Geographic Imagination How can one make sense of the climate crisis – environmental, but also political – when confronted with the immense complexity of Earth both in time and space? Two panellists, Rania Ghosn (DESIGN EARTH) and Lukáš Likavčan, speculate on and activate environmental imagination through geographical fiction and comparative planetology. Their research tactics take up history and geographic representation in an attempt to untangle the ways visual culture imagines the Earth and geopolitics of climate emergency.This panel will be moderated by Victoria Douka-Doukopoulou. This conference proposes the idea of ‘magical thinking’ – a belief that thoughts and actions can influence the world – as a provocation. In current dystopian scenarios of the future life on Earth, from environment to democracy, imagining a future worth living might reduce anxiety that paralyses action and create openness to a more inclusive way of thinking. The question that needs answering is what is a future worth living (and for whom), and which tactics could get us there. How do we get from climate emergency and catastrophic populism, fuelled by extractive capitalism, to a world of social/ecological justice and multispecies equality? With focus on artistic research and strategies of visibility and mobilisation that art holds, this forum wishes to open critical discussions and propose possible ways to the future worth living.
