Keywords: climate change, nature, environment, ecosystem, eco-scepticism, eco-anxiety, eco-denial
Through the exploration of nature and environment, power and society, speculative fiction and eco-criticism, we will dress the limits and possibilities of how art is able to respond and to challenge the anthropocentric conundrum. We examine our personal and professional engagements with nature, rethink and redefine the concept of human, non-human, animal, and vegetal. During this class, we place equal weight on critical theory and artistic creation, develop ideas and fluency. We will observe our relationship with nature, our engagement with ecology, our psychosocial impacts of climate change (eg. scepticisme, denial, critical rejection, anxiety, indifference, panic...).
during the classes, activities will involve
- Thematic experience
final public showing
- Participants have the possibility to organize public presentations (performances, public space intervention...), showings (pop-up exhibitions, screenings, discussions, talks...), participative group experiences (ceremonies, rituals, promenades, celebrations...) and many other public forms to share their works, test their ideas, present their process.
- Public presentation of the "UTOPIA/DYSTOPIA" immersive dance performance, signed by the company Gray Box, choreographed by Anna Ádám.
