Voices in the Anthropocene
We are living in an era where human interference on the planet has left deep and permanent traces – the Anthropocene. What, if anything, can art contribute to this reality? What role does aesthetics have in the public debate on large societal problems such as climate change?
In order to reflect upon the changing nature of our planet, as well as the relationship of our species to itself and its surroundings, the Independent AIR would like to invite you to think about the Anthropocene as a pulsating and kaleidoscopic construct- one deeply immersed in history, politics and geography.
Through a series of events in Aarhus in August 2017- an ambitious programme including an exhibition, a book launch, artist talks as well as poetry readings, music and lectures- this topic will be brought alive and reflected upon in different ways.
