Are we not drawn onward to new erA is a palindrome, both in name and in practice. This performance piece by Belgian experimental art collective Ontroerend Goed (apparently a Flemish play on words, roughly translated to “feel estate”) captures a turning point in Earth’s history, where we as humans must decide whether to step back or plunge forward over the brink of climate catastrophe. Viewable forwards or backwards, the performance asks the audience to consider what it means for humanity to be at a turning point, and “Are our actions irreversible or can we undo them?” (Ontroerend Goed). I look forward to being immersed in this unique artistic exploration of the climate crisis and sharing some of my musings with you afterwards.
