MoCC is inviting proposals for the commissioning of two dynamic public encounters that explore urgent questions related to the nexus of data-trade-place-values. We are interested in receiving applications for remote interventions as well as Exeter based working processes, and are looking for artists who can demonstrate both a critical engagement with digitally networked processes, and experience of making in a social context.
The commissions are co-hosted with Exeter Phoenix , Exeter Library and Devon Fab Lab and have been developed in partnership with Furtherfield. The Exeter Phoenix commission will be presented concurrently with the exhibition Sean Lynch: The Weight of the World, a partnership between Spacex, Exeter Phoenix and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM). The second commission draws on the facilities and expertise at Devon Fab Lab and its context, the only maker space in the UK to be situated in a public library.
Final art work will be shared as part of the Exeter iteration of MoCC during May 2016, alongside a programme of film screenings, walkshops/workshops and public discussions about potential ethical futures of trade and exchange in late capitalism.
Deadline for proposals 7th March 2016
