- A CALL FOR ARTWORK

 
 
...angry artworks is looking for submissions from artists / visual creators for an exhibition / publication in 2010. 101 Damnations will be a collection of detourned / re-appropriated / subverted imagery based on logos, graphics and slogans which attacks, belittles, challenges, identifies, mocks, questions, satirises and generally scorns capitalism and neoliberal globalisation in its various forms - from greedy corporations, polluting industries and war profiteering enterprises to sweatshop encouraging companies, union busting businesses and media manipulating multinationals... etc! Although this project is about a visual reaction to the forces of capitalism it is also a resource for those trying to understand it and fight it - so it is hoped each image (or group of images) will have an accompanying weblink to a resource - e.g. an organisation, a solidarity campaign, reading materials, documentation of previous struggles or current direct actions...
