La temática y los medios técnicos son abiertos, indica el director editorial de la revista
Farenheitº convoca a la segunda versión del Premio de Fotografía Contemporánea

FABIOLA PALAPA QUIJAS

La revista Fahrenheitº lanzó la convocatoria al Premio de Fotografía Contemporánea, segunda edición. En el certamen podrán participar todas las personas de nacionalidad mexicana, así como extranjeros que acrediten legalmente su calidad de residentes en el país.

Aunque el tema de las fotografías es libre, el jurado calificador -integrado por personajes de reconocida trayectoria- tomará en cuenta la originalidad de la propuesta, la creatividad y la estética de la imagen, así como el impacto visual.

Rubén Marshall Tikalova, director editorial de Fahrenheitº. Arte Contemporáneo, explicó que ''las inquietudes de la comunidad artística son diversas, y nuestras grandes riquezas consisten en esa pluralidad de las obras. Dejamos abierta no sólo la temática, sino los medios técnicos en la realización".

Al respecto, el director del galardón, José María Iturralde, señaló: ''El primer lugar consiste en un automóvil Smart 2008; el segundo en un viaje redondo a Londres, para dos personas, y el tercero, en un apoyo económico de 25 mil pesos. Hay uno especial, de 7 mil pesos en especie, que otorga Telcel".

Iturralde indicó que alrededor de 35 fotografías serán seleccionadas para montar una exposición en la Alianza Francesa, el próximo año. En la primera versión del premio se inscribieron más de 400 personas con un total de mil fotografías.

Cada participante puede presentar un máximo de dos imágenes, que deberán ser impresas en papel fotográfico de alta calidad, en tamaño carta y acompañadas con un disco compacto que contenga el archivo digital.

La fecha límite para la recepción de materiales serán las 18 horas del 31 de octubre de 2007.

Para participar es indispensable llenar el formato de inscripción, el cual está disponible en la dirección electrónica www.magazine-f.com o en las oficinas de la revista ubicadas en avenida Amsterdam 124-302, colonia Condesa. Teléfono 5553-3070.

The KVB Kölner Verkehrs-Betriebe AG (the public tranport company of the city of Cologne) have initiated an international art competition for the artistic design of eight stations - seven below and one above ground - of the new North-South Light Railway Cologne (Nord-Süd Stadtbahn Köln). -In two resolutions of the Cologne City Council on 14 November 2002 and 4 April 2006 the KVB, as awarding authority of this major underground railway project, were commissioned to organise the competition, which was launched on 18 May 2007 with the international call for submissions. National and international artists are to be involved in this multi-stage international art competition. Through the artistic design of the stations, the "city below" shall be made accessible for both Cologne's inhabitants and its visitors as a new place of discovery which sensitises us for associating with art, and at the same time makes an important contribution to the discussion about topics of urban living, the "city before our eyes". The financial means for the competition, including the realisation of the art works, amount to 1.75 million euros.

Application procedures

The competition will be run in two phases with a preliminary application procedure. The preliminary application procedure is open to national and international artists who can prove themselves experienced with projects in public space in general, and with buildings and interiors in particular. With proof of no more than three already executed projects the entrants should illustrate the way in which their art conceives space as a unity, and explain the use of spatial references.

Out of the applicants of the preliminary application procedure, 27 artists or artist groups will be accepted for the first phase, to which further 13 artists have been separately and directly invited in the run-up to the competition, namely: Baren-brock + Osterwald (D), Guillaume Bijl (B), Ceal Floyer (NL), Doris Frohnapfel (D), Hans Haacke (USA), Stefan Hofmann (D), Peter Kogler (A), Thomas Schoenauer (D), Stefan Sous (D), Joëlle Tuerlinckx (B), Brigitta Weimer (D), Lawrence Weiner (USA), and Eusebius Wirdeier (D). In October 2007 these 40 artists or artist groups will be asked to develop a basic concept of their planned entry.

Starting in May 2008, the second phase will require ten selected artists re-spectively groups of artists to refine their ideas into tangible plans. Out of these ten proposals the competition jury will select the finalist, or even finalists, as it is in the jury's power to recommend that the KVB commission one artist or artist group for each separate station, special construction or tunnel section. The winner or winners will be announced in April 2009. It is planned to display the proposals submitted for the second phase in an exhibition, for the benefit of an interested public and of the competing artists. The realisation of art works is scheduled to finish by the end of 2010.

Entrants to the preliminary, open phase must submit their documents by 31 July 2007.
