Unlike unrealized architectural projects, which are frequently exhibited and circulated, unrealized artworks tend to remain unnoticed or little known. But perhaps there is another form of artistic agency in the partial expression, the incomplete idea, the projection of a mere intention? Agency of Unrealized Projects (AUP) seeks to document and display these works, in this way charting the terrain of a contingent future.
Though the state of being unrealized implies the potential for realization, not all projects are intended to be carried out. In other instances, artists deliberately leave works incomplete, to record very interesting "failures" or experiments. Other planned projects involve consciously utopian, non-utilitarian, and conceptual spaces that were not made available for realization. Whether censored, forgotten, postponed, impossible, or rejected, unrealized projects form a unique testament to the speculative power of non-action.
You are invited to contribute your own unrealized projects to AUP's growing archive. Contributions can include text (DOC) and image files (two JPEGs or PDFs up to 2MB each), and can be submitted online at http://www.e-flux.com/aup/. Please include one paragraph describing your project.
Submission deadline: May 25, 2011
The Agency of Unrealized Projects (AUP) will be opening a temporary office in Basel this June, comprising of an archive of unrealized art projects. This will present projects collected through this open call and those collated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Guy Tortosa following several years of international research conducted in the late 90s. AUP follows the exhibition of the book project Unbuilt Roads: 107 Unrealized Projects, presented as a public archive at e-flux in 2009.
AUP is a project of e-flux in collaboration with the Serpentine Gallery devised by Julieta Aranda, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Julia Peyton-Jones and Anton Vidokle.

Somethingness: Ways of Seeing and Building, a project of CityStudioSTL, is informed by the words and practice of visiting artist Theaster Gates, Jr., who will be in residence at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts and in partnership with the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts. During this intensive, 3-week design-build course, students will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with Gates on a site-specific project in St. Louis' Hyde Park that combines conversation, construction, and community engagement. The cultural constructs of ritual, community, and race will inform all work, inspiring projects that echo the history of the site, while addressing the needs of the community through architecture, the arts, and social science.
Students will gain an understanding of design methods that arise out of cultural research while learning to translate small-scale design investigations into real, inhabitable spaces.

The MAPS – Arts in Public Spheres Master program is a 2-year degree in the visual arts, addressing artists and professionals wishing to question the contemporary artist's relation to the public sphere.
The course offers both practical and theoretical platforms for considering the public sphere in a pluri-disciplinary perspective. It combines a focus on the students' artistic practice and research projects, workshops offering practical experience in realising projects and interventions in the public sphere, yearly seminars contextualising the students' participation in group and solo exhibitions, and study trips. The objective is to consider how art addresses different publics, the nature of public participation and collaborative production, approaching a critical analysis of space, and finally the role of the exhibition and curating in the above questions.
Located in the Valais region of Switzerland, the striking natural environment and its location, away from the country's major urban centres, provide an ideal site for detailed on-the-ground studies in the following areas: environmental and land art, socially-engaged and community projects, site-specific artistic and curatorial interventions in the public space, art and the natural sciences, artistic research practice, and work on the dialectic between periphery and centre.
MAPS - Arts in Public Spheres is part of Master of Arts HES-SO in Fine Arts, a program that has been designed around three sites: the Haute Ecole d'Art du Valais (ECAV) in Sierre, the Haute Ecole d'Art et de Design in Geneva (HEAD) and the Ecole Cantonale d'Art in Lausanne (ECAL) and is an integral part of the "Swiss Master in Fine Arts Platform", a national collaborative programme involving all the Swiss art schools.

A new sequel of the CITIES EXHIBITION series produced by the Ethnographic and Art Museum – Birzeit University is set this year in the city of Nablus "Between Ebal and Gerzim". The exhibition is curated by Vera Tamari and Yazid Anani. Visual artists are encouraged to submit proposals for contemporary artistic interventions in the city based on the concept summarized below.
CITIES EXHIBITION is a project that attempts to draw attention to a variety of relationships between people and place and time, keeping the cadence and uniqueness of each city, moving from the past to the present through the narrative of time. The idea of the project is beyond just the stereotypical representations of nostalgia and folklore, it is by itself an attempt to putting in juxtaposition, past and contemporary visual and cultural evidence, not only to affirm the uniqueness of those cities, but to challenge the issues of memory, identity and change as well.
Nablus 'Neapolis', the new city of Vespasian; the Shechem of Abraham and Sara in the biblical land of Canaan; a city that has witnessed its destruction and resurrection twenty two times flanked by its guardians mount Gerzim and Ebal. Nablus of the Abbasids and Ottomans, a Palestinian city that stubbornly withstood wars, resisted occupation, Nablus ‘Jabal el Nar’, is where present and history coexist; and where cultures intertwine leaving traces of splendor and change on architecture, art, cuisine, and social structure.
Application deadline extended until:
15 May 2011

