Our awareness of human actions in scale and perspectives
The work we are presenting has a solid relation to climate change and human actions. Now that we think we are hopefully escaping the Corona episode and trying to make up for the damage driven by economic motives, there is little enthusiasm or room for reflection. If we zoom out, we can see the bigger picture (if we want to). During das Neue Bauhaus webinar in July this year, a student panel member put it this way: Who is we? An excellent complex question in three words: WHO IS WE? We see this question as a question of positioning and the question of direction. responsibility. It is also a call for taking responsibility and a radical change in our educational system. We have to change or another 4-year cycle will pass in which the major issues have not been addressed. The intervention of roughly the last 400 years, agriculture's industrialization, and the production of goods speak volumes. How we deal with our environments in, oppression, exploitation, racism, war go hand in hand with industrialization. Climate is, therefore not only, rising temperatures, CO2 emissions, but also our climate of interpersonal relationships.
