iMal is happy to invite you for Post Growth, an exhibition by DISNOVATION.ORG with Baruch Gottlieb, Clémence Seurat, Julien Maudet & Pauline Briand.
What ideological, social and biophysical factors have precipitated the current environmental crises? What leverage is available for transformative practices and imaginaries to overcome the continuous growth of our energy consumption?
This exhibition consists of six artworks that encourage us to challenge our dominant narratives about growth and progress, and explore the radical implications of a speculative economic model based on energy emitted by the Sun.
The exhibition looks at perspectives for a shift away from the overexploitation of fossil fuels, ancient sunlight, the force on which the reproduction of our societies depends today.
The series of artworks presented re-envision social metabolism through an understanding of the energy it requires, reconnecting human survival with the living, material qualities of the biosphere, drawing on ecofeminism, indigenous knowledge, environmental accounting and historical materialism.
In complement to the main exhibition, a series of workshops, discussions and filmed interviews will further explore the forms that a post-fossil society could take and the challenges we need to confront to get there.
Post Growth is an invitation to a collective and practical examination of the future of life on the planet, the notion of growth in all its facets and implications, the limits of technology, of politics and of our imaginations.
