The winners of the #ensemble-2 art competition will exhibit their climate pictures from the creative areas of painting, graphics and photography in Berlin. They are gripping images that have captured individual everyday life and the big picture on the African continent in very specific works of art. The artistic view of climate change allows individualization, closeness and empathy.
Climate change - views and insights from Africa
The exhibition is shown on the outside fence of the Heilandskirche on Turmstrasse, right next to the Kleiner Tiergarten. The artworks are printed on banners. The QR code can be used to access the topic further on the Internet.
The exhibition is supplemented by an accompanying program that takes a look at specific facets and problems of the topic "Climate Justice / Africa / Decolonization".
Discourse evenings with expert discussions and audience talks, introduced by a short film or a short presentation, take place on the following questions:
Decolonization and Postcolonial Berlin
Rethink the economy? Economy for the common good for and with Africa
climate change | Climate justice in & for the African continent
HERE you will find the complete accompanying program.
Living in the Anthropocene – What do people in the Global North know about the effects of the global climate catastrophe in sub-Saharan Africa? What do you want to know? What insight do impersonal reports and abstract statistics on climate change offer? What really matters? What is the narrative of the place, the group, the individual? Are humans "nature" and if so, what happens to them?
The representation of reality in individual artistic and aesthetic expression takes up these questions: What could show something like this better than a work of art?
