Care for the living world!

Caring for the environment is not only a central leitmotif in our exhibition Ecologies and Politics of the Living and interactive media sculpture Collective Action Viewer at this year's Vienna Biennale PLANET LOVE - Climate Care in the Digital Age, but the protection of nature has been on our minds for a long time and has been anchored in the programme of our last years. Our next exhibition in November 2021 is dedicated to the weather influenced by our environmental factors.

See below for contributions on climate care from different and interdisciplinary perspectives!

Change Is Our Only Chance – Diskussionsrunde

Talk in German from September 2019

Change Is Our Only Chance - Roundtable Discussion

A utopian future requires a critical present in which the urgency of ecological, economic and political-social change is taken seriously. The program aims to stimulate reflection on possible alternatives and strategies.

Simon Pories for Fridays for Future
Laura Grossmann for System Change not Climate Change
Katharina Rogenhofer for Klimavolksbegehren
Friedrich Hinterberger for Scientists for Future

The individual initiatives introduce themselves and we discuss the scope for action together. What role can we play with regard to social problems and in which areas of life can we become active ourselves?

EAT politics ART

oder: fressen moral kunst

Do you eat sustainably? Do you eat up well? Do you eat politically? A collective dinner around food and sustainability.

Do you eat sustainably? Do you eat up well? Do you eat politically?

EAT politics ART is an interdisciplinary effort. We bring food and sustainability to the same table for two evenings. At AIL, theses from art and science are brought together, debates are provoked with the help of Eat Art actions. The goal is the public generation of hitherto unconsidered insights. Honey & bunny create two provocative EAT ART MEALS, whose setting, ritual and dishes correspond to the themes "VALUE - food" and "sustainable table manners". For each meal, three experts are invited, whose work focuses are related to the themes of the evenings. They will be questioned, squeezed, criticized. Taboos are forbidden.
