Call For Papers: “Real Time Identity” @UNDER_the_RADAR_Vienna
How the interaction with our image of the past and our idea of the future shape the work in film, media, art, and connected hybrids at our current moment.
is the 9th Austrian interdisciplinary film/media festival/conference, intersecting animation, art, experimental media, exploratory filmmaking, and digital culture.
Scheduled from 1-5 July 2019, Vienna, Austria
This event is combining the inspiring opportunities of an academic conference with the possibilities of a film festival. Since 2011 we are transcending conceptual boundaries to connect international and local artists, scholars, researchers,
communicators, and distributors. Embracing fine-arts and creative enterprises, we also like to describe the converging function of our event a “confluence,” and we are open to suggestions for new elements and formats to be included.
We invite you to come together to exchange, communicate, network and enjoy stimulating art/work/research/people. Recent participants include (among many more) renowned individuals like Maureen Furniss (US), Pierre Hébert (CA), Suzanne Buchan (UK), Olivier Cotte (F), Eliška Děcká (CZ), Paul Wells (UK), Madi Piller (CA), Jürgen Hagler (A), Chunning Guo (CN), Nikita Diakur (DE), Nöel Palazzo (ES), Tomm Moore (IE), Maike Höhne (DE), Bonny Mitchell (US), József Fülöp (HU), Chi-Sui Wang (TW), Martin Reinhart (A), Olga Bobrowska (PL) - etc.
Submit an abstract in English for twenty-minute academic presentations.
All presentations must be thematically related to this year’s topic.
Sketched ideas for concepts are in the below-included section, but we are also open to additional suggestions.
For each proposal, the applicant is required to fill out a separate online entry form.
Only correctly filled out online-forms will be accepted.
Duration of call: 7 February to 7 April 2019
Deadline for submissions: 7 April 2019
The topic of UNDER_the_RADAR_2019 is “Real Time Identity”
This covers conceptual, theoretical, artistic and practical approaches, experiences and discussions of rather abstract terms like “time”, “reality”, ”existence”, “memory”, “identity”, “interpretation”, “anticipation”, “integrity”, “authenticity”, “factuality”,
“heritage”, “community”, “projection”, “distortion” - and connected or related notions.
The connection - even in a comprehensive and open understanding - to animation and experimental media art should be clearly recognizable. Our subheading:
How the interaction with our image of the past and our ideas of the future shape the work in film, media, art, and connected hybrids at our current moment. - points out our interest in submissions that combine academic analysis and research with real-world applications and uses. A connection to documenting or documentary type (or related) work is possible and also the (re-)interpretation of historical artifacts, work, or activities. You may investigate how aspects of our understanding of time affect structures, aesthetics, narratives, styles, and tones of sequential visual compositions. Animation and experimental media art may be understood in a range between very traditional and highly hypothetical and suggestive ways. Based on the interdisciplinary and inviting nature of this conference we like to encourage applicants to submit proposals that will initiate
discussion and analytical exchange among participants.
Details about schedules, locations, participants, collaborators, contributors, partners, supporters, organizers, events, etc. will be made available online at our website “www.under-radar.com” as soon as they are available.
Information about acceptance or rejection of your proposal will be available before 1 May 2019.
In case you would like to propose a different item for our program, like a workshop, masterclass, panel, film-program, etc. - please contact us at email@example.com
