deadline extended Jun,5, 2022

​ZeugmaCollective, in collaboration with LAIKA aps, is proud to announce the second edition of “​Landscape2022​” A Call for Sound Artist and Video Artist.

After the success of the first edition we have decided to raise the quality of the selection. Assuming that the human species is by far the one that alters the natural balance more than any other, causing a significant reduction in biodiversity and a worsening of environmental conditions, we want to invite you to reflect on the issue in question.

Landscape2022 encourages the artists to create audiovisual works in which the “sound” has a main role in order to create a narration focused on human-environment interaction and fragile equilibrium that allows them to exist together at the same time.

Landscape became international
The call is for artists from all over the world. (see the “Participation requirements ”paragraph below).
