter, creativity is not reserved for the few. We don’t care if you come with experience of performance or not.

To Apply
Please supply a short paragraph about yourself and the reason why you’d like to attend. The deadline for applications is 27.6.2014. The workshop is for 15 participants who will be selected by 1.7.2014.
The cost for the workshop is 50€/25€ (students). It is also possible to apply for a complimentary participation based on financial difficulties.
Send your application to: amorph@muu, subject of the mail “Moving in”.

Open Call for Artists: AMORPH!14 Performance Art Festival

Apply to work as an artist at AMORPH14!-festival!
(Helsinki, Finland 17th – 19th October 2014)

Deadline 25th April 2014.

The theme of the festival is COMMUNITY

How does art shape communities? AMORPH!, produced by the Finnish Artists’ Association MUU, is the oldest performance art happening in the Nordic countries. In 2014, AMORPH14! focuses on community-based performances. The festival program consists of dialogical partnerships between artists and communities, aiming to create communal processes as performances.

A community is understood as any coalition of people or other creatures that considers itself a community; it can be seen as a performance of collective needs. The unifying principle may be for example location, language, heritage, economy, kinship, political agenda, love or faith. In AMORPH14! these performed commonalities are intertwined with the work of the artists.

The works of the festival will be realized in two *contexts* and will follow a double logic: that of the artistic process and that of the communal need. The pieces need thus to find a way to open up to a double *audience*: the community in question and the general public. To meet this challenge, the pieces open up to those audiences as both *processes* and *performances.*

This brings forth multiple questions. Can the process itself be a performance? How is it performed for those who don’t take part in that process? What does it mean for an artist to follow their own artistic path, listen to the community and not compromise either way in the process? Is a community-based art piece possible without compromising the intrinsic value of art? How do the unpredictable, contingent and ambiguous tendencies of art meet the specific needs of communities?

The festival takes place 17th -19th October 2014. It will house five international artists, chosen through the open call and byan invitation. MUU will pair each artist with an appropriate local community, in co-operation with the artist. The artists will work with the communities between August and October and will receive a fee for one months work. The works will be performed during the weekend of the festival or depending on the content of the piece, may also be performed during the process. The festival will publish a guidebook on how to make a community-based performances for which each artist will provide a recipe-like text based on the process of their piece, sharing their methods to be applied by other artists and communities. The festival seeks to document the communal processes as thoroughly as possible. The festival is curated by Tuomas Laitinen, who is a live artist based in Helsinki.’
