Climate crisis

Wanneer taal poëzie wordt, komen we dichter bij de werkelijkheid in gesprek met Jasper Griepink
De temperatuur op de Noordpool was nog nooit zo hoog als afgelopen zomer. Ieder jaar worden de bosbranden groter, het orkaanseizoen heftiger en de weilanden in Oost-Nederland droger. Wetenschappers waarschuwen dat een ineenstorting van onze beschaving nabij is, maar in hoeverre kun je van een beschaving spreken als we niet…
Rood zijn Over de verbindingsdraad tussen natuur en kleur
In deze bijdrage licht Barbara Collé het visuele onderwerp kleur uit en verbeeldt daarmee de mogelijkheid van een andere relatie met onze omgeving. Het belicht traditionele kennis, de westerse scheiding tussen subject en object en de rol van ervaring in onze relatie met de natuur en de aarde.

Response-ability in Times of Precarity Surface Design as Embedded Critique
This paper considers a hybrid approach to making fashion by looking at the creation of Reu Jacket, ‘a zero-waste responsive garment’ that drew inspiration from lichen as a model for adaptive resilience. The approach to designing the garment established an experimental, practice-based space to explore the undecided and emergent. In prototyping this approach, the work speculated on the value of growth through reconfiguration.
Er woont iemand in het moeras
Lietje Bauwens schrijft in haar essay over het moeras. Het moeras wordt vaak geromantiseerd als uitgestorven natuurfenomeen. In het licht van historische droogleggingpraktijken in Amerika, plaatst Lietje Bauwens hier kritische vraagtekens bij. Ze grijpt daarentegen (de metafoor van) het moeras aan voor een kritische blik op onderdrukkingsmechanismen in steden als Brussel en Amsterdam, die tenslotte gebouwd zijn op moeras. Aan de hand van verschillende artistieke projecten over het moeras, analyseert Lietje hoe drassige bodemgronden nog altijd doorleven in onze sociale realiteit.
Onpeilbaar Over natuur, land en eigendom
Een essay van schrijver Fiep van Bodegom over het begrip eigenaarschap in relatie tot land.
Limits of the Self
‘Limits of the Self’ is a poetic exploration of our senses, written from the personal point-of-view of a scenographer. The text is part of Into Territories Unknown, a cahier exploring artistic research, written by Gaia’s Machine, a performance collective the author is part of. The cahier compiles their practices of interdependency and staging ecological spectatorship—a performative way of being-with the world, and a worldly way of being-with an artwork.
FLUID SYNTAXIS
How to make visible the imperceptible? In particular, how to make visible the imperceptible language of the non-human within different environments? ‘Fluid Syntaxis’ is an exploration of a language beyond words, following the interaction between thought, physical investigation, artistic intuition, and dynamic reflection. It is shaped not only in text but in print, paper studies, and film.
Tales from the Abyss
How do we make sense of climate breakdown? What are the effects of imagining and naming how we live amid the uncertainties, upheavals, and pain caused by climate breakdown? How is it defined, and by whom? This year ArtEZ studium generale published two literary explorations in response to the film…

Tigress Kali Score
Using oral storytelling and sound, a narrative sets the coordinates of a game-world, navigating the contradictions in the interrelations of ‘nature’ and ‘technology.’ It employs the ultrasonic spectrum used in wildlife telemetry as a mythopoeic time and space, wherein the human hearing range and a shapeshifting being are the centre of the work.
00:21:16:32
00:21:16:32 is a personal intervention on the means of deceit that employ the human to accept a self-manageable and accountable relationship with their privacy. Signing away our rights to our ‘self’ on a daily basis has become a small price to pay to exist in modern society.
Blood Processing
‘Blood Processing' focuses on the industrial slaughterhouse as a case study for the bigger phenomenon of anthropocentrism. Systems and constructions such as an extreme focus on hygiene regulations inside the slaughterhouse are used to keep the animal as Other as possible. To challenge this, ‘Blood Processing' reimagines the industrial slaughterhouse from the perspective of the blood present in this space. Through this blood, a new narrative is created that challenges binary thinking.
Co-Authoring the Future Participatory Performance and the Climate Crisis
Framed by the metaphor of a road trip, ‘Co-authoring the Future’ explores the use of participatory performance in building cultural discourse about decision-making during the climate crisis. An audio narration accompanies the written work, attempting to explore the theories discussed in the form of a correspondence between the author and her elusive self-awareness.
