**Seeking performers/collaborators/artists/writers working within the conceptual remit of PARTICIPATION for a live, transatlantic broadcast event in late January 2012. DEADLINE: December 16th 2011**
Rhythms of Time Sharing’s first live event will take the form of a collaboration between two artist collectives – KIOSK (London) and Vox Populi (Philadelphia). This one-off event will be held at the Vox Populi space in Philadelphia formed of live performances in the gallery and nocturnal performances streamed across the Atlantic from KIOSK’s studio in South East London.
This will be the second installment of KIOSK’s ongoing research project, Rhythms of Time-Sharing (RoTS), which explores the current shift in contemporary art practice toward participatory and performative work. Having initiated the project at the Barbican Centre as part of the OFF MODERN LATE, where we co-wrote and documented a live, written trialogue, we will extend this mode of in-collaboration under the premise that COLLABORATION IS SOCIAL. Drawing on Keller Easterling’s poetic analytic of modulations and forces in geo-political activities, KIOSK will utilise the shifts and cohesions of different spaces and time zones, and posit these against the ascendancy of participation as a utopian model for artistic and theoretical pursuit.
To submit work for consideration, send a CV (2 sides max), a statement of intent (500 words max) and links to website/blog/online portfolio to email@example.com. Works that deal with participation, performance and art writing are of particular interest.
DEADLINE: December 16th 2011
KIOSK is a practice-led research collective born of a combined interest in relational geographies, critical spatial practices, micropolitics and contemporary art practice. KIOSK’s research serves to develop an understanding of the multiplicities and multidisciplinarity within contemporary Visual Culture and explores these through diverse methodologies. KIOSK formed through cross-disciplinary studies at Goldsmiths, University of London in June 2010, and is based in South East London with outposts in Bogota and Berlin. www.kioskcollective.org
