Beginning on Monday 12th July, the Barbican presents a week-long online festival Brazil: Footprint 0.0. The festival explores Brazil’s specific perspective on the global mobilisation against climate inequalities, in the context of the UN’s upcoming COP26 conference.
Curated by Francesca Laura Cavallo for the Centre for Indigenous and Settler Colonial Studies at the University of Kent in partnership with the Barbican Centre, the programme consists of multiple events, film screenings and will culminate in an online panel discussion.
The online festival is a response to their newly opened exhibition, ‘Claudia Andujar: The Yanomami Struggle’ (The Curve and The Pit, until 29 August), the programme brings together artists, curators and academics to discuss how art addresses questions that go beyond technocratic approaches to climate change: symbiosis, interdependence and the resilience of Indigenous knowledge.
You can find more information about the festival, and watch the online events, via the Barbican website. All events are free of charge and don’t require a ticket. For tickets to the exhibition, please be in contact with a member of the press team.
