What role can art play in envisioning a sustainable future for our planet?

Step Not Beyond


More than any other area of human activity, art envisions possible new earths. That is to say, sustainable and creative relations with our planet. For this imagination one has to cross considerable conceptual distances and travel across unpredictable territories. To this end, the Summer School on the Adriatic Island of Cres invites participants to a week-long immersion into the sea--a natural and thinking force--in order to engage its impact in art and politics. Through daily workshops, participants will produce a series of multiples as reactions to themes and experiences ofthe week, including: texts (for writers), sounds (for composers), images (for artists), dishes (for chefs), performances (for dancers), drawings and plans (for architects), or concepts (for philosophers). The classroom will be both inside and outside, taking place at the Stanzia Castellani, as 17th-century farmhouse surrounded by an organic farm, where theory and lived experience can come together in a palpable way.
