Ying-Ting Shen: Resilient construction in a changing climate

First video essay Future Justice: an inquiry into the way things are/were/should be

17 March 2021

Future Justice is a programme that invites young artists, researchers and educators to help unpack the idea of a future that is based on justice. Out of deep concern for the world, which is marked by a climate crisis as well as a social and political crisis, ArtEZ studium generale commissioned the publication series Future Justice. The first publication is about resilient construction in a changing climate. We see and hear Ying-Ting Shen who followed a Master Interior Architecture in Zwolle.

We are bearing witness to the simultaneous unfolding of a climate crisis, a social crisis and a political crisis. All of these crises are in the now, are rooted in our past and signal specific futures.Future Justice is a series of publications in which students and alumni of ArtEZ present their visions of the future. Future Justice aims at unfolding alternative ideas of justice, which are informed by ideas of collectivity, care, restoration, non-violence and compassion. In doing so, the series takes a kaleidoscopic, hopeful and meaningful look at the future.

Every month a new issue will be published. Each contribution offers a glimpse into a possible future and every contributor does so from their own perspective and artistic practice.

Future Justice is a programme commissioned by ArtEZ studium generale it is carried out by the Professorship Aesthetics & Cultures of Technology in cooperation with the Honours Programme.
