Online exhibition “ECOLOGICAL ART”
Take time to enjoy a great combination of art, technology and environmental sciences. Today ecological art brings together a large variety of practices that influence the aesthetic, scientific, political and social spheres. There are three types of ecological art practices: documentation, socio-political action and applied research. Thus, ecological art revives the connection with nature and builds interspecies dialogue at a new level. It constantly interacts with civil society, scientists, the education system and environmental organizations. This kind of art is one of the ways to protect the freedom and beauty of the world if we want it to continue to exist. To see the exhibition follow this link
