Atelier Nord is looking for applicants for our annual open call. We are looking for proposals for an exhibition in may/june 2020, which will be considered by a jury. This is the fourth time Atelier Nord organises an open call for exhibition proposals.
Last year, the jury selected Victoria Durnak’s project The Family Architect. Durnak’s exhibition delved into the effects of electronic surveillance on family life, especially the lives of young children.
