Symbioses of Responsibility
George Steinmann, artist-researcher works at the intersection of the Arts and policy-making for Paris COP21, 2015.
George Steinmann, who often works at the intersection of art, science, and politics, explored this question at the COP21 UN Climate Change Conference, where he acted as the first ever official “artistic observer.” Steinmann produced sketches, mind maps, drawings, and photographs, which will be exhibited in an interdisciplinary exhibition in 2016 and 2017.
Symbioses of Responsibility is an exemplary expression of sustainable art; its aim is to broaden the scientific and political debate on climate change from an aesthetic perception and artistic point of view. Steinmann also participated in several panels and talks at Columbia Global Centers Europe, the Grand Palais as part of Solutions COP21, and other institutions in collaboration with the Embassy of Switzerland.
