  • I Never Promised You a Green Garden

Eva-Maria Lopez

In her artwork, Eva-Maria Lopez maps the changes in vegetation and plants in urban areas or in living rooms to record the loss of biodiversity and the agrochemical industry’s promises of a ‘better world’.

In her projects, Eva-Maria addresses the backstage of the ‘green business’ by subverting the marketing concepts of agrochemical companies and using their logos for ornaments: These ornamental designs look quite harmless and decorative, since they have similarities with motifs in folk art and mandalas – until one becomes aware that each single motif in this series consists of logos from companies that produce or sell glyphosate, or genetically modified plants.

  • SOS as Self Organising System

An XR Austria participant

Extinction Rebellion is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimize the risk of social collapse.

We use a decentralized organizational model called SOS (Self Organising System). This system enables us to harness group wisdom while remaining agile and being able to respond quickly to emerging situations. Locally and globally.

Moderiert von Astrid Dober. Einleitung und Zusammenfassung von Davide Bevilacquia.
