Theme for Guest Room

Guest Room aims to spark collaboration. Anika Meier, curator, art historian and author, has chosen to collaborate with the artist Max Siedentopf.

The two have developed the following framework for your submissions: Heartfelt: Give everyone goosebumps

Every day we're flooded with thousands and thousands of images – we want to find the ones that go under our skin, the ones that make us feel in this vast flood of information.

Why submit to this Guest Room?

This Guest Room is special. For 10 entrants who are interested and who will be among the selection from Anika and Max, we will drop individual NFTs on misa.art, the only online marketplace that brings emerging and established artists together and offers a range of traditional and digital art. Misa.art is developed by König Galerie. The NFT drop will happen in December. More info about the underlying smart contracts can be found on the submission start page.

If this is interesting for you to explore, we invite you to submit short video loops (max 30 seconds). As usual, photography is surely also welcome.

About Max Siedentopf

Max Siedentopf, the Namibian-German contemporary artist works across several media including sculpture, video, photography and publishing. He investigates social, cultural, and political situations in his artistic practice through straightforward and satirical approaches. His often times provocative approach to art has resulted in him being labelled a prankster. The pop culture relevancy of his work let Vogue Italy coin him as “viral artist”.

About Misa.art, digital art & NFTs

misa.art offers a carefully curated selection of art from the primary and secondary market. It is the only online marketplace that brings emerging and established artists together and offers a range of traditional and digital art. Ultra Contemporary artists are presented alongside the classics of art history from the past 70 years. The selection of new discoveries and canonical works is constantly being expanded, and NFTs and editions are regularly dropped.

The NFT marketplace on misa.art bridges the gap between the traditional art world and the crypto world with a broad and diverse selection of artists. It brings together the most important voices from each world with the aim of presenting the state of the art in the NFT space.

The acronym NFT stands for non-fungible token. NFTs certify that a digital asset is unique and therefore not interchangeable. If you collect NFTs, you purchase tokens and the objects associated with them. These objects can be anything, for example, digital works of art or virtual real estate, music pieces or card collections. The NFT is stored on the blockchain, it is unique, authenticated, and cannot be forged.

Until now, digital art has not had the same value as painting because it could be easily copied and shared. The new technology is revolutionizing the art market: it ensures that digital art can finally be collected just like traditional painting or sculpture.

MISA offers NFTs minted by artists on the primary market. Art can not only be bought, but also be sold on the secondary market. With every secondary market sale the seller receives 90%, the remaining 10% cover the Artist's Resale Right and service charges.

MISA makes NFTs accessible for everyone. Non crypto-native users can easily purchase an NFT using a credit card, the wallet is automatically created at checkout. They can view their collection using only an email. It is also possible to pay in crypto currencies such as ETH and Bitcoin. Available are unique artworks, limited and open editions.

MISA is built on Flow, a fast, decentralized, and environmentally friendly blockchain, designed as the foundation for a new generation of games, apps, and the digital assets that power them. It is a proof of stake blockchain which allows for overall lower transaction fees. Flow uses less than 1GWh of power in a year. Ethereum in comparison uses approximately 8TWh per year.

Voluntary donation

After over a decade of serving the international photography community Der Greif is now finally a registered non-profit. We believe this organizational structure best reflects our artistic and cultural mission. As always, your artistic contribution makes our work on Der Greif possible.

Since starting Guest Room in January 2015, we’ve been working hard to invite a broad range of practitioners, from gallerists to editors and curators. We are convinced that this format is an interesting and low-barrier approach to help artists get their work in front of people who might be interested in working with them. For this reason, we are asking you to consider making a financial contribution as well. That’s why we’re suggesting a voluntary donation of 5 € as a submission fee. 100% of the funds we collect from your donations will go towards helping us continue providing interesting opportunities for the photography community through Guest Room, and thus expand Der Greif.

We believe in inclusivity. We don’t want this suggested donation to stand in the way of your submission. If you are unable to contribute financially, please send an email to voucher@dergreif.org to receive a voucher code which will allow you to enter for free.
