To displace is to dislocate from its original position, to move away into unfamiliar territory. Different places contain their culture and provide its inhabitants with the information to survive. Relocation to a particular place means one must to adapt to these circumstances for survival, demanding strength to conform to new surroundings. How would objects change if they were misplaced? How do animals or people? In what way has their home prepared them for their new environment, and what affected their development? What is now home? This project will aim at the analysis of what the term 'displacement' may bear, containing in it many answerless questions and perspectives that are still to be understood.

What is the project?

An open call for artists and writers where, after the selection process, we will now make an exhibition. 14 artists were chosen from 58 applications by a judging panel made from 5 incredible individuals from different backgrounds within the arts.

This project aims to develop an open-submission exhibition method, which gives the opportunity for young and emerging artists to submit works they have been developing based on the topic of displacement. The resources for the development of the project will all be internet based, to try and reach the biggest possible audience, giving the project an international, global, characteristic.

The aim of this project is to create an online database of artworks and to promote the participating artists. Ten artists shall be selected by a judging panel and presented on the project website.

This project is developing in three different stages:

  • The submission process, where, after its conclusion, an online exhibition will be held, showcasing a selection of the works of art alongside the artist’s profile;
  • The crowdfunding event, to raise enough funds to complete the third and last stage (we are at this moment in space and time); 
  •  An exhibition and a catalogue of the selected works and artists.
