OPEN CALL // Are you Younger Than Rhianna?

Calling all artists, architects, filmmakers, musicians, scientists, theorists, and writers! Post your ideas and concepts for a chance to win 15,000 Euros to realize your project, curatorial help from notorious institutions, your work in a major European show, and more. The possibilities for submissions are limitless and the prize epic. Sound too good to be true? There’s a catch. You have to be young. Really, really young. You have to have been born in or after the year 1989 (or in their words, #YoungerThanRihanna).

Do you fit this category?

Apply for DIS Magazine and DIScrit 89plus’ latest project #YoungerThanRihanna.
89plus is an international, multi-platform research project cofounded by Simon Castets and Hans Ulrich Obrist. A mapping of the creative minds of the generation born in or after 1989, it manifests itself through panels, books, periodicals, and exhibitions.

For its current project #YoungerThanRihanna 89plus calls for those born in 1989 or the years after to submit their unique project for a chance to win one of two grants: one by an international jury including among others, representatives from the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and Serpentine Gallery London. The second grant will be chosen by popular vote facilitated through the DIScrit 89plus website.
