This is the second edition of sea_youhere and this programme is themed ‘art and sustainability’. With this theme, we provide a common ground for several individuals working in various media and disciplines while honouring their differences in culture, experience and perspective. By choosing a theme, we intend to generate ideas along with additional lines of inquiry and creative interdisciplinary problem solving that are manifest today.
We are currently facing a climate crisis, depletion of resources, extinction of species and social and political uncertainties. We invite artists, activists, designers, architects, and collectives to share their exemplary projects and discuss ideas on art and sustainability with a broader audience.
What does it mean to have a sustainable practice? What is the accountability towards ideas/objects we spread into the world? Sustainability can be viewed from different angles – ecological, social justice, non-violence, grassroots democracy, economic. Sustainable art may be understood as art that is produced with consideration for the wider impact and its reception in relationship to its environments social, economic, biophysical, historical and cultural.
