Teaser text

Venue: HFBK Hamburg, Aula

6:00 pm: Presentation and discussion with Daphne Dragona (Curator & Writer, Berlin)

"Can the arts degrow? Changing the pace in the midst of the climate crisis." Can artistic and curatorial practices help us adopt a more sustainable way of living? Is slowing down at all possible? Numerous artworks and cultural projects nowadays question the imaginary of progress and highlight the need to resist ongoing forms of exploitation. The talk will discuss the challenges and promises of degrowth, and present paradigms that point towards a different path of action.

7:00 pm: Webinar by Steffi Bednarek (Climate psychologist, UK)
No advance registration necessary

The acknowledgement of the reality of the climate and ecological crisis and its impact on us and our families and loved ones is both necessary and painful. A certain amount of climate distress is an aspect of living at this consequential moment in the history of humanity. In this webinar, the Climate Psychologist Steffi Bednarek will offer insights into the psychological aspects and impacts of climate change and suggest working practices that support and normalise climate-related emotions at work and in our private lives.

Both events will be held in English.
