Calling artists for participation in the festival "UTOPIA"

The photographic group DIAFRAGMA 26 hosts a festival at the EMBROS Theatre (Athens, Psiri ) at the 2nd until the 4th  of February 2018, called: “UTOPIA”
We invite every Artist, who’s interested to join, with some of her/his work and send the application form (see at the end) including a photograph of her/his work, a description or the art piece itself. (e.g. a poem or a link for a video).
We will accept art pieces themed by: painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, music, dancing, video art, performance, short films, theatrical plays, novels and more.
The festival will be free and open for all, the artists will not pay for the participation nor will be an auction for the art pieces to be sold.
There will be an examination of the art pieces from the organizing committee based on the aesthetics and the possibility of the art piece to be coherent with the other. With this we hope to achieve a multidimensional spectacle and a very interesting, eye-catching festival.
The accepted art pieces, must be moved to a certain space that will be appointed later, from the organizing committee until the 22th of January 2018. The safety precautions for the art works will be a personal responsibility of the owners/artists.
The photographic group DIAFRAGMA 26, hosts for several years now, festivals with the purpose of promoting Contemporary Art and helping artists communicate with its other in a safe space of creation and imagination and trying to start an educational, productive dialogue inside the art community. Our last festival was held in 2017 and the theme was LOVE.
“UTOPIA”
Utopia is an imaginary world or society where all is harmonized and perfect. An unrealistic, type of dream world. A world socially, politically and lawfully perfect.
It is connected with an optimistic, idealistic, almost impossible perfection, the power of the idealization of the simple, the joyful, the natural and the real.
“Arcadia”, (Et ego in Arcadia) as a word, represents a historical search for harmonization with nature and at the same time is considered a synonym for the word “Utopia”.
It is also referred to the idealistic man, who is an unrealistic dreamer.
“All the Utopian societies will be passed on, only men will gain wings and become angels” Fyodor Dostoyevsky
