The Open Call is officially closed for this year. Thank you to all the wonderful artists who sent their application!
Follow us on Facebook for updates about coming events. Open call for the first B_Tour Festival - 30/08-01/09
B_Tour invites groups and individuals, to create tours that rethink storytelling, and suggest innovative, experimental approaches to the conventional format of a guided tour. Tours should encompass engaging ways of intervening public spaces and relate strongly to Berlin’s social/cultural/geographical fabric. The festival is particularly oriented to projects that challenge us to rethink our everyday relationship to the urban environment. The festival is a multidisciplinary arts platform where various artistic expression/disciplines meet social activism. We look for audio tours, video tours, tours without a guide, tours led by animals! Anything goes.
Tours should aim to explore the critical dimension of citizenship, locality, mapping, high art, popular culture, gentrification, human- technology interface, psychogeography, geographical hegemony and politics of public space. Community involved projects, arts discipline cross-over projects and collaborative endeavors are particularly welcomed.
B because it's not A, it's an alternative to the hegemonic narrative of conventional guided tours; B because it's all about personal and communal Biographies; B because we want to Breach the Borders between public and private spaces.
