Small Scale

A resource-intensive and destructive economic model based on short-term profits is opposed by sustainable action based on needs and regeneration. What does the concept of sustainability mean for artistic work in the current situation, where the landscape of places and structures, communities and niches, alliances and public spheres in which artistic work has taken place up to now is being seized and fundamentally transformed by the pandemic? What relevance can sustainable artistic practice develop beyond these structures, as a medium of recognition, exploration and change?
The three lectures on sustainable action present positions of artists who work with temporary, minimal or immaterial interventions and strategies to feed sustainable action into social processes. Sabine Zahn's choreographic work investigates the interaction of body and city. In her research practice, urban environment is produced through movement and perception, and is created in interaction with embodied everyday knowledge. The architect Benjamin Foerster-Baldenius is part of the collective raumlabor, which designs its temporary buildings not as objects but as social constructions. Architecture here is an experimental setting for a participatory building practice in urban space that is based on the moment. Ella Ziegler is a visual artist and works on the borderline of immateriality, with minimal gestures and interventions in the everyday world, with atmospheric shifts that open up new spaces of possibility.
