CALL: Sabotage

For 2019, CHEAP is heading back out on the streets with your posters and we are asking you to re-imagine yourselves as saboteurs: think of it as an open invitation to semiotic guerrilla warfare.

We are calling on you to produce new signs, to create and recreate meaning, to demystify with style: to forge connections and pose challenges, to sabotage and subvert.

Be contradictory: present us with new forms of inference, chart new narrative routes, produce new partialities.

Be critical: unexpectedly redefine the order in your own surroundings, reinterpret your worlds, perform an act of collective hacking that breathes new life into the existing aesthetic paradigm.

What we are looking for is a response from the bottom up: overturn, manipulate, shake up and subvert codes, create short circuits.

CALL: Disorder, please.

“We are looking to stir up semantic disturbances and upset the limits of artistic languages, using the public space where CHEAP displays the work received in response to the call for artists every year to break down the aesthetic order based on good/bad, respectable/vandalistic, legal /illegal dichotomies.

We call on you to gauge the degree of your systems’ entropy, to join us in violating symmetries and structuring excess, to give a shape to commotion.

We do not seek synthesis and innocuous answers do not interest us: we need more conflict, new tensions, excesses and contradictions. DISORDER, please!
