Award 2019

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 (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!

Description:
As an artist, visual art teacher I work since 2018 on my dissertation wich deals with object oriented, non-anthropocentric approach of environmental education. We are using the philosophy of Slavoj Zizek, Timothy Morton, Graham Harman and OOO to reframe, reconfigure human based concepts as environment, capacity of activism, space, pollution and those connections. My applications are about two actions with students from 2017, 2018 composed in a poster work, with texts. We worked on the problem of neo-nazi ideology, pollution, political decisions and all their symptoms. How can art catalyze change?: Artistic practice through experienc can help to frame the right questions and it is abble to draw up relevant questions to science too. Artistic education is much more as a field of reproducing, copying.
