Call for submissions:
A Secret Rancour - Notions of Ressentiment,
a museum exhibition in Eupen, Belgium (theme show)
Deadline: December 9, 2016
opening: January 22nd, 2017
The ikob - Museum of Contemporary Art is selecting photo, video-art,
installation/sculpture and painting art works to include in the next
exhibition: A Secret Rancour - Notions of Ressentiment which will be
hosted from January 25 to April 23, 2017.
Artists are invited to submit a clear and concise documentation of a
single work or a body of work (a photo series, for example) in
connection with the exhibition theme.
You may use any means of description of your work - a single image, a
series of images, a video or video stills, a short text, a direct
link to the intended work (sub page) on a web site - anything. It
just has to serve the understanding of your work by us, the
recipients and curators.
While we have only a small amount time or concentration in reviewing
the submissions, you will have very little work preparing your
submission. Just send what you have already available by email (up to
5Mb) or via a file sharing link.
The work or works you propose must meet these two criteria:
- first, quality (the work/s should be strong and multi-layered)
- second, correspondency with the theme of the exhibition (the
artwork/s must fit to the exhibition's theme).
A Secret Rancor - Notions of Ressentiment
Ressentiment at first glance means a stereotype - a negative image I
may have of somebody else or of a particular group of people. Yet
looking closer a ressentiment is really an emotion or an attitude
which grows in the shadow of an experienced defeat, indignity or
submission, be it real or imaginary. It is this unbalanced relation
between the inferior and the superior that nurtures ressentiments
between individuals but also between language groups, specific
religious groups or whole nations.
The topic of this exhibition is today most acute, at times where
autoritarianism and nationalism are escalating almost everywhere.
Send your work documentation as soon as possible and as late as
December 9 to ikob - Museum of Contemporary Art to the adress of
Frank-Thorsten Moll, <mailto:moll at ikob.be>moll at ikob.be and Friedemann
Hoerner, <mailto:hoerner at ikob.be>hoerner at ikob.be
