An eleven day art performance during COP27 (Conference of the Parties). COP27 is the 27th annual UN meeting on climate, taking place in Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt.

.Johannes will turn the 3068 pages of the IPCC report into confetti as an example of the lack of sense of necessity. You are invited to join and discuss the Climate, Environment, Our Responsibility. 


“Art is about reflection and our perception of time and space, framed by our thoughts. Art is a way to stimulate self-reflection, to open our perspective of time and space. That’s why the question is not only what you take away from my work as a viewer, but also about what we create together. We look at our blind spots, the power structures, the patriarchal structures in our society.”

The Guardian described the sixth IPCC-report as the most urgent warning yet of major unavoidable and irreversible climate changes.
