Open call to degenerate artists.
Are you A Degenerate Artist?
Yes? Good. This suggests your work fails to reach the physical, mental and moral qualities considered normal and desirable.
The Nazis invented the term (Entartete Kunst) and confiscated any art they could apply it to. They then toured over 650 works from some of the most influential artists of the 20th century in the bizarre hope of showing it’s moral and aesthetic shortcomings.
The Degenerate Art GONG Show (the third in a series of Art GONG Shows) aims to draw a new line in the sand between modern concepts of decency in art on one side, and the degenerates on the other. Who are the new Nazis? The Arts Council? The Curators? The Daily Mail?
We are looking for visual art, sound, digital or performance work that shows evidence of, or deals directly with, physical, mental or moral decline.
The work will be shown to a panel of experts and a voting audience at The Latest Bar, Brighton on May 23rd. You may speak about the work and you will be asked questions.
The winner gets a cash prize and the artist with the fewest votes will be banned from showing such work for one year.

The audience then comment or ask questions.
The Gong is is rung to denote moments of significance. These can be salient questions, moments of clarity, confusion, boredom or poetry.

The Digital Art GONG Show will take place at the Fabrica gallery on Monday 10th September 8-11pm.
