What does the ongoing climate crisis and destruction of the environment mean for our way of life and our self-image as human beings, for our approach to planetary values and relationships? And how can the arts transform our knowledge systems and actions? The discourse program ›CCS IV: Earth‹ examines these questions with artists, theorists and activists. The topics they’ll be addressing include the role of aesthetics in the modern separation of nature and culture, resource extraction in the Ruhr, the Global South, and the deep sea, feminist practices of care in contemporary performance, and indigenous cosmologies.
With Nabil Ahmed, Denise Ferreira da Silva (within the framework of Burning Futures: On Ecologies of Existence / HAU Hebbel am Ufer #14), Catalina Insignares, Daniel Kötter, Bojana Kunst, Carolina Mendonça, Melanie Sehgal, Margarita Tsomou.
