Uncompromising analyses

How can artists meaningfully relate to climate change and the social and ecological crisis in their themes and practices? This was the question posed nine years ago, when the first edition of Burning Ice was staged. We have now come to the tenth and final edition.

Playing a central role will be artists who over the past few years have demonstrated that art does in fact have a role to play in the transition towards a sustainable society. They go about this by undertaking critical and uncompromising analyses of the current system, by offering perspectives that allow us to deal with confusion and uncertainty, and by sketching out an alternative view of human beings and the world. Heike Langsdorf, David Weber-Krebs, Kate McIntosh, Myriam Van Imschoot and Els Dietvorst are all former guests at Burning Ice. New names signed up for this year’s festival include Benjamin Verdonck, Pieter Ampe, Lotte van den Berg & Daan 't Sas, and Niko Hafkenscheid, Pablo Castilla & Hedvig Biong.
