Climate Care: Digital Archive Launch

Join us for the launch of Floating’s Climate Care 2019 digital archive!

Gilly Karjevsky and Rosario Talevi will introduce the digital archive in conversation with ATLAS/STUDIO and artists involved in Climate Care 2019.

Climate Care – A Curriculum for Urban Practice was a 10 day public programme at the Floating University Berlin curated by Gilly Karjevsky and Rosario Talevi. The programme explored correlations between environment, urban practice and education for climate challenges. Climate Care brings the affirmative attitude of care discourse into climate topics, tackling not only environmental issues, but caring for the entangled social, political and economic climates that surround us today. Taking on the site and situation in the rain water collecting basin of Tempelhofer Feld as a starting point, the newly formed Floating e.V. focused on environmental awareness through caring for relationships, situations and the places in which technologies, ecologies and humans meet. Climate Care invited the wider public to inhabit the site by making and being together, forming lasting human and non-human bonds.

Following the conclusion of the 2019 festival, the digital archive was conceptualised by ATLAS/STUDIO (Lucía Alonso & Ernesto Bauer) and programmed by Lucas Pose, with graphic design by Roman Karrer. The online repository archives the activities that inhabited the basin through images, videos and text documentation: from hot-compost-making, experimenting with bio-materials, the baking of urban hives, weather writing or “tuning-in” methods, reading aloud and looking at care on a planetary scale.
