Zoë Svendsen

WE KNOW NOT WHAT WE MAY BE

Meaning 2017

Zoë Svendsen 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.

At Meaning Zoë shared with us examples of her work, and involved 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.

Presented in association with Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.
