Politics Now: the art or sausage making
Deadline: 08/06/2016 | Location: Illinois
Realpolitik (n.) “politics based on practical and material factors rather than on theoretical or ethical objectives” Merriam-Webster “Politics is the art of the possible” Otto Von Bismark, 1867 interview “Laws, like sausages, cease to inspire respect in proportion as we know how they are made.” John Godfrey Saxe, University Chronicle, University of Michigan, 1869 Union Street Gallery invites artists to submit work that engages with our history and politics now. This is an important time to engage with art that promotes contemplation of our current and past social, political, economic, etc. conditions, in order to think about how they inform the future. Union Street Gallery does not want to support the divisive and overly negative conversations that have been too prevalent in the recent past; but rather we encourage a rigorous, thoughtful, cogent, and clever reflection of these times. Political satire and free speech are cornerstones of the American political and social landscape and should not be discounted; yes we ask that your wit and talent not be used as a weapon, but rather a mirror or magnifying glass. Artwork engaging with the above theme can do so through the design, concept, or construction of the artwork. All media is welcome for submission.
