Seminar: Representing the Climate Crisis in European Art and Culture

Between January and March 2023, I had the pleasure of leading a seminar on the conflicts and possibilities related to the representation of the climate crisis in artistic and cultural manifestations in Europe.

In four different sessions, we discussed how we are living in a paradigm where the artificial divisions between nature and culture are being erased, what it means to live in the Anthropocene, the problems of thinking in different spatial and temporal scales, how all crises are intertwined – and how we cannot and should not think of the climate crisis as an isolated challenge – and how dystopias and utopias are two sides of the same coin when it comes to imagining (and not just representing) what we are living today.

It was an immense pleasure that I hope to repeat soon. My thanks to the organizers at the Centre Cultural La Nau, the University of Valencia, and all the wonderful participants!
