“Eco-Visionaries: Art and Architecture after the Anthropocene” at MAAT

During this Spring, MAAT explores the theme of climate change in its second international “manifesto- exhibition” Eco-Visionaries: Art and Architecture After the Anthropocene. In the museum’s first collaboration with several European museums, this multi-venue exhibition invites artists and architects to reflect on the scenarios that await us in a moment of global transformation.

At a moment when climate changes are even more widely felt, Eco-Visionaries launches the debate on a vast array of questions associated to the Anthropocene – the recent designation for a geological period defined by the impact of human action. With contributions from over thirty five artists and architects, the show in Lisbon is the first and most wide-ranging of the four exhibitions that will appear simultaneously in Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Sweden.

The Eco-Visionaries project is centred on current practices that propose critical and creative visions vis-à-vis the environmental transformations that are affecting our planet. At a moment when climate change is more widely felt, this group show launches the debate on a vast array of questions associated to the Anthropocene – the recent designation for a geological period defined by the impact of human action. With contributions from over thirty-five artists and architects, the show in Lisbon is the first and most wide-ranging of curatorial takes also appearing in three other venues: Bildmuseet (Sweden), HeK (Switzerland) and LABoral (Spain).
