Unclean Project – Call for Artworks


June 2014 SomoS Art House dedicates its program to the theme of “uncleanliness”.

In ancient cultures certain animals, rituals, moral attitudes, behaviours, beliefs, sicknesses or even blood were all considered unclean. Still today, collective preconceived opinions or feelings, either favorable or unfavorable, have a great impact on society and the individual.

For the Unclean Project SomoS is looking to give space for artworks and performances dealing with the issues of self-identification and/or social exclusion based on common taboos and prejudices such as body image, sexual orientation, beliefs or disabilities.

All international artists working in all media are welcome to participate.
