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:
Work is a combination of a real photo and photoshop intervention which represents how human impose into peaceful nature. Shoe sole represents truth that is known by author only, meanwhile general public can only see (modified) traces. In the background is a famous photography of the first footprint on the moon, taken by NASA. I chose it on purpose because of its boundless achivement that is represented to general public while the issue of hidden truth stays unspoken.
