Queer Arts Festival: Call for contributions is open!

For the 2018 edition of the Antwerp Queer Arts Festival we welcome artworks from art students and
artists working with topics of gender and sexuality. This year’s theme will be Out of Focus. Therefore,
we are looking for artists that, for example:
- use different camera techniques
- explore gender identities and sexualities that escape mainstream portrayal
- focus on non-western LGBT topics
- contemplate the (dis)advantages of escaping detection/surveillance; safe spaces
As a festival, we aim to represent the local queer community as much as possible; therefore we are
especially looking for works from makers that live/work in Belgium.
The Antwerp Queer Arts festival and its accompanying exhibition will take place from 2 – 12 August.
Are you or do you know an artist who fits the theme and is excited to show their work? Please
contact us through queerarts@hetrozehuis.be and include:
- the name of the artist
- contact details/link to website
- potentially: depictions or descriptions of relevant artworks
We strive to make our selection complete by May 2018.
