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:
TWO SIDES OF THE SAME CAN

Author:
NATASHA SARKAR

Description:
When you grab that big can of soda, do you, for a fleeting moment, think about how our desires have overshadowed our needs? Will we always buy more? Is greed our only true religion? Is happiness just a possession away? Surely an increasingly consumerist culture generates more waste, for the consumption of goods that use up resources in their production and generate waste materials also means more degradation of the natural environment. The artwork aims at triggering healthy and sustainable patterns of consumption.
