Award 2017

The Social Art Award 2017

Can art change the world?

Under this question, the Institute for Art and Innovation e.V. had launched the first Social Art Award in 2017. Artists and cultural actors of all areas were invited to apply with their work to the field of social art. Artists from 131 countries responded with extraordinary works and projects.

On September 5, 2017, the three winners Lino Tonelotto from France, Quek Jia Qi from Singapore and Diogo da Cruz from Portugal were honored, and exhibited at WHITECONCEPTS Gallery in Berlin. They demonstrated with their politically engaged works that art can make current events visible and tangible. This is an important understanding for bringing forward the debate and thus a social change.

Title:
Rechts und Links - A Ritual

Author:
Antoanetta Marinov

Description:
Rechts und Links is a work I conceived a couple of years ago, when I was invited to participate to a Festival dedicated to art in public spaces. I submit this work - preferably to more recent ones done with and for the casual public -because Rechts and Links is easy to transport and even easy for me to execute elewhere. Rechts and Links has to do with borders transforming people in this side and that side people and with my tendency to wanting to give beauty and take away worries and sorrows when making art. It is a ritual. It consists of wood boxes containing fund objects; a black box; and a sketchbook. The participants put mentally undesired thoughts in the found objects taken from one box. The object containing the sorrowful thought end in the black box. Then the participant again puts mentally a pleasant thought in one found object taken from the other box. The object now charged with the pleasant thought is a gift for the participant. My reward: the participant writes please a couple of sentences on my sketch book that I can read when I am back home.
