Green Platform
examines, in an interdisciplinary fashion, the issue of the environment in the dual sense of a crisis in our thermo-industrial society based on non-renewable sources of energy and of an ecological crisis caused by pollution and by the worrying overheating of our planet. The problem of ecology is analyzed and understood in its myriad philosophical, psychological, environmental, economic and social implications. Green Platform defines ecology not merely as a natural science but as a science of interrelations, confines and cross-border osmosis, the focal link in the partnership between nature and culture.

The exhibition presents a series of works by international artists who, acting in the wake of the pioneer experience that developed in the avant-garde movements of the Sixties and Seventies, address the issues of the environment, ecology and sustainability.

Green Platform offers various kinds of active experience: workshops with artists and other players in the environmental associations and NGO's, a series of lectures with experts in various relevant disciplines and the screening of videos and documentaries on environment-related issues.
