Kunst im Untergrund 2020/21 – as above, so below

Call for submissions Germany-wide open single-phase competition. “as above, so below” focuses attention both on the underground railway network and on above-ground lines of connection, rethinking the city in artistic terms. When thinking about urban connections in this way, it also becomes possible to address concepts of freedom and notions of sustainability, prosperity, and justice in the context of a finite living environment. The competition aims not to develop a utopia, but to use artistic interventions to encourage public debate about such a utopia. Production costs of up to €8,000 per work, plus €4,000 fee (including VAT) are to be provided.

Deadline: Monday, 27 July 2020

Organizer: nGbK
