Hi,

This is my first post to the list and I am glad to share with all of you 
this call for proposals related to the antiAtlas of borders.

The antiAtlas of borders is a transdisciplinary event that will take 
place between September, 30, 2013 and March, 1rst, 2014.

Bypassing cartography, at the crossroads of research and art, it offers 
a new approach of the mutations of borders and on the way they are 
experienced by people in the 21st century. The antiAtlas is an outcome 
of the transdisciplinary research project led by IMéRA (Institut 
Méditerranéen de Recherches Avancées - Mediterranean Institute of 
Advanced Research) on the mutations of contemporary territorial 
configurations (2011-2013). By bringing together artists, human 
scientists, hard scientists and professionals, it aims to 
decompartmentalize fields of knowledge.

In the frame of the antiAtlas of borders,  a call for proposals is 
launched for an exhibition at La compagnie in Marseille, from December 
13, 2013 to March 1rst, 2014.

The curator and the artistic and scientific committee are looking for 
*various artworks proposals (net.art, photo, video, testimonies, 
documentaries, video games…) expressing different ways to experience 
borders.* Proposals from migrants, professionals and artists are 
welcome, in order to contribute to prepare a resolutely participatory 
exhibition.

*The antiAtlas will relies on five different supports:*
1 : an international symposium open to researchers, artists, 
institutional actors, and to the public at large. It will take place in 
Aix en Provence, from the 30th of September to the 2d of October 2013)
2 : a first art-science exhibition at the Musée des Tapisseries in Aix 
en Provence (from 1rst October to 3 November 2013)
3 : a second art-science exhibition at La Compagnie, a place dedicated 
creation and art in Marseille (from 13 December 2013 to 1srt mars 2014)
4 : an artistic and scientific web site that will complete and 
perpetuate the work done and presented through the research program and 
the two exhibitions
5 : an art science printed volume (winter 2014)

_*CALL FOR PROPOSALS*_

The call for proposals is opened in order to select original productions 
for the exhibition that will take place at la Compagnie, from 13

nature, the antiAtlas of Borders offers multiple levels of involvement 
and participation. Visitors will engage with a variety of transmedia 
applications within a space punctuated with interactive sculptures, 
installations and videos. This playful exhibition will stimulate the 
public through the interaction with robots, drones and video games. This 
is an exhibition to engage with: try it yourself!
