Notes on Empathy

From March to June 2021, Empathy was unfolded through a programme of residencies, research projects, exhibitions, performances, and artist talks. In addition, three reading groups on- and offline and also a film screening took place at SEA Foundation in Tilburg. This publication Notes on Empathy is a selection of notes from SEA Foundation’s long term research programme on art and sustainability. The curation of archiving of the artistic endeavours by artists, writers, scholars and the SEA Foundation team follows the format of a notebook. fold #01 on Empathy, is the first of twelve folds that has been completed and documented in a scrapbook type publication.
