            OPEN CALL

> Mycelium Network Society
> ELEONORE summer residency 2017, Linz, Austria
> JULY 1 –SEPTEMBER 12, 2017
> Mycelium Network Society is an underground network imagination powered 
> by fungus, spores, culture, kitchen, radio, transmission, 
> installations, workshops and performances.Mycelium Network Society, a 
> brand new network initiative situatedin a post-internet mudland, 
> diverts the pursuit of magic mushroom, from a state of 
> hyper-hallucination to collective fungal consciousness, and 
> investigates the fungi culture, its network capacity to communicate 
> and process information.Mushroom as a commodity, a medium, an element, 
> commands its own domain in human-disturbed forests. Sprouting across 
> the moisture of rich soils, expanding its colonies, sharing 
> informations, networking co-habitants, mycelium is ordained by Paul 
> Stametsas “the neurological network of nature”. In this post-digital, 
> post-media, post-internet, post-enlightenment phase of current-day 
> investigation into cultural practices, we seek out mycelium to lead us 
> out of the ruins, to construct political tactics, to salvage economic 
> meltdown. Ultimately at nature’s mercy, we artists/cultural producers 
> strive to convene a nature’s network merging our research in 
> technology, biology and ecology, persisting inconstant molecular 
> communication a la mycelium mode.
> This year, Stadtwerkstatt/infolab, in association with Zavod 
> Kersnikova/Kapelica gallery in Ljubljana and CycleX in Andes, New 
> York, launches Mycelium Network Society as part of Ecologies 
> excursionat transmediale2017. As part of Stadtwerkstatt’s initiatives 
> that focus on free/open culture and information technology, Station 
> Messschiff Eleonore,oncea survey vessel, now docked by Danube harbor, 
> is powered by solar energy, equipped with radio components and 
> modified to host artists in residency. This summer, the Eleonore 
> summer residency investigates the theme of Mycelium Network Society 
> and calls for artists who works with mycelium, mushrooms, fungus and 
> culture in a networked, network-able construct. We seek residency 
> proposals that expand from routing the mycelium underground to 
> scheming political insurgency and tactical intervention.
> Eleonore artist in residency is a Stadtwerkstatt’s project.
