Countering Fake News with Art and the Archive, in Russia and the United States
Two Chicago-based and two St. Petersburg-based artists will be selected for this project. They will each create found footage films during spring 2019, and then will travel as a group to both Chicago and St. Petersburg in summer 2019 to exhibit the films.

Each will receive:

– Travel costs: airfare, food, lodging, and transportation
– Access to archival footage source material
– At least one public screening of their work in both Chicago and St. Petersburg
– Visits to cultural organizations in Chicago and St. Petersburg

– Each artist will create an approximately 15 minute long found-footage film on their own. Films can be documentary or experimental.
– Collaboration will take the form of 3 Skype-based discussions between all artists involved in order to develop project direction and create a relationship between each individual short film.
– Must be available for a week-long trip to St. Petersburg and a week-long trip to Chicago in summer 2019 (dates TBD based on selected filmmakers' schedules).

All artists will spend 1 week in St. Petersburg and 1 week in Chicago participating in the following activities:
– At least one screening with Q&A afterwards
– One workshop
– An interview with all artists involved.
