Down to Earth

Climate Art Discourse unplugged

13 August to 13 September 2020

The summer project “Down to Earth” is both a walk-through exhibition with objects and installations occupying the entire ground floor of the Gropius Bau and the Südplatz to its rear as well as the venue for an unplugged programme that changes every day and includes live art, music, lectures and spontaneous interventions along with expert talks and workshops.

Impressions from “Down to Earth”

From 13 August to 13 September 2020, the climate, art and discourse project “Down to Earth” explored how the agenda of a shift in climate policy affects our own “operating system”. We would like to thank all participating artists, experts, visitors, colleagues, partners and interested followers for an exceptional summer project.

The book “Down to Earth” stands on end on a tabletop.

Down to Earth. Entwürfe für eine Kultur der Nachhaltigkeit


“Down to Earth” brings together 14 visions of a culture of sustainability from the arts, from activist contexts and from science and politics that are committed to radical ecological change: away from western thinking that isolates, extracts and exploits elements of life and towards structures that operate holistically and respectfully.

Edited by Thomas Oberender
