> DESCRIPTION

Art is “fragile;” “do not touch;” “do not cross the line” surrounding an artwork. But the space for the beholders behind the line is also subject to certain rules of behavior. That our approach to art is ruled by conventions becomes clearly visible when we consider the capacity for critique attributed to art and the refusal of regulation.

If the art space is public, debate is broadened, and comes to focus on attitudes about the freedom to act in cultural space. This competition understands itself as an international contribution to the debate, as a platform for the exchange on restrictive relations in the supposedly free space of art.
