Amanita Bunker

Amanita Bunker

// At this year’s edition, the Amanita Bunker exhibition returns to the streets of this small village yet in the form of art bombing. Authors are invited to create artwork regarding the requested theme and join the yearly Mushroom Festival.

// We truly don’t know if mushrooms are looking for a hideout, inside the local’s mailboxes, from all the hungry stomachs at this festival. Maybe they are running away from the constant fires that overwhelm our Portuguese forests and their natural habitat. Or perhaps they are just growing so much that they spread all the way from the forest till the habitant’s mailboxes and the village streets.

// This being said… artists are invited to join in by sending artwork to the curators or by sending it directly to the village addresses.

All the artwork sent to the curators will end up being spread around the streets and all the work sent directly to the habitants will create a vaster bombing and mushroom invasion.

If sending directly to the habitants, do go on Google Street View and grab address from the city center of “Alcaide Fundão Portugal”. Do also send a scan of that same artwork to the provided email address so that we can archive it online and print a few more to spread on the streets.

// We do ask you to add somewhere on the artwork the hashtag #AMANITABUNKER and the website so that the receiver may go online and learn about this project.
