What is FluxusMuseum?
FluxusMuseum is housed in the main section of the old Marble Factory by the yacht harbour of Parikia, on the Cycladic island of Paros, Greece. It is a place to explore a thread of ideas about life and be inspired by our unlimited capacity for invention. There is a vibrant local community and throughout the summer it is crowded with international visitors and depraved hedonists.
What is FluxusMuseum Prize?
FluxusMuseum Prize for Experimental Video is seeking proposals for experimental works. Selected proposals will be commissioned and featured in the first video exhibition at FluxusMuseum in July – August 2024, as well as being displayed on FluxusMuseum website, ensuring a wide reaching audience both in person and online. Films will be shown in our main exhibition hall and also on a continuous loop in our cinema for the duration of the exhibition.
We welcome all submissions that are in the experimental spirit of Fluxus, but not in any way bound by any particular understanding of Fluxus. Submissions do not need to reference Fluxus directly in any way.
In our selection process, we focus on the experimental and anomalous; works deviating from the expected norms of narrative structure; and works with originality, a strong visual style, and fresh spirit. Proposals can be submitted in the form of writing, storyboards or video outlines.
Submitted films should be a maximum of 25 minutes, with no minimum length. 20-40 works will be selected. There are no submission fees.
Selected works will be commissioned for a fee of €600. Successful proposals will be selected by the Fluxus editorial team. On acceptance of a proposal the Fluxus Museum will pay €300 to commission the work and deliver a further €300 upon receiving the completed work.
The completed films will then be entered into a competition judged by FluxusMuseum audience both in person at the museum and online. Three prizes, 1 x €10,000 and 2 x €5000, will be awarded to the makers of the winning videos.
We won’t own your work or be able to sell it. We will retain the right to display it but you will always retain ownership.
