Diesel Wall 2008

DIESEL WALL, a competition dedicated to young artists and designers, to offer them the opportunity to showcase their works on an extraordinary scale: monumental, freestanding vertical walls in the centres of world’s most important cities.

In 2008, this art project will delve into new territories: Manchester (UK), Barcelona (Spain), New York (USA), Zurich (Switzerland) all are now hosting new Diesel Walls, continuing the tradition started in 2004.

From March 3rd until May 12th 2008 anyone from any country in the world can apply online www.dieselwall.com and submit his/her designs for the chance to feature in this new edition of the project and conquer a Wall! The artists will have total freedom in sending concepts: art is above all a means of unconstrained self-expression.

From mid-April to June 2008 local juries will get together in order to select the Diesel Wall winners for each city and the winner will be announced June 10th, 2008. The jury members for this year will include among others Bigas Luna, Peter Saville, Terry Jones, and Wilbert Das, Diesel’s Creative Director, joining each judging panel in all four different countries. From May to July 2008, depending on each city’s Diesel Wall timeline, winners will be announced both through the website and local events to then proceed with the setting-up of the winning installations on each Wall.
