When Knowledge is not enough
Making sense of our climate futures with artists
Location: Black Room

A seminar programme with lectures, panel discussions and screenings. 

When: Thursday, 29 September 2022, 14.00-17.00

Where: Black Room, Inter Arts Center

Opened to a limited number of guests. The detailed programme and the registration form will be published soon.

The aim of the seminar  is to show how artistic research and artists today are looking for new ways to engage with and make sense of our climate futures.

We all know what is at stake and still surprisingly little is being done to challenge our clear but nonetheless dark scenarios. So how do artists produce new knowledge or new sense of what we already know? Do we need to smell or listen deeper into climate changes in order to understand it anew or do we need to unlearn the way we structure and legislate our societies of both human and nonhuman beings?

Through guest lectures and screenings, the seminar offers an introduction to some of the most interesting and engaged artists within this field. The seminar explicitly invites relevant researchers from a wide range of disciplines from Narrating Climate Futures network and beyond to jointly explore the collaborative and transformative potentials of art and climate. And in the end, an attempt is made to come closer to an answer of what it is that artists (and we all) do when knowledge is not enough.

The seminar is organised by Inter Arts Center and is part of the collaboration initiative Narrating Climate Futures at Lund University.
