Open call for artworks and research projects:


Deadline: 5:00pm Monday 17th June 2019

This is an open call to Aalto Community: artists, students and researchers to submit proposals for inclusion in an exhibition at Aalto University in autumn 2019.

We are curious about how food might help us to understand the impacts of climate change. We are interested in art and science research projects which consider how what we eat has a hold on the PlAnET, and influences EArTh systems and climATE change.

Human activity is rapidly transforming the Earth's natural systems, destroying healthy ecosystems and diminishing biodiversity. Food systems are inseparable from the impacts on the climate change. Climate change will almost certainly change the quality and availability of food supplies but the very methods of planetary food production, logistics and waste disposal must also be modified to prevent further destructive environmental impact.

How can this understanding help us participate in constructing our food futures?

How can these food futures operate in the discourse of climate change?

We welcome art works and research proposals which focus on these core questions, and which reference systems of food production, circulation and disposal.

ClimATE seeks projects which offer different ways of thinking about what we (will) EAT.
