"State of creation" exhibition - Call for entries
Deadline: April 18, 2010
Is it the State or the state (of creation)? It can be both, and more. A state can both be a political border, a stage between differences, and an emotion. When you are in the state of creation you are in a place where the laws are based on play, possibilities, imagination and craft. Solutions are found there. At the source of creation is often the idea which needs a ground to flourish. This means a space open for initiatives outside the bounds of politics and exclusion. Creation leads to changes & innovation and initiates processes of progress. In Luxembourg, in a European and interregional context, Art meets Business. A spirit of creation is the source of both. Open societies are reflective on ideas, promoting and supporting initiatives, working on social issues, willing to change. The artists participating in this exhibition offer works based on these ideas. The organizers look forward to showcasing new works of digital art and modern photography in which the artists share their interpretations of the State of creation.
