Listening to the Anthropocene
This new exhibition of sound and moving image by UK and international artists (who have relationships to locations that have been affected by climate change), presents new or specifically adapted artworks in the nave of Coventry’s iconic Cathedral. The exhibition explores the idea that we have moved into a new geological epoch, the ‘Anthropocene’, marked by the impact of human activities on the Earth.
‘Listening to the Anthropocene’ is originally the title of a significant lecture by artist-geographer AM Kanngieser, which maps the range of recent ‘eco-acoustic practices’ used by artists and others from around the world.
Part of Coventry Biennial 2021.
