Call for Entries: Cheers for Fears Traumformate

Cheers for Fears supports an interdisciplinary discursive event

german version

From mid-November 2020 to February 2021, Cheers for Fears Traumformate gives art and art theory students and other actors in the Junge Szene NRW the opportunity to organise one of three events with the financial and planning support of Cheers for Fears. The aim of each format should be to bring together fellow students of different disciplines.

Though the pandemic determines this winter, Cheers for Fears is looking for ideas for an exchange format for young artists and theorists. Students from different universities can come together in physical space or digitally for a joint exhibition, a research laboratory, an interactive performance, discussion or other formats in order to receive new artistic impulses or to try out a new artistic format in unknown territory.

The Cheers for Fears initiative thrives on the commitment and creations of students and young artists in NRW. That’s why this format responds to the inspirations and impulses of the Cheers community. For choosing the small projects, the letter of motivation and the interdisciplinary nature of the projects are important to us. It is also noteworthy that the project should not be too labour-intensive, appropriate to the budget, and an open call should take place to enable various interested parties to participate in the format.
