Application: 15.04.2015.
place: Zagreb, Croatia

KONTEJNER | bureau for contemporary art praxis is inviting all artists, inventors, scientists, geeks, tech lovers and all other passionate tech heads to enter the open call and apply their works for presentation at the fifth edition of Device_art! The call for proposals is open until April 15th 2015.

The term device_art refers to art production based on various aspects of technological devices and mechanisms: the creative usage of analogue/digital, high/low technologies, also including devices, gadgets, machines, robots and tech oriented performances. The aim of the triennial international exhibition Device_art is to present the creative tendencies at the junction of art and design, gadget-hack. There is no fixed subject or theme the proposed works should refer to, nor is it necessary for the works to have an exclusively artistic aspect. 

Device_art is a comparative research project which, alongside local production, presents a particular international device art scene. This edition of Device_art is organized in collaboration with the Kapelica Gallery from Ljubljana (SI), Video Pool Media Arts Centre from Winnipeg (CA) and Eastern Bloc from Montreal (CA).
