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:
S70 LINE. Inner words you can read if it starts to rain

Author:
Simona Da Pozzo

Description:
S70 Line is a video retracing an ephemeral intervention. The video is a subjective of a person waiting for the bus in lonely places: when it starts to rain, the water develops "complicity words" on the ground surface as an acid does with photos in a darkroom. Those words are part of Glocary research: a participative glossary of words born as tactile and emotional records. They are the result of interviews I've realized in public contexts in Italy, Germany and Lebanon. https://vimeo.com/177565973 http://glocary.tumblr.com
