Global Frequencies

Everything we know about the world we know from mass media. With latest information technology such as the World Wide Web, the world has changed dramatically and shrunk to the size of a screen. We can walk the streets of Lincoln, Nebraska via Google Earth and connect with anyone who is online.

For more than two decades, the term global has meant a social shift from politics to economics. German sociologist Ulrich Beck has called this global transformation “Second Modernity,” where both political and cultural life is overshadowed by the dominance of the markets.

Today, we must realize that global is a construct that has developed in parallel with its technological presence and visual representation. And we also need to be aware that the creators of this technology are the creators of this world. These dominant strings do actually influence the sound of the world, not only due to the ignorance of the entirety of the living world, but also because the number of strings is limited.

Global Frequencies calls for strings and voices to expand the sound of the world. The audible rather than the visible can create immediate situations and communities. Public speaking, public noise, public debate – we re-enter the confusion of the languages and the debate and discourse of the ancient agora. In recent years, along with a critical examination of neoliberalism in culture, artists have found new forms of writing and speaking, while performance, installation and theater are at the forefront of contemporary art.

Global Frequencies will reflect the global with voices and sounds of the world. All forms and media are welcome, from the human body to the art object, from video to installation, from performance to painting – the only likely restriction is the sound quality of the works.

Open to individuals and groups of all disciplines.

Application Deadline April 6, 2019, 11:59pm CST
