Many people do not feel affected by climate change. They continue to live the way they have been living. Even those who recognize the problem often find it difficult to make sustainable consumption choices in their hectic daily lives or because of societal expectations.

The demand for decadent luxury reinforces immense emissions of climate-damaging greenhouse gases, said economist Nico Paech of the University of Siegen. “It’s cruises, it’s SUVs, it’s air travel, it’s digital electronics, and it’s the demand for even more housing.” This, he said, is pure convenience that cannot be justified as satisfying essential basic needs.(SPON DEC. 1, 2019)

The government fears being voted out of office if it takes major measures. The lobby is putting on the brakes. Some people think you can solve everything with technology on the side. Scientists and committed people warn and demand political and personal changes. The outstanding changes are big. Society needs transformation.

What are the choices driven by comfort, what are their consequences, what are the reasons for our actions, and how can we forge new paths as individuals and as a community?

12.6., Online video lecture

Christian Löwe, Federal Environment Agency: “Environmental crisis, digitality and art”.

(19:21 min.)

Born in 1965, holds a degree in forestry from the University of Bremen, and has been a research associate at the Federal Environment Agency since 1993, currently working in the area of “Digitization and Environmental Protection, E-Government”.
Central: Work and research focus:

  • Socio-ecological transformations of everyday life and society (Applied Social/Cultural Environmental Studies).
  • Social innovations, green economy, (digital) culture of sustainability
  • Environmental policy and environmental communication for sustainable consumption patterns and lifestyles
  • Participation in the working group “Art and Environment” of the Federal Environment Agency.
Lecture short text

The permanent overstepping of planetary boundaries not only overtaxes the climate and the environment, but also leads economically, socially and culturally into a dead end. More and more people are becoming aware that the prevailing forms of economic activity, consumption patterns and lifestyles in modern societies are already causing the economic and social costs of environmental degradation to rise immeasurably, and will thus severely restrict the scope for a good, successful life for present and, above all, future generations. Germany must set out on the path to a sustainable society. Environmental policy is thus increasingly becoming an extended social and cultural policy. But what does Germany need to achieve a culture for sustainability? And what new impulses can arise from an increased interplay between digitality and art for a cultural dynamization of the socio-ecological transformation? Does this result in starting points for a cultural (political) economic stimulus program that can lead to new forms of aestheticizing innovation as well as social experiments for a digital culture of sustainability?

6/19, 7 pm Finissage

imperative of flexibility. Tandem case. Yoana Tuzharova. 2020

The old slogan of the alternative movement combines global responsibility with local action. In the homeland where we are at home, we are strong. The earth is a complex organism in which cause and effect are not always spatially close. Through our decision, we as purchasers can directly influence the actions of the polluters. But politicians must also take action.

Today, there are more and more local reasons to act: The daughter doesn’t want to eat meat anymore for climate protection reasons. Friends talk about flight shame and plastic shame. For the ski vacation lacks snow at the usual resort. The bark beetle has attacked the local forest. The water level in German regions is falling. The summer heat is unbearable. Farmers have crop losses due to drought.

Example: virgin forests are being destroyed on Earth, so globally, which is what I want to fight. That’s why I protest locally, i.e. on the spot in my neighborhood, when a forest or park is destroyed here, try to save paper myself and don’t buy any items made from tropical wood. Abstaining from meat also helps, as the cleared land is often used to raise cattle or grow soy for livestock feed.

Example: Increasing emissions of carbon dioxide 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 so that fewer coal-fired power plants are built there or people do not drive cars. But I myself can, for example, as a local decision, use a bicycle instead of a car and influence the policy.

  • Corona Performance / Viral Horizons from Tom Albert and Rosa Schmidt

    The idea for this performance arose spontaneously under the first impression of the threat of the corona virus and the subsequent shutdown of the economy, travel and physical encounters. “The virus is the most radical decelerator of our time”. (

    Hartmut Rosa


    Climate change and the Corona pandemic are linked. Being globally everywhere and using global resources is part of the reason for the pandemic. More and more people are claiming more and more wildlife habitats, land use has been greatly changed by humans, wildlife, livestock and animal products are transported around the globe, and global travel increased greatly.



    The planet a sphere, yielding to gravity a breathing, an admission to rotation in the colored twilight, to perishability, to becoming and passing, an exercise of trust in the carrying capacity of the earth’s crust, an overcoming of the civilization’s flight acceleration frenzy, a momentary collapse of total networking, a vanity withdrawal attempt, a suspension, a farewell, a flapping of wings, a prayer close to the earth, an erection of the spine against the gesture of domination, a shift of perspective in several sequences, a transformation of techno-totalitarian arrogance compulsions.
