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.

Description:
The artwork consists of 3 parts in the exhibition context. A rack with finding wood, a role with white cotton fabric and a base with cards. The cards serve as a bearer for the core of the work. They offer an action instruction. The finding wood and the white cotton fabric serve as a direct possibility of the conversion in the showroom. By the spatially separate presentation of the three objects, it lies with the recipient to understand this as a piece of art or material. The action instruction can be carried out at any other place, with freely eligible materials. It is not necessary to finish all three points of the instruction. A steadily growing collection of pictures originates on the Internet, linked with #peacenegotiator. Thematically the work aims at the function of a peacenegotiator which is described in the Haager Landkriegsordnung of 1899 in the section 32. This person is to be understood as ready to communicate and settling. He tries to step with her opponent in an open discourse and is ready to go a dangerous way. Besides, the condition of the reassurance and notification is to be transferred on every situation in the private or political context. The white flag gives the right of inviolability to her bearer, besides, in extreme situations.
