Zoë will share...

  • a creative perspective on the relationship we all have with our work
  • her approach to envisioning the future using our hearts as well as our heads
  • the chance to witness her research in action with economist Kate Raworth

Zoë Svendson takes an artistic approach to understanding our world, our lives and the decision-making processes we use to make sense of it all. Her critically acclaimed performance artworks – like World Factory and 3rd Ring Out – explore the relationships we maintain with work and capitalism. Her work is the result of deep collaboration with a wide network of artists and experts.

Zoë will share with us examples of her creativity, and will involve us in the creation of her current work in progress – exploring how future systems will enable us to live and work through the impact of climate change. The development of the work is an open research process towards an event at the Barbican in September 2018, WE KNOW NOT WHAT WE MAY BE. At Meaning, as part of this ‘research in public’, Zoë will be in conversation with renegade economist Kate Raworth, author of Doughnut Economics, exploring the question: ‘what is the best possible economic structure for responding to climate change?’

In addition to this public conversation Zoë will host a series of interactions throughout the day.

Presented in association with Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.
