The organizers of the IntraRegionale soundart festival 2021 invite sound artists to apply for their open call for sound artists. The installations will be open for public for about a month, each installation will be set at a different and special spot within the region of the German city Hannover such as a multi story car park, a network of footpaths, a recycling yard or a monastery.
The installations don't have to follow an overall theme and there are no requirements in terms of the method or materials used in the installations. A lot freedom and creativity is allowed in the installations and the only requirement is that the end result has to be site-specific . Also all kinds of staged composes are excluded from this open call. The organizers have announced that the sites won't have an internet connection.
The eleven selected artists each will get a fee of 5,500 EUR, around -15% will be deducted for artists who are not living in Germany to pay the foreigner tax. The artists have to install their installations between 1 May and 6 June 2021, the installations will be open for public from 6 June to 18 July 2021. The deadline for this open call is 30 November 2020.

"Culture includes not only culture and arts, but also the way of life and system of values. In this sense culture becomes the major power for intellectual renewal and human perfection." (European Council Report on European Cultural Policy)
