The Awesomest Foundation: revealing of the "winning proposal"

Our stance is not so much "what is to be done?" but "something is already being done." And we not so much want to show it (off) but to actually come to value it better, to become more confident collectively. We believe that the fundamental predicament of our times is fear. It makes us defensive, it insidiously brings about isolation. In 1969, it was right after the initiation of the first Black Panther's Free Breakfast for School Children Program that J. Edgar Hoover (FBI director) stated that the Panthers posed "the greatest threat to the internal security of the country." This exemplifies the power of alternative infrastructures and brings us back to today's (global) criminalisation of dissent. As we know, valuing is not an individual act, it is a collective one. We see this project as a kind of "work interruption": to interrupt the current flow of things, of business-as-usual (not for an anonymous "system" but for ourselves, as artists, activists, academics); to perhaps go back to some of our footnotes (left behind because we were too busy going forward); to take the time to think and to nourish each other, to be present, in order to live differently. By making stuff together, we can get to know each other better, to value our ideas better, to build affinity.
