What ideological, social and biophysical factors have precipitated the current environmental crises? What leverage is available for transformative practices and imaginaries to overcome the continuous growth of our energy consumption?

The Post Growth exhibition invites us to challenge the dominant narratives about growth and progress, and explore the radical implications of a speculative economic model based on energy emitted by the Sun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The exhibition looks at perspectives for a shift away from the overexploitation of fossil fuels, ancient sunlight, the force on which the reproduction of our societies depends today.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Post Growth is an invitation to a collective and practical examination of the future of life on the planet, the notion of growth in all its facets and implications, the limits of technology, of politics and of our imaginations.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
DISNOVATION.ORG is an artist led action-research collective founded in 2012 in Paris by Nicolas Maigret & Maria Roszkowska. A working group at the intersection of contemporary art, research and hacking. They develop situations of disruption, speculation and debate in order to question dominant techno-positivist ideologies, and to stimulate post-growth narratives.
