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:
2016, Vídeo. 2:21. #Schengend_25 is a video related to the internal borders of the European Union. These borders are able to be closed thanks to the 25th article of the Schengen Code. So, despite the fact that we think that the Schengend area's borders are opened, this is not true because our free circulation through the area sometimes is forbidden. Since 2006, these exceptions have happened more than 60 times. In conclusion, European internal borders usually are closed so is the end of Schengen.
