Revolv Collective Homeland Open Call


  • London United Kingdom (map)

‘’Mud is sweeter in your homeland, than honey anywhere else.’’ 

Revolv are seeking photography & writing from emerging artists and writers, responding to the theme Homeland to participate in a publication and a workshop. The meaning of home is in a state of flux – starting from the search for a better future to the displacement of individuals as a result of political and economic events.                                                                                           

Photography is a vital tool conserving and narrating the roots and routes which shape one’s journey. People become nomads, adapting to temporary residences and an unsettled lifestyle, wherever they happen to ‘dock’. While images can encapsulate seconds of the present, writing is capable of shining light on unspoken stories, repressed affairs and private accounts of the notion of home.

We would like to collect individual and intimate, global and collective experiences in relation to homeland, in order to present multiple ways of perceiving the idea of belonging.

Fifteen creatives will be selected to participate in a publication which will be supported by a one-day workshop taking place in New Cross, London. Homeland publication will also include the work of guest artists Dafna Talmor and Martin Seeds; the design and production will be in collaboration with Victoria Kieffer.
