Robert Klanten interviewed by PAGE.
Hermann Josef Hack
The travelling exhibition Examples to Follow! Expeditions in Aesthetics and Sustainability is setting foot next in Brazil and opening on February 21st.The Memorial da América Latina in Sao Paulo is hosting the group show, which also features the ongoing project “World Climate Refugee Camp” by the German artist Hermann Josef Hack.
Hack’s climate refugee camps, consisting of over a thousand miniature tents, make the needs of those who have already lost their homes through climate change visible in the very places where the causes for human-influenced global warming lie, in the markets and pedestrian zones of the consumer metropolises. More of his work is published in Art & Agenda, Cause and Effect and Urban Interventions.
Sustainability requires a cooperative expansion of perception. Hence, the boundaries between artistic and technical creativity, between feasibility and idea are deliberately suspended. Sensuality is the connecting element in the creations and presentations of visual artists, inventors and scientists as well as in exemplary works from the fields of design and architecture, but also in instances of sustainable economic activities, each of which in their own way challenge the individual dimension of action.
