Unfold. A Cultural Response to Climate Change

Edited by David Buckland and Chris Wainwright

Unfold. A Cultural Response to Climate Change profiles the work of the artists in the Unfold exhibition and also proposes a number of creative and innovative responses to climate change aimed at stimulating discourse and a wider engagement with the climate debate.

The texts by Gerald Bast, Steve Kapelke, Chris Rapley, David Buckland, Chris Wainwright and Helga Kromp-Kolb provoke, within an educational context, a discussion around what are the legitimate agendas for arts education and arts practitioners, in relation to some of the most pressing and urgent issues of our times.

Unfold exhibits the work of 25 artists who have participated in the Cape Farewell expeditions in 2007 and 2008 to the High Arctic and in 2009 to the Andes. Each artist witnessed firsthand the dramatic and fragile environmental tipping points of climate change. Their innovative, independent and collective responses explore the physical, emotional and political dimensions of our complex and changing world stressed by profligate human activity. This body of work addresses a new process of thinking where artists play an informed and significant role through creating a cultural shift, a challenge to evolve and inspire a symbiotic contract with our spiritual and physical world.

The publication has been made possible through a unique collaboration between Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges of University of the Arts London, Columbia College Chicago and University of Applied Arts Vienna, in partnership with Cape Farewell.

Available for £18
