As a member of the international collaboration A-Place, LOOP is organising the third open call to commission a video production to investigate the process of creating a sense of place in one of the six cities participating in the project. (Barcelona, Bologna, Brussels, Lisbon, Ljubljana and Nicosia).
The LOOP Festival, together with LOOP Fair (part of the annually-scheduled and worldwide art-market events) and LOOP Studies (its generator and repository of knowledge), is a platform that features films and videos of international artists in a series of exclusive events that take place every year and are attended by professionals that come to Barcelona from all corners of the globe. After nineteen editions, it has become an unavoidable meeting point that screens 200–500 videos exhibited at 80–100 venues in the city and its surroundings. More than 400 platforms and agents are actively involved in the festival and it attracts an audience estimated around 120,000 visitors.
The purpose of this call is to invite multidisciplinary artists to explore and widen the meaning of place in our multicultural, interconnected societies. The aim is to produce a video that presents, documents, deconstructs, expands, speculates, challenges, fictionalises, etc. the experience of creating places. The production of the video is an activity that is carried out within the social dynamics of urban space with the aim of developing a sense of place that overcomes any existing physical, social or cultural inertia.
Application deadline: 28 February
