My main reason for postponing the end of the world is so that we’ve always got time for one more story. If we can make time for that, then we’ll be forever putting off the world’s demise.
“Ideas to postpone the end of the world” Ailton Krenak
This half an hour format is something between an encounter, a performance and a workshop. I invite you to enter the microclimate and spend half an hour in it with me. It looks like a house – warm and cozy. Plants inhabit it. There will be tea, a comfy chair and a story I would like to offer to you. We will talk about global changes from a local and personal perspective. We will listen to fern, we will look at the lost futures and we will breathe. We can also gossip if you like to.
Microclimate is part of a long-term artistic research project initiated in 2020 by Romuald Krężel as part of the “WimmelResearch-Fellowship” – a joint project between Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Robert Bosch Centre for Research and Advanced Engineering in Renningen and Wimmelforschung. The research has grown through artistic collaborations with René Alejandro Huari Mateus and Carolina Mendonça.
