A Letter to the Future: Toward Radical and Creative Ecologies


About the conference

Emerging from the EKO 8 concept, the conference addresses environmental and climate urgencies as well as the potential of art to critically and creatively address and engage with them at the local and global level. In our search for radical and creative ecologies, we focus on contemporary artistic and curatorial strategies, looking at recent examples, and exploring the intersection of art, political ecology, environmental advocacy and activism, social and environmental justice, politics and theory of care, de-growth, and postcolonial globalization.

The conference will take place on 22 May 2021 in Maribor and online.

Speakers among others include: T. J. Demos, Maja and Reuben Fowkes, Elke Krasny, Andri Snær Magnason, Luka Omladič, Lucia Pietroiusti, Marjetica Potrč
