The invitation is addressed to all the interested people, artists and students. There is no entry fee. The best 10 artworks selected by an international jury panel will be printed and exhibited in the urban space of the city of Torun, Poland in September/October 2016.

The entries can be sent by electronic mail until 20 July 2016, 0:00 CET, to the following address: artmoves(at)tlen.pl

The competition is a part of 9th Festival of Art on Billboards Art Moves.

The artwork is supposed to be a creative response to this year’s competition theme: Under pressure. How to be yourself in the contemporary oppressive world?

This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor of all the processes taking place in the world today. We live under constant pressure: of time, perfection, success, exorbitant requirements. Different pressure groups – politicians, media, corporations, fundamentalists, radicals – exert pressure on us. However, not only they – we also exert pressure on ourselves. Omnipresent pressure and chaos of contradictory messages we receive intensify our fear. Our internal pressure is growing – it tells us to constantly raise the bar, work more and faster, live more intensely. The pressure never stops – we experience it from the cradle to the grave. How to be yourself in such a situation? The advertising message we are bombarded with tells us: be yourself and at the same time be like others and choose this or that product. Is it possible to be yourself and like others at the same time? What does it mean to be yourself? Is it worth being yourself – the only one, unique human being? How to do it in the contemporary oppressive world?
