Lapsus is an International Call for photographic and video projects curated by the Italian critic Marinella Paderni. Photographers and videoartists, regardless of age, sex, occupation or geographic location can participate, as single individuals or in a group.
By 30 March 2013, 15 projects will be chosen by a selection panel – which includes Martin Breindl, Elena Ceratti and Silvio Wolf – and at the exhibition opening on 17 May 2013 the curator will choose the three winning projects and award €2,000 prizes.
Lapsus – An International Open Call For Photographic and Video Projects
As an International Call for photographic and video projects, Lapsus, through its curator, invites artists to reflect on how “History of art shows us that many works were born of accidental ‘mistakes’ which occurred during the execution of a project, the taking of a picture or the recording of a video; such slips or lapsus’ often occur without the knowledge of the author, who can use them as a point of strength in the final work.”
After the initial selection of 15 projects, scheduled for 30 March 2013, at the exhibition opening on 17 May 2013 the curator of Lapsus, Marinella Paderni, will choose the three winning projects and award the following prizes:
- First Prize: €1,000
- Second Prize: €500
- Third Prize: €500
The exhibition of the 15 projects will be at the fsmgallery, Florence, Italy, and will run from 17 May to 15 June 2013.
Lapsus is a collaboration between Fondazione Studio Marangoni and Celeste Network.
Entry fee is €40 per project uploaded directly online. Each project can contain up to 10 photographs and/or videos (max 10 minutes). The registration on Celeste Network is free.
