ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival is an international contemporary arts festival presenting site-specific works made for public space in Kuopio, Finland. ANTI presents live, sonic, visual and text-based art from today’s most exciting and innovative artists. A truly international festival and Finland’s foremost presenter of Live Art, ANTI is a meeting place for artists and audiences fascinated by how art shapes the spaces of everyday life.
In September 2015, ANTI Festival will collaborate with the Kuopio Marathon to present a unique series of cultural events created in response to the race. We invite proposals for projects that engage with one or more of the following areas:
Duration, longevity and time; the long and short of time-based activities
Sport and culture, sporting culture, cultural sport
The body and endurance – expanded ideas of endurance: political, social, cultural forms of endured activity; the social agency of endurance
The quantified self: fitness culture, technology and performance
The race, racing and competitive frameworks
Participation and mass events – the individual and the many
The enthusiast and the amateur: the cultural agency of the ‘trained’ every-person
Topographic trajectories and spatial intervention: running/reading/using the city
ANTI is a site-specific festival – we do not show projects in traditional cultural spaces, thus projects have a direct relationship with the spaces and places they are shown in. When proposing a project please make it clear where your project would ideally be located, and why. The 2015 festival will take place in and round the Kuopio Marathon – projects are imagined to establish a number of relationships with the race itself; some may engage directly with the event while others might happen in parallel to it etc.
The Kuopio Marathon was first held in 1998. 2015 will see around 2,500 runners take part. The event comprises a mix of distances – full marathon, half marathon, 10K (walk or run) and a series of races for children. The events takes place across the 4th and 5th of September.
Before making your proposal it may be beneficial to spend some time with the online archive of previous festival editions : http://www.antifestival.com

Conceptual Pop. Conceptual Living. Pop Living invites artists to submit work that builds on ideas of ‘pop’ thinking in art and culture; the re/production of culture and living mediated through technology and advertising is captured in a constant techno-decumentation of society and the self. The hyper-real and contemporary constructions of living come together in a celebrity-fuelled world of sleek design and fictional future-spaces. Pop Living invites artists working with wall based work to respond to concepts of contemporary living, hyper-reality and transmitted spaces.
