The organizers of the 24th Gabrovo Biennial of Humour and Satire in Art invite artists to contribute their edgy takes on the concept of the public sphere. The exhibition will present contemporary art and cartoons addressing the following topics:
- public space
- public art
- public debate
- public broadcasting
- public interest
- public threat/security
- and other whatchamacallis with public dimension
47 years of poking fun at issues of utmost social significance give us the confidence that it is time to call on humour in order to deconstruct and redefine whatever is left of the concept of publicness.
The twenty-fourth edition of the Biennial will open on May 17th, 2019. The works selected by the jury will be on display at the Museum of Humour and Satire from May 18th until September 30th, 2019. The Biennial will feature a competition and a curated exhibition. The competition will be held in two sections – cartoon and contemporary art.
The full conditions of entry and the entry-form are published on the Biennial website www.biennial.humorhouse.bg
In order to apply, artists should fill in the online form with their proposals until March 8th, at midnight, Bulgarian time (GTM+2). The selection of the works will be done by an international panel of jurors. The selected artists must send their original works within the indicated deadline.
