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:
Three worlds and a half of America

Author:
Poplawska Julia

Description:
A video Three worlds and a half of America shows in a poetic way the problem of using the image of a woman's body by advertising in the process of goods production. It is a reflection about the commerciallisation and sexualization of every area of our life. This topic is presented with the background of a class society. I was inspired by silicon ball which I found at Chinese market. First time when I looked at the ball I felt that somebdy made a joke from woman's attribute. Afterward, I started to observe how the image of woman's body exists in a public space. A silicon, antistress ball in a shape of woman's breast is visible in every scene what makes a connection beetwen all of the social stratum. Here you are pleased to find a link of the video: http://www.juliapoplawska.com/Trzy-swiaty-i-pol-Ameryki-Three-worlds-and-a-half-of-America-2016
