/’fu:bar/ 2022 is oriented toward understanding, articulating and supporting various modes of digital+online IDENTITIES.
This call for art and theory is open to all and any #glitch_art file hackers, code breakers and pixel explorers with on-topic or general error-themed artwork.
The work can be submitted into 2 categories:
- Media Art + an optional Glitch Art Documentary participation submission
- Media Theory
Submission guidelines for participating in the /’fu:bar/ exhibition and production:
- To be reviewed, the work needs to be submitted in its final format (size, quality, etc.) and not as a preview.
- As we cannot remunerate you for your (art)work, we support you applying previously created, recycled, reinterpreted and repurposed art.
- Ideally the work submitted should be of a newer date but regardless we might accept relevant work of any age.
- Up to three (pieces or series) submissions are allowed (each submitted in its own application form). Links to general personal websites and work previously already shown at /’fu:bar/ will not be considered.
- While applying your work, you can optionally select to submit it to be featured in our non-profit multimedia glitch art documentary production.
- Video submissions might get selected to be screened during the main festival program week.
- The links provided need to be accessible up until and during the time of the event – at least until mid Nov 2022 (please don’t use services with expiring links).
- If you’d like your work to get printed as a poster please prepare your work as any format size/ratio between A2-A3 @ 300 DPI; smaller pieces in any DPI might get digitally displayed but not printed.
- Video pieces need to be baked (recompressed and playable in video players).
- If you wish, please include a web-optimized version of your work – otherwise we might optimize it.
- The exhibition selection results will not be e-mailed but announced on the /’fu:bar/ website prior to the event.
- Authors of the selected documentary applications will be notified via e-mail.
- For up-to-date information, please subscribe to the organizer’s NEWSLETTER (link coming soon!).
