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:
The concept of a transfer art works from the techniques of a deep print in a high print, in tha case graphics to ceramic‘s tiles shows how far the wasteland of “ playing back playing” can go. The unpredictability and spontaneity of graphics converted into a illustrations, a pixels instead of a stains aren‘t bad manipulations because it is always a truth that we have to think in what we see, that we colud see something. The lines of a human bodies as pinnacles the energy of a kitsch are celebrating the worthlessness a intimacy of the graphics on the ceramic‘s in the spirit of a lost spirituality. The ornamental human bancrupty and a triviality of existence in the design is a magical, symbolic and decorative function of tiles. The vision of a spiritual downfall is especially feeling by a drawing attention to the ends of tiles and all the pages because the tiles on the following pages of any other tiles with which are accidentally connected together and continue own paths. The conclusion is a permissible to rotating tiles by a free will, connecting and assembling to the infinity.
