25/03 Public Talk

‘Reduction or Reform: Conflict and Opportunity for a modern society’

The dialogs between the fields of ecology, politics, economics, and consumption continue for over decades with their actuality constantly growing. The pace of these dialogs in the context of art and culture is nevertheless quite inert. DeLight is aiming to provoke this dialogue.

Discussing ecological issues today primarily means to talk about (un)sustainability. On one hand there is the possibility of reduction of production and consumption (of fossil fuel, meat, plastic and basically all the inorganical products which can’t be integrated in an ecological circle). On the other hand today’s technological develop- ment strives for consistent consumption without any sacrifice but with less negative consequences for the environment (ecological substitutes: e-cars, LED light bulbs, organic food etc.)
