call: Wake Up! – Climate Change
extended deadline: 24 December 2019
Call for entries
The Wake Up! Memorial
will be adding in 2020 a new section dedicated to the “climate change” to be presented online, as well as in physical space via curated screenings.
Artists working with audio-visual media are invited to submit works in the field of film/video and sonic art
on the topic – “Climate Change!” and preseving the natural environment on Earth for future generations..
As a term or catchword, “Climate Change” is ambivalent – it describes a process, development or state which can be reversible, as well as irreversible – reversible, this includes for an individual the option to take personally influence on one’s environment and prevent actively “the climate change” as an irreversible process or state – irreversible, it is too late to take any influence, and “climate change” means nothing else than the “Last Days” (of humanity, of the natural environment, the world as we know, etc). One has to accept the inevitable destiny. In its widest sense, “climate” can be understood as “environment”.
Short films/short videos may have a maximum duration of 10 minutes (exceptions possible) in many formats ranging from documentary via artvideo to experimental film.
