Climate Change to go

Open call
Exhibition 15.5. – 19.6.2020

Sprit to go, (C) T.A. Climate Change to go

Sprit to go, (C) T.A.

In the meantime we have successfully put the last exhibition online because of Corona: “Home: Think global, act local“. Since the development is still open, we might show “Climate change to go” also online.

Tues. and Fri. 17 to 20 o’clock with program

Many people do not feel affected by climate change. They continue to live the way they do.  Even those who have recognised the problem often find it difficult to make sustainable consumption decisions in hectic everyday life or based on social expectations.

The demand for decadent luxury strengthens an immense emission of climate-damaging greenhouse gases, said economist Nico Paech of the University of Siegen. “These are cruises, these are SUVs, these are air travel, digital electronics and the demand for even more living space.” This is pure comfort that cannot be justified as satisfying essential basic needs. (SPON 1.12.2019)

The government is afraid of being voted out of office for major measures. Some people think you can do things on the side with technology. Scientists and committed people warn and demand political and personal changes. The outstanding changes are huge. Society needs transformation.

What are the comfort driven decisions, what are their consequences, what are the reasons for our actions, and how can we as individuals and as a community strike a new path?

imperative of flexibility. Tandem cases. Yoana Tuzharova. 2020 Home: Think globally, act locally

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?
