Shpilman Institute for Photography Grant Program

Founded in 2010, the Shpilman Institute for Photography is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support international scholarly research and artistic projects that advance the practices, uses, and effects of photography. The SIP programs encompass both historical and contemporary photography, with a special interest in its relationship to philosophy, and include public events such as conferences and panels, a grant program, publications, and a dynamic website for scholarly research and professional updates.
The Shpilman Institute for Photography was founded in 2010 when the field of photography was expanding at unprecedented rates and the critical need for deeper scholarship and contemplation of its social, philosophical, artistic, and cultural implications became evident.
The SIP began by organizing conferences, panels, and talks in Israel, and supporting scholarly and artistic activities locally and globally, with colleagues from such leading institutions as the Jeu de Paume, the Museum of Modern Art, and Parsons The New School for Design. In 2010 The SIP announced its Annual Grant Program that has awarded $120,000 to over a dozen researchers from around the world.
The SIP Grant Program supports research on photography and the merger of theory and photographic practice by funding significant projects by emerging and established artists, curators, and organizations at strategic points in their development. Thay concentrate on projects that have a broad impact and are in dialogue with international art discourse.
The SIP operates via two grant programs: Research Grants for Academic Writing, and Funding for Exhibition-Related Research .
The announcement on the Exhibition-Related Research program will take place in September 2011. For additional details and questions please contact by email info@thesip.org or visit http://thesip.org/

Call for Works: Transmediale 2012: In/Compatible

International PhD workshop and conference, organised by Digital Aesthetics Research Centre/Centre for Digital Urban Living, Aarhus University, in partnership with the transmediale festival for art and digital culture, and Universität der Künste, Berlin.

Deadline: 31 August 2011
With the conceptual framework of in/compatible we are looking for artistic works in any genre and format that either explicitly or in more subtle ways engage the incompatible nature of contemporary technological cultures. We imagine that these works rather than anticipating resolution, address, accentuate and invest in the unresolved tensions across translocal media practices and systems. In particular we are calling for works that take us by surprise by not quite “fitting in“.
The selected works will form part of our exhibition as well as of our screening, performance and conference programme. While there will be no transmediale Award this year, works may be considered for the Vilém Flusser Residency Programme, taking the form of a 2 months artistic research residency run by tm and UdK in Berlin.
Works taken into consideration for the programme can be related to the following keywords and areas:
dissensual aesthetics, hacktivism, operating systems, speculative realisms, queer technologies, strange ontologies, displacements, ecologies, psychedelia, glitches, spam, media-archaeologies, technological obsolescence, haunted media, reverse remediations, the untimely, erotics, ambivalences, tools, law, anxieties, confusions, violence, obscurities, junk, addictions, restlessness, destructions, attractions, accidents, isolation, punk, surrealisms, aggressiveness, the uncommon, frustrations, spiritualities, risks, dubious calculations, psychosis, uneven structures, crimes.
