Climate change is urgent and important, but also, for many, boring, difficult and confusing. What kinds of stories, artworks and other interventions are being created in response to ‘the greatest challenge facing humanity’ — a challenge that is also apparently forgettable?
‘Culture and Climate Change’ presents an exhibition of work from three research projects: Stories of Change(creative responses to the challenge of decarbonizing energy systems), Earth in Vision(looking at 60 years of broadcasting about global environmental issues) and Provisional Cities(exploring the relationship between environmental crisis and urbanism). The exhibition also marks the launch of the books that came out of these projects. These are: Energetic (Shed, 2018) from Stories of Change, three e-books from Earth in Vision, and Provisional Cities: Cautionary Tales for the Anthropocene (Routledge, 2018).
An associated seminar will be held at the same location on Thursday 28th June 2018: http://www.open.ac.uk/researchcentres/osrc/events/culture-and-climate-change-seminar
The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded Stories of Change and Earth in Vision. The British Academy funded Provisional Cities.
