Call for proposals – Monument to Cold War Victory – deadline 1 November 2012

This project examines the enduring genre of war monuments, memorials, and institutionally framed and commissioned artworks.

A select number of finalists will be awarded a stipend and the opportunity to further develop their proposal for an institutional exhibition. The submitter of the winning proposal will be awarded a cash prize, and their concept will be implemented and installed in a publicly accessible location, to be determined, in the United States.

All submissions must be made through the link below. Submissions should include:

– a one-page narrative text on your proposed work and its relationship to the legacy of the Cold War, the notion of “victory,” and its reevaluation (if any) of the monument form
-a visual schema in the form of three images and an artist CV.

It is a conceptual project by the artist Yevgeniy Fiks, taking the form of an open-call, international competition for a public, commemorative work of art.

The Committee for Tacit History is an international curatorial collective and research body dedicated to furthering interdisciplinary, practice-based investigations in history and visual culture.
