It is easy to grow numb to the litany of environmental devastation in recent years. The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic killed thirty million people; atmospheric CO2 stands fifty per cent higher than two centuries ago (currently 423.6 ppm); wildfires rage in Chile and Argentina, while 11,300 people were killed by an overnight flood in Derna; less than a tenth of the world’s plastic is recycled; over 75 billion livestock animals are killed every year; the number of coastal ‘dead zones’ increased from 10 in 1960 to 415 in 2023; the US government declared twenty-one species formerly found in its territory extinct in 2023. One can go on, and on, and on.

At the same time, the last thirty years has seen the development of sophisticated radical critiques of environmental degradation and the ‘capitalocene’, the need for struggle to achieve transformation in response to the continued failure of centrists to achieve meaningful reform.

Urban Camp III

Homo prospectus. Seeing into the Future [1] / hu /


The Space of Opportunity presents its third Urban Camp, a series of art workshops in the summer. The first series concentrated on the here and now, on the empirical experience of the urban environment through our senses, while in the second edition we invited the participants to descend into the deep layers of history. It seems logical that after the present and the past, our focus should be on the future: we will continue to use the urban environment as our ‘playground,’ as participants can discover or create unbeaten paths.

Wednesday, 26 June 2024, 17:00 – 21:00
At The Experimental Station for Research on Art and Life

Organised under the frame of the Creative Europe project Architecture, Biodiversity, Culture [ABC]. Building ecological institutions for culture, the event brings together three self-organised practices of civic action that operate at the intersection of different disciplines through collaborative work and ways of coming together that respond to the specific conditions of each site. Driven by an interest and desire to cultivate collaborations, taking care of neighbourhood connections, building temporary urban furniture and installations with local inhabitants, or by developing potential living scenarios for marginalised urban communities, all three projects seek a new language of practice or new practices altogether for imagining and creating different forms of living.

At The Experimental Station for Research on Art and Life at Silistea Snagovului, Václav will document and evaluate pre-selected sites from the vicinity of The Station, including Lake Snagov and other sources of ground water.
