Open Call for Artists / Social Criticism and Space Alteration

Periscope´s 2019 program will cover the themes social criticism and space alteration. Both austrian and international artists are encouraged to apply for either topics.


1) Social Criticism: Artists question societies with different expectations. One is that artists question societies in critical distance. With its open call periscope is interested in this approach. How up-to-date is it today? How can societies be looked on? Which aspects of societies are artists interested in? From which point of view do they talk about social embedment? Which social concerns exist?


2) Space Alteration: A central theme of periscope are space- and site-specific approaches. How can the periscope-project-space be modified? What role does periscope´s location play? How can artitstic processing of location effects look like? Which artistic impulses can come from periscope to its environment?

• documentation of the artistic or curatorial work
