Culture in COP15 / Ed Morris, GOOD

A “GOOD” mini-series by Ed Morris on the cultural happenings surrounding COP15:

“I wonder what it would have been like had the museums employed the same resources to do something more radical, such as give the entire space over to one or two artists capable of meaningful transformation, or have Erroll Morris put together a single series of messages from the art world to the people deciding our fate in the Bella Center, or simply shut off all the lights and let people cogitate that: “No more culture, only nature, from now on people.”

Or maybe this just isn’t the right time for the museums. The curators and framers were just doing their job. It’s a big conference, they have to do a big show. But, of course, that was precisely the problem. Meanwhile, I am noticing more and more of these little stickers and messages indicating that inaction might really, truly have its consequences.”
