sola_s + CUIDADOS proposes the right to live alone in the city, championing and promoting the visibility and construction of networks of care that sustain the daily lives of people who live alone. Living alone cannot continue to be stigmatised, a situation ignored by policies-makers and made difficult by economic and traditional forces, but rather a possibility to dignified and contemporary way of life.
We believe that the creation of stories through visual art allows us to rethink contemporary living and empower solidary lifestyles through an optimistic, liberated and transfeminist lens, beyond imaginaries that construct an outdated present. We launch this open call in order to promote the production of diverse images, whether fictional, documentary, digrammatic, technical, artisanal, or hybrid images but always with the same protagonist: people who live alone.
The selected images will be printed, framed, and put on exhibition during the event. They will also be shared through various digital channels.
