Call for a collaborative nature-human dialogue!
The consequences of climate change are already noticeable today. Including Moabiter Stadtgarten. Urban nature and human health in and around ZK/U Berlin are suffering from increasingly intense climate extremes. In the process of the current ZK/U transformation, the aim is to work together on a more climate-friendly future. The focus thereby lies on plants and the question of how humans and nature can take better care of each other. For this process, ZK/U is still looking for collaborators to find interactive solutions.
WHAT IS KLIMAKUNSTLABOR?
This summer, the Klimakunstlabor (Climate Art Lab) will be a field test in form of a series of discussions and experiments. Throughout the project, immediate effects of climate change on the ZK/U and the Moabiter Stadtgarten will be addressed and compared different perspectives. In a flexible team of neighbors, artists and scientists, various issues of urban climate change will be discussed. With a focus on real experiments, sustainable solutions will be elaborated, conceived. Finally, prototypes will be built and experimented with.
WHAT IS THE GOAL?
mobile shade vines - talkative trees -
sensor-based dialogues - communicative climate art
ZK/U Berlin calls for a dialogue between nature and humans on the search for creative as well as sustainable solutions to adapt to climate change. In the open-ended process of the field experiments, all team members are asked to offer their knowledge and skills while learning from everyone else. In the first phase of the process, initial objectives are formulated. Now, these need to be developed further and tested in the real experiments. Innovation through trial and error.
WHO WILL PARTICIPATE?
The climate art lab is aimed at all interested neighbors and users of the Stadtgarten, as well as all artists, climate activists and tinkerers who want to learn from each other, discuss, plan, build and experiment together. You don't have to be available on all dates - but it would be great if you could attend at least three or four of them.
WHEN AND WHERE DO THE WORKSHOPS TAKE PLACE?
The Klimakunstlabor will take place from mid-June to mid-October 2021. The workshops also contain interesting input from experts of the different fields. All participants will become part of the ZK/U development team, so the real lab will take place as a working meeting on top of the new BAUschilderung (Construction Explained). From there, we will work with a limited number of participants, maintaining sufficient social distance while staying outdoors.
Dates: June 11, June 25, July 30, August 27, September 24, October 15 (each Friday from 2 to 7 pm).
