CALL FOR ARTISTS > ZERO FUTUR(E) 2014 – The HTMlles – Feminist festival of media arts + digital culture, 11th editionDeadline: 17 November 2013 Notification to authors: January 2014 When: November 2014 Where: Montreal, Canada
Taking place in Montreal, The HTMlles is an international biennial festival that brings together artists, scholars and activists who are passionate about critical engagement with new technologies from a feminist perspective. Based on a specific theme, each edition addresses urgent socio-political questions by pushing the boundaries of artistic and feminist practices.
The HTMlles is produced by Studio XX, a bilingual feminist artist-run centre for technological exploration, creation and critique. Initiated in 1997, the festival began as an international platform for introducing women’s web art. Collaborating closely with partner organizations, The HTMlles has become a multi-site festival dedicated to the presentation of women’s, trans and gender non-conforming artists’ independent media artworks in a transdisciplinary environment that strives for anti-oppression.
The HTMlles 11 is seeking submissions that shed light on the perception of “today’s futures” by different generations, including critical and creative propositions inspired by (but not limited to) afrofuturism, chicanafuturism, feminist cyberpunk, utopian and dystopic cyberfeminism or other feminist sf and queer futurity, for instance.
The HTMlles 11 welcomes project proposals from self-identified women, trans and gender non-conforming artists, curators, activists, collectives, and organizations.
Examples of media/formats: net art, audio and electronic art, radio art, video art, installation, locative media, 3D animation, game art, augmented reality, digital storytelling, short film, bio art, public interventions, open source and community-based practices, performance and interdisciplinary practices, workshops, roundtable discussions- or something so futuristic, we haven’t even heard of it yet…
