Crowdfunding for art in nature to discuss climate change

This year, it is difficult to escape encounters with the artistic work of Joseph Beuys in German (and a number of international) museums. Beuys grew up in Kleve and Rindern. He has been a founding member of the German Green party. In the 1970s, he was among the first to realize that traditional political parties will not be able to work towards a sustainable ecological future. He promoted a fundamentally different approach turning political art into a key to change our thinking about nature, environment and our way of life.

A German-Dutch team would like to explore some of his ideas via a photographic landscape installation and discuss how his concepts could be made relevant today.
