First Assembly of the Dark Series: Environmental Justice
Organized in collaboration with Françoise Vergès, Chair Global South(s) at Collège d’études mondiales de la Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme, in the framework of the exhibition Co-Workers: Beyond Disaster at Bétonsalon - Centre for Art and Research (October 8, 2015 - January 30, 2016).
A cartography of polluting industries, intensive agriculture, intensive mining, nuclear power plants, etc. show the flagrant inequalities that exist within the geographical distribution of the polluting industries, often built near impoverished or minority areas. This first assembly will be focused on the consequences of these risky activities on the environment and on their repercussions in terms of public health. Through a series of case studies the assembly will address the notion of environmental justice, green capitalism, North/South divide, or the future of indigenous peoples in relation to environmental transformations.
