We cordially invite you and your friends to the opening of the exhibition, book presentation and discussion on Monday, 19.7.2021 at 7 pm.
Klaus K. Loenhart Technische Universität Graz and terrain: integral designs
Silvia Benedito Harvard University
Nicola Borgmann Architekturgalerie München
Our being-in-the-air shows that all aliveness cannot be separated for a moment from this most intimate and at the same time planetary form of atmospheric interaction and is by no means only contextual but constitutive for all life. This evening will explore breathing and the planetary atmosphere as highly vital leitmotifs for the design of an inclusive future in a new climate regime. In that regard, the atmospheric linkages of future societal activities will be traced. With this awareness of entanglement, the deeply performative characteristics of the air, atmosphere and climate are foregrounded and can be discovered as central agents in the conception and design of our planetary existence. Univ. Prof. Klaus K. Loenhart and Univ. Prof. Silvia Benedito introduce this thematic field in the context of the new publications of their books, in order to discuss with you the creative and social opportunities in a time of escalating global air temperatures.
Accompanying the discussion, we will show photographs by Iwan Baan and Daniele Madia from the two books presented, "BREATHE - Investigations into our Atmospherically Entangled Future" and "Atmospheric Anatomies: On Design, Weather, and Sensation".
