JONAS STAAL | CLIMATE PROPAGANDAS, VIDEO STUDY

Information on the activity

January 14, 2023 to March 4, 2023

From January 14 to March 4, 2023.

The work Climate Propagandas, Video Study explores how the climate crisis is interpreted and weaponized within various ideological discourses.

While liberal climate propaganda argues that ecological collapse is the responsibility of human individuals, rather than extractivism corporations, libertarian climate propaganda considers climate breakdown as a new resource for geomarkets and interplanetary colonization. And while conspiracist climate propaganda claims climate change is nothing but a hoax to enforce population control, eco-fascist climate propaganda takes it as an opportunity to double down on the question of who, in ecosystem collapse, has the racial right to survive and who does not.
