Call for Proposals 2018-2019 : POST-
Folie/Culture is a contemporary arts organization that fosters reflection on mental health issues through unorthodox avenues of artistic research. As an arts organization without an exhibition space or production equipment, we must constantly reinvent the notion of the contemporary arts space.
It seems everything today is “post-something”—the term is truly the darling of the conceptual world. Does something seem obsolete or old-fashioned? Just tack on a “post” and presto! Post-truth, post-deinstitutionalization, post-traumatic, post-avant-garde, post-colonialism… where will it end? We seem to live constantly under the yoke of a hegemonic idea that was supposed to be reserved for radical departures and paradigm shifts. Today, rather than giving a name to something new, “post” seems to simply pass judgment on the past while pushing us toward a dead end.
Folie/Culture is pleased to invite you, not into the “post-post” era, but rather into the a-POST- era. Together let’s throw off the shackles of POST- and instead find new names for the present. Artists and other denizens of the crazysphere: To your stations! Let our every proposition be a manifesto, constructing our reality by embodying an aesthetic, representing a social imaginary, or simply shaking loose the conventional wisdom killing our souls.
