OPEN CALL - The Airport Society

This call is closed. Polish artist Tomasz Mróz will be working with The Airport Society. More information to follow!

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.

  • Kunsthal Gent offers a working period for a visual artist to collaborate with The Airport Society on the stage production of Requiem by Verdi for Theatre St. Gallen, Switzerland
  • The premiere is planned for the Spring of 2023
  • The conceptual development process is about to start in April 2022
  • The work period includes a budget of 5.000 euro (inclusive of VAT)
  • The spaces of Kunsthal Gent can offer an environment to develop the work and share it with an audience after the realisation of the opera.


HOW TO APPLY?

  • Apply through this form, deadline 27 March.
  • Krystian Lada (The Airport Society) and Danielle van Zuijlen (Kunsthal Gent) will select 2 or 3 candidates for an interview
  • Interviews will take place on Thursday 31 March in de afternoon.


"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
