EIN AREAL (in English: an area) means surface. Not only the surface of a room, but also that of a platform allowing for the reflection of societal and cultural values as well as its manifold appearances. A platform for culture through space and for space through culture.

Participating in social life means being under the constant influence of society. Nevertheless, the individual personality structure affects social groups just as a social group affects individual behavior. “Habitus” is a way how the social individual distinguishes herself from others by different traits, e.g., in lifestyle, language, clothing and taste.

We call for artistic submissions on the theme “Habitus”.

This open call is directed to artists under the age of 35 years and those practicing one of the following fields of fine arts: photography, film, audio, installation, performance, sculpture, painting or literature.

EIN AREAL selects up to four artists for solo exhibitions, each for a maximum period of three weeks in the project room in Friedrichstr. 2 in Wuppertal, Germany.
