Open Call APRIA 2020: Redefining Oikos

Where do we feel at home?

21 October 2020

Until today the Covid-19 pandemic urges us to ‘stay safe and stay home’. What or who determines what home is and what does it mean to be at home? It’s a complex concept and certainly cannot be associated with safety for everyone. For APRIA’s new Open Call, we welcome contributions that delve into the complex meaning of oikos, re-examining concepts of home and the tension between safe and harmful spaces in times of crisis. We look forward to your artistic reflections, propositions, guides, kits, and research! Deadline for submission 7 December 2020:

APRIA is our online platform that publishes all forms of research through the arts: essays, image and sound contributions. This call follows on Staying with the Trouble. How to Tell Stories in the Time of Ecological Crisis? of which the contributions by ArtEZ students are distributed monthly since September 2020. Both calls were made in collaboration with our board consisting of:
