Artist book and lecture-performance by Jeroen Peeters and Jozef Wouters, 2015
In December 2014 Jozef Wouters visited the UN climate summit in Lima. During these two weeks he collected 80 metaphors used to imagine and discuss climate change. These were translated into a booklet of images and distributed at the end of the conference as a ‘draft for further negotiation.’ In a correspondence with Wouters, Jeroen Peeters commented on reports of the climate debate in Belgian newspapers. How do we imagine a problem that remains hard to imagine? Artist book, blog and correspondence were the basis for the lecture-performance The Metaphors.
