Call for Proposals

All About Him Project & Billboard Vision Contest

Are you contemporary visual artists who

  • know about ‘regular’ men today: the way they keep ‘appearances’ and manage ‘dys-appearances’?
  • still keen on making art in public spaces?
  • think that Gender debate is all-inclusive {includes ….men and male rights as much as anything else}?

… then chances are that you may make a dream contestant. This is why:

 

 Goethe - Institut Bulgariena & 39 Grama” Newspaper

are pleased to announce

the launch of the All About Him Project ,

the ‘visual’ end result of which will be 10 billboard visions produced and exhibited in the public spaces of Sofia downtown area in the fall of 2008.

The billboard campaign will be preceded by an open-air exhibition and a catalogue, featuring the wider selection of contestant billboard visions .

TOP TEN will feature the final {and finest} selection of billboard visions throughout this contest, chaired by a jury.

TOP TEN visions will feed the A-A-H ! Campaign to be launched in the downtown area of Sofia this fall.

In addition, PROJECT PARTNERS are planning to hold a touring exhibition and catalogue launch in the home countries of artists participating in this project given that successful working partnerships have been established throughout the project duration.
