What is the purpose of our campaign?
The corona crisis represents changes, challenges, new ideas and much more. We want to record this extraordinary time – in the form of art-works from as many artists as possible, from all over the world. It‘s about expressing your own experiences and involvement – it is different for pretty much everyone, depending on the environment in which we live. Artists in Switzerland, Germany or Austria may be little affected in their everyday lives, whereas creatives in New York, Brazil, Uganda or Russia painfully feel the destructive violence with which the virus sweeps away all of the familiar, and above all takes so many lives.
The idea is to artistically express your personal experiences by – painting, knitting, modeling, photographing or presenting it in any way you choose. Crucially, the works must be sent to us in poster form.
All submissions in poster form will be documented and published in a catalog. This creates an impressive piece of contemporary history. For us, for now, for review, for the future. A top-class jury selects the best 20 posters from of all the submissions, which are then exhibited in the LICHT FELD Gallery. On the occasion of the vernissage, we plan to premier the Catalog. We anticipate this to be a brilliant and moving reflection of the crisis.
