PLAY TALK THINK EXPLORE DISCUSS CONTEMPLATE ACT!
TAKE PART AND BE INSPIRED!
ACT TWO was the the second edition of the Science, Sustainability and Art Series in autumn 2015: a combination of lectures, workshops and art installations which bring sustainability scientists, practitioners and artists to the Herderbau building to explore how art can be used as a tool for sustainability.
The aim of the series was to uncover aspects of sustainability, such as sensory and emotional experiences, which are strengths of aesthetic enquiry but often neglected by traditional research frameworks. Inspired by the upcoming COP21 negotiations, the focus of this autumn edition was Climate Change -and we don’t just want to talk about it, we want to act it out!
From a live role-play on climate conflicts to using theatre as a research tool; from using science to create a photo-exhibition, to collectively creating a giant word-sculpture out of our thoughts on climate change, Freiburg citizens were invited to come along to the Herderbau to discuss, feel and experience first-hand the innovative ways in which art can be used to make research truly transformative.
