As fascist systems gain international traction, we have to ask who profits from the confluence of ecocide, racialized genocide and femicide and how can artists intervene in a global narrative that privileges the few at the expense of the many? Award-winning eco-artist Aviva Rahmani will address these questions in a master class. What are the root narrative drivers? Are there ways to expand the discourse to be more inclusive and democratic? Where do energy concerns and the consequences of climate change and climate refugees fit into our narratives? Aviva Rahmani is convinced: new paradigms are emerging. And art can represent change as a shift in perception.
