SPVH CONFERENCE
RENEWABLE ENERGY / RENEWABLE CULTURE

November 29-30, 2013
MSU Zagreb

which initiates a 3 year project converging art and science at the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb:

SOLAR POWERED VERNACULAR HOUSE 2013-2015

Twenty current positions reflecting the sustainable use of renewable energies and practices in our everyday professional and private lives will be presented and discussed during the two conference days in the Gorgona Hall at the MSU, 10 am to 5 pm. The aim is to accelerate the process of thinking about renewable energy and sustainability at the micro and macro levels. International and Croatian speakers will cover a spectrum of themes, focusing on interdisciplinary artistic practices and new models for social and political organizing. Conservation, energy production and consumption, the environmental impact of the food chain, as well as alternative methods of building construction – including the energy “overhaul” of existing buildings and public institutions – will be featured, all in the context of the new economic energy models of civil society in development. Both days will culminate in plenary discussions aimed at actively engaging the audience.
