The current crises have triggered a rapid shift in public sensitivities together with a dramatic increase in anxiety and concern around issues like ecosystem collapse, peak oil and climate change. However, the degree of argumentation and the in-depth understanding of the motives, dynamics and societal values that may have fostered these crises remain extremely reduced, with a primary focus on their surface consequences rather than their various underlying causes.
DISNOVATION.ORG proposes to assemble a "toolkit for eco-political orientation" grounded in the context of these crises and their multiple geopolitical and social implications. A toolkit designed to increase awareness of the multiple root causes of these crises — rather than their mere consequences — as a basis to stimulate and provide a foundation for post-growth imaginaries, models and practices. This will be conceived and expanded through contributive design and activation of games, debates, situations, simulations as well as artworks, while fostering stimulating friction and antagonism between critical theory, art, hard science, speculative fiction, grassroots activism and indigenous knowledge.
