EcoArtLab joins the Symposium at the Master of Fine Arts Luzern
HOME: AT THE NEXUS OF ECOLOGICAL GRIEF, ARTISTIC RESEARCH, AND ENVIRONMENTAL
We are delighted to participate in the symposium FINDING HOME: AT THE NEXUS OF ECOLOGICAL GRIEF, ARTISTIC RESEARCH, AND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE hosted by the Master of Fine Arts Luzern. The Project members Johanna Paschen and Riikka Tauriainen will introduce our research project ‘EcoArtLab. Relational encounters between the Arts and Climate Research’. The following filmscreening of the video work ‘Ecotone Encounters’ by Riikka Tauriainen is about the relationship between humans and the environment. The artistic research presented in the film deals with the issue of care and represents a place (a home) for different ecosystems.
The program takes place on the 13th of April 11am - 6 pm on site and via Zoom and is open to participate. More Infos on the Website master-kunst-luzern.ch.
SNSF-research project: ‘EcoArtLAb. Relational encounters between the arts and climate research’
We are glad to announce that the SNSF-research project has been approved. This practice-based research project at the Institute for Practices and Theories of the Arts at the Bern University of the Arts (BFH) in cooperation with the mLAB at the Institute of Geography at the University of Bern investigates how the interplay of expertise from artistic research, geography and critical sustainability research and climatology can be made fruitful for the climate debate. It connects current discourses of Artistic Research, Ecological Arts and critical sustainability research in Geography, which have so far only been considered in isolation.
