For Sustainability Advocates Exhibitions

  • Broken Spectre

    Broken Spectre

    Richard Mosse (IE)

    Broken Spectre is a disquieting portrait of willful environmental catastrophe along the Trans-Amazonian Highway told through a kaleidoscope of scientific, cultural, historic, socio-political, activist, and anthropological filters.

  • Shadows from the Walls of Death

    Shadows from the Walls of Death

    Adam Brown (US)

    Shadows from the Walls of Death is a long-term artwork that investigates the historical, chemical, and material agency of Paris Green, one of the most toxic pigments ever produced.

  • Wild Machines

    Wild Machines

    Jonathan Torres Rodríguez (CR)

    This project makes use of the power that speculative thought provides to imagine a present world that revalues to matter, a place of technologies whose preprogrammed expiration is in relation to the needs of the environments and not those of the economic system. Technologies that use energetic and material resources with balance.




    Enter the extraterrestrial mini-planet of FORMATA, where alien blobs actively move and pulsate with energy. This multisensory art installation invites visitors to redefine our place in an active cosmos through a bodily encounter that challenges the prevailing narratives that shape our engagement with matter.

  • ZOE


    Noor Stenfert Kroese (NL), Amir Bastan (IR)

    Without claiming that we know what nature wants or needs. ZOE creates a possibility of unknowns coming together. Scientists do not know what this communication within the mycelium entails. It is the curiosity of what will happen when we do not know the outcome which in turn enables us to experience the process.

  • StellaVerde


    Gregor Krpič (SI), Simon Gmajner (SI), Dr. Jan Babič (SI), Dr. Marko Jamšek (SI), Gal Sajko (Jožef Stefan Institute) (SI)

    StellaVerde is a vertical garden arrangement, in which a functional connection between animals, plants and robots allows plants and animals (in this case fish) to use robots according to their needs. The robot, in this case a five-legged spiderbot, interprets the data and translates it into a watering rout(in)e for the spiderbot.

  • Cartographies of the Unseen

    Cartographies of the Unseen

    Felipe Castelblanco (CO), Lydia Zimmermann (CH)

    Through participatory filmmaking, this project creates an inter-epistemic dialogue with Indigenous territorial logics from the South of Colombia to explore the forest as a system of volumes that extends across a vertical axis of occupation and resistance, above and below ground.

  • Biosymbiotic Exoskeleton

    Biosymbiotic Exoskeleton

    Dorotea Dolinšek (SI)

    In this project, Dolinšek draws attention to our microbiome as an organ of great importance for our survival, not only in an ontological sense but also in a very personal, intimate way. Here, being alive in radical conditions as outer space is challenging life; being alive means being in symbiosis with non-human living systems.

  • Sistema Cinco: Non-Human Determinations

    Sistema Cinco: Non-Human Determinations

    Cristo Riffo (CL)

    Sistema Cinco explores microorganism interdependencies, contrasting natural and human-made molecular technologies. It comprises a robotic microscope that explores microbial samples and AI for cybernetic management with algorithmic governance. Drawing inspiration from The Viable System—a non-hierarchical structure mirroring biological organisms’ nervous systems, used in the project Cybersyn (1971).

  • Massive Binaries

    Massive Binaries

    Andy Gracie (GB/ES)

    Massive Binaries takes AI mediation of gravitational wave observations of neutron star mergers and polarized ideological viewpoints as the seeds of an evolving narrative about the fragility of progress, the struggle for consensus and the inevitability of collisions and fusions.
