HEDONISTIKA: Call for proposals


Hedonistika will be a three-day, multi-modal 
event held in Montréal, CA that brings together 
food scholars, artists, and roboticists to 
examine the innumberable (and often hidden) ways 
in which technology and food are related. By 
engaging with the hegemony-challenging ideology 
of hacking, participants will seek to interrogate 
and expose the mutually constructive bonds of 
food and tech, while proposing alternative, 
playful, and stimulating reconfigurations. Part 
festival, part workshop, and part symposium, 
Hedonistika will merge research-creation with 
critical analysis, and community engagement with 
celebration. (Plus, it will taste and look really cool.)

Hedonistika is looking for projects and 
individuals that explore the critical issues 
within these realms. The curators are accepting 
proposals for installation and performance work, 
completed or not for exhibition in the festival 
portion of the event.  Artists should submit a pdf document comprised of 

· A short CV (2 pgs)
· Short description of the project (150 words max)
· Long description of the project (500 words max) including images if possible
· Short bio
· Description of support material
· Documentation of past work (no more than 10 items)
· URL to artist website

Hedonistika is scheduled for 2013 in Montreal and 
will be an Elektra sponsored event.
Please e-mail submissions to: hedonistika2013 at gmail.com

Deadline January 15th, 2013
