KLIMA MAGAZINE (FR/CH)
Residency period: April-June 2019
We took the opportunity of this two-month long residency to produce the second issue of our periodical. Lying at the crossroads of art and reflection, political philosophy, gender studies and academic knowledge, Klima focuses on the global ecological crisis, the impact of human activity on the environment and the interdependence between entities that make up our planet.
We made the most of the idyllic setting at La Becque to write, translate, refine our table of contents and compose articles and interviews. Addressing the environment is a vast endeavour that enables many approaches, be it pragmatic, poetic, speculative or decolonial. To meet this great diversity of analyses, we sought to express the viewpoints of people from various backgrounds, whose practice continuously focuses on issues of common concern.
In the face of extinction, how might we trigger a collaborative survival process? How can we look at the world beyond our Western point of view and beyond our essentially human outlook?
These questions are the starting point for our second issue produced during our residency at La Becque.
Klima is a bilingual (French/English) biannual printed magazine aiming to bring together the worlds of research and artistic creation. Born from a will to generate a collective dynamic by inviting authors from various horizons around a common subject, the project wants to mix different disciplines: from criticism to contemporary art, political philosophy or gender studies, by focusing on their transversal aspects without denying their own specificities.
