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:
This sculpture is based on the Statue of Liberty in the USA. It stands over 8 meters tall when fully erect but is always intentionally exhibited in a state of collapse. It can be exhibited in many configurations as it is made of many panels from 2”x2 “construction timber and screws. The Statue of Liberty, is seen as an icon of freedom in the USA and designed as a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving in New York by sea, but is it still a symbol of freedom and inclusion? Video: https://youtu.be/Qz22ePx64Ho Sculpture:420cm x 350cm x 350cm. How can art catalyze change?: By exhibiting a partially deconstructed and falling apart Statue of Liberty this sculpture asks the viewer to consider the demise of liberty and freedoms across the world Its construction from panels allows both its deconstruction and the hope of its re-construction.. Can we rebuild the values it once held?
