Etopia’s Media Facade Academy has been part of the smARTplaces program since 2017. This year’s third edition is joined by smARTplaces partners Azkuna Zentroa and the Dortmunder U. Both partners will present works from the participating artists on their own media facades: the Sun Screen in Zarazoga and the new media wall in Dortmund. Each institution will also organise different activities in the coming months.

Ad Hoc open call 

The first activity was the Ad Hoc open call at Etopia in Bilbao, organised by Azkuna Zentroa (pictured above). The artists were really excited about having the opportunity to present their proposals for the Sun Screen. Thanks to the Dortmunder U a special guest joined the program: Adolf Winkelmann. Winkelmann is the author of Flying Pictures, the installation on the rooftop of Dortmunder U. You can see the results of the open call in September.
