[ESCAPE]
ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGES ECOLOGICAL EMERGENCY

The "Escape" on environmental changes ecological emergency programme is a co-production between the Triennial of Photography Hamburg and the Ci.CLO Platform of Photography. The project will take place in Hamburg, Amsterdam and Porto.

According to the United Nations, human beings are facing the huge task of adding over 2 billion people to the urban population until 2050. Global warming and population growth have put our cities under heavy demands. Cities already consume 80% of global raw materials and energy supplies, and produce 75% of greenhouse gas emissions, which have a huge impact on climate change. The crises we are experiencing should encourage the efforts of politicians and communities to start making our cities better places to live in, both for us and the planet.

The [ESCAPE] exhibition and educational project aims to call attention to the need for urgent political, economic and social transformation regarding urban sustainability. Protecting the environment and changing cultural behaviours requires creativity, hope and many positive minded people. We believe that cities and citizens can help to provide the solutions to the challenges we are facing, by changing laws, values and beliefs that have environmental and social implications, in order to create a more sustainable future.

The objective of this program is to encourage the development of experimental and holistic projects by connecting the artistic with the politics of art, belief with activism, heart with mind, along with a creative and multi-disciplinary team comprising photography and other artistic, social and environmental studies.

Workshop Amsterdam and Porto

Workshop coordinated by Virgílio Ferreira, Krzysztof Candrowicz and Christian Barbe, was a space for reflection and experimentation where the participants did two intensive four-day meetings. The first meeting took place in Amsterdam at 2 Boats, a floating education platform, during the Unseen Photo Fair in September 2017. The second meeting took place six months later in Porto, March 2018. The intention of these workshops was to promote the discussion on environmental, cultural and social transformations through the artistic practice of photography, image-based media and texts.

Exhibition

Jayne Dyer, "A Perfect day" in collaboration with Rachel Korman, 2018

Air pollution, water scarcity, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, climate change: these human-caused environmental problems are all of our concern. But what role can artists play in the face of the pressing problems of our time? The [ESCAPE] exhibition has taken up this question and based on two workshops, coordinated by Virgílio Ferreira, Krzysztof Candrowicz and Christian Barbe, brought together a group of artists to exchange experiences and contents. The aim was to question the artistic practice and promote the discussion on sustainable cultures and environmental issues. [ESCAPE] is the beginning of an open-ended project which should not only be interpreted as critical evidence but also as an invitation for action.
Part of the project: Cláudio Reis, Constanze Flamme, das Künstlerkollektiv DUAE (Luna Coppola und Silvia Campidelli), Jayne Dyer, Lisa Hoffmann, Marco Caterini und Pawel Kowalski.

This is the beginning of an open-ended project which should not only be interpreted as critical evidence but also, hopefully, as an invitation for action.
