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:
Let's be world-famous, but not in this way

Author:
Julia Vegh

Description:
In my work you can see some protesters on the street, some without faces, with banners in their hands. One of the banners has the inscription Let’s be world-famous, but not in this way” on it, which also became the title of this work. I took the original picture and created a new fictitious surrounding around the original. So the collage now has a new, independent meaning from the original. 14,5x21 cm Acrylic on plastic film
