Alexandra Papademetriou

The Degrowth Toolbox for Artistic Practices

 

ABSTRACT

The purpose of this artistic research is to formulate a conceptual framework for creative and exhibitionary practices aimed towards degrowth, while simultaneously composing a toolbox for artists, curators, as well as institutions, aimed towards designing ethical and sustainable creative practices during the pandemic and beyond. The approach delineated within this toolbox is two-pronged: first, offering a set of considerations and questions for artworkers to use when designing a project; and second, proposing specific, concrete and practical actions art workers may take towards ethical and sustainable creative and exhibitionary practices.
