Q&A

16.30 End of the Event

Timothy Morton: „One can’t “make” ecological art, in the sense of doing something radically different from what is happening now, for the precise and ironic reason that everything one does is already an expression of one’s symbiotic coexistence with a host of lifeforms in a biosphere. Thinking ecological art requires that we change what we mean when we say “make.” This talk is about that.“
