At this 2019’s edition, the Amanita Bunker exhibition returns to the streets of this small village reinforcing the artistic bombings of the previous 2018’s edition. Authors are invited to create artwork regarding the requested theme and join the yearly Mushroom Festival.
Amanita Bunker, wears now robes of a fictional political party. The Amanites manifest themselves and demand distinction and promise improvements on the village. In the form of stickers, pins, posters, slogans, political propaganda and other equally ridiculous but serious paraphernalia … artists are invited to participate by sending works that will eventually be scattered through the streets in the form of propaganda.
“Fires continue to plague the country and our memory is short. When we take down forests or take other actions that can deplete fungal populations, this does not only affect fungi – it ultimately affects Homo sapiens as well. Fungi is an ignored realm, but this kingdom is more important than many of us imagine.” — Nicholas Money
