Open Call Subversive Fair 2009

Which inventions make resistance easier? Which ideas undermine the 
system? Where are revolutionary forces lurking? What can we do to 
successfully dissolve hegemonies?

As the first trade fair for counter culture and resistance technology 
the Subversive Fair presents recent works which constructively 
undermine hegemonic power structures, and appropriate the production 
of public space. Subversive highlights from the realms of (political) 
interventions, (anti)fashion, (an)architecture, performance, artistic 
provocation, (satiric) art, hacktivism and actions will be presented. 
The artists will be present and visitors can participate in DIY- 
workshops, action tours, lectures, product presentations, and film 
screenings. This enables a direct transfer of knowledge and know-how 
and pushes the idea of an international, long-term conspiratorial 
network. The duration (four days), structure, organisation, ambience 
and setting of the Subversive Fair is modelled on conventional fairs.

The Subversive Fair looks for tools and subversive everyday practices 
that are produced by an engagement with boarders, migration and 
exclusion, surveillance, censorship, exclusion from education and 
health systems, racism, anti-Semitism, sexism, gender issues, 
homophobia, etc.

With our call for applications we specifically address people from 
the realms of:
Activism/Politix, Performance/Show, Invisible Theatre, Machine/Mixed 
Media Installation, Research/Development, Graphic Arts/Sculpturing, 
Social Strategy, Hacktivism, Industrial Design/Fashion, Artivism.

Applications can be made by single persons as well as collectives; It 
is possible to submit anonymous (under pseudonym).

Submit your work under www.subversivmesse.net
Deadline: 22th of July 2008.
