TrashEra 2017 ART SHOWCASE OPPORTUNITY: Open call for visual artists & performers working with NEW MEDIA ART


Now Accepting Applications for March 2017
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Sunday, January 15, 2017 - 5pm

We are now accepting applicants for the 2017 event TrashEra CONTAGION.

TrashEra is a Berlin-based community of people from all over the world experimenting with riotous forms of expression, collaboration and celebration. Our ambition is to provide an open and welcoming platform for the multiplication of disorderly singularities and equal differences outside recognizable identities and respected norms. In creating event-spaces where club culture bleeds into art and performance, TrashEra provokes exuberant modalities of being oneself and with others beyond traditional experiences of leisure and entertainment. Trash is not garbage. It is our method for teasing out the excess theatrics and frivolous joy hidden within the everyday. We are the worst but the best!

TrashEra_CONTAGION will take place at magdalena​ Berlin.

We invite new media artists from various disciplines (installation, video art, performance, spoken word, etc.) to submit proposals for new work, related to our theme, with a contagious effect on their surroundings.

++ Contagion is the practice of affecting and being affected. It is a modality of exchange to intensify, multiply and accelerate that which already exists towards no predetermined end. Contagion is a language for transformation. ++

EVENT DATE : March 31st, 2017
