Fee to Participate or Apply: EUR 175
Description Of Opportunity:
|Eco-performance art has emerged as a valuable tool for negotiating humankind’s relationship to nature as we experience the devastating effects of the climate crisis more intensely every day. Also, creating artworks connecting the body with natural elements is in inspiration for humanity to slow down, learn sustainability and creativity in the anthropocene period. This course offers to its participants both practical approaches and theoretical knowledge about the relationship between performance art and environmentalism. Participants will acquire an experience that focuses on the history and concerns of eco-performance art, the relationship between the body and nature, examples of eco-performance art, sustainable archival methods for performance art, and gather practical tools for creating performance art. Participants are encouraged to develop individual and group projects about climate issues in in-class exercises and assignments. Moreover, they will be guided to explore balancing exercises with the elements, whose methodology combines spiritual approaches from Eastern and Western ancient cultures.
