Call for art works: NOTHING TO DECLARE – deadline 30 August 2010

call for art works: NOTHING TO DECLARE. International Contemporary Art
Exhibition, Manila, Philippines, October 25 – November 25 2011

Nothing to Declare will revolve around the following interrelated themes:
1. Shifting geographies emerging from diasporas, migrations, overseas work
2. Shifting identities arising from movement, mobility, displacement, exchange; implying a sense of rooted-ness and slippage, identification and estrangement, familiarity and alienation, entitlement and distance
3. Shifting spaces, connoting not just physical relocation, but mental and spiritual dis/position, as well as dislocations, gaps and silences that take place in immediate, virtual and hyper-realities
4. Shifting positions, implying an appreciation of difference and a willingness to dialogue, work together, listen and engage.
5. Shifting power relations, connoting multiple flows and streams of choices, constraints, control and conditions of creation, dissemination and reception
6. Shifting possibilities, connoting transformations and breaking grounds where marginality of having nothing to declare – IS source of intervention and strength, of loss as well as triumphs
