Freedom, gaining distance from everyday life, discovering new things, encountering foreign cultures, discovering secrets. We have the choice, are mobile all over the world, fly “short” and “far”, cross the seas, track down the last untouched corners of the earth and find dreamlike second homes in idyllic places. The price – we use up a lot of resources when we travel, generate CO2, waste, aircraft noise, transport our culture of waste and abundance to poor countries, fix it, exploit people and nature, degrade it with curious eco-tourism and with spirituality as a consumer product.
Are these alternatives, avoiding long-distance travel, traveling more sustainably, more gently, hiking, enjoying the summer in your own country, cycling, ecotourism? What do artists say about this?
