JOIN US IN THE MAKING OF A PUBLICATION!
→ We’re looking for artists & writers to join us in the making of a publication marking 5 years of Common Ground, and 5 years since Angela Merkel's statement "Wir schaffen das".
It's a paid opportunity primarily for creatives who arrived in Berlin as refugees or asylum seekers, but also for internationals who demonstrably work with a socially engaged approach.
Part 1 of the publication is intended for sharing experiences of people who arrived in Berlin in the past 5 years as refugees or asylum seekers. We’re particularly interested in the perspectives of students, alumni, and people who plan to study at UdK; but also perspectives of creatives outside of the university.
Part 2 is planned as a space for artistic & written contributions with a socially engaged approach. Bring your ideas or finished works that fit well within the thematic span. Keywords: migration, displacement, exile, detention, quarantine, territory, home, body, borders, liminality, belonging, (dis)integration, (de)colonisation, dehumanisation, othering, (anti)racism, (mis)representation, (hyper)visibility.
Part 3 is undefined - it should come up through our exchange of ideas. We want this to be a collaborative project where everyone can express their vision.
→ Send us your pitches, ideas, or finished writings and/or artworks until 16.08. Or just get in touch & introduce yourself if you see yourself fit for this project (CV / portfolio / work samples are an advantage). You should be able to contribute between 17.08. - 01.10.
Deadline: 16.08.2020 (flexible)
