Billboard Art Competition Art Moves 2018

Topic! Who governs our lives: we ourselves, other people or algorithms?

Artists are invited to prepare an artwork in response to this year’s competition theme Who governs our lives: we ourselves, other people or algorithms?


This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor of all the processes taking place in the world today. The human world is a collection of individuals that form small groups, societies and the entire human community. What and who decides what we are like and what we do? We ourselves, by making everyday decisions and choosing our own paths of development? Other people, e.g. neighbours, family, politicians, and celebrities who impose their own opinions and preferences on us? Or maybe corporations that use soulless algorithms to follow our lives and invisibly gather any information about us, to tell us what to do, how to behave, what we should look like, who we should vote for, who we should like, and who we should not like? Is there any space for real individuals in the world that apparently praises any individualism, but at the same tries to average all the phenomena, including individual life, and subordinate them to statistics and algorithms? Is development, both individual and collective, possible at all in such a world? Are we doomed to stagnation and omnipresent control? Is life outside the box possible at all in such a world? Or maybe there is some way out? Maybe you know the answer? Who governs our lives: we ourselves or …?
