Marie van Berchem
Can the global art system be ecological? How do we produce and communicate art in an environmentally friendly way, and is there a sustainable way of doing art business? The Löwenbräu is traditionally one of those places in Switzerland where art shows its most international side. Are the institutions here and the local art landscape prepared to subject the production, trade, and mediation of contemporary art to a transformation in favor of ecological sustainability? What “green” initiatives are there? What needs to change in the art business to seriously live ecological sustainability? How can environmental issues be transferred from the content of artistic and theoretical works into concrete formats?
From studio work to transportation to exhibition and storage, circulating artworks raise questions about material and energy consumption at each of their stations. The second round of talks asks about the relationship between the currently omnipresent preoccupation with environmental issues from an artistic or curatorial perspective and the mechanisms of production or presentation of the resulting projects.
