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 painting shows two of the world most famous couple,Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are being looked up to as royalty and as a symbol of what it is to be a wealthy independent man and woman. I have painted Kim Kardashian in a hijab to experiment with our perception of women. In relation to this topic, Trump became president og Kanye West announced that he will run for president in 2020. It seems like a lot can be possible these days, and at the same time not. Could you ever imagine a first lady wearing a hijab? And could she ever bee looked up to as powerful and not oppressed?
