[Nettime-nl] Exporuimte gezocht v. Ecuador's Olie: tegen welke prijs? expo


Voor een van onze Art for Social Change projecten OLIE: tegen welke prijs
? zijn wij op zoek naar enkele geschikte expositie ruimten:

1 ruimte in Amsterdam
1 ruimte in Rotterdam
1 ruimte in Utrecht
1 ruimte in Den Haag is voorzien...

Bij voorkeur publieksruimten waar we een opening kunnen houden en de
materialen daarna een a twee weken kunnen blijven.

Het gaat voornamelijk om materialen verzameld op onze reportagereis van
afgelopen jaar en bewerkt voor een tentoonstelling. Zoals canvassprints,
filmpjes en diverse texten. Eventueel met een beamer.

De tentoonstellingen vinden bij voorkeur einde zomer, komend najaar of
winter plaats..

Op onze website vind u meer info over de achtergrond:

Tips en suggesties welkom...

Met vriendelijke groet,

ART FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
a belief in cultural, creative and integral expression as a means to
affecting deep and lasting social change

Art for Social Change is creative expression that emerges from artists to
improve individual and collective circumstances. Art for Social Change
involves an understanding of creation that includes not only objects,
but also geographic locations, groups of people and collective
consciousness.

Social artists are concerned with the many ways art can function, like
community development, the environment, education, intergenerational
communication, healthcare, technology, politics, conflict resolution,
community regeneration and cultural citizenship. They are working in all
media, in all disciplines, in all locations.

Social artists are committed to bringing the arts to bear on the widest
possible range of social conditions and challenges facing our society.
These efforts seek to create social change at every level of society,
from personal to political.

At the heart of this social vision is a belief in cultural and creative
expression as a means to affecting deep and lasting social change. Art
becomes a political act, a conscious effort to facilitate and
participate in social change.

Art for Social Change is an expression of both individual and group
identity. All creative expression is an expression of both individual
and group life. Instead of an isolated individual, the artist serves as
a cultural catalyst of social intervention and transformation.

Through art, we can challenge many of our society's deepest assumptions,
such as the boundaries between self and other, 'artist' and
'non-artist', present and past, male and female, young and old, 'normal'
and 'abnormal'. The social artist builds upon the power of artistic
creation and expression to spark new ideas, catalyze critical thinking,
elicit new actions, inspire individuals and create visions.

If the majority of the people do not believe in the possibility and the
rightness of their common cause, nothing long-lasting will be changed.
This is where art and artists play an essential role. If we want
freedom, we must promote free expression. If we want equity, we must
have equal access and support in expressing ourselves.

If we want respect, love and beauty among us and others, we must actively
promote it through our art.
