Open Call to Artists
Climate change demands responsive transformations of the social realm, as well as a deep sensorial engagement with the world. We ask: what kinds of public institutions can we imagine in order to effectively engage novel technologies as the need for global decarbonization progresses, to protect and restore our resources in common, to match the realities of an imminent future? Can social organization function as a technology or mechanism that prevents reinscribing past social problems within and onto future solutions?
