Blaue Frau Portal Open Call

Blaue Frau is Looking for Artists or Performance Groups


We are looking for 9 artists or performance groups!!!


Blaue Frau (www.blauefrau.com) will launch a new website called Portal for artists working within norm-critical performance art. We will publish texts, interviews, articles, and experimental performance art critique on the Portal. Each season (Fall-Spring) we will present 10 new artists / performance groups (including Blaue Frau). The artists can come from a variety of art fields (light design, spoken word, etc) as long as you are working with performative art.


1. The chosen artists and their work will be showcased on the Portal.

2. You will have the opportunity to write articles and to participate in interviews and discussions.

3. You can participate in activities and get-togethers organized by the Portal.

4. You will be part of a community of other supporting norm critical artists in Finland and through that community be part of broadening the discussion about art and art critique.

5. You will be compensated for travel, accommodation, and for creating content for the web portal or activities.
