Next GROSSES TREFFEN will take place April 22, 2017
Application Deadline: January 13, 2017
Großes Treffen / Stormöte /Suuri kokous / Stort møte /Listastefna / Stormødeis a one-day network event that offers the opportunity for Finnish, Swedish, Icelandic, Norwegian, Greenlandic, Faroese, and Danish visual artists to do portfolio presentations, get feedback on their work, and become acquainted with key agents of the Berlin and Nordic art scenes – curators and thinkers.
Fundamental social, economic, and aesthetic values in the Nordic Countries are changing these years, therefore GROSSES TREFFEN 2017 thematically focuses on exploring CHANGING VALUES in the North. Do we see ourselves as materialists, innovators, ecologists, hedonists, or as privileged? In which way are values shifted and how could the possible futures of Nordic societies evolve and develop? We invite artists to send in applications, that in one way or the other are dealing with the mentioned issues.
The Nordic Embassies will host the event where the selected artists will have the chance to meet a number of prominent curators and thinkers representing a selection of vibrant art institutions, residencies, festivals, museums, as well as discourses in Berlin and the Nordic Countries. A jury will preselect the participating artists and the artist profiles to be included in the online database, based on their online submitted portfolios (deadline: January 13th 2017 18:00 CET).
Organized by the Nordic Embassies. Artistic director Solvej Helweg Ovesen.
