Performance: Gaël Rakotondrabe ‚Sonate du désastre climatique‘, 6:30 pm

In FACING GAÏA, which follows the UNIVERSITY OF DISASTER exhibition at the Bosnian Pavilion of the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017 as a sort of case study, Radenko Milak and Roman Uranjek are presenting new works. The title of the exhibition was borrowed from the recent book ‚Facing Gaia. Eight Lectures on the New Climatic Regime‘ (2017) by philosopher and science sociologist Bruno Latour:
"He who looks at the Earth as a Globe always sees himself as a God. If the Sphere is what one wishes to contemplate passively when one is tired of history, how can one manage to trace the connections of the Earth without depicting a sphere?" (quot. Christopher Yggdre, Paris 2018)
The exhibition FACING GAÏA is accompanied by a supporting program from the series CONVERSATIONS:
Saturday, April 28, 2018, 1 pm
Em.O.Univ.Prof. Dr.phil. Helga Kromp-Kolb in conversation with Radenko Milak, Roman Uranjek and Christopher Yggdre
Further CONVERSATIONS will take place on May 5, May 26, June 9, June 16 - stay tuned for details!
