Today we are aware that a catastrophic crisis is not a scenario of the distant future, but that the intensification of weather-related disasters such as bushfires, hurricanes, floods and heatwaves are already affecting us in real terms. Not only has humanity caused the extinction of numerous animal and plant species and irrevocably damaged the planet's ecological systems, but our way of life is also undermining the conditions for our own survival. In line with the scientific perspective, more and more artists believe that our civilisation has reached a critical threshold.

This course raises the question of how art can engage in this highly urgent discussion of our time. How can we mediate scientific facts through artistic means, and how can artists collaborate with scientists?

One of the aims of the course is to broaden our perception of these pressing issues by working for a week in a transmedial and collaborative approach on site at the Abisko Scientific Research Station. This study trip is an essential part of the course in week 41 and compulsory for all participants as we will develop projects on site. At the station students will gain insight into the methods and ethics of environmental research in the context of climate science and art engaged in this field.

Students will be encouraged to participate in fieldwork and to create and document projects that will be discussed in the group in order to build and deepen a critical dialogue in the context of climate research and art working in this field. The study trip focuses on artists' experience and perception of the Arctic landscape as an active situatedness that transforms physical conditions and phenomenological situations into political and/or poetic artistic actions. The findings will be presented in an exhibition format, at KMD or in an online exposition.

The Abisko Scientific Research Station can be reached by train via Stockholm and from there via Abisko Östra, the nearest railway station, which is within walking distance. Student travel and accommodation costs are covered by the course budget, only the meals have to be organised by the participants themselves.
