Open Call – BOUNDARIES
International photography festival Organ Vida is realizing its seventh edition on the theme of Boundaries this year. The festival opens the official international call for applications at the beginning of every year, and in 2015 the call for applications will begin on March 29 and end on May 1. The chosen finalists will exhibit their work in September at the Klovićevi Dvori Gallery in Zagreb. The author of the official festival theme text, Bojan Krištofić, explains the title and aim of Boundaries in terms of boundaries being the omnipresence of limitations in today’s world – from the boundaries between the private and the public sphere to the boundaries between physical activity and the spiritual and intellectual life or the relentless biological finiteness and the ultimate aspiration for immortality.
Boundaries are not limited solely to their physical nature, but also extend to the metaphorical aspects which keep realizing themselves on a particular line in reality which may be crossed only under certain circumstances. Boundaries can reflect the geopolitical reality of the Earth and of the many wars waged because of the existence of boundaries. Crossing a boundary is always a risk. However, the desire to cross boundaries is so deeply interwoven into human nature that negating the possibility to attempt a crossing is a direct act of violence upon human beings.
The theme of this year’s International photography festival Organ Vida titled Boundaries invites photographers and artists who express their ideas in the visual form of photography to think through the phenomenon of boundaries and to photographically express their perspectives and feelings about the omnipresent ways people cross boundaries, leave boundaries or shape moments in terms of boundaries.
The call for applications will last from March 29 until May 1, 2015. The chosen finalists will exhibit their works in September during the festival at the Klovićevi Dvori Gallery which will be the central location of this year’s festival. The festival will last for two full weeks, from September 3 until September 18, 2015.
