Gapsap: Global Appropriation of Public Spaces Arts Project is for “Found public artworks” for the redefinition and expansion of the value and opportunities within public spaces that we define as public art for all. This is a photographic documentation and art critical conceptual art project, where artists worldwide document found structures and write an short art critical conceptual value appraisal and submit both to Gapsap. Thus Gapsap extends Joseph Beuys' “democratization of art” where "every person is an artist",  Marcel DuChamp's ready made and Martin Creed's "everyday ordinary" objects as art series.Through the appropriation of public, man-made only, facades, artifices, and constructs which express cultural values, but by themselves do not readily have any, or do not aspire to public art status, they open up a world of visual investigation. Gapsap jokingly showcases all the gaps in public built spaces as new public artwork concepts and ideas by all. #GAPSAP

Gapsap's goals are to revolutionize the way we look at and define public art beyond all institutional status', and process today. Thus by expanding the way we can see public art and the critical art dialogue that can ensue from the "Found, ready made" and its intentions as an already existing object or structure within the global urban landscape of every place, town or city. We end up seeing an art that is everywhere. Gapsap now democratizes public art making and exhibition status for all artists worldwide, as an independently curated, re-conceptualization challenging formal critical art thinking.
