HoME- House. Music. Europe.

OPEN CALL for artists

The diversity of European societies comes from our history, which has left an imprint on us as well as our families over the years. Our collective and personal stories are connected to important life events, human relationships, and feelings but they are equally marked by traumas such as wars or crises. All those entangled memories contribute to shape an oral historical legacy overarching many family generations, while being difficult to share with others due to their widely subjective and intimate nature.


HoME is an oral history-based art project created in the frame of a cooperation between four European new music organisations based in four countries: Hungary, Austria, Serbia and Spain. Its centerpiece is a small, portable house-shaped installation able to process and sonify data that will be collected during simple storytelling actions involving the participation of individuals from diverse local communities. Twelve emerging artists coming from different art disciplines (or genres) will engage in an interdisciplinary process resulting in the creation of a series of collective works based on the collected materials during the first phase of the project.


The artists involved must be able to follow the whole process including transnational activities.
