'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.

Not sure where this might be going?

Have a look at this piece by russian-born but German-based artist Valeria Abendroth:

мне нравится – i like it

3-Channel-Video, 2017

Valeria's practice is focused on tradition, heritage, folklore and the role of the women within this context.

Need inspiration?

Have a look at the 'Gods and Monsters' installation by Ann Schomburg at Gallery Coucou (photo by Milen Krastev), part of the 'Heartbreakhotel, Life Imitates Art' exhibition 2016.

Even though Ann's practice is more connected to the artist as exhibitionist, you can see how this installation relates to the topic of 'HOME'. The artist slept and lived in the exhibition after the opening.
