Artist Call: 101 Damnations

March 29, 2009

This just fell into the inbox:

angry artworks is looking for submissions from artists / visual creators for an exhibition/publication in 2010. 101 Damnations will be a collection of detourned/re-appropriated/subverted imagery based on logos, graphics and slogans which attacks, belittles, challenges, identifies, mocks, questions, satirises and generally scorns capitalism and neoliberal globalisation in its various forms – from greedy corporations, polluting industries and war profiteering enterprises to sweatshop encouraging companies, union busting businesses and media manipulating multinationals… etc! Although this project is about a visual reaction to the forces of capitalism it is also a resource for those trying to understand it and fight it – so it is hoped each image (or group of images) will have an accompanying weblink to a resource – e.g. an organisation, a solidarity campaign, reading materials, documentation of previous struggles or current direct actions…
