Stormy Weather looks at pollution and global warming as a political and ethical issue, with all the consequences for land, water, air and living organisms. For decades, the industrialized world has had the largest share of greenhouse gas emissions and has reaped all the benefits. The most vulnerable populations, mostly in poorer countries in the southern hemisphere, are the least responsible for climate change. But they are hit hardest by it and have few options to protect themselves against it.
Museum Arnhem presents the exhibition Stormy Weather: climate change & social justice from 27 July to 13 October. International artists reflect on current climate issues in relation to power inequality in the world, now and in the past. The artworks make it clear that combating climate change above all requires a fairer social and political organization of society.
