Open Call: "The Beholder" Exhibition October 2017
Organized by SomoS Art House
Deadline: September 30th, 6pm, 2017
Application Fee: none
Medium: Performance, Time-based Artworks, Durational and Ephemeral Installations
For "The Beholder" group exhibition organized in conjunction with the acclaimed PornFilmFestival Berlin, SomoS Art House is once again calling for submissions for performative projects and ephemeral installations as critical responses to the notions of erotic fantasy, consumption of images, and the spectatorship and voyeurism of sexuality in our mediated society.
Contributions to "The Beholder" should include detailed plans for works such as performances or participatory installations with ambient or durational characteristics such as temporality, ephemerality, or immateriality. But time-based works in any medium will be considered.
Selected artists/performers will be invited to participate in an exhibition at SomoS Art House in Berlin that will take place from October 24th to November 4th, 2017, in conjunction with the Porn FilmFestival Berlin.
To get an impression, please view last year's edition of this exhibition series: Custom Paradise.
Deadline for Submissions:
September 30th, 6pm, 2017

The Perpetual Conversation of Movement & Light: Marguerite Harris
SomoS welcomes back U.S. American visual artist, experimental filmmaker and writer Marguerite Harris for a short work/research Artist-in Residence. One year after her impressive solo exhibition Film is Un/Dead and Cameraless Film and Experimental Sound workshop, Marguerite joins us again, this time to weld a kinetic light sculpture for use in her installations.
“The perpetual conversation of movement and light,” is how Marguerite Harris’ work was described in the eminently readable exhibition essay accompanying her first Berlin solo show.
Marguerite Harris's work incorporates elements of collage, analog film, video-art, installation and New Media; merging older or outmoded techniques such as film and video signals with newer editing and computer graphing techniques, creating hybrid works.
Find out more about Marguerite Harris or learn about artist residencies at SomoS.
