Open Call: Artists: Escape Fake 2.0 till Feb.14th

Polycular and partners are looking for creative minds from Austria, Hungary, Italy or Romania, working with interactive and media art, data visualization and multimedia production, who are motivated and prepared to design transformative experiences related to fake news and media literacy.


Escape Fake 2.0 curates an interdisciplinary approach focused on the design of immersive technology and interactive experiences, drawing on collaboration between organizations in the audiovisual, immersive technology, media, educational and cultural sectors. The project builds on previous work in the design of Escape Fake, an augmented reality educational game dealing with the topic of fake news: As a part of Escape Fake 2.0, we invite 4 teams composed of 2 artists to contribute their ideas in the creation of four artworks. The artifacts or installations will be mobile and usable without borders, and they will be toured to art and media festivals in the second half of 2023. We are looking for teams of two artists from each partner country. Projects will be selected by the core team of the Escape Fake project, together with guest experts.


Open House | Info session  January 26th 5:00 p.m to 6:00 p.m

The project outline will be presented at an online Open House event and provide an opportunity for potential applicants to meet with the project team, learn more about the creation process and ask questions. If you cannot attend, we highly recommend viewing a recording of the event, which will be available on Pro Progressione’s website  after the Open House Event.
