Third Space announces its new Call for Proposals

For the year 2018 – 2019 we will welcome projects without a theme limitation, however it is highly encouraged that submitted works emphasize or deal with our philosophical goal:

“how to unsettle preconceived notions of the other”

Is it possible to erase those lines that separate us? How?

The invitation welcomes all forms of contemporary art, critical pedagogy and social activism: exhibitions, performances, installations, sound art, experimental poetry, lectures, talks, workshops, seminars, hacking sessions, etc. We also invite curators, collectives, organisations, etc., to propose a project and take over Third Space.

Exhibition/event period:
One day to two weeks during the months of April 2018 to March 2019.
The applicant can suggest a time that would be most appropriate for the realisation of the project.
The applicant is also in charge of opening the space for the duration of the project.


DEADLINE: 1st of February 2018.
