The call to artists is aimed at a new generation which dedicates themselves to creative expression in public spaces. We have long walls, which will serve as a great background basis for new works to be produced. The murals will be integrated in KURA’s open air gallery. "Beyond Witten" is the theme for KURA2017.
Name materials and the quantity you expect to need in order to complete the project.
The deadline for the proposal is 13th February 2017.
You can send your proposal in print or digital format to:
. KURA 2017 .
06886 Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany
About the theme:
“Witten”, an old German word for “white”, could denounce former white-coated walls sitting by the shores of the Middle Elbe banks, Wittenberg. The picturesque conjecture KURA2017 will acquire next year is the analogy to a fresh start, an empty canvas, the sum of the full visible spectrum waiting to be manipulated into particular content. The association of Wittenberg with pristine new beginnings with a meaningful lighthouse (content), impressing from the distant memorial walls, has long since been wished for. Ten years have passed since the “Lutherdekade” (10 years preceding the 500th anniversary) started and the light is supposed to turn on at Wittenberg becoming a world-city Hotspot next year.

While brainstorming you should reflect on the implications of your artistic testimonial. We also invite you to gather the vision and valuable exchange experience with the other artists who will be working parallel at KURA.
Gather your friends/crew - a maximum of 4. The selected groups will have the opportunity to travel to Lutherstadt Wittenberg and elaborate a mural on collaboration basis within the national group.
Your proposal for “Beyond Witten” should reflect the group’s expressivity while sticking to the subject. You should consider the work you will be producing in Wittenberg as a powerful artistic artefact for your hometown.
We’ll document your production process and advertise it on social networks, where we invite everybody to share!
Each participant artist shouldn’t be older than 28 years and not less than 18. You should currently reside in a European Union country.
In the heart of the city of Lutherstadt Wittenberg, the participant artists will be staying at a hostel. The active production process will take place mainly in close vicinity to their residence.
The creation process will stick to the initial ideas, developed as the research process takes place. It is bound to the schedule and available funds.
The association Wbmotion e. V. will bear the total of financial expenses for: travels and transports, food, residence in the hostel, cultural activities as well as the materials for the artistic production. Each participant group needs will be attended through email and telephone.
The participants will be insured for the duration of the project. It is still necessary that each participant has an International Health Card - see conditions in the country’s health institutions.
The public events will take place on the 3rd of June 2017. The travels to Wittenberg - Germany - will occur one week before the live event. The travels back home will be immediately after the live event.
