a perfect storm

online | https://aperfectstorm.net/

a perfect storm is a compilation of ideas, combined in a partial and provisional way, emulating the political-atmospheric phenomena it engages. It starts from a seemingly unanswerable question: “What can storms in Brazil tell us about climate changes elsewhere?” In a country once defined as the “Land of the Future” – a land where the future is a promise always about to arrive –, a unique constellation of political and ecological factors, some of which have in the meantime become crises, have fed on each other, converging in a particularly violent storm.

With contributions from thinkers and artists from a variety of different backgrounds, a perfect storm is, for the time being, assembled in three phases – reflections on the ecological crises and the plurality of worlds they bring forward, on extractivism as an interweaving of local and global phenomena, and on the material-semiotic effects of the nation-state as a powerful fiction.
