Appel d’air

By Thierry Boutonnier

Appel d’air is a participatory and environmental work by the artist Thierry Boutonnier. It will accompany the construction of the Grand Paris Express until 2030. Local inhabitants take part in this artistic and civic project. Indeed, they adopt 68 trees that will grow in an urban nursery, under the watchful eye of a nomadic nurseryman.

and then the doors opened again…

David Weber-Krebs | Collection Europe

The project brings together 75 visions by artists, scholars, curators and spectators, created in response to a question sent to them by David Weber-Krebs in the middle of the first wave of Covid-19 in Europe: What will happen on your first theatre visit after the lockdown? While being confined at home, David found himself thinking about the day when theatres would open their doors again. It somehow seemed impossible to picture this moment.

Conference – Energy Nightmares: from Chernobyl to a Climate Emergency

Michael Marder

Will we change human behaviour if we transform our idea of “energy”? 2021 marks the 35th anniversary of the nuclear disaster of Chernobyl, which took place on 26 April 1986. Considering the event from a philosophical perspective, we will look at the profound connection between different ways of obtaining energy. The catastrophe of our century not only lies in other nuclear disasters, but also in our continued adherence to a destructive structure for the production of energy, which is threatening to bring an end to various forms of life on the planet.

Conference – Cinema and Ecological Reason

Teresa Castro

Faced with the ever more real prospect of an uninhabitable planet, it is urgent to imagine a closer, more inclusive and more generous relationship with nature and the non-human aspects of life. Inspired by a series of eco-feminist proposals, the historian Teresa Castro suggests that images and the cinema can help us to expand the limits of our attention, thus laying the foundations for an ecological reason.
