In co-operation with the Oulu2026 –organisation the Art Ii Biennial will present an afternoon of art and art/science discussions in Ii, Thursday 16th June. The event will highlight the art and science collaborations of the Biennial.

Hanna Husbergs and Agata Marzecovas project Towards Atmospheric Care provokes discussions over the quality of our collective atmosphere and explores air as a naturalcultural and technoecological phenomenon situated in the nexus of media, science and technological mediation.

Husbergs and Marzecovas performative lecture “A is for Aurora, C is for Care” opens the discussion on air and the sense of change ‘in the air’. Husbergs and Marzecovas claim is, that if we are to form meaningful engagements with air, we need to radically and collectively experiment with thought and practice that position the planetary atmosphere as a shared and indisciplinary concern.

The lecture is followed by a panel discussion with international artists and curators of the Biennial reflecting on air in a way that transcends the isolating effects of data. In the panel we will discuss air as our common human, animal and plant lifesource, which must be accorded a global significance. Art and science collaborations play some part in putting collective responsibility in the air—a crucial goal for the 2020s and beyond.

The panelists: Tina-Marie Friedrich, Hanna Husberg, Agata Marzecova, Gabi Schaffner, Filips Stanislavskis, Minna Rainio, Mark Roberts. Moderator: Jetta Huttunen.

During the event the visitors have a chance to see all the Biennial works situated in Ii.
