Co-Workers : Beyond Disaster

Past: October 8, 2015 → January 30, 2016

Flows of information, words, data, immaterial transactions, rain, tidal waves. Anxious observation of a deregulated forecast. Is it capital or the weather that determines the course of things today? Illegibility, contradictory predictions, broken logics.

Co-Workers: Beyond Disaster puts forth the speculative powers of story-telling and science-fiction to re-think the ways we inhabit our environment. As a counterpoint to the 21st United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Paris next Fall, the project addresses from a transversal perspective the relationship we build with the world surrounding us, in order to explore possible transformations and collective forms of action.

Initiated by Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Co-Workers unfolds over two different chapters: The Network as Artist at MAMVP and Beyond Disaster at Bétonsalon — Centre for Art and Research, where a program of events and encounters will punctuate the exhibition.

Co-Workers : Beyond Disaster is supported by the Région Île-de-France, Arcadi Île-de-France in the frame of Némo, Biennale internationale des arts numériques — Paris / Île-de-France, as well as by Fondation Imago Mundi (Cracow) within the programme Place Called Space (project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Małopolska Regional Operational Programme for 2007-2013).
