New IETM Perspectives: Art for the Good of the Planet

New IETM Perspectives: Art for the Good of the Planet

This 4th edition of IETM’s New Perspectives was produced in collaboration with COAL.

Climate change is overwhelming us. Scientists are warning that our civilization is on the verge of collapse unless we make a radical shift to a low-carbon, resource-efficient economy.

Art, calling on other instincts and logics than those of political rhetoric, economic bullshit and scientific data, prepares us for this change – not by cold calculations, but humanly.
