“Eco-visionaries”, Art, Architecture and New Media after the Anthropocene at the MAAT in Lisbon

From April 11 to 08 October 2018, the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) in Lisbon presents the exhibition “Eco-Visionaries: Art, Architecture and New Media after the Anthropocene” and explores the theme of climate change in its second international “manifesto-exhibition”.

In the museum’s first collaboration with several European museums, this multi-venue exhibition, curated by Pedro Gadanho and Mariana Pestana, invites artists and architects to reflect on the scenarios that await us in a moment of global transformation.

The “Eco-Visionaries” project is centred on current practices that propose critical and creative visions regarding to the environmental transformations that are affecting our planet. At a moment when climate change is more widely felt, this group show launches the debate on a vast array of questions associated to the Anthropocene – the recent designation for a geological period defined by the impact of human action.

With contributions from over thirty-five artists and architects, the show in Lisbon is the first and most wide-ranging of curatorial takes also appearing in three other venues: Bildmuseet (Sweden), HeK (Switzerland) and LABoral (Spain).

Participants in the MAAT’s collaborative project are Daniel Arsham, BIG, Ursula Bienmann and Paulo Tavares, Carolina Caycedo, Design Earth, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Dunne & Raby, John Gerrard, Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg, Tue Greenfort, HeHe, Andrés Jaque, Basim Magdy, Philippe Rahm, Superflex, Superuse, Territorial Agency, Ana Vaz & Tristan Bera, and many others.
