2:30 pm - The Race for Technological Innovation
In English and streamed
In a time when everything is accelerating, artists take the time to take a critical look at the race for technological innovation. They dissect the tenets of its discourse and experiment with its tools. Together with researchers and scientists, they question the idea of technology being the only solution to climate change, alerting us to the lack of democratic control over geo-engineering projects, and developing projects involving alternate views of technology - open source, technical diversion, social hacking, etc.
With Renewable Futures: Rasa Smite and Raitis, artists and co-founders of RIXC (LVA), Cédric Carles and the Laboratoire Paléo-énergétique (FR) and Yacine Ait Kaci, artist (FR), Kevin Anderson, Deputy Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research (UK), Alice Bowes, Climate Scholar (UK). Moderated by Andrew Simms, writer and co-founder of the New Weather Institute (UK).
