The theme of Drawing of the Year 2019 is Post Human Metamorphosis. The drawing must address this theme. However, the theme can be interpreted freely and the competition welcomes experiments. The theme is not limited to a certain scale or place.

Post Human Metamorphosis

This year’s bold theme is Post Human Metamorphosis – local or global change?

Artificial intelligence, surveillance, migration, climate change and the increasingly unequal distribution of the world’s resources are known causes of the challenges our world is facing: We are more connected but also more fragmented and divided than before.

The idea of the human is under pressure from many sides. Robots, cyborgs and artistic intelligence are not only taking over the tasks we do, but also provide new perspectives on how the digital and the general technological development influence practically speaking all spheres of our lives. While technology becomes a part of us, nature shows us that the projects of modernism have consequences. Progress is rolled back by the powers of nature. And climate change is altering the basic conditions of life, forcing us to look at people from a new angle. For what does it mean to be human when Man is no longer at the centre of things, but is placed on an equal footing with nature and technology? How can we create architecture in the age of The Fourth Industrial Revolution, Globalisation 4.0? And how can architects act in post-human society?

This year’s theme calls for courageous and visionary drawings that illustrate architecture of the cities of the future, their homes, commercial areas, public spaces and landscapes, and provide proposals (metamorphoses) for solving the challenges the world is facing: Should changes be made locally or globally? Should the world be saved through small changes, or are larger global interventions necessary?

One participant may submit ONE drawing. Please note that you cannot submit both a drawing as an individual and as part of a group. Only accept digital submissions. The drawing itself can be hand-drawn sketches but must be digitally processed; 3D modelled drawings processed and developed in digital graphic programs; 100% digitally created or a mix of the analog and digital media. You are allowed to use and sample different kinds of drawings, photos etc. in an original way and work them into your drawing. However, it is your responsibility to follow international copyright laws. Your drawing must not have been published before and your drawing must be original. The aim is to explore the digital drawing as a media for creative and artistic development. Size of drawing: 88 x 88 cm. File format: PDF. Recommended resolution: 300 ppi. Max file size: 100 MB.
