21st Century Neanderthal open call
Details21st century Neanderthal is a research into today’s online dating world seen through artists’ eyes, mixed with every day’s righteousness and immorality.
The impersonality of online dating caused us to question the behaviour of current society. We invite artists to step into this digital world where fantasy and reality blur, where the lines cross and the perfect version of the truth is never quite what it seems. Communication is contorted as the rules no longer apply.
Things are sometimes easier to understand if they are put into art form. Some rough experiences may be overcome when one takes time to transform them into art. The unsuspecting dating site users might become warned of potential dangers or distressing situations. Someone might just be sharing their hilarious story of a disasterous date that they will be telling their grandchildren.
This exhibition challenges and exposes these online experiences through art, engaging visitors to share their own.
Curated by Nina Jesih.
