Sensing the Planet: Philippe Sands, Against Ecocide | Serpentine

Sensing the Planet (31 October-1 November 2021) was a gathering on climate justice and the intersections of race, art and ecology. Timed to take place just before the intergovernmental climate conference COP26, Sensing the Planet highlighted issues of race and environmental harm as well as the role played by the UK, most prominently the south-west of England, in histories of slavery, empire and climate breakdown. It also championed the role of interdisciplinary artists in imagining new futures built on principles of sustainability and justice.
