Unbound: Documentary as Art

Unbound invites artists to submit work that pose questions such as: How do we document experiences that leave no material evidence? How do we turn documentary into art to advocate for our communities? Is food documentary? Is dance documentary? Is Facebook documentary?

By reimagining documentary as art, Unbound will provide a radical and innovative space for artists to access a wider spectrum of reality. We are looking for works with diverse concepts in any medium. The term documentary should be considered a descriptive term rather than a model limited to conventional film or photo practices.
