Midden in de tentoonstelling "Climate as Artifact - Klimaat als mensenwerk’ organiseren we een middag waarbij dialoog vanuit verschillende perspectieven (kunst, wetenschap en maatschappij) centraal staat.
Samen met kunstenaars Esther Kokmeijer, Nishiko, ontwerpers Aliki van der Kruijs, Jos Klarenbeek en gasten stellen we de vraag: How to (re)gain placement within nature?

Het eerste deel van de middag draait rondom het delen van verbeelding en kennis over mondiale golfstromingen met oceanograaf Gerbrant van Vledder, zee-kleuren specialist Hans van der Woerd en Henrik Richter-Alten, over duurzaam zeetransport.
In de pauze bezoeken we de verschillende werken in de tentoonstelling.
Het tweede deel gaat over stromingen in de kunst, en wat de verbinding van kunst met wetenschap kan toevoegen aan maatschappelijk dialoog, met filmmaker Marleen van der Werf en curator Roel Arkesteijn (Stroom, De Domijnen).

Speciaal voor kinderen:
We gaan deze middag de outrigger kano van de Marshall Eilanden inwijden. Wil jij ook helpen? Neem dan herfstbladeren en kastanjes mee, dan gaan we mooi kransen maken die we gaan gebruiken voor deze bijzondere viering!

He is specialist in the field of sea waves and their impact on coastal systems. He is guest researcher at TU Delft. His work is at the interface of research and application and, more recently, at the interface of art and science too.

Artists collective Satellietgroep (The Hague, 2006) explores the sea, coastal transitions, climate change and the role of mankind in these processes in the Netherlands and abroad. In 2018 we rethink our perceptions of culture and nature with artists, designers, scientists and audiences. One of the questions is: Who is nature?
