Harriet Bergman researches climate change and emotions at the University of Antwerp, and practices what she preaches as part of Fossil Free Culture NL. Her academic research at the department of Philosophy focuses on political emotions and their (de)mobilizing power for social movements. After the film screening she will connect her academic work with the artistic practices of Fossil Free Culture and share with us her ideas on the ways in which the arts can play a role in climate crisis communication. Fossil free culture is a collective of artists, activists and researchers working at the intersection of art and climate activism. With their disobedient art, they seek to bring an end to oil and gas sponsorship of public cultural institutions in the Netherlands.
Harriet Bergman will talk about climate change, doom-dude protagonists, and discomfort.
