Workshop & Brainstorm: Make Groninger Museum Break Up with Gas!
June 15th, 2022
Fossil fuel companies clean their image by sponsoring sports events, festivals and schools– a practice known as greenwashing. For a small slice of their enormous PR budgets, oil and gas companies can buy a false image of generosity. When they use cultural institutions to sanitise their reputation, it is artwashing. This is what GasTerra does with the Groningen Museum.
Let’s ban the fossil fuel industry from our cultural institutions! Do you want to fight art washing* by pressuring the Groninger Museum to cut their ties with Gasunie and GasTerra? After two performances this year, Fossil Free Culture Groningen organizes a double trouble event! Starting with an introductory talk about the practice of artistic disobedience, we will brainstorm together about ideas for new performances that will continue to let the museum know that we do not accept their relationship with these gas companies.
Maybe you would even like to be part of the production process of, and/or a performer in, one of our upcoming artistic interventions.
If you are an artist, activist, organizer, incredible idea generator, all the above or none, and you want to break down the fossil fuel industry, you are very welcome!
