CALL FOR PROPOSALS: EM Fieldstation: I-Carus

EM (Ecole Mondiale) is a brussels based art-initiative. It was originally initiated by King Leopold II of Belgium in 1902 as a postgraduate school to develop and prepare young men for a colonial career in the overseas areas of the European nation states. The first stone of the school, designed by the French architect Charles Girault (1851–1932), was laid out in July 1905, but the project was abandoned shortly after. Belgian artists - Filip Van Dingenen and Ive Van Bostraeten - aspire to critically rethink this controversial project through the design of 9 thematic "field stations" in various locations. The aim is to redefine and investigate the feasibility of the Ecole Mondiale as a nomadic school, platform, collective, as well as a knowledge center in between pedagogy and art.

Please find an open call for the Field Station they are developing in Greece. Another Field Station will be developed in partnership with Z33, more information will follow later.
