EcoFutures festival is a platform for discussion and experimentation around urgent environmental and ecological issues such as climate change, extinction, pollution, health and sustainability through an intersectional, feminist and queer lens.

About

At the speed of techno-global-capitalism we continue producing, consuming and living without accounting for the earth’s ability to replenish itself at the impossible pace that we demand. It is as if we want to stare at the sun and, at the same time, expect that we will not lose our sight. The artists in this international group exhibition critically approach this impossibility by producing lived and speculative alternatives to the ongoing ecological and environmental destruction. Their visions draw from indigenous knowledges, eco-sustainable modes of living, non-exploitative human/non-human relations, queer bio-hacking, gendered approaches to climate change, nature-based spirituality and ecosexuality.
