Open call
Deadline: 1 June 2017

The W:OW Project – We Are One World -   http://wow.engad.org
is a global networking project to be realised between 2017 and 2022 in an
exchange between virtual and physical space (online/offline) including
artists, curators and cultural institutions from all parts on the globe.

The project initiated & curated by Agricola de Cologne, director of
artvideoKOELN, is dealing with the most essential question of human
existence, eg. the survival of the human species on planet EARTH - to be
released in different presentation formats – a festival (video) - W:OW Art
Film & Video Festival - travelling around the globe and the virtual and a
physical exhibition open for a wide range of artistic media  - moving,
interactive and static images – non-visual: soundart (video, netart,
multimedia, VR, games, photography, digital image, soundart etc).

While "The W:OW Project" core does not include physical objects, the
presentation format of the „exhibition“, however, is offering the chance
for invited curators to do so.

Participating is free of charge.

There is not doubt, that the current human civilization is about to destroy
itself through itself. Many ancient civilizations were erased because they
were extensively exploiting and misusing the natural resources destroying
their nutrition fundament and own living habitat, the same way as we do on
a much more radically global scale increasingly since decades. Do we learn
from history?

Just some keywords: climate change, global warming, fresh water, military
conflicts on water resources, migration, transmigration, refugees, respect,
tolerance, new technologies, communicating media, populist and
ant-democratic movements, exploition of natural resources, globally acting
companies, habitable zones, future generations, global responsibility and
many more.

The sciences have proved: we all  - whereever we are living on Earth - have
the same one ancestor in Africa. It is not too late that we, eg. the whole
mankind  - sitting in the same boat have to take responsibility for each
other which is requiring the greatest common efforts to prevent the
collapse of the biological, ecological, social and cultural systems on
Earth, and save our planet as habitable not only for the living, but also
the future generations.

„The W:OW Project“ is inviting artists from all over the world working in
different media to reflect Present and Future of our planet as the place
where life as such, the amazing diversity of a magnificent nature and the
human species had the chance to arise, where this human species made such
incredible achievements during the civilisatory development until these
days based on humanity, empathy and creativity, expressed, for instance, in
art, the sciences and a free and open democratic society – We Are One
