24th Gabrovo Biennial of Humour in Art - call for entries

The 24th Gabrovo Biennial of Humour and Satire in Art, Bulgaria invites artists to contribute their edgy takes on the concept of the public sphere. The exhibition will present contemporary art and cartoons addressing:

-public space
-public art
-public debate
-public broadcasting
-public interest
-public threat/security
-and other whatchamacallits 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 nowadays of the concept of publicness.
