THEME – Book Power Redux is seeking works addressing social and political issues. Artist books can be a powerful vehicle for social change and activism. For this show we have a strong interest in works that shine a light on some of the most vital issues of our day: race, diversity, equality, justice, bullying, poverty, civil rights and more. And, don’t forget we are still a country at war.
Book artists have a unique opportunity given our accessible, multi-dimensional, multi-media format to go beyond just making things to making things happen. The current social and political issues listed above are but a few topics concerned artists can use to raise consciousness, call for justice or provoke action. Let’s use our creative powers to solve the problems of the world.
