Moderation of The World and Us. Photography and Climate Change

Symposium Internationale Photoszene Köln

Bayenstraße 28, 50678 Köln

Can photographic images make causes, consequences and solutions of the global climate crisis visible? While artists and exhibitions deal with climate change and sound the alarm in view of the impending climate catastrophe, the question of the environmental friendliness or sustainability of the art business arises: Can institutions create ecological awareness at the content level while acting in a climate-friendly way within the common practice of exhibition making? In "The World and Us: Photography and Climate Change" artists and curators discuss the challenges of the climate crisis and their relationship to art from both institutional and artistic perspectives.
