Dear artists, dear friends,
Sonica 2010 is now accepting contributions for its next edition.

* * *Call for Entries* * *
Visual artists, VJs, Video artists, sound producers, audio live acts,
DJs, multimedia artists, theorists, and technicians are invited to
participate at Sonica 2010.

This year, Sonica will take place in October. Sonica is conceived as a
showcase of the yearly program of MoTA Museum of Transitory Art.
Sonica is an experimental festival, which questions ways of
representation, exhibition formats, crossing borders between art and
theory, object and performance and this year specially the virtual and
the real.

With the theme real virtuality, Sonica will start a discussion
regarding the situation of production, representation and funding. To
which extent has the break of virtuality into reality influenced
conditions of production, representation of artworks and artists and
how does it change funding matrixes will be the topics addressed at
MoTA Sea Station residency in the summer, during production
residencies in Ljubljana and at the festival with at the exhibition,
the round tables and artist talks. But most importantly, Sonica will
question how have these transitions affected the content of art
produced in the past years and which alternative models are introduced
by artists and cultural workers.

Each of the invited artists will participate in at least two of the modules:
exhibition/ performance, round table, artist talk/ production/ residency.
