The open call for Ear/eye 2021  is now open!

Ear/Eye is a new Witty Books series aimed at creating a dialogue
between a visual artist and a musician through the publication of a limited edition audio cassette + book.

  • Who is eligible to participate in the Ear/eye award call?
    The open call is addressed to visual artists and musicians interested
    in creating a dialogue between these two art forms.
  • Do artists have to submit their works as already paired?
    No, this is not necessary. It is also possible to submit a single
    visual arts entry or a single music entry. The idea is to create a
    spontaneous dialogue between two different artists. At the same time, artists that already work together are welcome to apply.
  • Must the projects submitted be unpublished?
    Yes we prefer to publish two unpublished works.
  • How to apply
