>> “WALK ON EGGSHELLS!” FOLIE/CULTURE (CANADA)

  3. How can social tensions be addressed through art under the aegis of the culture of commentary and the benevolent gaze of fellow artists?
  4. In the age of the all-profiled and all-controlled, what is happening to politically engaged art and its potential for protest?
  5. Crumbling under the innumerable burdens brought about by our neo-liberalist system and in the face of the resulting exhaustion and medication use, how can we reasonably speak up?

Application deadline: 15 March 2020
