Background DEAR2050 Oceans on the rise

Science & Art Exhibition


12 December 21 – 30 January 22 Kunst(Zeug)Haus Rapperswil


Seventy percent of our planet’s surface is covered by oceans. They contain 97% of all water on Earth. These numbers alone show how closely human life is connected to the oceans. Climate change is the biggest challenge our society is currently facing, threatening not only our survival but the health of all ecosystems of the planet. Nowhere is this more evident than with the rapid and devastating decline in the health of oceans, leading to a decline in the health of food systems, economic and geopolitical stability.

“DEAR2050: Oceans on the rise” is an exhibition, a festival of education, cultural events, performances, interactive get-togethers, discussion spaces, and art encounters enabling transdisciplinary collaboration between artists and scientists, highlighting the oceans. The project promotes and supports the creation of sustainable art. It translates scientific knowledge into accessible language and creates direct contact points with climate science for the Swiss audience.
