Teresa Borasino: The way we understand the crisis

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

video Teresa Borasino – 29 November 2021
Teresa Borasino is a visual artist and activist, whose practice centers on the struggle for climate justice. In her video essay for the Future Justice series she departs from the premise that ‘the way we understand the crisis is part of the crisis’. She presents a beautiful meditation in which she unwraps a mini story about the Quechua cosmologies.

Teresa Borasino (born in Lima; lives and works in Amsterdam) is a visual artist and activist. Since 2014, her practice centers on the struggle for climate justice. Together with other activists and artists, she develops new tools and forms of creative intervention to confront the system that causes the climate crisis and creates experiences that allow the audience to imagine alternative ways of being in this world. In 2016, she co-founded Fossil Free Culture NL, a collective of artists and activists working to eradicate artwashing: the association of fossil fuel corporations with cultural institutions to clean their image and maintain their social license to operate.
About Future Justice
'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'.

It 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.

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