We thought to present a special request for images to encourage and inspire global solidarity and communities today in the time of COVID-19.
In these times it is our duty as creators and content editors to show our full potential and ensure security. We are in the midst of an ongoing global crisis and although there is an economic downfall and a disastrous loss of life, this crisis is revealing to us even more that our differences are only riches, but that we all share the same burdens.
We are all equal as human beings, we are all within this problem, what we need right now is to preserve the lives of those weaker than us and our tireless workers such as: doctors, nurses, cashiers and employees in open shops. We act as if we are infected by staying in our homes, reducing our interactions with other people.
Image creators around the world have the power and creativity to visualize this important message - with intelligence, humor and compassion. Present the images you are taking or processing directly from your home or quarantine location.
A selection of the submitted projects will be published on our instagram @kaktuszine account and part of this selection will be published in a Special Paper Magazine, which will be available for sale online.
A selection of Content Creators will be contacted for an interview which will then be published in our stories on instagram and part of this selection will be published in a Special Magazine.
-1 to 5 images per submission

Open Call for Artists: Power Play 2020 - World without Boundaries
Power Play is a biennial festival in Singapore that explores the manifold dimensions of the notion of power through the playful possibilities of contemporary art. The festival will feature a multitude of international and local works including performance art, video art and visual art, in an attempt to encourage intercultural discussions pertaining to the play of power.
Theme for 2020: World Without Boundaries
Geography and power are intertwined topics that play a significant role in shaping human societies, most notably in geographical subfields such as geopolitics and social geography. As globalisation encourages the mobility of people and flow of ideas, it has also led to the contesting of space and identities. On an international ground, nations may exert power over one another in strategies such as border control, military deterrence, economic diplomacy and colonisation. Domestically, leaders within individual societies may utilise their power to implement spatial policies in pursuance of nationalistic agenda at the expense of its people. Similarly, amongst people, social groups may oppress the minority in order to safeguard the authenticity of the social identity within their homeland. Such proceedings tend to cause an unsettling tension between various social entities, sparking rivalries between nations and division within societies, where socio-spatial boundaries are constructed by the dominant in a bid to establish control and achieve certain ideals. Consequently, marginalisation – a process of becoming peripheral may occur. Marginality can emanate from a variety of differences that segregate one’s own identity from the other, which may include race, ethnicity, nationality, citizenship and class. Such adversity has become prevalent in the contemporary world as exemplified by various aspects of social exclusion such as racism, discrimination, xenophobia, ethnocentrism, inequality and injustice. The inaugural edition of Power Play puts the limelight on these issues as artists are invited to present works that explore the phenomenon of power within various geographical contexts, thereby encouraging an intercultural discussion on the challenges and issues facing the interconnected topics of geopolitics, social geography and identity.
Venue: The Arts House, Singapore
Date: 16 - 18 October 2020
