Achtung! Artists: OPEN CALL for WORKS: The Gift as a Problem (Exhibition)
Group Global 3000, Arts and other Sustainabilities
To give means, at the base, to waive something that belongs to you so that anyone someone else can have and enjoy it. It is a proof of generosity, affection, respect and also of power. But what does a present mean nowadays? We have all that we need in the industrialized world. What do we give as gift nowadays? Every year, the market produces a unsustainable, immense quantity of things. A waste of energy and materials is needed every year for their manufacture, promotion and sale, as well as their later recycling, destruction or storage, from department stores’ stockrooms to our basements. The receiver is confronted with a problem: not needing to use the gift.
How does art respond to this? What suggestions, what solutions? We invite all interested artists, to take part in this exhibition with their ideas and artworks.
Free format (objects, photo, painting, graphics, video, sound and also performances)
