REAKTOR Potenziale | Call for Concepts 2023/24

The REAKTOR’s cross-disciplinary programme features works that are imbued with the spirit of the times. Indeed, what is still considered experimental today may well one day be perceived as timelessly permanent. That is particularly true of contemporary art. The REAKTOR’s call for concepts is designed to seek out that very potential in the visual arts, hence the title Potenziale. Particular emphasis is to be placed on space-defining art for the REAKTOR’s architectural core, i.e. its main hall and on concepts using sound as an important element.

The chosen artists will be invited to further develop their concept and to plan its practical implementation and realisation supported by REAKTOR’s team. The resulting work of art will be showcased to the public within an exhibition or other suiting format of presentation in February 2024.

The application is a single-stage process. A description, sketches, and an enclosed portfolio of earlier works are sufficient. The REAKTOR team will be on hand to assist with the finalisation and support the implementation. A budget of up to EUR 3,500.00 is available for the exhibition production, together with practical assistance from the REAKTOR’s technical team.

Selection criteria:

  • Art experience | The Open Call is looking for works that address the topic of reason and emotion.
  • A balance between conceptual depth and material precision | Previously completed works featured in the portfolio will be taken into consideration when assessing the submission.
  • Preference will be given to objects and/or concepts that make full use of the main hall’s sizeable volume.
  • Preference will be given to concepts using sound as an important element.
  • Site specificity | Optionally a dialogue is to be sought with the genius loci (in terms of architecture, acoustics and/or content).
  • Feasibility | Budget, public safety

Entry form provided online duly filled out in full | Enclosure of a short description of the concept (max. 2,500 characters), sketches and/or other visual means designed to illustrate the concept idea | a complete portfolio of works completed to date and their exhibition
