‘Pleuriversum’ plays with the issue of a global ecological crisis. Looking at our earth as a closed system in which small changes in one place can also have an effect elsewhere – positive or negative.
From the visual arts, social design, performance art, fashion, philosophy, literature and science, the art event offers the visitor a kaleidoscopic spectrum designed as an ecological system in itself. Starting with our own body as a self-regulating cycle, zooming out further and further into the world around us, the manifestation meanders through the entire Arti building as one sensory laboratory. With stimulating ideas and playful, surprising insights from cultured meat ice cream and beauty articles from body juices, to a ‘Groningen ditch’ and its inhabitants and the consequences of nuclear disaster Fukushima.
