Onassis AiR invites artists, curators, designers, activists, collectives, educators, legal advocates, performance makers, economists, architects, filmmakers, and practitioners from any other medium of expression or discipline to apply for the second iteration of The School of Infinite Rehearsals: Movements V–VIII, running between September 2021 and June 2022.
Conceived as a collective research program and continuation of the individual strands we introduced in our first year of existence, The School of Infinite Rehearsals brings together an interdisciplinary group of participants to exchange ideas and practices around two research topics we find urgent to address and are looking to further explore collectively. For the second year of The School of Infinite Rehearsals, we want to look inwardly as well as outwardly, considering the spatial and temporal structures that affect the ways we live, act, come together. How do we relate to others and how do we organize our decisions? What modes of governance do we adhere to and how do we shape them? What economic systems do we choose to be complicit in and how much agency do we claim to implement radical alternatives? How do we institute knowledge and recognize our own institutional complacency or complicity?
In Fall 2021, Movements V & VI will collectively explore issues of governance through the lens of discourse on self-organization (Movement V) and institutions (Movement VI).
In Spring 2022, Movements VII & VIII will tackle economies by focusing on community economies (Movement VII) and philanthropy (Movement VIII).
Applications must be submitted by February 26, 2021, no later than 12pm Coordinated Universal Time (UTC+2). Learn more and apply at onassis.org/open-calls.
