“Alice in a box” [AT] – OPEN CALLS

ILLUSTRATIVE ART: Artists working in any illustrative style are invited to submit their artistic expressions on a single graphic element: the smile. All abstract or figurative interpretations of the subject are welcome. Artists can submit up to 3 artworks [more infos below]. Format: 4-1/8 x 5-7/8 inches – 105 × 148 mm [A6].
STATEMENT
:
This call is for all those who want to defend the right to be out of the ordinary. An ‘inappropriate’ attitude at the ‘wrong’ time can expose all of us to the risk of improper restriction of personal freedom. If you feel concerned about the issue of psychiatric coercive treatment and social censorship, you can stand up for the freedom of singularity, and whimsy, by sending a passport photo of yourself, either in the official format [biometric] or from a photo booth.

Requirements: • Artwork and passport photos can be submitted in hard copy or digital form [350 dpi]. • Participation in the open call also requires the submission of a SHORT BIO and the CONSENT FOR USE OF MATERIAL. Digital files can be sent via WeTransfer at info@munsha.it • Submission is free of charge. • No fees or compensation may be made available to participants. • Unselected material will not be sent back.
The selected artworks and statements will be part of a 4 layers project by the photographer Anna Motterle and will be included in the graphic layout of Munsha’s upcoming music album, Alices Geschwister.

MÄDCHENORCHESTER
Original-Soundtrack
zum Theaterstück

MÄDCHENORCHESTER is the soundtrack of the stage play “Mädchenorchester – Musiktheater mit klassischer und elektronischer Musik nach Erinnerungen der Mitglieder des Frauenorchesters Auschwitz“, produced by the spreeagenten in 2019.
The production is based on the story of the only female orchestra in a concentration camp, specifically in Auschwitz Birkenau. The girls’ orchestra was assembled on the orders of the SS. It played at the gate when the labour columns marched in and out, and gave concerts in the infirmary for women who were to be gassed the same day.
The girls’ orchestra also had to give private concerts time and again, such as for the National Socialist war criminal, medic and anthropologist Josef Mengele. [Read more about the stage play].
Music composed, performed and produced by Munsha at FarF StudiO | Mix and mastering: Lorenzo Maffia [Storm digital recording studio] | Mix track n°6: Francesco Galdieri// Photos: Anna Motterle.

“MÄDCHENORCHESTER – Original-Soundtrack zum Theaterstück” reviewed on African Paper.

Familienporträt, the single that anticipates it, is for me a rip in a canvas, a delicate incursion into an imaginary cellar as if to secretly investigate the scents and tones of dusty memories.
The song, as well as its, video  pays homage to all the lives broken by hatred, to the everyday life denied by the abuse of power, in the hope that our conscience, knowledge, and responsibility will never again allow an abomination, such as the Holocaust, to take place.
Wolkenfamilie, the second single of Munsha’s album, MÄDCHENORCHESTER. Lyrics: Susanne Chrudina | Live visual interventions: Dafne Narvaez Berlfein | Video editing: Sarnt Utamachote | Costumes and make-up: Anna Lilia Konishchev aka Swoosh Anatta | Mixing: Francesco Galdieri | Mastering: Lorenzo Maffia [Storm digital recording studio.
A special thanks go to Isabella Gerstner and TATWERK | Performative Forschung for the friendly endorsement. A production supported by the Senate Department for Culture and Europe through Kulturprojekte Berlin.

A year after the premiere, ALICE, and her Wonderland world return online, to take its audience through the meshes of psychiatry and social prejudice; into a world in which the white rabbit is not to be followed but hunted down.