From August 18 to August 21, 2011, this year’s art and culture festival BEGEHUNGEN will address the issue of art and responsibility. Keeping with the theme “You Are Leaving the Area of Responsibility” artists of every genre are invited to apply until May 15, 2011.
The artist is in the dock. The high tribunal of art asks him/her to defend his/her art. He/She is accused of being fully abdicated from his/her responsibility as an artist. Further is she/he blamed for thoughtlessness in his/ her actions.
BEGEHUNGEN asks for the make-up of an artist’s responsibility in a society. Can art assume responsibility for anything at all? Art as such is indeed undefined. It can be regarded as an empty concept granting every artist the possibility to create any content possible through his/her actions. Or is the answer to the concept of art solely to be drawn from the fluidity of supply and demand on a culture’s art market?
This year’s BEGEHUNGEN will take place at a former prison, the JVA Kaßberg in Chemnitz. The centrally located facility offers an exhibition space of 4000m². Empty prison cells (app. 8 m²), prison wings, former administrative offices (25-30 m²) and a spacious inner courtyard offer ample room for an aesthetic experiment in an environment that is steeped in history. Temporary access to this facility is kindly granted by Staatsbetrieb Sächsisches Immobilien- und Baumanagement (SIB).
In order to take part in the event you need to fill in the online application form until May 15, 2011:
Please enclose no more than five samples of your work with your application.Please note the requirements for your digital attachments: Size max 10 MB; Resolution max. 2000×2000 pixel; Format: JPEG. The applicant certifies that he is the creator of the work(s) submitted.

This edition will include: an international seminar for artists and theorists open to the general public; a forum for art theory and practice researchers who will present their work at the Symposium's critical sessions; and two artist workshops.
Researchers' papers in the fields of theory and artistic practice on the following topics are welcome:
1- Power, knowledge and economy: new formats
When market has become integrated into biopolitics, thought and action capacity are reevaluated by means of new formats, which escape from fixed disciplines and identities (in production, investigation, pedagogy, display and communication).
2- Performing citizenship
How to trick symbolic pressure? What kind of power can we still find in breaches and discontinuities (of time, space, knowledge, affection or work) in order to catch sight of the future of a new citizenship?
Applicants are requested to submit their documentation as follows by 16 May 2011:
- By e-mail: download the Registration form, fill in and send it with your paper (in .doc or .pdf) to email@example.com
- By post: enclose the completed registration form and the printed project (applications received at the CA2M after 9 May will not be considered).

The Diogene group of artists, based in Turin, Italy, is promoting the international competition “Diogene urbanbivouac”, open to Italian and foreign artists. The residency proposes a brand new approach to art. The residency also intends to stimulate dialogue among artists, with the focus on in-depth comprehension of the poetic artistic work.
The “Diogene urbanbivouac” Residence project is the result of a joint effort by a group of artists. They share their ideas concerning the relationship between art and society, the role of the artist, and art as a form of knowledge. They also make themselves available to other artists, thus activating a shared collaboration with them.
One to three participants will be selected by a committee formed by artists making up the Association's management. The period of residence will have a maximum duration of three to nine weeks. The organization will provide participants with all the logistical and economic support necessary for the realization of their projects and will work to create a network of relationships with institutions and actors of the territory of contemporary art.
The invited artists, while in the city, will reside inside the Tram designed and built by the group Diogenes and will have a kit that will ensure self-sufficiency of the module housing (a 12-volt solar panel, a stove and a gas stove, a portable toilet).

We showcase independent films of all length and genres in their original languages and subtitled in English, with topics pertinent to the various Regent Park communities such as urbanization, community activism, immigrant experiences, inner city issues, cultural identity and multicultural relationships. In addition, each year we program films for Grade 1-8 addressing themes of difference, racial diversity, bullying, gender identity, poverty, health, and other issues relevant to youth. Regent Park residents are encouraged to create media works, through our free professional training workshops, and engage in debates through our panel discussions.
Annually, films made by Regent Park residents are highlighted in our Family Program and in our Community Stories: Youth Media Art Program on Opening Night, supporting self-representation and engaging dialogue with guest youth filmmakers from other parts of the World. This year, we are putting particular emphasis on fictional feature and short length films from the Asian & African Diaspora.

culturia is twofold: an art residency and a non-material collection.
Strategically declining in its approach pure studio practice, culturia invites artists to present projects in close relation between process and presentation.
The main point of the program is to enhance the internal development of the artist during the short-term residency, what can be more valuable than a production of new objects.
Following this vision culturia has opened, parallel to realization of the artists proposal, a construction of a document that seeks for the understanding of an ideal point of view on art. Here approach and medium are chosen by artist as long as the statement remains “visible” to others.
The non-material collection is used with agreement of artists to safeguard a record of their singular point of view. Gathered material will be used for retrospective exhibitions and other eligible events.
- Accommodation fee: 225 € per month + 100 € of deposit
residency period: 1st August – 31st October / culturia is a residency program based Berlin
Brief introduction of culturia
culturia builds its networks since 2005 and has progressively changed from a residency using temporary spaces in Berlin to develop into an experimental place where the practice of exploring artistic process became the concept.
- Artists and researchers. No restrictions on media.
Deadline for application
- Applications for residency: 1st August – 31st October will be accepted until 21st may of 2011 (closing time for applications - 6pm)

Group Affinity is a summer school and exhibition, taking place at Kunstverein München between 1–14 August 201, dedicated to self-organised practice and the notion of affinity in cultural production.
Group Affinity examines 'affinity' as a thesis for contemporary social movement and self-governed cultural production. Taking the form of a two-week summer school and a four-week exhibition, the project offers a diverse curriculum of five participatory faculties, run by the international groups: Chicago Boys, Grand Openings, Cinenova, Andreas Müller & Susanne Pietsch and Slavs and Tatars. Working within a wide range of disciplines and in modalities of research and action—from participatory architecture to performative actions, and (incongruous) translation to enactments of historic archives—these collectives share a common goal of accommodating inter-subjective alliance as their public significance.
Housing and hospitality will be offered to 30 applicants. All applications should be submitted before 30 May 2011.
