Call For Entries 2019
The Capital City Film Festival’s House of More seeks emerging experimental video artists to submit for its inaugural digital exhibition, curated by Crystal Gause.
Nearly 20 years after the VNS MATRIX came on the scene “ TO HIJACK THE TOYS FROM TECHNOCOWBOYS AND REMAP CYBERCULTURE WITH A FEMINIST BENT”, Laboria Cuboniks, a 6 person xenofeminist collective, released the Xenofeminist Manifesto: A Politics for Alienation.
This manifesto displayed the cyberfeminist of tomorrow. One who is a techno materialist, an anti-naturalist, and a gender abolitionist. One who “re-engineers” to gain the future.
By asking for work exploring/repurposing technology, race, sex, and gender, the House of More this year will examine our current reality and gesture to the one we engineer.
While all submissions are welcomed, we actively seek work from women, gender non-conforming people, and artist from LGBTQ communities.
