Artists are invited to prepare an artwork in response to this year’s competition theme “More or less freedom?”
This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor of all the processes taking place in the world today. Freedom was and still is a word of great value. At the same time, freedom is a paradoxical word. This is one of the fundamental ideas that drive individual and social life. In the history of mankind, great and wonderful, but also tragic things happened in the name of freedom. Paradoxically, freedom is most easily defined and appreciated when one tastes its lack (e.g. in a totalitarian state). When we have it, we do not notice it and it rapidly loses its real value – we take it for granted. So, what is freedom then? Is freedom essential to life? Should it be unlimited or have some limits? Can other people limit our freedom – because they also have a right to feel free? Is freedom responsibility or rather doing what one feels like doing? What do we really need? What do you need? More or less freedom?
