Open Call

16 Days Laboratory in the Nature


With Funding
Free / No Costs
Stadt Wehlen, Germany


What we are looking for the Laboratory: For full time participation, we are looking for artists/researchers who are willing to join us with an openness for unpredictable experimentations of re-inventing our transformative ‘selves’, without expectations on a certain setting and form of outcome. All we would appreciate here is a respect and curiosity to any kind of space altering and mutating engines that will probably be activated during the time of living together. For part-time participation, we are looking for an artistic/personal practices that is a shareable experience through the format workshop, guided practice, one-on-one/group therapy, happening, lecture, collaborative experiment and improvisation, (interactive) installation and performance, which incorporates the given natural/unnatural environments. We are particularly interested in projects that work with recycled materials, natural materials, non-materials, and food / eatables, but not limited to these spheres.

Program Description

With this year’s theme “_-m(- u-)lti-yo(- u-)u-s-m(- u-)lti- ̄ ”, we would like to invite you to participate in a process-orientated collective experimentation and creation. We wish the formation of such contacts may evolve as a living organism that is interwoven by and with the entities like the ‘(-multi-) you’ and every other “yous” will encounter in the near future. We would like to establish dialogues between participants’ experience and expertise, and develop into visions of speculative scenarios, that could bring about novel approaches to reconsider, re-imagine, re-store, and re-invent embodiments that encourage us to (re-) discover the ‘multiple natures’ within and beyond our ‘multiple selves’. For a solidarity among various spaces, agencies, systems and societies — that is, to deconstruct, merge, transform, interweave the ‘outside’ and the ‘inside’, and to eventually open up potential ‘spaces’ for the ‘multiples’ yet to come. *please download and read the PDF for more detail
