Our third call for artists is on the theme of 'Imperialism'. The exhibition will be launched in conjunction with the International Week of Anti-Imperialist Struggle week of actions planned in October 2020.
The text below serves as a guide on how we understand imperialism, which we invite you to interpret visually. We have included links to some resources below to deepen your understanding of imperialism.
IMPERIALISM: Few countries have built enormous militaries and control international systems of trade and finance in order to plunder natural resources, exploit workers, and increase and consolidate profits and power. These countries, controlled by their corporations, bully the rest of the world to do their bidding.
Information: Title of work, full name, country, organization (optional), social media handle (optional).
Colour: Any – purple 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.
