Avant-Garde Dating is a new experimental dating service for artists. Very experimental. Hosted by Wooloo, an artists-run organization based in Berlin, it’s not for actually for dating at all, but exists soley to host a competition exploring issues associated with relationships. To apply, artists must explain how they will pry at the sticky conventions of monogamous love, challenge the very idea of artistic collaboration and/or explore one of the other diverse stereotypes of human pairing. Based on the applications, a Dating Board will pair artists off with each other, then later judge the “winners”, as three of these couples will be later awarded a one week exhibition during the Art Forum in Berlin to “further explore the concept of human partnering.” No, I am not applying.
edit: yay brian! any other takers? this has shuffled to the urgent pile of my things-to-get-done.
