Within the framework of the development programme Permanently Practising, Kunsthal Gent issues a special open call for a visual artist with an interest in developing work in relation to an experimental and socially engaged opera collective: The Airport Society.
The Airport Society is a partnership of international opera artists and social entrepreneurs. They initiate projects intersecting between opera and social engagement. By developing projects that fall outside the traditional opera production systems, they question the usual distribution of power and resources in the field and explore alternative strategies for creating, producing and presenting opera. They focus on developing new strategies for collaboration between artists, policy-makers and local communities. Their projects enable artists and participants to develop new platforms for social interaction in polycultural societies.
HOW TO APPLY?
"The different ways in which the artworks in the Endless Exhibition communicate with each other reminded us of how different art forms - music, poetry, theatre, visual art, dance - communicate with each other in the medium of opera. “
- Krystian Lada, Artistic Director The Airport Society
