Arte y Responsabilidad Cultural. La Tierra es un ser vivo unico; no replicable.

La percepción del mundo como un organismo vivo ha cambiado para siempre nuestros prejuicios alrededor de la idea de diferencia. Las diferencias negativas son destructivas—generan entropía. Solo las diferencias positivas generan diferencias creativas, complexidad, vida, memoria, cultura, arte.

Olafur Eliasson dice:

“Tengo la esperanza de que Luz Verde (Green Light) iluminará algunos de los retos y responsabilidades derivadas de la actual crisis de refugiados en Europa y en todo el mundo. La luz verde es un acto de bienvenida. Se dirige tanto a los que han huido de la dificultad y de la inestabilidad en sus países de origen, como a los residentes de Viena. Se les invita a participar en la construcción de algo de valor a través de un proceso lúdico y creativo. Trabajando juntos en un contexto artístico, en diálogo con los visitantes habituales del Augarten, los participantes construyen a la vez una lampara modular y un ambiente comunitario, en el que la diferencia no sólo es aceptada, como abrazada. La luz verde intenta cuestionar los valores de similitud y diferencia en nuestra sociedad, ayudando a dar forma a nuestros sentimientos de identidad y unión”.

Olafur Eliasson says:

“It is my hope that Green light will shine light on some of the challenges and responsibilities arising from the current refugee crisis in Europe and throughout the world. Green light is an act of welcoming, addressed both to those who have fled hardship and instability in their home countries and to the residents of Vienna. It invites them to take part in the construction of something of value through a playful, creative process. Working together in an artistic context, in dialogue with the regular visitors of the Augarten, participants build both a modular light and a communal environment, in which difference is not only accepted but embraced. Green light attempts to question the values of similarity and otherness in our society and to help shape our feelings of identity and togetherness.”

Following the unprecedented success of the exhibition OLAFUR ELIASSON: BAROQUE BAROQUE, organized by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) and the Belvedere at the Winter Palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy in Vienna, TBA21 is pleased to announce Green light, a new socially conscious endeavor by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson at TBA21–Augarten in Vienna.

Olafur Eliasson Recruits Refugees to Assemble Symbolic Green Lights

by Carey Dunne on April 4, 2016. Hyperallergic

In February, in the midst of Europe’s worst refugee crisis since World War II, Austria issued a cap on the number of asylum seekers it would accept: just 80 per day. The decision to tighten border controls, made in the wake of 90,000 asylum claims in the country, last year, sparked outrage throughout the EU.

In response to Austria giving migrants a red light, Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson decided to create a “Green light,” a crystalline polyhedral LED light made from recycled materials. Over the course of three months, the lights will be assembled by refugees and migrants, working alongside local university students in a weekly workshop at Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) in Vienna.
