Empower is an afro-futurist and queer-feminist community platform with film, electronic music and art by queer people of colour. EmpowAIR is a collaboration between Empower and UK based curator Jumoke Fernandez, taking place on 11 August 2018 in the GlogauAIR art space in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
Empower parties are about freedom of expression in any form, giving protagonism to minority groups and letting them tell their own stories. We combine electronic music events with documentary filmmaking, focusing on queer, trans*, gender non-conforming people of colour.

Deadline: July 13th, 2018.
Anastasiya´s art is based on the confluence of natural materials and found relics. Materiality is critical to her work and often the starting place for inspiration; newspaper clippings from letter exchanges with her grandmother, cheesecloth reminiscent of the curdling milk hanging from her mother’s bathroom sinks, snips of hair from poorly planned haircutting experiments. These become the foundation for intimately curated microcosms.
Working within drawing, painting, and sculpture she choose what medium feels most appropriate for any given project, often times combining multiple. She rarely set out with a concrete plan, and she is interested in the places in her art that evolve through the process of working; where elements crack, drip, ooze, expose. The sense of interior and exterior is often present, both in the physical sense of elements that can be explored and illustrations of interiors such as the underlying biomechanics in living beings.
LOOP Discover Award opens the registration period from May 23rd to July 2nd. This year, we establish aliances between ecology and video art so we can rethink from the artistic practice the new ecological challenges. The finalist videos will be screened both in Barcelona (at Antigua Fábrica Estrella Damm) and in Berlin (at GlogauAIR).
WHAT IS LOOP DISCOVER AWARD?
The LOOP Discover Award has been created with the aim to support and recognize the recent production of videos and films by international artists through a free open call to the artistic community.
This LOOP Barcelona initiative is supported by Estrella Damm, who sponsors this prize, in line with its longtime support to the cultural sector. The exhibition featuring the finalist projects, included in the program of LOOP Barcelona every year, will be shown at the former Estrella Damm beer factory (Antigua Fábrica Estrella Damm), giving the audience the opportunity to enjoy the works in an exhibition format as well as at GlogauAIR.
All the submitted works will undergo three selection stages conducted by expert members of the arts sector who will evaluate the works according to their relevance to the proposed theme, their artistic quality, the novelty of their approach and the artist’s career.
An international jury made up of acclaimed professionals in the contemporary art sector will single out 10 finalists, among whom will be the winner of the prize, worth €5,000. The awarded work will furthermore be considered to be included in the LOOP Collection, currently on loan to the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA).
With the aim of fostering a space for the promotion of video art works, the LOOP Discover Award has also created an online video channel, in which selected works from the second stage of the competition will be available for viewing and voting. The most voted video will be part of the final exhibition along with the other 10 finalists, and included in other possible screenings.
All the finalist works might be considered for future projects by LOOP, such as screenings in international fairs and festivals, itinerant exhibitions and other curated proposals. Furthermore, they will be promoted and given visibility through the LOOP network.
HOW TO APPLY
Registration: from May 23rd to July 2nd (23:59, GMT+1).
A completed application form will have to include the following:
- the applicant’s personal details
- the applicant’s CV and personal statement

The last 3 years Marcia has been writing and researching images of displacement, which resulted in a PhD thesis and several studio projects. Her interest lies in vast empty spaces, slow paces and reduced color pallets. Thematically her practice is rooted in displacement, migration, miscegenation and how the body-mind copes with disorientation.
The interest in science, researching digital media and the observation of mass and social media are a part of the search for a “map” or method, as she tries to understand how people form their collectives and identities. These concepts and processes converge into single channel videos, installations and photographs.
The culmination of our resident artists’ work is presented every three months during Open Studios. This is a two-day event that aims to celebrate creativity and energize the dialog around art, where the public will be able to step inside the studios to meet personally our artists and see their amazing brand-new projects!
During Open Studios June 2018, you will be able to be immersed in James Perley’s work on obsessions and phobias, to interact with Jessie Burrows and Angela Louise Powell’s architecture of persuasion and be taken on an artistic meditative journey about life possibilities by Yang Shen. While Anastasiya Gutnik explores the continuous life process of renewal and decay, Bruna Mayer attempts to create a visible form of human’s innermost primitive states and Jules Michael keeps on looking for answers about what painting is. Through photography, Carla Cabanas investigates the process of building an identity, at the same time as Yurika Sunada plays with the overlapping of light, shadows, sound and spaces to refer to impalpable concepts of Time and Memory. Moreover, testing the boundaries between visible and invisible spaces, Kyoko Fujiwara and JiEun Chun, create sculptures about places that one can intuit but cannot see.
