Deadline: 26 February 2021
When: between September 2021 and June 2022
Where: Athens, Greece
Onassis AiR, the (inter)national artistic research residency program in Athens (Greece), invites artists, curators, designers, activists, collectives, educators, legal advocates, performance makers, economists, architects, filmmakers and other practitioners from any medium of expression or discipline to apply for the second iteration of The School of Infinite Rehearsals: Movements V–VIII, running between September 2021 and June 2022.
Conceived as a collective research program, The School of Infinite Rehearsals brings together an interdisciplinary group of participants.
For our second year, we will look inwardly and also outwardly, for the spatial and temporal structures that affect the ways we live, act and come together. How do we relate to others and how do we organize our decisions? What modes of governance do we adhere to and how do we shape them? What economic systems do we choose to be complicit in and how much agency do we claim to implement radical alternatives? How do we institute our knowledge(s) and acknowledge our institutional complacency or complicity?
Onassis AiR is not looking for answers, but rather for questions, intricacies, aspirations, intuitive strategies that need to be tested, and for ways to imagine other modes of functioning as societies.
The working language of fall 2021 & spring 2022 Movement Groups is English. All accepted participants will receive a research fee, housing, travel to/from Athens, a collective research budget, and other resources.
