imperative of flexibility. Tandem cases. Yoana Tuzharova. 2020

This old saying combines global responsibility with local action. In the place where we are at home, we are strong. The Earth is a complex organism in which cause and effect are not always spatially close to one another. Through our decisions, we as consumers can have a direct influence on the actions of polluters.

There are increasing local reasons for acting today: The daughter no longer wants to eat meat for climate protection reasons. Friends talk about flight shame and plastic shame. There is no snow at the usual holiday location for a skiing holiday. The bark beetle has attacked the local forest. The water level in German regions is falling. The summer heat is unbearable. The farmers have crop failures due to drought.

Example: Globally, old-growth forests are being destroyed in other places on the planet. That’s why I protest locally in my neighborhood if a forest or park is being destroyed; I try to save paper and don’t buy any items made from tropical wood. Refraining from eating meat also helps, as cattle are often raised on the cleared land or soy beans are grown there for animal feed.

Example: Increasing carbon dioxide emissions are heating up the Earth’s climate, which is a global problem. As an individual in Germany, I cannot influence politics in China or India to keep coal-fired power plants from being built or prevent people there from driving cars. But as a local decision, I myself can use a bike instead of a car, and I can influence the politics of my country and my local community.
How do artists express the saying “homeland: think globally, act locally” in their works?
