GFZK e.V. is always looking for digital glitch artefacts that are committed to a socially critical art practice. The aim of the research is to create a synopsis of different glitch concepts in order to make the techniques, aesthetics and ethics hidden in them visible.

The curatorial concept is commited to Mark Fisher & his Philosophy - when title the research with

GHOST*S OF MY LIFE*S

(1) We are looking for digital sketches that refer to the political upheavals and unrest of 2010-2011-2012, identify them in the past, present and future and thereby develop independent artistic methods of Glitch Art / Glitch Aesthetics / Digital Art.

(2) We are looking for concepts that deal with the topics of post-truth society, surveillance capitalism, BIG DATA, AI hallucinations, addictions to algorithms, climate crisis and species extinction, the struggle for livable territories, democracy movements and glitch feminism - ideally with methods of glitch art / aesthetics.

(3) Special consideration should be given to concepts in which typography and glitch are brought into a special reflective relationship, comparable to emblematics.

(4) Cross-genre sketches, performances, sound interventions and installations that have integrated the glitch as a meaningful element are also welcome, also glitch references to art movements such as Fluxus, Dada, Collage etc.

Applications should include a description of the software used and, if relevant, the hardware, as well as a curriculum vitae with previous activities (artistic training, awards, exhibitions, publications). Extent: no more than two pages.

The submissions will be included in the current curatorial concepts for 2024.
