Artists are invited to prepare an artwork in response to this year’s competition theme Epidemics – a global catastrophe, a punishment, or a chance to reinvent yourself and the world?
This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor of all the processes taking place in the world today. The past few months have changed the entire world – societies and countries, families and individual people. The standard rules of reality have been suspended, and we have been hiding in our homes, isolated from others and transfixed with horror. Individuals and whole societies have been overwhelmed by fear, anxiety and trauma. These tough moments and experiences have left an imprint on us, but have they changed us for the better? Is it a permanent or just a temporary change, and will the world be what it used to be? Should we quickly forget about what happened – our experiences and emotions; or maybe on the contrary, should we remember it well, think about it and draw constructive conclusions? Is it a punishment or maybe a chance to reinvent ourselves and the world in a joint global effort? How to use these difficult experiences to build a better world? What can these tough events we have all experienced in different places around the world teach us? Which of these experiences can strengthen us and the culture we live in to better cope with similar challenges in the future?
All artists interested in billboard art are invited to take part.
- 10 most interesting works will be displayed on billboards in the city space during the Art Moves Festival in September / October 2020 in Torun, Poland.
- The author of the most interesting work will receive the Main Award in the amount of PLN 5.000 (about EUR 1 127, USD 1 278).
