minus20degree is now accepting proposals for our 5th edition in January 2020 >> m20d20.minus20degree (m20d) is a winter outdoor festival for contemporary art and architecture. In January 2020 m20d will celebrate its 5th anniversary. minus20degree2020 is looking for artists that can produce artworks in the field of sound art, video-art, performance, installation and land art. m20d wants to provide a platform for art that is radical, provocative and founded. m20d is independent, thus does not need to please or go easy on the audience.

The main material is the landscape and all it can offer combined with electronic media, performance and installations. As landscape elements m20d can provide, rivers, mountain tops, ski slopes and forests. Hopefully there is plenty of snow as material or backdrop for your artwork. The art works should be as ephemeral as the snow.
