‘Space, Shade, State’ includes
A competition for young people aged between 17 and 21
An exhibition of twenty five of the submitted works
A Symposium in which academics, educators and young people will participate and which will deal with democratic practices in education and the role of art in this process
The thematic of this competition and art exhibition will deal with the multiple understandings of the notion of ‘home’. The concept of home is both personal and universal. The competition uses the allegory as a starting point for exploring the multiple notions of the home, which today appear as something ambiguous and intensely charged due to particular sociopolitical conditions. The ‘home’ after all can metaphorically represent a building, a commonality, a homeland or an affiliation between groups of people.
The Duration of the competition has been extended to Tuesday 02/04/2013.
