Double Decker – a project by Sandwich, Bucharest – is based on an Open Call for artists from Romania, China and Moldova, of any age or background, launched in July 2020. 26 proposals were selected. 
Artists were invited to send Instructions for artworks, that anyone could follow. Each set of instructions, with text, images, video, sketches, became a work in itself.

Through this open call, Sandwich was looking for artists that are at ease with opening up their creative process to others, that can visualize works way before they start to exist, and that are comfortable with letting go of their idea in the hands of a stranger. Double Decker questions the need for (over)production in art and provokes a transfer of ideas from author to producer. In this process, what happens to authorship and how much of the original concept is left intact afterwards? We hope that the complete collection of instructions will become a resource not just for artists, but for anyone that enjoys an insight into the creative process.
