For Bosch Parade 2024, we are now calling on artists and makers from far and wide to submit plans that embody these Contemporary Demons. 

We are looking for professional makers who, like Bosch, dare to transcend themselves and the normal. Who make us look at the world just a little differently, making it more idiosyncratic and social. And who realise that their unique work is part of a multifaceted Gesamtkunstwerk: Bosch Parade.

Those makers may be young, just starting out. Or already established, dyed-in-the-wool. All ages, nationalities, orientations and disciplines are welcome to show their imaginative powers; multidisciplinary collectives and makers who dare to look beyond the boundaries of their own practice even have an edge.

Bosch Parade exists by the grace of collaboration. With builders, painters, swimmers, actors, extras, musicians, dancers, with everything and everyone. We are especially looking for makers who involve others in their work and working methods – our ‘community’, in which we also like to give space to less obvious target groups.

Inspired? Plans can be submitted until Wednesday 19 April 2023; you can read all about the Open Call, the conditions and the procedure here. In May, the artists who, in the eyes of the jury, have submitted the most interesting proposals will be invited for an interview.
