Open call

Since 2011 Video Sound Art has supported the production of new artworks by promoting research paths in historical archives or artistic residences. Over the years, the new works – with the support of expert craftsmen and scholars – have been presented to the public in exhibition contexts far from ordinary distribution circuits, with the aim of testing the ability of art to adapt to different social contexts: public schools, underground spaces such as the former hotel Diurno Venezia, theater rooms … Ten years of attempts in which the winners were involved in the creation of social-sharing models, rethinking public spaces, connecting with random visitors or in the presence of the most important actors of the sector – artists, gallery owners, collectors, representatives of public and private institutions.

In contrast to the alleged autonomy of formal art, these practices necessitate the opening of a dialogue between distant disciplines and contexts, subject to a mutual interpretative ambiguity. Sewing up the relational fabric that is missing in reality is among the objectives of these operations.
