Billboard Art Competition Art Moves 2021 now is over!
Billboard Art Competition Art Moves 2021 has been recently opened for entries and like every year invites all artists interested in billboard art, especially the young ones, to prepare an artwork in response to this year’s competition theme ’Getting infected with untruth. How can we find our path in a world full of contradictions, chaos and uncertainty?’
The Art Moves Festival is hosting its international Billboard Art Competition Art Moves 2021 with a purpose to propagate and popularize billboard art and to encourage artists to create art engaged in the reality.
Submitted artworks are supposed to be creative responses to this year’s competition theme: 'Getting infected with untruth. How can we find our path in a world full of contradictions, chaos and uncertainty?'
This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor of all the processes taking place in the world today. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown that the notion of truth is a fundamental problem in the contemporary world, posing a challenge for individuals, societies and the globalised contemporary world. Until quite recently, we did not notice this problem and it seemed to us that we could do without the concept of truth. The current global crisis connected with the pandemic has made us aware of the fact that our own subjective beliefs, opinions and feelings are not sufficient. In order to function properly, individuals and societies need something more, something that we have considered to be out of fashion and passé – objective truth. Humans’ species name is homo sapiens, which means ‘wise man’. Sticking to objective facts and referring to objective reality help us function in this complex contemporary world. Is it worth taking up the challenge of reaching the truth? Is it at all possible? How can we recognise what is true and what is false? Who is a role model that we can trust, and who is a self-proclaimed internet ‘expert’? Does each person has his/her own truth, or is there objective truth? Who and what should we believe?
