Ten artists represent the saying “Homeland: Think globally, act locally” in their works:
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”. (
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.
