◆ Conference – Crisis of sensibility, empathy and contemporary art: reconnecting with the earth (in French) with Uriel Orlow. September 2, 2023

Since the 1960s, many artists have been questioning human interaction with nature. For many specialists, art has a real social and ecological responsibility. Since creativity and sensitivity make artists particularly aware of the need for ecological balance and increased social action, they have the power - and the duty - to act as social and environmental educators, not least through interdisciplinary cooperation with scientists.

The context of the second reconnecting.earth biennial provides an opportunity to reflect on the following questions: how do these artistic practices differ from other forms of debate? What artistic strategies are used? What is the role of emotions in a process of action and transformation of our relationship to the world, or even "a crisis of sensitivity"? How do practices such as eco-fiction, artivism, documentary or performance art manage to relay these other possible futures, beyond the art world? Are these works confined to institutions and biennials, or do they also have a place in the art market? Finally, and perhaps most importantly, what questions do they raise?
