Debtfair at Whitney Biennial: An Open Call

Occupy Museum's project Debtfair will be included in the 2017 Whitney Biennial. The first stage is a national open call to collect profiles on art and debt. We will then sift through the data and create a platform of artwork "bundles" to be installed in the museum and presented online in March 2017.

DEBTFAIR OPEN CALL

Occupy Museums invites artists across the US and Puerto Rico to participate in Debtfair, a project that will be shown at the Whitney Biennial in spring 2017. Debtfair is a means of exposing the hidden layer of debt within the art market and its institutions, making the relationship between art practice and American financial reality visible. All artists who apply through this open call will be featured on a revamped debtfair.org and their work will be shown on digital screens in the museum; 30 artists who are indebted to the same institutions will have their work exhibited inside of the Debtfair installation in the Whitney Museum.

 We believe that the practices of painting, sculpture, performance, video, music, and conceptual practice lie at the core of a progressive democratic society. Yet artists and culture workers face evermore extractive economic burdens as economic inequality widens. In this project we want to highlight inspiring artwork and communities of artists to push back on the feelings of shame and alienation that debt often elicits.

We ask our fellow artists to complete a questionnaire linked in this email to begin the process of joining Debtfair. Sharing data about your debts allow us to paint an accurate picture of art and debt today. Only images of your artwork and select written answers are shown publicly with ability to edit your public profile at any point. All information is kept in confidence.

 ARTISTAS EN DUEDA: Convocatoria abierta para unirse a la Plataforma de Debt-organizing (Organización por las Deudas), de la Bienal de Whitney. Plazo límite para entregar la propuesta: jueves, 9 de diciembre, 2016, 11:59 PM EST. Ocupar Museos invita a los artistas de los Estados Unidos a unirse por una Debtfair (deuda justa), un proyecto que será presentado en la Whitney Biennial (Bienal de Whitney), en marzo del 2017. Debtfair tiene el sentido de exponer las capas ocultas de las deudas, dentro del Mercado de Arte y sus instituciones. Los 92 artistas en el debtfair.org tienen $5.2 millones de deuda. Expandiremos esa comunidad en el 2017. Todos los artistas, que apliquen a través de esta convocatoria abierta, estarán presentados en la renovada debtfair.org y su trabajo será expuesto digitalmente en el museo; 30 artistas que están en deuda, en esa misma institución, exhibirán su trabajo físico. Creemos que la práctica de pintar, esculpir, actuar, hacer videos, música y la práctica conceptual, se inclina al núcleo de una sociedad democrática progresista. Sin embargo, artistas y trabajadores de la cultura enfrentan cargas económicas extractivas, en paralelo a la creciente riqueza y al boom financiero del mercado del arte. Con frecuencia, la deuda provoca sentimientos de vergüenza y alienación; es una pieza escondida de la división racial, económica y social. Pero, mostrando como estamos interconectados a través de él, el Debtfair nos moviliza alrededor de relaciones financieras que nos une los unos a los otros, localizando posibilidades de solidaridad en la lucha global; y también aprovechando nuestro poder colectivo como deudores.

Pedimos a nuestros artistas completar el siguiente cuestionario, para comenzar el proceso de sumarse al Debtfair. Compartiendo datos sobre sus deudas, nos permite tener una mejor idea sobre el arte y la deuda de hoy. Sólo imágenes de su obra y respuestas escritas seleccionadas son mostradas en la publicidad, con la habilidad de editar su perfil público en todos los puntos. Toda la información será mantenida de modo confidencial.

Plazo límite para entregar la propuesta: jueves, 9 de diciembre, 2016, 11:59 PM EST.
