    PLASTIC Dialogues

    Wednesday, October 5

    United States: 11am PT, 1pm MT, 2pm CT, 3pm ET

    EUROPE: 21:00 GMT  Australia: 7am Thursday in Sydney

    This month we will hear from Ingeborg Reichle, editor of the recent book which examines the effects of microplastic particles on marine life titled Plastic Ocean: Art and Science Responses to Marine Pollution. Reichle participated in an international conference in September held by the Korea National Maritime Museum in the context of the 40th anniversary of the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea titled "Insight into the Ocean: Ocean Civilization & Oceancity." She has also been following the current inaugural Beijing Art and Technology Biennale (BATB) titled Synthetic Ecology. And, in November, Reichle will go to the Republic of Cyprus in the Mediterranean to participate in an exhibition and panel discussion on "Money, Ruins, and the Sea."



    Ingeborg Reichle, PhD, is a contemporary art historian and cultural theorist and currently a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam, Germany, writing about art, science, and sustainability. In 2021 she edited an anthology on Plastic Ocean: Art and Science Responses to Marine Pollution, De Gruyter, Berlin, Boston 2021 to bring numerous international art and science projects together, which are related to environmental crisis and draw attention to the irreversible destruction of our marine ecosystems due to plastic pollution. In recent years she served as Professor in the Department of Media Theory at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and as founding chair of the Department of Cross-disciplinary Strategies (CDS), designing an integrated BA study programme on applied studies in art, science, philosophy, and global challenges. Her current area of research and teaching is the encounter of the arts with cutting-edge technologies such as biotechnology and synthetic biology, taking also into account artistic responses to systemic risks and global challenges such as climate change and ecological collapse in order to develop a critical understanding of the role of twenty-first century arts. Before joining the faculty of the Department of Media Theory as full professor in 2016, she was FONTE professor at Humboldt University Berlin. In 2004 she gained her Ph.D. from the Humboldt University Berlin with the dissertation Kunst aus dem Labor, published in 2005 with Springer publishers, at Humboldt University Berlin where she also gained her habilitation in 2013. She is the author of a number of books including Art in the Age of Technoscience: Genetic Engineering, Robotics, and Artificial Life in Contemporary Art, Springer, Vienna 2009. In addition to her research and teaching she is advising a number of institutions like the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia (NanoARTS) and the sci-art programme NaturArchy at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra, Italy (the European Commission’s science and knowledge service). She joined the Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe ZKM’s Board of Trustees in March 2022.

    Tree Talk: Artists Speak For Trees

    Thursday, October 20

    United States: 10:00am PDT, 11:00am MDT, 12:00pm CDT, 1:00pm EDT

    Europe: 19:00 CEST Australia: 3:00am AEST, Friday, May 27


    Rina C. Faletti, Ph.D., Fire Transforms

    After the better part of a year as a wildfire evacuee from her mountain home, Rina C. Faletti, founded Art Responds, an ongoing project of art exhibitions, public programs, and publications that engage communities in meaningful conversation about the roles art plays in community recovery from environmental crisis. She recently curated and opened the exhibition Fire Transforms, at the Palo Alto Art Center in Northern California, which includes works by four ecoartspace artists: Kim Abeles, Linda Gass, Erika Osborne, and Beth Ames Swartz. The exhibition includes a total of 17 established environmental artists who have produced a significant body of work responding to wildfire.

    Falletti will take us on an online tour of the exhibition while exploring three themes: “Living with Fire,” in which artists explore how fire transforms lives and landscapes; “Learning with Fire,” focusing on how artists’ responses to science and social issues can transform our understandings of fire; and “Creating with Fire,” showcasing how artists use fire as a medium to transform artmaking. Member artists included will be present to respond to prompts by Faletti.

    Tree Talk is moderated by Sant Khalsa, ecofeminist artist and activist, whose work has focused on critical environmental and societal issues including forests and watersheds for four decades.
     
    Co-sponsored by Joshua Tree Center for Photographic Arts

    Members and one guest are free. General Public can attend for $10. Capacity is 100 participants. All participants MUST REGISTER.
