The Open Call for the Social Art Award 2019 under the topic “We are the People – Peaceful Revolutions” was closed on December 15, 2019. We are very impressed by 558 submissions that were contributed by artists coming from 65 countries across all continents. 

The winners of The Social Art Award 2019 are Narcissa Gold (USA), Melinda Mouzannar (Lebanon) and Bogna Grazyna Jaroslawski (Poland/Germany). The Honorary Mention goes to Kingson Kin Sing Chan (Hong Kong/UK). 

Below you find the artworks, that passed the initial jury round. The public voting took place till 30 December and is a tool to give more public visibility to the topic and the artworks. It does not replace the final jury judgment. There were two wildcards for the most voted artworks that entered the final shortlist

The focus diversity of applications shows that artists are active in the multi-faceted fields of socially engaged art reflecting on wars, genocides, femicides, traumata, violence against refugees, children, women, men, disabled people, LGBTIQs, animals. They share feelings for the planet and its living species, but also showing hopelessness due to complex crises be it climate change (e.g. in regard to water pollution), capitalism, corruption, a violation against human rights, nature, protected national parks. Many of the artists are constantly trying to give a voice to the poorest or empower unheard social groups.

It’s not only about peaceful revolutions, but it’s also about feeling a deep connection and showing love and respect for each other.
Thank you all for sharing your great and inspirational work and look at all the great contributions!

With the theme of women, whether they are a matter of gender identity, myths and representations. The issue of women and their symbolic representations were the context in which we carried out the audiovisual project. A film that talks about women and their bodies, resistance ,sorority and feminism. Collective of women from Brazil, Sao Tome and Principe, Cabo Verde, Portugal, Russia, Italy, Belgium and France. Femmes et Muses - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kj_nUOKJs6I How can art catalyze change?: Art must necessarily think of its own time and dialogue with it and a unique way of reflecting its ways, which is already a form of change through the awareness that it can arouse. Dictatorial times shut art because they recognize in it the value of expanding knowledge and critically intervening in the world.
