“When at its most interesting, contemporary art engages in public discourse through questions, proposals, and provocations put forward by individual artists and, to a growing degree, also cross-disciplinary projects. Art enriches our vision of the future by casting light on its many dimensions and opportunities. While voicing a call for responsibility, future sketching is often a collective process that brings people together.”—Leevi Haapala
Published on the occasion of the 58th Venice Biennale and edited by Leevi Haapala and Piia Oksanen, Weather Report—Forecasting Future includes works by artists Ane Graff, Ingela Ihrman, and artist duo Nabbteeri. Bringing together art, science, and humanities, and focusing on environmental phenomena that directly influence our lives, Weather Report—Forecasting Future is themed around the complex and varied relations between the human and nonhuman, in an age when climate change and mass extinction are threatening the future of life on Earth.
