DON’T/PANIC – How to react to climate change?

Gabi Ngcobo, Foto: Goethe-Institut Johannesburg/Sam WolsonAs part of the Goethe-Institut's cultural programmes for the COP17 Climate Change Conference in Durban 2011, South African curator Gabi Ngcobo created the exhibition DON'T/PANIC.

Part of her concept was an open forum, which would engage different audiences and – apart from the visual art in the gallery – focus on interventions in public space.

The exhibition runs until 16 February 2012, a catalogue is published by Jacana Media.
