Future Focus: Fragile Worlds is a two-part event taking place as part of Ars Electronica 2020 In Kepler’s Gardens, joining a community of organisations from North to South and forming a UK Garden, the Garden of Earthly Delights (after the homonymous Hieronymous Bosch painting).
Fragile Worlds is presented under our ongoing programme Future Focus, a platform for critical conversations, talks, debates, and cross-sector exchange, responding to and reflecting on the current and ongoing crises.
This session builds on a series of provocations and discussion following from the Art Hack Practice series, exploring artistic practices and the role of art at a time of crisis, shifting spaces of production, care and labour in a precarious world.
