Do we unhurriedly turn a blind eye even when the consequences of climate change are becoming increasingly more apparent? The disappearance of major ecosystems, the most dramatic environmental changes and the depletion of fossil fuels condemn the current economic model to collapse. Yet, opposite this all-encompassing apocalyptic landscape stands the possibility of collectively rethinking the future. This entails new ways of relating to others, to time, to death, and to art; that is, new definitions of the human and other forms of life that go beyond the logics of extraction and waste. Thus, twenty years on from the sinking of the Prestige, this Temporary Intensity Zone calls upon the collective potential of a self-organised citizenry facing the life-threatening side of environmental disaster. Yet how is a (social) climate organised? The imaginative, documentary, emancipatory, communicative and historical possibilities of artistic forms are not only vital tools when it comes to building this new future ecology. Today, they are materially inseparable from their nature and are no longer a counter-shape of art but rather the political matter of common work to reproduce life.

When Destiny Catches Up with Us
Desperate Actions Before the Sixth Extinction

When Destiny Catches Up with Us addresses the contributions of popular knowledge and scientific research on the extinction of animals that are key to the biosphere and are often found outside the scope of human perception. Therefore, it sets forth different sessions with talks and concerts that explore in more depth the problem of mass extinction, looking at the disappearance of bees and microorganisms from the ocean. The title of the activity is a translation of the Spanish translation of the film Soylent Green (1973), directed by American film-maker Richard Fleischer.
