The 30th International Biennial Exhibition of Humour in Art, Tolentino 2019-2020, Italy

30th Biennale Internazionale dell'Umorismo nell'Arte
Tolentino November 23, 2019 - January 26, 2020
REGULATIONS
ART. 1 - SCOPE
The Municipality of Tolentino convenes and organises the 30th Biennale Internazionale dell'Umorismo nell'Arte (30th Festival of Humour in Art) – a prize contest focused on humour in art.
The contest is divided into two sections:
“Premio Internazionale Città di Tolentino” (“City of Tolentino International Award”) - for humorous art on the subject of “Hatred"
Hatred is a deep-rooted feeling.
Hatred expresses passionate repulsion.
Hatred yearns to destroy the most despised thing.
Hatred makes you feel a decent human being whilst destroying the thing you loathe.
Hatred can be directed at a nation, an ideology, a faith, a race, a policy, an individual.
Hatred allows for finding the bond that strengthens social cohesion in a common enemy.
Hatred is fiercely spread through social media.
Hate speech thrives on social media and via the internet a large part of society is infiltrated by contempt and resentment.
The theme of the 30th Biennial forces us to take a critical look at the culture of vileness in contemporary society through the lens of humour which, albeit futile and purposeless, can play with the most disturbing stereotypes in modern times.
“Premio Luigi Mari” (“Luigi Mari Award ”) for caricatures of illustrious figures.
The contest comprises:
a selection of the competing entries by a qualified jury. The artworks so singled out will be exhibited at the venue of the 30th Biennale Internazionale dell'Umorismo nell'Arte , from November 23, 2019 throughout January 26, 2020.
publication of a complimentary catalogue that will be presented to the authors of the selected works;
a prize awarding event;
Against the backdrop of the festival is a commendation for Humour on the internet awarded for products at the cutting edge of communications technology that shatter the stereotypical patterns typical of traditional comedy.
