Everything you need to know

By 1991 the USSR closed the doors of its Nuclear Warhead Storage facility and a military base near the historic town of Juterbog within the Brandenburg district. Thirty-one years later, we reopen the doors of the soviet-titled OBJEKT 4000 nuclear bunker to welcome artistic dissent and the antithesis of what this space was designed for.

We now invite artists to interact with the space and its history to re-imagine our shared togetherness during the current turbulent times through an intersectional lens and dynamic collaboration.

Open Call Year 0:

Everything you need to know

Theme: Reclamation

Our three-day curated group show aimed for the early fall 2022, welcomes artwork in response to themes of political diaspora and reclamation of space, as well as the broad spectrum of frictions associated with the physical, mental and emotional container that OBJEKT4000 represents today.

We are embracing solo works and collaborative site-specific projects that aspire to recondition the space through a critical lens and unexpected and curious perspectives.

We encourage the artists to ask themselves:

What is the role of an artist in times of recurring crisis and wartime?

TICKETS

What is an artist’s weapon in the face of these events?

Everything you need to know

How can an artwork translate the current and past aggregated terrains that were deemed a war machine into a productive ground for re-envisioning the world we inhabit at present and the future we want to build together?

The notion of space

bears weight both historically, emotionally, and sociopolitically.

The gravity around this should be treated with integrity.

In terms of repurposing the space, the artists will be allowed to interpret and freely display their theoretical and practical ideas through a critical lens

We give preference to artists working with materials and mediums that create zero permanent waste within our exhibition location. We welcome artworks that are intended for the bunker and military case and can stay in space year-round

Our production and logistic crew will help artists handle spatial objects, mu. These multi-channel audio-visual pieces need to be hung from load-bearing walls and ceilings, and outdoor works (if semi-permanent/permanent).

OBJEKT 4000 is located approximately 1.5 hours south of Berlin via public transportation and by car. For heavy materials and tools, transportation will be provided.

We are a non-for-profit and volunteer-run community of creatives, and this year's event at bunker is the first in the series of art projects and events we envision for the future.

As a young organization with a non-hierarchical structure and radical financial transparency, this year, we will only be able to cover the costs related to providing selected equipment (please review our technical rider) and cover art handling and logistics.

At this moment, we do not have a defined artist payment plan. We are currently in conversation with non-corporate sponsors to be able to honor the participant artists' works.
