Participating artists of the exhibition are invited to make themselves vandals and create work based on their own interpretation of vandalism. It is interesting to review the extent of the meaning of this term. Every artist may sense vandalism – in his work, within the city, in his/her everyday life, his/her feelings and human interactions. Vandalism during the 21st century has developed, perhaps become more sophisticated, reaching out to values and social behaviors, ideas, symbols.
As Nietzsche says: “Art is the force that resists chaos, not to be carried away by this but to give form, meaning and direction, making life feasible despite the chaotic reality.”
