Graphic for event "Critical Zones: Observatories for Earthly Politics"

Joseph Leo Koerner’s curatorial intervention—“Earth Tidings,” a stand-alone exhibit featuring fifteen major paintings and drawings, including Joos van Craesbeeck’s remarkable Temptation of St. Anthony and two works by Caspar David Friedrich and —is finally on view in the large exhibition “CRITICAL ZONES: Observatories for Early Politics” at the Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe. Accompanied by a large catalogue just published by MIT (with three essays by Koerner), the show is largely the brainchild of Bruno Latour and Peter Weibel and concerns the science and politics of climate change. You can watch Koerner’s remarks during the exhibition’s virtual opening here:
