Exhibition Opening Night
Regenerative Energy Communities and friends welcome you to join them at the Humuspunk Library…a community transition-infrastructure for the ongoingness of the world. Become a friend of the library and loosen up your relationship to energy and agriculture, breakway into a joyful fantasy of queer geochemistries, regeneration, micro energy and creative life. The exhibition is part of the project "Co-Habitation".
Friday, June 9th, 18:00 - 21:00

Art + Science: Regenerative Energy Communities in conversation with Zeenath Hasan from TheDirt
The initiators of the award winning project Co-Habitations introduce the Regenerative Energy Communities Collective. If we start with soil, how can we imagine cohabitations, and community transition-infrastructures to create practices that can flip paradigms, embrace grimy creativity and ferment revolt.
Saturday, June 10th, 13:00 - 14:00

Loose Energy Curriculum Family Workshop: Electric Field with Regenerative Energy Communities
The monumental wind turbine project keeps energy-hungry racial capitalism spinning and obscures the interdependencies of agriculture, communities and energy. We ask how might we retool, rescale and reassemble renewables into regenerative contraptions for community solidarity. Kids are welcome (with adult).
Sunday, June 11th, 11:00 - 13:00

Limited places available, please RSVP :
Meeting point for the workshops: Wilderplatz (next to Zollhaus), Zollstrasse 99, 8005 Zurich
Meeting point for the talk: Schwarzescafé / Luma Westbau, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich

The events are part of the project “Co-Habitation”, which is a critical contemplation on what cities will look like in the future and what challenges society will face in the nearest 100 years. Imagining possible outcomes in the face of ecological crisis aims to open a discussion, explore new perspectives and share knowledge from different disciplines in order to look for solutions collaboratively.

How do we want to live - now and in 100 years? This central question is the focus of the community-based public art project. We rethink the future in collaboration through collective action and art + science practices. The pavilion, in form of a landscape of encounters, is situated at Wilderplatz close to Zurich Main Station. The platform hosts a diverse, participatory program of artistic workshops, discussions, and performances.

We are looking forward to welcome you!
