TAM-TAM Inštitut is announcing the 13th international PLAKTIVAT competition in designing a city poster on the topic of “SOLIDARITY”. At a time of growing conflicts between people of opposing views and lifestyles, which are further bolstered by populisms, radicalisms, the media, and all manner of algorithms, their previous definition of solidarity is being tested and with it, the democratic and civilizational values upon which Europe and most of the western world are founded. If extremely individualised nature of their society is added, which all too often places the individual and their personal freedom ahead of the interests of the community, the social consensus upon which solidarity is based is in peril.
The competition challenge is activating individuals to proactively deliberate on the social concept of solidarity, which became even more jeopardised due to the pandemic. Their action aims to encourage and strengthen solidarity in society, open the discussion about the fundamental values of solidarity, and reflect on the significance of solidarity in developing a better society in the future.
