About Chemical (Re)Actions: On Environmental Struggles in Chicago

The Goethe-Institut Chicago presents a new project that enables artistic exchanges responding to critical sites of environmental and social conflict in Chicago. This platform transforms the toxic and educational tours given by local organizations into virtual content as a way to generate engagement with larger questions regarding pollution, industry, the environment, segregation and social equity.

Project concept and coordination by Joshi Radin and Alberto Ortega Trejo.
