CLIMATES. HABITATS. ENVIRONMENTS.
This research topic for 2017 to 2019 connects the Centre’s research & academic programmes, exhibitions, and residencies. Climate change has become an urgent issue around the globe in its impact on urban environments and other habitats.As weather patterns change causing droughts, large storms, and severe flooding, humans and animals are forced to migrate on a critical scale, requiring communication across disciplines and beyond national borders. Reflecting its geo-political, cultural, and ecological conditions and interrelations, the Centre intends to discuss these precarious realities through art and culture, in dialogue with other fields of knowledge. CLIMATES. HABITATS. ENVIRONMENTS. follows the overarching topic of PLACE. LABOUR. CAPITAL. (2015–17), continuing to address the complexities and the dynamics that entangle the local with the global and vice-versa.
