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:
In Between

Author:
Claudia Schmitz

Description:
Schmitz recycles found plastic bags into wind-activated sculptures. Installed in the streets in different cities, they serve as 3dimensional, moving silverscreens for her videoprojections. In Between is about privilege and waste, abundance and misery, about social borders, border crossings, and community. It returns the city’s waste to the citizens in the form of free, public art. The core of Schmitz’ artistic motivation is to explore socio-urban fabrics, and challenging hegemonial perception, including her own.
