Institut Kunst: Summer School at Istituto Svizzero, Rome

1.7.2019 | Institut Kunst Gender Natur

The Question of Nature has been placed at the core of the Art Institute’s curricula in Basel for already more than three years. We became aware that the questions related to Nature and those on Gender contain interchangeable notions in many respects.

For this reason, we have been inviting special guests to our seminars such as scientists, philosophers and artists, who are capable of creating a context where nature issues as well as climate related topics can be addressed together with the rise of social movements. Historically social justice and natural justice were different categories. This has contributed to the general perception that we could prioritize one over the other. Yet, the way we advocate for awareness, change and the rights of Nature has been using far too much the form of a patriarchal order: "Save the Ocean!" This reveals a hierarchy over the elements as well as the acknowledgement that the Ocean cannot save itself from us. The goal of this summer school is to understand the research conducted in the deep sea and to respond to the questions by creating a situation where we can convey this through art.
The Summer School is lead by Filipa Ramos with guests Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Amy Franceschini.
