Conditions of Participation
“Begehungen 2012“ is organised by the non-profit society Begehungen e.V.
In order to take part in the event you need to fill in the online application form until May 20, 2012. Please enclose no more than five samples of your work with your application.Please note the requirements for your digital attachments: Size max 10 MB; Resolution max. 2000x2000 pixel; Format: JPEG. The applicant certifies that he is the creator of the work(s) submitted.
Artists who work in the following sectors are invited to apply: painting, graphic, sculpture, photography, performance, audio visual, digital art, street art, installation. Other forms of art might be suitable but are subject to accreditation by the organisers. All of the submitted artworks should address the general topic.
All applications will be evaluated by an assigned jury. The jury is to decide the number and formation of the finalists. Applicants will know by the end of June whether they have been selected or not. An individual statement of justification will not be issued.
No charges or fees for renting etc. will incur during the festival. Unfortunately, the organisers are not able to pay for any production or installation costs. Technical support and tools can only be made available in justified exceptional cases and only if an e-mail is sent to us early enough in advance.
by August 15, 2012 at the latest, all works of art should be installed by the artist in person. At least seven days after the end of the exhibition, the artwork also needs to be removed. It is of great benefit, if every artist could personally attend the exhibition in order to support the dialogue between visitors and all the other artists present at the exhibition. Furthermore, we cannot guarantee a permanent supervision of your artwork throughout the festival. Therefore, we ask every artist to supervise his/her exhibition space on their own or through a personally assigned representative.
The organiser will provide the exhibition space and also prepare and display the labelling of the artwork. Each exhibition space will be assigned by the organiser. Any artist with special requirements is asked to get in touch with the organiser early enough in advance to negotiate any further possibilities. As concerning the labelling of the artwork, every artist is asked to submit all necessary information at least 15 working days in advance.
The organisers cannot be made liable in case of theft of the artworks, theft of technical equipment of the participants, for occurring risks during (de)installation, for transportation problems, and damage that is caused by fluctuation of current during the festival.
All participating artists authorise the organiser to record, publish, save and distribute photographs of the artworks and personal details of the artist for: Public Relation purposes, press and media coverage, documentation, catalogue of the exhibition, posters etc. In any case the organiser will adhere to the copyright.
