ANTI Festival 2010

ANTI is an international contemporary arts festival presenting site-specific works made for public space. Over the past eight years ANTI has presented live, sonic, visual and text-based art from todayís most exciting and innovative artists. A truly international festival and Finlandís foremost presenter of Live Art, ANTI is a meeting place for artists and audiences fascinated by how art shapes and responds to the places and spaces of everyday life.

ANTI Festival 2010 will focus on textual, written and language-based responses to site specificity. ANTI encourages artists working across a range of media to consider the following areas of enquiry:

-Page and screen-based responses to site - contextual approaches to publication and dissemination
-Mapping and mark-making - geographic and topographic textual processes
-Inscription - the materiality of writing
-Language and translation - nationhood and place
-Writing as performance - live writing as contextual and site-based practice
-Performance texts and site-based processes - spatial/contextual engagement and live utterance

ANTI Contemporary Art Festival will be held in Kuopio, Finland between 29 September - 3 October 2010. All proposals must be sent using the electronic form on ANTI Festival's website. The form allows a link to be made to any online documentation artists may have of their work and for artists to attach their CV and one image of their work. In addition ONE piece of supporting material (i.e. DVD, CD-ROM) can be submitted as hardcopy.

The proposal deadline is Fri 19 February 2010.
