On Friday 13 September we invite you to an evening about new stories, maps and sensory experiences that capture the ongoing ecological crisis through other perspectives. How can we relate to the reality of climate change in other ways – visual and embodied – so that we can relate to its complexity, origin and impact? What role can sensory art, design, mapping and performative actions play in addressing this question?
This evening is the closing event of the first Cartographies of the Vanishing Now Lab (COTVN), in which more than 20 artistic and scientific makers and thinkers have collaborated on research, documentation and experiments for new artworks and/or performances. On the last evening of the lab, we welcome the audience to see the results and talk to the participants, mentors and guest speakers.
To get the evening off to a good start, there will be talks by designer/researcher Xandra van der Eijk (introduction to COTVN), graphic designer and researcher Irene Stracuzzi and others. This is followed by the Open Lab Session, in which visitors can learn about the lab process and outcomes.
