Theme: Civilization

“Civilization is a product of the cerebral cortex” – Carl Sagan

For this new theme we want to explore the lived-in world – people, cultures, societies. What makes us what we are today? It’s an invitation to show us the insights of this world from your own perspective!

From individuals to nations; city living and urban sprawl to rural life; the elites and the downcasts; domestication and our escapes from it; social trends, anthropology, technological advancements and our interactions with the natural world… Show us civilization!

This month’s judge is Emma Lewis

Emma Lewis is Assistant Curator, International Art at Tate Modern, where she curates exhibitions and researches photography acquisitions for the international collection.

Recent projects include the major monographic exhibition Wolfgang Tillmans: 2017 and catalogue essay for Shape of Light: 100 Years of Photography and Abstract Art.
