This dossier contains a text by the artist who started the ball rolling for this Atlas: Kadir van Lohuizen, who creates art that - in Lippard’s words – can save the planet.
This dossier offers an inspirational interview with Margrit Reuss, who curated Plastic Crush, a Museum of World Cultures exhibition. In this show, produced with Studio Harm Rensink and KODE21 design studio, the museum made a serious, profound attempt to compile a presentation that produces as little waste as possible, with sustainable, environmentally-friendly recycled materials and new, purpose-built parts that are also suitable for reuse. We also discuss our own attempts to create a sustainable touring exhibition in a hackathon and share initiatives in the field of circular exhibition construction, examples of digital exhibitions and articles about the impact of data storage and data centres.
This dossier contains various examples of ways to stimulate behavioural change in visitors. There’s NEMO’s Energy Junkies exhibition, in which the science museum allows visitors to select the extent to which they’ll be confronted by the climate consequences of their choices, there’s the Culture Ferry that brings visitors to various cultural venues using eco-neutral transport, and we share sources linked to behaviour influence and change.
This dossier contains information about that issue: find out how the Rijksmuseum is weaning itself off natural gas, read about how to test the hidden impact in your own building and of course there are various links to information about BREEAM certification and Green Key endorsement.
