Environment: Perils, Promises and Perplexities
Italy
GREENWASHING presents the work of 24 international artists and artist-groups whose practice suggests that the literalism embedded in old-fashioned concepts such as 'environmentalism' and 'nature' are not equipped to comprehend the ecological territory of our time. Today we negotiate an evermore urgent and pervasive ecological (and thereby cultural, political, social and economic) arena that is darkly shadowed by potentially catastrophic ecosystemic collapse. In the face of a constant bombardment of eco-economic guilt, corporate agendas and political point-scoring, what might emerge is genuine perplexity and false promises, though still possibly capable of unleashing creative change.
