Under the header of “we create”, we will approach Climate Change through an Arts and Visuals perspective in our class on 22nd of April. You all know the heartbreaking pictures of malnourished ice bears floating on ice sheets through the ocean. You also know the exponential curves of emissions, of species gone extinct in the last decades etc.

In this week’s class, we want to focus on several things. First, we want to raise the question whether and in which forms art helps us to tackle Climate Change: What role does art play, what potentials lie in it for communicating and depicting the Climate Crisis? We will also shed light on the question of how Climate Change is commonly visualized and imagined through visuals. Beyond, we will look at the potentials and merits of visual storytelling in the face of nature conservation and climate action.

Session 1 (16.45-18.15):
  • Lecture 1: Katharina Gsöllpointner (University of Applied Arts Vienna): The Climate, the Digital, the Artist, and their Work
  • Lecture 2: Dorothea Born (University of Vienna): Images and Imaginations of Climate Change

Session 2 (18.30-20.00):
  • Lecture 1: Heidi Dumreicher (oikodrom): tba
  • Lecture 2 (pre-recorded for wachting it @home): Christine Sonvilla and Marc Graf (Sonvilla-Graf OG, wildlife photographers): Visual Storytelling in conservation
