Exhibition: Where will we go?
The City Resilience Profiling Programme (UN-HABITAT/CRPP), one of the resident institutions at the Knowledge Centre, presents the exhibition Where will we go? The human consequences of rising sea levels. The exhibition, which will run in the La Puríssima Pavilion from 18 February to 17 March, is a project by Dutch photographer Kadir van Lohuizen, curated by Jeroen de Vries.
Where will we go? is a visceral and visual photographic essay about the suffering of people who lose their land and their source of income as a result of rising sea levels and coastal erosion. The installation offers extensive visual information about how climate change is already affecting communities in such varied territories as Greenland, Kiribati, Fiji, Bangladesh, the Carteret Islands of Papua New Guinea, the Guna Yala archipelago in Panama, the United Kingdom, and the USA.
Visitors will perceive the huge complexity associated with the forced displacement of people, and the implications of these movements for human rights.
The presence of the exhibition at the Art Nouveau Site is the result of a collaboration agreement between the Fundació Privada Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau and UN-HABITAT/CRPP, with the backing of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Institutional Relations and Transparency, in the form of the Consell Assessor per al Desenvolupament Sostenible de Catalunya (Advisory Council for the Sustainable Development of Catalonia-CADS).
Where will we go? is an activity in the programme of the Forests and Sustainability Hub for 2017, a project promoted by the Diputació de Barcelona provincial council and the Department of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Food of the Generalitat de Catalunya Catalan government.
