We face one of the biggest catastrophes in our planet's history. Climate change and environmental destruction are causing mass extinction. The threat to life includes the human species. If we go extinct, we are likely to leave an Earth that is uninhabitable to most lifeforms.
What is the point of art in the face of death? Can art affect political change?
Join artists Michael Pinsky, Leni Dothan and writer and Extinction Rebellion activist Sara Hudston for a lively and incisive discussion. Both artists have made work in response to the ever-increasing threat of pollution, this event includes a tour of ‘Pollution Pods’ by Michael Pinsky and a screening of a film about Leni Dothan’s b-side commission ‘The Portland Stone Rehabilitation Centre’.
This event is co-presented by Cape Farewell and b-side.
