By exploring new composition modes, the artists have combined art and nature to produce utopian and experimental, political and social, identity, multicultural, philosophical and narrative visions, in which artifice becomes a metaphor to define the stage of development of humankind, its history, its individuality. And its crisis.
Such crisis is contrasted by a number of practices driven by the idea of political and ecological commitment, with a view to formulating new scenarios, engaging theorists and artists in the front row. Sustainable life patterns that, over time, will allow a forest of urge for freedom and shared rights to flourish, which, through cultural activism, will be able to contrast a situation that could become irreversible.
Urban Forest, through its artists and artworks, shows us a way, a path to follow, to investigate and direct our attention to a new cultural ecology, in order to try and fight an unprecedented environmental crisis by using art.
