OPEN CALL SUMMER SEMESTER 2019
UNTIL 27TH MARCH
One can't deny the many crises and downfalls we face and the structures of inequality within our society. However, to have this as the only model in circulation is both dangerous and paralyzing. While it is necessary to continue interrogating and drawing attention to power constructions, we also must seek out counter-narratives to this hegemonic discussion. Such counter-narratives should include stories of journeys for fulfillment, happiness, desire, and joy beyond the concurrent discourses of fear, terror, doubt and despair. This kind of personal agency is potentially a more intimidating and disruptive force than a spiral into anxiety, depression, and pain.
This semester otic. radio from the academy of media arts cologne invites you to reclaim pleasure through practice, as a means of confronting the many accumulating impediments that stand in its way.
otic.radio welcomes proposals for broadcasts lasting a minimum of 15 minutes up to 1 hour in duration, taking the form of radio plays, radio essays, spoken word, readings, performances, interviews, live-discussion, sound art, experimental music, field recordings, live sessions, and DJ sets.
Our weekly programme of broadcasts will appear as a live-stream on the KHM website and will be available afterward for download.
The call is open to existing projects or ideas still in development. Works in any language may be submitted.
The application form [https://goo.gl/forms/G8Qns62AP2oSveJP2] should be completed in English or German and include the following materials:
We are also looking for co-organisers, if you are interested please mention this in your application.
