*Open Call –*
*video works for LIAF 2008*
*Lofoten International Art Festival* invites you to send video material
for their forthcoming screening program. The program will be shown on
different sites throughout the Lofoten Islands as well as at the
"transit- areas and ports" to Lofoten Islands. The festival opens 14th
June and closes 7th September 2008.
The co-curators of LIAF 2008, Taru Elfving and Rickard Borgström, aim to
create an event that involves the local inhabitants and the
participating artists in a dialogue around the questions of sustainable
future and expanded community. More than a thematic frame these notions
give the curators and the artists an ethos and, furthermore, inform the
structure and modes of practice of the coming festival. The festival
hopes to act as an opening, initiating encounters and shared visions in
the present of the yet-to-come.
If you are interested, please send us a DVD and a short description of
the work(s) to
LIAF- open call, Post Box 285, NO- 8301 Svolvær, Norway
*Deadline for submissions is 25th Feburary 2008.*
The video works should not be longer than 10 minutes.

Some information on Lofoten islands and the festival:
Lofoten is an archipelago with a unique and fragile ecosystem located in
the Northern Atlantic Ocean above the Arctic Circle. It is becoming
increasingly charged as a political arena due to the national resources,
fish and oil. Simultaneously the expanding tourist industry is making
its mark on the islands and the local community.
LIAF (Lofoten International Art Festival) is a contemporary art festival
that takes place every second summer at Lofoten islands in Northern
Norway. The festival is entering a new phase with an emphasis on
site-specificity and commissioned work. For further information on the
festival see www.liaf.no <http://www.liaf.no/>
