Lazarets used to be quarantine stations, built to prevent plagues from entering the city through people on the ships. What do spaces tell us about the human condition? What unites us with the thousands of people who passed through the Lazarets of the world?
"Project Lazaretta: Digital Stories from the Old and New World" will be completed with the creation of a digital culture platform with art work that draws inspiration from the lazarets of Syros and Corfu, focusing on the modern context of pandemic. Digital artists are encouraged to approach the history of Lazarets and especially those of Syros and Corfu.
150 EUR will be awarded for selected artists
Deadline 15 January 2021
