THE CALL HAS CLOSED. For Edition #12 we expect to hold a Call for Concepts again; keep an eye out on this page for updates.

Theme Edition #11

'In Search of the Miraculous': during this edition we delve into the magical character of light. Light has the unique ability to be both visible and intangible at the same time – it is the ultimate means or messenger of things we cannot (or do not want to) explain. The artworks create room for us to think about the play of mysterious powers and appearances, in and outside of this world. Edition #11 will take place from 1 December 2022 - 22 January 2023.

Call for Artworks 2022-2023

Every year we hold an Open Call for the next festival edition. This year things are a little different, as we have a Call for Artworks: we invite already existing artworks to be part of our festival. The artworks will be selected by our festival team and an independent jury. Selection will happen based on certain criteria, such as the role of light, fit to the theme and compliance of the briefing.

Curious to know more about the theme, criteria for the artwork and selection procedure? Request the Call for Artworks – Artist Briefing via the button below! The deadline to submit your artwork is Monday 28 March 2022, 12:00 CET.
