Institute of Anxiety at the FOTOGRAF FESTIVAL #11: Dear earthlings

An invitation to the eleventh edition of the Fotograf Festivalu in Prague.

03.09.2021 —31.10.2021

For the occasion of the Fotograf Festival, the Institute of Anxiety, in co-operation with the artists Karolína Matušková, Lucie Zelmanová and Ondřej Šebestík, has prepared the audiovisual work Sugar be my caramel* Changes of Anxiety — you can find one of its forms in the main exhibition with the sub-title of Earthlings I: Tissues, housed in the National Museum of Agriculture, and another at the exhibition Becoming in the Display gallery in Prague. The video installation was created on the basis of a number of non-expert meetings of people from various different professions, interests and generations in four locations within the Czech Republic, who engaged in a dialogue concerning their own experiences of the ongoing process of climate change. Within the framework of the project, the Institute of Anxiety will also publish a podcast by Ondřej Šebestík.

The eleventh annual Fotograf Festival, entitled “Earthlings” and curated by Lukáš Likavčan, sets itself the goal of showing how the planet itself offers clues, perspectives and communication channels, thanks to which we can become earthlings – competent observers of the ongoing changes within our immediate surroundings, which cannot be understood without the broader planetary contexts (e.g. water shortages, catastrophic floods, soil erosion, problems in agriculture, unbearable summer heat, forest fires).
