Presentation Annual Program 2023

© Andrea Lehsiak


Let’s stop kidding ourselves: Melting glaciers, collapsing ecosystems, migration driven by drought and floods – the times when “climate change” was a distant and abstract threat are over. It’s getting hotter, tangibly hotter. The parameters of our ecological – and political – agency have shifted. The question by which we will negotiate our future coexistence is no longer: “How do we want to live?” but: “How can we survive?”

Sensing the Heat is the theme of the Kunstraum’s 2023 annual program. Departing from decolonial and intersectional perspectives on the climate and environmental crisis, we go in search of phenomena that point beyond the catastrophic ecological status quo. Where can we already spot the seeds of new terrestrial modes of coexistence – not against but together with the planet? And what role can art play in these investigative trajectories?

Sensing the Heat is the first annual program under the curatorial aegis of the new artistic director of Kunstraum Niederoesterreich Frederike Sperling.

On Fri, 27/01/2023 at 10:00 am the press conference for the presentation of the annual programme 2023 will take place at Kunstraum Niederoesterreich. The new exhibition projects and the accompanying education programme will be presented.
