TENTAKEL, (C) Jochen Schnepf Corona and Climate Crisis

TENTAKEL, (C) Jochen Schnepf

The Corona pandemic demands our attention. But the other existential issue, climate change, is still important. Our main question is, “What do we learn from the current Corona affliction to avoid the climate crisis?” We use the term crisis instead of change, because change sounds too soft and manageable.

Both crises have in common, as one cause, strong global mobility. Another is our lifestyle and our plundering of resources. The threat is different. With Corona it is acute. The state is reacting strongly, following the advice of science. Epidemiologist (german): At Corona we have seen what it looks like when a crisis is taken seriously. In contrast, the climate crisis poses a particular threat to future generations. This threat will soon no longer be kept in check by acute measures. The state is reacting insufficiently and not following the science.

What do we learn from this, what do we change? With Corona, the home office functions as a substitute for travel, and closed shops limit our consumption. This has advantages for coping with the climate crisis as these measures also reduce CO2 emissions.

We do not know what good habits will remain post-Corona to counter the climate crisis. The new bike paths on the streets of Berlin are here to stay. That is not enough though, society must not leave it at that. Scientists are proposing an intergenerational “climate-corona treaty (german)” that is based on reason and the principle of social justice.

We see Corona as a global pandemic which, like the climate crisis, is forcing us to far-reaching changes in behaviour. We no longer want to submit to our fate, we want to shape it!

Performance: Clarissa Falco “SIX FEET, Welcome in 2020” Tue. Oct. 20., 7 pm

The live performance is cancelled due to corona-related travel restrictions. We show the video of the performance here online.

SIX FEET welcome in 2020

Video 6:04min. Six feet, or 1.82 meters, is the safety measure in these coronavirus times. Mark Fisher writes in Capitalist Realism: “The pandemic of mental anguish that plagues our time cannot be adequately understood, or cured, when viewed as a private problem suffered by damaged individuals.” Can dealing with a situation of this kind by stemming sociality offer us a moment of reflection on it? To date we are divided and ruled by decrees that speak of distances and demands, designed to regulate our daily life in order to allow us a timely escape from this crisis.
