CLIMATE CARE

Reimagining Shared Planetary Futures

Fri, 28.05.2021–Sun, 03.10.2021

MAK – Museum of Applied Arts

As the MAK’s main contribution to the Vienna Biennale for Change 2021, the exhibition recognizes and examines CLIMATE CARE as a key concept and vision for a world that humans share in a just and sustainable way with other species and future generations. It demonstrates through a wide range of art, design, and architecture projects how artists and creative minds can play a central role in shaping an ecologically and socially sustainable Climate Modernity. The exhibition takes visitors on a voyage of discovery through an inspiring panorama of ideas, processes, and narratives on key areas of life and activity, to include nourishment and nurture, living, motion, production, cooperation, and the mobilization of active hope.
