  • “At a time of violent racialization in our societies and profound ecological crisis, organized governmental abuse of natural resources and common goods is reinforced, but so are civil and citizen initiatives and resistances.

    At a time when increasingly “breathing clean air is political, drinking pure water is political” (Black Quantum Futurism collective), we observe critical artistic positions and voices that engage in real life situations, activist research and fieldwork across Global North and Global South.

    This programme of videos and short films brings together internationally acclaimed artists from various backgrounds whose work is inspired and informed by gendered ecologies, intersections between racial and ecological issues, pollution, toxicity and environmental racism.

    The films present narrations on past, present and future catastrophes through approaches and knowledge that come from indigenous cosmologies across the planet, Afrofuturism and Arab futurism, ecofeminist engagement and social justice struggles.
