Ruth Höflich, Concentric Curriculum Safe Workshop EOI

Bus Projects and Ruth Höflich invite you to submit an expression of interest for ‘Safe’, a series of online workshops structured around Todd Haynes’ film (1995) of the same name. Participants of the workshop will meet weekly over 4 sessions to discuss the circumstances of sudden immunity loss and possible departures from a moment of personal dissolution.

EOIs ARE NOW CLOSED

The film follows Carol, an upper middle class white woman living in suburban California in the 80s through a period of acute hypersensitivity where she finds herself and body at constant risk of environmental toxicity. Unable to be diagnosed, Carol joins a wellness cult where she spirals further and further into self isolation.

We will discuss why her disease remains ambiguous, the role of ambient invisibility and systemic marginalisation and how we might resist a neoliberal therapeutics towards other definitions of care. We will consider works by Johanna Hedva, Audre Lorde, Alexis Wright, Nicole Seymour and Dodie Bellamy as well as watch additional excerpts from films like Melancholia by Lars von Trier and Lucrecia Martel’s The Headless Woman.

In presentation we will explore performative, essayistic forms and overlapping and entangled logics that bring in elements of our own practice. Participants will be invited to present work during the online sessions as well as part of a digital publication that will be produced in response to the seminar by the group. It is essential to commit to all four sessions.

‘Safe’ will be held at the following times:

Monday 20 July, 7 - 9pm
Monday 27 July, 7 - 9pm
Monday 3 August, 7 - 9pm
Monday 10 August, 7 - 9pm

WHO CAN APPLY

Bus Projects welcomes applications from individual arts practitioners at all career stages. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners are particularly encouraged to apply.

EOI PROCESS

The Bus Projects’ ‘Safe’ EOI closes at midnight Friday 10 July, 2021. Applications should be submitted through our online form. After the closing date, a shortlist of applicants will be invited to participate in the workshop series. Applicants are encouraged to check the dates as we would like to involve all participants in all four sessions as an ongoing process.

SUBMISSIONS

The EOI process has been designed to be as simple as possible. The submission should include:

A brief description of your practice, 
and interests (no more than 300 words)
An artist bio
A brief statement about why you are 
interested in participating in these 
workshops (no more than 200 words)
A link to one of your artworks that
