We want to set an example in times of the Covid-19 crisis and general curfew and promote the creativity of those who sit at home and do not know what to do with themselves.
We call on artists to send us a work dealing with the new phenomenon of social distancing. We are currently facing involuntary quarantine and isolation. From one day to the next, you can no longer live as you have always been used to. What does it do to humans? What happens to the public space without the usual dynamic? How does this dynamic shift into private, at home? How does it change interpersonal relationships when social distancing becomes everyday life? Do we all currently live in long distance relationships? Is the journey currently going inwards? And what comes after this general isolation phase?

We call on artists to send us an artwork that deals with these questions. All contributions will be presented on our online platform and made accessible to everyone. Artists participating in the SODA festival can benefit from a large existing network and publishing. We are aware that the movement of social distancing art is still in its infancy. At the same time we see your social distancing artworks as documentation, of the present „unimagined' time. Without a doubt, the website alongside its contributions will last for weeks, months and years and gain relevance as a historical statement. At a later date we would like to present the curated works in our gallery - Arrival Room in Saarbrücken/Germany. A separate real live exhibition will be organized under the name of Social Distancing Art - Festival.
