EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN is a project that consists of a series of artistic events and an educational programme that approaches the current issues related to climate change, rejecting alarmism and mirroring all aspects of it on the Earth's landscape.
For its first edition in 2015, Everything Under the Sun gathers artists and specialists in Agora in Berlin in order to investigate ways of discussing and reflect upon this topic.
The world’s climate is in a constant flux since the Ice Age, and it will continue changing. The new levels of precipitation and changing of temperature patterns is bringing drought to numerous lands around the globe, however at the same time it brings fertility and agricultural variety in the Nordic geographies.
For its artistic series, Agora invites artists Dafna Maimon (FI), Egill Saebjörnsson (IS), Polonca Lovsin (SI), Hanne Lippard (NO), Natasja Loutchko (SE) and experts on permaculture and waste management Leonie Woidt-Wallisser (AU) and Alice Grindhammer (DE) to tackle the issue in a participatory, humorous and informative way.
For its educational programme, Agora invites the artist Tue Greenfort (DK), Kultivator (SE), the food specialists Roderick Sloan (NO) and Thomas Harttung (DK).
