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:
VIA MUSICA

Author:
Sigrid Keunen

Description:
It’s a guided tour that connects different layers of music, history, architecture and our own experiences and knowledge. Music is the guide in this tour, and we, as its protagonists, have the possibility to engage with it in many different ways; we are invited to make connections between realities we were not aware of. The project aspires to be less didactic and more empowering, less obvious and more creative. The main question is how to rediscover the realities we are trying to unearth in a new way within the principle goal: inviting audiences to become the real designers of their experience.
