Other People Have a Nationality

“Other people have a nationality. The Jews and the Irish have a psychosis.” – Brendan Behan

An exhibition project about the concept of home.

Everybody has at least one ‘home’, it is an abstract word that relates to a set idea of a place but is rather determined by personal experience.

It relates to heritage, nationality, family background, personal story, travel experience, cultural background, religion – only naming a few factors.

This project is going life with two open-calls:

  1. Submit a video with your answer to the question ‘What is home?’: this video can be as you wish, filmed with your phone, animated, properly screened, involving friends…! Make it no longer than 3 minutes and send it over!
  2. Call for art work about the topic of ‘Home’: as broad and as narrow as ‘home’ can get, every interpretation is accepted. Installations, kinetic work, new media, performance and film only.

Interested? Email nationality@fringeartsbath.co.uk to submit. Deadline Monday 27 March 2017.

Curated by Sveta Antonova.

Home? - We want your work!

'Other People Have a Nationality' is an exhibition project including two open calls.

ARTWORK

(scroll up for VIDEO call)

“Other people have a nationality. The Jews and the Irish have a psychosis.” – Brendan Behan

Based on this quote we encourage artists, makers and creatives to think about the meaning of home, a home, many homes. Home in your language, in your cultural surroundings, in your family history.

As there is this one word 'HOME' for a feeling of belonging so varied, it is hard to grasp and more abstract than firts thought...

Feel comfortable, dream big, outside the box and off the wall!

Accepted mediums: Installations, kinetic work, new media, performance and film only.

Please email your submission to nationality@fringeartsbath.co.uk

Deadline: 27 March 2017

Include: A project/ artwork description of max. 500 words, up to 5 low-quality images / video link / Dropbox linlk

Files to be saved as a single PDF or Word .doc including your name in every file title.
