This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor of all the processes taking place in the world today. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown that the notion of truth is a fundamental problem in the contemporary world, posing a challenge for individuals, societies and the globalised contemporary world. Until quite recently, people did not notice this problem and it seemed to them that they could do without the concept of truth. The current global crisis connected with the pandemic has made people aware of the fact that their own subjective beliefs, opinions and feelings are not sufficient. In order to function properly, individuals and societies need something more, something that they have considered to be out of fashion and passé – objective truth. Humans’ species name is homo sapiens, which means ‘wise man’. Sticking to objective facts and referring to objective reality help them function in this complex contemporary world. Is it worth taking up the challenge of reaching the truth? Is it at all possible? How can people recognise what is true and what is false? Who is a role model that people can trust, and who is a self-proclaimed internet ‘expert’? Does each person has his/her own truth, or is there objective truth? Who and what should we believe?
The Competition is open and all artists interested in billboard art are invited to take part. The purpose of the Competition is to propagate and popularize billboard art and to encourage artists to create art engaged in the reality.
