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:
To Be Rich / To Be Poor, To Be Developed / To Be Under-Developed What does it all mean today? How do we define Welfare?  Is the western definition of wealth still relevant? "We", the First-World dwellers, seem to know how to use resources, how to design and then make, how to exploit and develop. Our focus is on THINGS. Still, do we know how to FEEL? Do we know how to ENJOY the elements? These photographs were taken at the "La Baie des Assassins", Madagascar, in January 2017
