Individuals are starting to build insect hotels, housing bees in the city, doing urban gardening. Citizens are measuring their ecological footprint. Renewable energies and organic farming are increasing. Climate protection agreements are being made worldwide.
But the reversal is happening too slowly. Today, islands are sinking, climate refugees are coming to the borders, extreme weather is on the rise, species are dying. Scientists are warning us. The young generation is demonstrating for real climate protection. But the politics are not changing. The German government wants to keep coal power plants running longer than planned. Citizens are driving SUVs, eating meat every day, flying short distances, and even denying climate change.
We as artists worry about what our future will look like. We support the protests for more climate and environmental protection. As artists, we contribute to the world of the future. What do these contributions look like?
Over 100 artists applied, of which we selected strong, exciting works.
