Description

Calling all designers, artists and photographers!

Would you like to have your work sold in the Barbican shop, as part of their forthcoming Bauhaus exhibition? Of course you would.

Bauhaus: Art as Life, opening at the Barbican in May 2012, will feature painting, sculpture, design, architecture, film, photography, textiles, ceramics, theatre and installation from the modern world’s most famous art school.

To celebrate the exhibition, we want you to design a series of Bauhaus-inspired images to be sold as products in the Barbican shop. Six designs will be selected by an esteemed panel of judges to be made into paper-based products such as greetings cards, posters or prints. You’ll even receive 10% of the initial print run for your own use.

You will also receive an invite to the exclusive private view to mark the opening of the exhibition.

Want to know more about Bauhaus? Read our interview with the exhibition's curator Catherine Ince.

All you need to do is submit at least six images, all of which must be new work inspired by the forthcoming exhibition. Upload your six images to your portfolio as a set named Bauhaus: Art as Life. These can be created using any media (eg collage, digital, photography, painting) but submissions must be provided as digital files. Once selected, the winning designs will need to be provided as high-resolution JPEG files for production.

Winners will be able to negotiate terms before any subsequent print runs.

 

Bauhaus: Art as Life is at Barbican Art Gallery from 3 May to 12 August 2012. The exhibition is produced in cooperation with Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin/Museum für Gestaltung, Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau and Klassik Stiftung Weimar. Find out more.

 

The brief closes on 16 February at 5pm and is open to IdeasTap members aged 16-30 based in the UK. Late entries will not be accepted under any circumstances, including technical issues – so make sure you don’t leave your application to the last minute. 

If you have technical issues, email info@ideastap.com.

  • I'm confused by everyone talking about links? It says to respond by uploading your six images to your portfolio as a set named Bauhaus: Art as Life which is what I've done...hope that is OK. Also please ignore my first submission!

    Thanks,
    Sophie

  • Hi,

    Simon - Yep, that's fine.

    Kate - Okay, will do.

    Eleanor - One link to all the images is fine. There have to be at least six images so you can upload 10 if you want. Yes, you can have two sets - make sure they are both clearly labeled.

  • Don't worry, I have submitted again to be safe. Put in a single link to my set rather than for each image. Hope this is correct.

  • Hello,

    I didn't leave links to my imagery in my submission, so have applied again. You can delete my first submission if possible?
    Thanks, Kate

  • Hi,

    I am about to submit my work but I have a couple of questions.

    I am unsure about the links that need to be included in the 100 words. Is it just one link to the whole portfolio of images or lots of links to each individual image?

    Does it have to be exactly 6 images? I have about 10 and can't decide on which ones to submit - could I add two sets in my portfolio?

    Thanks

  • Hi. I entered a couple of days ago but now I'm doubting I have done this correctly. I filled out the 100 word statement but didn't add a link to my set. The set is clearly labelled and easy to see in my portfolio though. Is this enough or do I have to re-submit? Thanks.
