The 7th edition of the BMW Art Guide by @independent_collectors@hatjecantzverlag presents 304 private yet publicly accessible collections of contemporary art — featuring large and small, famous and the relatively unknown. Succinct portraits of the collections with color photographs take the reader to 51 countries and 224 cities, often to regions that are off the beaten path.
The Videoinsight® Foundation announces the 2022 Edition of the Videoinsight® Prize, an international Award aimed at promoting Contemporary Art.
The Prize is open to all Artists, without limits of age, sex, nationality or other qualification.
The title of the Open Call for Artists is ‘ Love bombing. Gas lighting ‘.
The theme is the perverse narcissism, in its various facets: love bombing, isolation, manipulation, control, lies, gaslighting, destruction, empathy and emotional dependence of the victim.
Each Artist can participate by presenting an Artwork.
The image, accompanied by stylistic and technical data (artist name, title, year, technique, size) must be sent, between January 17, 2022 and March 21, 2022, to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
The candidate works will be evaluated by an expert Jury on the basis of their artistic and psychological issues.
The winning work will win the Videoinsight® Prize, will be acquired and will become part of the Videoinsight® Collection.
The finalist artists will participate
– to an Exhibition that will take place in the Videoinsight® Center in Turin during the days of The Phair (May 2022)
– to a Collective Show that will take place in the same location on the occasion of Artissima (November 2022)
