The desire to understand and communicate climate change (among other things) has attracted researchers, artists, and scientists to travel to icy landscapes. In this session, we will take up a central theme of the research network, involving questions about why and how one might ‘go there’. What can only be achieved in the field, whether for art or science? We will consider different practices that engage with these questions, and consider the infrastructure and consequences of field work, with particular attention to the Antarctica Biennale.
In this panel discussion, we will hear contributions from Klaus Dodds, Esther Kokmeijer, Jean de Pomereu, and Nadim Samman, then open for a group discussion.
