ECOLOGY WITHOUT BORDERS.01
Ecology studies interactions among organisms and their environment. In today’s world, the meaning of the term “ecology” has gone beyond the field of biology. Speaking about the ecology in a broad sense, we often have in mind the ethical component. Artists are interested in the complex relationship between humans and the environment, between humans and living creatures. They explore alienation from nature and merging with it; environmental pollution and maintenance of ecological balance.
International Video Art Festival Now&After has been held annually in Moscow since 2011. It is organized by independent nonprofit organization Media Art Centre Now&After. The festival is traditionally being held within a museum space, where during few weeks its program films are being demonstrated as a multi-channel video installation. In 2016 Now&After’16 was shown at the State Darwin Museum under the motto “Ecology without Borders”.Curated by Marina Fomenko
