"If a prospect is not a prophecy, it is a view"
Panel moderated by Adelina von Fürstenberg with the participation of Denys Zacharopoulos, Art Historian and International Curator, the artists Sheba Chhachhi living and working in New Delhi and Matt Mullican living and working in New York and Berlin.
ART for The World creates cultural projects for large audiences, with contemporary artists and filmmakers from all the horizons. It’s latest film production Interdependence raise awareness on Environment and Climate Change underlining the interdependence between Humans and Nature.
The sphere of art is not only limited to beauty but embraces everything which is shared in life – such is the content of art and science, as mentioned in the Art. 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Denys Zacharopoulos has developed the panels's title inspired by Oppenheimer's text “Prospects in the Arts and Sciences”, where the scientist raised the question of singular views of the world which offer awareness of people’s lives, intuition and imagination. For Zacharopoulos the prospect to move from an Ego-logical world to an Ecological one is what artist can offer as a means to accept positively what we don’t know and transform criminal ignorance into positive awareness. Art can offer a tiny little space that remains always outside the map, the list, bureaucracy and institutionalization, giving the power to surprise a person and allow for him or her to be surprised.
Matt Mullican has presented his universe where he embraces all the elements of our daily life, city, nature, arts, sports, politics, life, death, etc. In today’s world we are living in a pictured universe of the internet and the Iphone, our Temporal Experience of the world is not physically in front of us any more. It is on a screen. The difference between the Pictured Reality and Objective Reality is becoming less and less Important. What is more important is how we feel toward what see. We want to feel good when we look at a picture. Even if it’s not there!
Sheba Chhachhi showed excerpts from her large scale immersive installations on issues of ecology, which take on new significance in the pandemic today. The pandemic has made transparent the critical structuring principle of our planet: interdependence. Inter-disciplinarity, sensorial, bodily encounters and dialogic methods as shown in her work, raises awareness, but art should not be instrumentaliized.
