Climate change in the contemporary exhibition practice

Climate change transforms our surroundings causing, in the same time, shifts in our perception of the environment. Having in mind the growing influence that phenomena called “climate change” have on a wider social sphere, rethinking its consequences is therefore necessary. Whether it is referred as “a new spectre haunting the globe” (Szerszynski and Urry) or one of the „four horseman of the Apocalypse” (Slavoj Žižek), climate change has great impact on creation of new discursive fields both in theory and practice of various disciplines.

ECOLOGY, FILM AND FESTIVALS

WHAT SHOULD BE DONE IN ORDER TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS ”FOR REAL”?

There is no need to use extra words when we want to explain the importance of ecology. It is an absurd, actually – even though media and the society address the issues about pollution and ecological disasters, it might seem that nothing has been really done in order to solve those problems. In the contemporary world, media is an absolute ruler. Present society brought fast urban life and tight business schedules, but it seems that people still find time for festivals, especially film festivals. Every year we have more festivals that are dedicated to the films about ecology. But still, every day our planet becomes less pleasant place for living. What actually should be done? Read More →

Rural between local & global

Architectural public opinion was primarily concerned with ideas of sustainable development as an activity focused on a long-term planning that aimed to enable the same living conditions for the future generations. In the long-term planning of the future, the past was somehow forgotten – the principles that the architects used in the past in order to bring the architecture closer to the nature were put aside. It might seem like today we’ve just formed new names such as sustainable development, eco-villages, sustainable architecture, ecological architecture, passive solar house, bioclimatic design etc. and that we’re discussing the terms that once were common practice without contemporary semantics, scientific discourses and debates. But our generation has even bigger obligation – not to merely discuss those terms, but to see them in the present context of urban growth and globalisation. Can defining the todays meaning of local and rural help us in that process? F. L. Wright believed that the core of every serious architectural design research lies in those modest homes that are the same to the architecture as the folklore is to the literature. In other words – in the rural. The strongest connection with the past and tradition can be felt in the rural areas.  Read More →
