Our fourth and final call for artists is on the theme of ‘Hybrid War’. The exhibition will be launched in the week running up to the National Assembly elections in Venezuela, a nation which has fought tooth and nail against the brutal hybrid war imposed by imperialist powers, led by the US.
This is the last call to anti-imperialist posters for the next while, so if you have been waiting to participate but were unsure, your time is now!
The text below serves as a guide on how we understand hybrid wars, which we invite you to interpret visually. We have included links to some resources below to deepen your understanding of hybrid wars.
HYBRID WAR: No sense in merely bombing a country if you can get away with eroding its power through economic war, information war, diplomatic war, and – yes – sabotage.
Information: Title of work, full name, country, organization (optional), social media handle (optional).
Colour: Any – orange emphasis recommended for visual unity between posters.
Visual Identity: Incorporate the logo of the International Week of Anti-Imperialist Struggle and Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research in art work (link)
Language: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, French (Minimize text for wider accessibility)
Jointly curated between Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research and the International Week of Anti-Imperialist Struggle, the exhibition will be hosted on the Week’s website and distributed as a digital catalogue, with all credits given to the participating artists. The posters will be made available to the hundreds of movements that are participating in this anti-imperialist process. We ask that the artists to creatively incorporate the logos of the Week and Tricontinental so that they will also be our visual tools in building the process itself.
