Open call for participation in public art exhibition

'AA2 / Katharina has paid us a visit, but she didn't stay too long' is an 
exhibition organized by med-i-kids and CSDVA, Zagreb.

Main theme is Appropriation in Art, aka AA2.

Host space is Alternative Cultural Center Medika in Zagreb, where at any 
given moment of day and night there is certain number of visitors. The 
exhibition is envisaged as  one big hybrid organism composed of many smaller 
site-specific installations and artworks. Specificity of the space as 
ex-factory of medicaments and its very rustic and ruined condition dictates 
some of the guidelines in curating the exhibition. Medika is place ideal for 
street art, public art, graffities, murals, but not exclusively.

What we want to see are:

- projects that creatively engage with audience with the humorous artistic 
intention behind the artwork

- appropriation art, in the best use of its term - art which respects all 
four cornerstones of fair use term

- art works as reinterpretations or 'Hommage' to an artist who really 
influenced your work

- art works made of recycled items

Media: No media restrictions

Concept of the exhibition allows that artists whose work will be selected 
for the show can visit the AKC Medika by their own means. Others will be 
invited to collaborate online with med-i-kids art group and instruct them 
how to realize their works. In general, artists are responsble for sending 
us their work. We can compensate postal costs till some extend, on basis 
first comes-first served. All participating artists will  receive full-color 
catalogue of the show and DVD, which will be made during the production of 
the exhibition.
