Our Environment, Our Common Concern / Joint intersectoral discussion. We are witnessing several concurrent crises, and the global and local socio-political situation is changing dramatically. We haven’t had time to recover from the pandemic and we’re already witnessing a drastic, senseless and unjust war. Addressing the climate crisis has been shunted to the side. We will (probably) face its destructive consequences later. We are looking (with great difficulty) for brighter days in the future; temporality rising above the horizon brings along many challenges with the necessity to change the way we think and work. It will require active co-participation in public matters.

Is it possible to find a solution in the mutual sharing of our abilities and skills in an open intersectoral space? Will we succeed by initiating further cooperation with organizations and experts and providing our knowledge? Deliberations on post-artistic practice in which we might help with our work to achieve a real solution of established issues have surfaced. All of us, together.

The discussion is organized within the exhibition Ján Skaličan: Eyewitness.
