ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS

— Ecological thinking through video art production

Tuesday 20 November 2018, 12 pm

This year LOOP takes part of the debates on the anthroposcenes —a new ethics and understanding of human beings and the human condition— through its annual prize LOOP Discover. Under the title “Towards a more sustainable future” LOOP Discover poses questions to the participating artists such as “How can we make the Earth a habitable place?” or “How can we direct ourselves towards a sustainable future?” This talk aims to broaden and deepen into the discourse initiated by the prize to promote new imaginaries and narratives that address the environmental crisis of the planet. Does art contribute to create environmental awareness? May it go further and transform our reality by an accompanying action through its production? What is the role and weight of video art production in this context?
