+Art is a group of normal citizens, who founded the
+Art e.V. society located in Berlin Germany, as a non-profit association, to promote our international artist call for: The Banality of Evil in our Daily Lives.
The Artist Call is live on the website: https://www.boeart.org/ since October 2019 and is available for anyone to look at and for artists to participate in.
The aim of the project is to give new attention to the theme inspired by philosopher Hannah Arendt.
Doing nothing and watching also encourages evil. We see this not only in political currents and tendencies, but also in daily life in the areas of consumption or alone in the perceived powerlessness to do something against the life-threatening plastic waste.
The project aims to bring awareness to the thoughtlessness that has unwittingly crept into our daily lives. A unique opportunity is presented to artists the world over to submit works exploring the boundaries between good and evil, right and wrong. It is our wish to initiate a new social discourse and to be able to contribute to a better world through self-reflection and attention. Art is a strong medium to illustrate the Banality of Evil in our Daily Lives. Art can make clear, can move and can change.

The Banality of Evil in Our Daily Lives art competition is an open call forartists to communicate what they see as the banality of evil in our daily lives.
It poses a challenge to communicate that which has never been communicated before and create a platform for groundbreaking ideas to be brought into our collectivity.
The project has a strong emphasis on public engagement. As a crowd driven project, the public will be invited to moderate the selection of the first 40 art works by liking and sharing the messages presented on the BOE in Our Daily Lives social media platforms.
Artists whose work has been selected to be part of the competition, will receive a "Thank You Certificate" for participation in the artist call.
