Call for Entries: 6. International Marianne Brandt Contest

Call for Entries: 6. International Marianne Brandt Contest
Call for Entries: 6. International Marianne Brandt Contest

The International Marianne Brandt Contest is a juried competition supporting works that ask: What can we and what should we create today? Along with its motto "The Poetry of the Functional" it supports works that aim to explore the potential for poetry and beauty in the sense of an art of living.

Entries are possible in three categories:
Product Design
Photography
Experimental Design

The theme of the 2016 competition — “Material Effects” — draws upon the question of today’s understanding of material – before the overarching background of shifting material topographies through global consumption and transformations of today’s landscapes, it is also suggesting the materials own agency and our way of relating to it.

The creative legacy of the Bauhaus artist Marianne Brandt is the origin of the competition, a further reference point of the competition therefore is the heritage of modernism and the ideas of the Bauhaus'.

The award is endowed with a prize of 15,000 Euro which will be presented in three categories. In addition, three honorable mentions will be announced in each category. Special, company-donated prizes will be awarded as well.

Competitive entries are expected to address issues about the contemporary use of material in a visibly and contextually clear way, with an artistic, scientific and creative treatment of the topic that considers ecological, social, economic and cultural effects.

The contest is open to emerging artists worldwide under the age of 40.

Each participant will obtain a free copy of the book accompanying the contest.
