THIS CALL TIES IN WITH THE THEME OF THE EXHIBITION I REMEMBER EARTH
The big questions informing our 2019–2020 programming include the broadening of the mind and opening up onto questions of ecology, feminism, gender, and decoloniality through the lens of artistic production. In the Fall of 2019, the exhibition I Remember Earth brings together a collection of works of art that propose a way of relating to the Earth as a living being and to earth as matter. The featured works echo the diversity of contemporary debates on environmental issues. Driven by a keen awareness of the fragility of the natural order, these practices outline a plea of intercession for the environment and a summons to heed the heartbeat of the world and get in touch with the secret life that animates it.
Words like mutation, transformation, and transition are thus applied to artistic practices and to the institutions that make them possible. As an art center conceived to facilitate crosspollination of ideas and to act as a space welcoming experimentation in the ruins of modernity, the MAGASIN des Horizons has launched an unlikely call for rituals.
Under the umbrella of artistic practice, we include artists/mediums, mediators, and/or healers. We seek to host practices that foster participation in rites of passage from an ordered, rational world to a world of entanglement, meshing, and interweaving, as well as aim to overcome the insularity of the segregated and overly specialized art disciplines.
Earthly rituals may take on any form imaginable:
– healing, relief
– passage, initiation
– intercession, supplication
– pagan, shamanic, daily
– collective, individual
– ancestral, contemporary
– cyclical, one-off
