Projects about climate colonialism, climate breakdown and climate activism from the Arte Útil archive

22 April 2020

We asked curators and educators Gemma Medina and Alessandra Saviotti to select some projects that deal with climate colonialism, climate breakdown and climate activism from the Arte Útil archive. This online, growing database is free and features case studies which use art as a way to change how we act in society.

The Arte Útil archive has been built up since 2013 and it was presented as part of ‘The Museum of Arte Útil,’ an exhibition and research project initiated by Tania Bruguera in collaboration with curators and researchers at Queens Museum (NY), Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven) and Grizedale Art (Lake District, UK). It has been activated through various seminars, workshops and exhibitions throughout the world.

Medina and Saviotti, who are long-term members of the Asociación de Arte Útil, are regular guests at the international Master Artist Educator (ArtEZ Arnhem) and the Master Arts Education (ArtEZ Zwolle) since 2018.
